The Brief

Peninsula wanted to improve its ability to deliver engaging presentations, meetings and staff development seminars in its Manchester offices, as it recognised the central role that internal communication and collaboration play in driving business processes in the professional services sector.
Peninsula’s requirements included projectors with multiple input options, dry wipe projection surfaces and integrated audio systems. All of this needed to fit unobtrusively into the various rooms, maintaining the professional look and feel of the offices, but without ease of access and use being compromised.
Viewpoint’s extensive installation experience ensured it won the contract to deliver the project.

The Solution

Training Rooms

The training room systems consist of NEC projectors ceiling mounted projecting onto Borks dry wipe projection surfaces. Bespoke floor mounted connection plates are cabled through desk modules to allow easy connection of laptop/PC from above the desk. An induction loop system comprising of amplifiers, ceiling mounted microphones and under carpet copper loop tape was installed ensuring that users with hearing aids were not disadvantaged.

Boardroom

The boardroom system consists of all of the functionality installed in the conference rooms, with the addition of automated lighting control, and wireless keyboard and mouse systems to remotely control installed dedicated room PC. Audio is reproduced via Denon stereo amplification as the split fold room scenario is not required.

Executive Lounge and Working Areas

24 full High Definition NEC LCD displays were installed throughout the building, all fitted with digital signage receivers to allow the display of data statistics, business related messages and Freesat television all delivered using a Tripleplay server system over IP. The clients IT Team are now in total control of what is displayed at any screen across the building, including the boardroom and conference rooms.

Conference Rooms

The conference room is a large room, sub divided by a foldable partition wall to give flexible options – using as one large room or dividing into two smaller rooms with independently useable AV systems. Each room incorporates an Epson video and data projector mounted within a Draper orbiter ceiling lift installed into the suspended ceiling, allowing the projector to be rotated into the ceiling void when not in use. Images are projected onto automated ceiling recessed projection screens.

Connection plates are fitted into floor boxes in different locations throughout the rooms allowing connection of laptops at lectern and table positions with the ability to connect secondary displays at lectern positions for use as confidence monitors.

Flush mounted JBL ceiling speakers reproduce audio from a clearone DSP with integrated four channel 100v line amplifier, again induction loop systems are installed and integrated. Input selection comes from DVD players, digital signage receivers, dedicated room PCs and laptop input connections. An AMX control system allows easy control of all equipment including simple reconfiguration of the different room scenarios, with automatic switching and audio/video control all achieved using touch screen control panels.
