Agnico Eagle Mines 2014

Advanced designs and installs a complete video conferencing system and Prysm Collaboration Videowall to update Agnico Eagle’s Toronto executive boardroom

About Agnico Eagle Mines

Agnico Eagle started in 1957, when mining legend Paul Penna brought together his silver-producing interests in Cobalt, Ontario with his gold exploration activities in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec. The eventual merger of Agnico Mines Limited with Eagle Gold Mines formed Agnico Eagle, today one of the largest gold mining companies in the world.  Its seven mines are 100% owned gold deposits located in Canada, Finland and Mexico, with exploration and development activities in each of these regions as well as in the United States.


The Opportunity

Agnico Eagle recently set out to replace their 10-year-old AV system in their Toronto executive boardroom. In doing so, they wanted to be sure to incorporate the latest, most innovative display and video conferencing technology on the market.

 

The Advanced Solution

The solution envisioned by Advanced features an all-new video conferencing and control system, including a SMART 84″ Interactive Flat Panel Display and SMART Meeting Pro software for video conferencing and presentations, a Crestron Wireless Touch Panel and Processor for control, as well as Sony Hi-Res camera and Apple TV system for high-definition video streaming. The main attraction, a 9’ x 6’ high Prysm Collaboration Videowall, sits in the wall at the head of the executive table.

The Prysm Collaboration Videowall includes in a 5×4 tile configuration made up of 20 TD2 tiles, a videowall controller, interconnect cabling and a decorative skin. With a lifecycle of 5-6 years, Prysm technology is extremely energy-efficient, using less power than the common household hair drier.

What’s more, Advanced designed the Prysm Videowall so that it recesses into the wall behind it, appearing as if the digital signage is built into the building’s infrastructure!
