SERIOUS COLLABORATION SOLUTIONS FOSTER TEAM-BASED CREATIVITY WITHIN THE TOY INDUSTRY
From toys and games to television programming, motion pictures, digital gaming and a comprehensive licensing program, Hasbro provides children the world over with entertainment of every kind. The company’s innovative, well-known and most popular toy brands include Transformers, Littlest Pet Shop, Nerf, Playskool, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, Magic: The Gathering and Monopoly. The Hasbro Studios division develops and produces television programming for worldwide markets.
Searching for the most effective way to connect remote employees to accelerate innovation through collaboration, Hasbro needed a sophisticated videoconferencing solution in both their Montréal and Mississauga, Ontario offices. The system needed to be robust and easy to use and manage through a room automation system.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
To achieve their goals, Hasbro turned to Advanced to design and install cutting-edge AV collaboration solutions. The conference and meeting rooms in both locations were equipped with state-of-the-art videoconferencing systems complete with flat-panel screens allowing local Hasbro staff to connect with their distributed teams easily and visually exchange ideas.
To enhance the videoconference experience, Advanced installed sound amplification technology with a sophisticated button microphone system supporting easy, two-way conversation and ensuring each participant could clearly hear the meeting or presentation that was underway. With the installation of high-end projectors and screens, Hasbro team members could now collaborate and present ideas in a cohesive and creative way.
