Scotiabank was looking for the most effective way to connect employees and simultaneously showcase their innovative IT solutions. The Bank needed a solution that could be used on a daily basis by staff and on occasion for town hall meetings. To meet this requirement, a variety of audiovisual systems would combine to create a robust and integrated solution that delivered. Future-proofing the system for compatibility with upcoming AV technologies was also an important factor to ensure a long life of showcasing the Bank’s technology innovations.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Scotiabank turned to the experts at Advanced to complete the AV installation within their boardroom and large public meeting room. The innovative boardroom was to be used to showcase the Bank’s technology achievements and to exhibit new products to executives and regional managers. The AV system that would be deployed within the space had to match the high-tech offering that would be showcased within it.
Advanced installed a state-of-the-art videoconferencing system, complete with a room automation solution, that allowed staff to deliver dynamic presentations easily and seamlessly. The boardroom was also equipped with SMARTboard interactive whiteboards to promote effective collaboration among the group, making it easy to display new products and solutions to participants. The innovative boardroom increased productivity by supporting and connecting distributed teams via video and teleconferencing solutions.
For town hall and other large meetings, Advanced installed high-lumens projectors and high-quality screens to showcase the Bank’s IT innovations. The room was equipped with a leading-edge audiovisual solution that could accommodate intimate meetings during regular work hours and be easily converted to a large presentation space for special events and larger assemblies, such as town halls.
