The Brief

When Officescape, a leading interiors design and fit out company, were contacted by their client, Ransomes Jacobson to provide a solution to their in house presentation and client entertainment facility they turned to Technical Display Systems for assistance in providing a solution to the client’s needs.

The brief was to provide a system that would give a ‘Wow’ factor using the latest technology but be so simple to use that anyone could make presentations with the minimum of technical knowledge.

The equipment had to be invisible when not in use but at the touch of a button produce full HD resolution images from a presenter’s laptop anywhere around a 21 seater table.  There was also a need to allow audio conferencing to take place with the same flexibility.

Our Approach

The solution Technical Display Systems proposed included a high powered WUXGA Hitachi projector mounted on a ceiling lift which remained out of sight when not in use and a 3.3m tab tensioned electric screen which also hid in the ceiling when not in use.

The system incorporates Kramer matrix switchers to handle the HDMI and VGA inputs and AMX control with an Apple iPad for the user interface.

The audio conferencing is handled by a Revolabs Fusion 8 system which allows for full flexibility of delegate configuration over the seating layout and audio replay is via Armstrong ceiling speakers which match the ceiling tile finish.

The Result

As a leading global manufacturer of high end golf course equipment and grounds maintenance machinery, Ransomes needed a client facility at their Ipswich office in keeping with the global clients that they were regularly being asked to entertain.

The project was completed within a very tight time scale and the result is a very classy environment, at the cutting edge of technology, in keeping with their Global brand and a cost saving for Ransomes over the longer term as they are now able to entertain guests in house.
