Vivex Tissue and Organ Donor Bank has been located in the University of Miami Life Science Building just north of downtown Miami. Recently the company purchased office and warehouse space in North Miami and is renovating the entire building for their Miami headquarters. The company is focused on employee communication and collaboration that is evident in the efforts being made to create environments throughout the facility that encourages staff engagement.
In the initial build-out, Midtown Video is creating three sophisticated and versatile video teleconferencing meeting rooms utilizing the floor plans provided by the company and their building contractors. Two large executive conference rooms are being outfitted with Panasonic projectors and Draper screens; pan, tilt, zoom web cameras, and professional sound equipment utilizing ceiling mics for the participants. Each room can be controlled with the Crestron touch panels, occupancy sensor, and offers Air Media wireless presentation. Webinars can be conducted with a myriad of personal devices (BYOD). These rooms will be available for approximately 12 people in the meeting.
Adjacent to the two conference rooms is a multi-purpose, stand-alone staff break-room that can be combined with the conference rooms to create an even bigger area for company-wide meetings and training sessions of more than 40 staff members. The break-room video and audio system consist of two large-screen Samsung displays measuring 65″ and 85″ mounted with Chief hardware. Conference audio system components include BIAMP, Crown amplifier and QSC speakers to create professional sound quality which is always one of the biggest challenges in any AV integration project. The room can be set up in many seating styles such as classroom, auditorium, or conversational tables and chairs.
When the rooms are completed, Midtown Video will be building out several more huddle-spaces and break-out rooms for remote teleconferencing and in-house collaboration for the Vivex teams.
“The systems are working great, [we] have satisfied leadership with technology capabilities as expected and the rooms are being used as planned. [Our] first All-hands meeting had both in-person and remote participants. Very happy and appreciative!”
