Drew Marine – Whippany, New Jersey
Drew Marine is a recognized leader in providing technical solutions and services to the global marine industry. Located in Whippany NJ, Drew Marine hired McCann Systems to design an Executive Board Room with full video teleconference capabilities as well as a presentation meeting room.
Drew Marine’s Executive Board Room is located on the 2nd floor of their New Jersey based office building. The front wall features two sixty-inch 1080p LG LCD monitors with a HD Tandberg videoconference camera. The displays and camera are gently recessed into the wall to create a sleek look.
The indirect video conferencing light fixtures light the occupant’s faces at the correct angle to prevent deep shadows under the eyes as well as keeping the light out of the iris of the camera creating an ideal videoconference scenario.
The tabletop wireless Revo Labs microphones are the perfect solution for this room. The microphones feed the IP based audio conference system, allowing for a robust and clear connection that is able to handle their global network. The RF shielding also prevents interference with smartphones or other similar devices.
Program audio, such as laptop, cable box’s, and DVD’s can be heard from the front in wall JBL speakers. The in ceiling JBL speakers are used for the audio and videoconferencing system to provide uniform coverage throughout the room.
The acoustical tiles that were used on the ceiling help soften the noise reflection in the space.
A Creston AV-2 controls the Executive Board Room, with a wireless Creston TPS-8X touch panel. The touch panel controls all video and audio routing, conference call dialing and volume control.
Located on the other side of the 2nd floor is the presentation meeting room featuring a 52” wall mounted 1080p LG display. This room is used for more intimate conversations and presentations. As a secondary conference room the wall mounted display gives perfect viewing angles to all occupants.
