For Meunier Carlin & Curfman (MCC), moving to a new office provided the perfect opportunity to add a state of the art multimedia system. However, MCC wanted to utilize its existing video conferencing software to its full potential without spending thousands of extra dollars. The firm chose LMI Systems, Inc., to equip the new facility with full multimedia and AV installations in the main MCC board rooms and five other meeting spaces.
“We were looking for a contractor who not only had a good price but who also had people who would partner with us in design, implementation and maintenance,” said Jon Wyche, IT Director at MCC. “LMI Systems helped us feel confident about the long-term success of our audiovisual needs.”
Cutting Travel Costs
Instead of utilizing a video conference system to its full capabilities, MCC was using its current system for one-on-one meetings in-house only. In turn, the firm was spending travel dollars to fly employees to meet with clients. LMI worked with MCC’s team to design a system that not only reduced travel costs but also allowed the firm to hold team meetings with several employees and/or clients during a seamless transition over the new system.
In the two main boardrooms, LMI installed a unified communications system with Vaddio WideSHOT USB cameras mounted on the walls above dual flat-panel monitors with HDMI/VGA connections, allowing presentations to move seamlessly from a laptop to the monitors. For crisp, clear audio and video communications, USB connections and four Clock Audio microphones were hardwired into the table using Blue Jeans video conferencing software.
