A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor

Starlite Productions Breathes Life Into Conference Room

Morning meetings that make you reach for the snooze button are a thing of the past. The hour-long presentation scheduled after lunch starring the guy who should stick to bedtime stories just stimulated your mind more than that $4 double espresso you bought on your break. And the room with the nice furniture and smell of importance just featured a training video that gave the IMAX movie you saw over the weekend a run for its money.
Okay, maybe not all nine-to-fivers could make such claims, but those who visit the conference room of a New Jersey accounting firm, which is the site of Starlite Productions’ most recently completed project, just might.
The leading New Jersey production and integration company answered the call of local accounting firm Bowman & Co. LLP to transform their on-site conference and training room into a cutting-edge, multi-purpose facility.
“We wanted to use new technology since we expanded the room to make it more user-friendly,” said Robert E. Biddle, the firm’s president.
To meet Biddle’s request, Starlite incorporated advanced technology into a sleek and simple design, allowing the flexibility of multiple room configurations depending on the scenario. Two Da-Lite Advantage® Electrol® 100″ recessed electric screens sit on either side of the 1500 square foot room to accommodate presentations using a conventional seating arrangement. They receive information from two Eiki LC-XG400 projectors mounted with Draper Phantom Model B motorized ceiling recessed supports, allowing them to remain hidden when not in use. For larger presentations with alternate room configurations, four Sharp LCD displays rest on swivel mounts with adjustable arms, so there is never a bad seat in the house. A SMART sympodium with an interactive pen display makes adding or changing notes during a presentation easy, while allowing easy integration of outboard devices like laptops. And 16 Tannoy CVS6 ceiling speakers provide superior sound from all sources while remaining completely discreet.
But the star of the show is the innovative Crestron® TPS-6X 6″ wireless touch panel controller, which interactively manages all of the facility’s screens, projectors, computers and inputs. This controller, which boasts an impressive graphics display and simple interface, makes even the most-advanced presentation a piece of cake. By communicating with a hidden rack unit that houses the “brains” of the design (i.e. the processors and computers for each component), the user has full control of each aspect of the presentation through the Crestron’s touch panel. This centralized and wireless device eliminates the need for additional remotes, cable clutter and set up time.
Starlite Productions created the design from scratch based on the firm’s needs and budget, with the goal of taking something technically difficult and simplifying it substantially. In doing so, they made each feature incredibly accessible and customizable, sure to please both novices and techies alike. Since the completion of the project shortly before the New Year, the firm has used the room a number of times and is pleased with the result.
“We are super-pleased and glad to recommend Starlite to any of their clients,” Biddle said. “They did a great job.”
