XANTECH PRODUCTS CHOSEN FOR STATE-OF-THE-ART TRAINING ROOMS FOR THE SARASOTA OFFICE OF FCCI INSURANCE GROUP

Sarasota OfficeINFOCOMM, ORLANDO, FL, June 17, 2009 — The corporate headquarters and Florida Regional Office of FCCI Insurance Group (FCCI) in Sarasota, Florida, recently upgraded three of its training/conference rooms with state-of-the-art high-tech solutions from Xantech Commercial, a global leader in the field of audio/video remote control and distribution for 40 years. The installation was completed by Largo, Florida-based Technical Resource Group (TRG).

FCCI’s Sarasota office/corporate headquarters has three meeting rooms specifically designated for teleconferencing, group collaboration and corporate training. In the past, FCCI rented racks of wireless microphones from TRG for various functions and meetings. This relationship prompted FCCI to contact TRG System Design/Engineer Keith Gilliam to discuss the organization’s expanding media needs. FCCI was searching for a system that would be flexible enough to accommodate different and changing technical needs. Since various trainers and employees use the rooms, it was imperative that the new system be easy to use. The new A/V system was designed around a centrally located equipment rack, providing each training room with its own control system with access to the equipment rack via the Xantech CSPLCD39GW Commercial Touchscreen Display, Xantech CRMWIC Commercial Room Monitor/Web Intelligent Controller modules and Xantech IPRS23202 Xtralink IP modules.

The system also consists of six Sennheiser EW100 series wireless microphones with antenna distribution, which can be configured to any room via the Biamp AudiaFLEX with a Volume/Select 8 wall panel in each room. Each room is equipped with an Eiki LCD or DLP Projector, permanently mounted, transporting video over CAT5 protocol to the Analog Way QVP421 video switchers for each room. Two of the training rooms incorporate ceiling microphones for teleconferencing from the Biamp AudiaFLEX Digital Signal Processor System, which consists of various inputs, outputs and the teleconferencing modules.

Gilliam stated, “The Xantech CRMWIC and LCD Panels were the most logical answer to pull all these different pieces of equipment together and make the system easy for the trainers and other personnel to use. Rick Seegull of Xantech was a great help to Technical Resource Group, consulting on the functionality requirements of the room and offering the best Xantech solution for the application. The ability to program much of the CRMWIC from TRG’s offices remotely – an hour and half away from the client – was a definite bonus.?

Everything within the system is on the LAN Network and the CRMWIC, making it virtually a plug-and-play installation. The trainers are able to control the projectors, video switchers, digital signal processor, teleconferencing and room setup via the CRMWIC and the Xantech LCD Touch Screen Panel, triggering each programmed event.

Gilliam: “FCCI’s employees like the web interface and the timed events powering down the projectors at the end of the day and warming the projectors up before training sessions, as well as the one-touch room setup presets for each training room. The setup time for each training session is now next-to-nothing. The trainer/presenters can arrive and connect their laptops at the beginning of the session and set up the room configuration from the LCD Panel/CRMWIC, and everything is ready. And the trainers have the ability to dial the Teleconferencing sessions from the LCD Panels. A true all-in-one panel!?
