APG Electric Builds State-of-the-Art Conference Room for New Engineering Division Using a Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC Processor

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA – MAY 2014: Based in Clearwater, Florida and founded in 1984, APG Electric has grown from its humble beginnings into one of the Sunshine State’s leading contractors, with 250+ employees and annual sales in excess of $40 million. As the industry has advanced, APG has added in-house expertise that it formerly subcontracted, including an Audio/Visual division that joined the firm two years ago. As part of that process, APG Electric recently added a new engineering department and a new 22-room extension to house it. Included within the new office space is a state-of-the-art conference room, which will serve as a showcase for clients who are considering their conference room options and as a means to discuss and approve changes between the office-based and the field-based staff. To ensure that audio performance and voice intelligibility is excellent, APG Electric put a Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC Dante networked audio processor at the heart of the new conference room.

“Our goal was to build in the latest and greatest technology,” said James Wagoner, technology programmer at APG Electric. “We wanted to include all of the features that our clients might like to include so that they can make intelligent choices about what they want. I’ve installed literally hundreds of Symetrix SymNet audio DSP, and they’ve always been reliable and easy to configure. The very few times where I ever had an issue, Symetrix was right on top of it. Based on that experience and relationship, I specified the SymNet Radius AEC on faith. I’m very pleased with its performance and it makes our teleconferencing audio transparent and effortlessly intelligible.”

“The conference room really has two purposes,” said Larry Stephen, technology account manager at APG Electric. “First, we want to make our clients aware of the technology solutions that are available to support their communication needs. Including high-quality Symetrix audio processing is part of that. Second, we want to close the loop between on-site decisions and the approval they require from office-based staff. Formerly, this required driving back to the office, holding a meeting, marking up documents, getting approvals, and then driving back to the client and/or the site. With the conferencing system, those decisions, mark-ups, and approvals can all be made in real-time, with the client present. We can transfer files, print in the field, and have everybody sign off on a decision as it’s made. The conferencing features of this room save hours and days. It simplifies logistics.”

The Symetrix SymNet Radius AEC includes eight AEC (acoustic echo cancellation) inputs, four auxiliary inputs, eight outputs, and an expansion slot for any SymNet I/O card. Critically, it includes sophisticated AEC and related processing algorithms that deliver crystal clear audio to both sides of a remote conversation. The SymNet Radius AEC is easily expandable and networkable using the Dante Network protocol over Ethernet. An AMX DVX system controls all of the conferencing room’s functionality, including calls, video, audio, and lighting. Two Teamboard 90-inch interactive whiteboard also serve as projection screens for Panasonic short-throw projectors. Video is handled by a LifeSize ICON system using its UVC platform. The conference table includes pop-up boxes for connectivity and a collection of Shure boundary microphones for clear capture of discussions in the room. ElectroVoice Evid in-ceiling speakers provide output.
