- Audio visual connection points in each meeting space
- Wireless wall docked AMX iPad controllers in every meeting space

- Full and comprehensive training on all aspects of the installation during commissioning and testing
Reception Video Wall
The reception area consists of a video wall in a 2×2 configuration utilising NEC 55″ ultra narrow bezel LCD monitors for a stunning visual experience. A ceiling speaker system delivers high performance audio without being visually obtrusive. A wall docked wireless iPad controller provides control of the video wall. The primary purpose of the video wall is digital signage which is used for displaying advertisements and information along with the ability to view Foxtel and free to air television networks.
Two state-of-the-art boardrooms provide the necessary collaboration and presentation facilities necessary for Tourism Australia to perform a host of various meetings both internally and with external parties via dedicated room video conferencing facilities. The larger boardroom consists of a high end Sharp 80″ interactive whiteboard LCD installed onto a custom metal work frame designed by EO Design engineers to meet the demanding mounting location of this large display.
There are a number of new display screens installed to complement the existing screens, one of which is a massive 103 inch Panasonic Plasma, located in the foyer. This screen display’s both Digital Signage and high definition television signals.
A Polycom video conferencing system delivers the necessary technologies required for an end to end video conferencing solution.
Retractable table microphones provide audio pick up for video conferencing calls whilst fitting in with the architectural design of the boardroom.
A JBL/BSS digital audio system allows for a seamless audio experience with Acoustic Echo Cancellation processing which prevents echo during video conferencing calls. Ceiling speakers deliver high performance sound.
A BSS audio Blu-link audio input device mounted underneath the boardroom table allows for all table microphones to be connected and cabled back to the central equipment rack using only a single CAT-5 data cable.
An infrared hearing aid system provides hearing assistance for the hearing impaired.
An AMX control system featuring a wireless wall mounted iPad controller provides complete control of the Boardroom audio visual system, with the ability to make and receive video conferencing calls entirely through the touch panel.
Table connection points facilitate connection of VGA and HDMI source devices such as laptops for either presentation or VC content. Along with the ability to playback Bluray and DVD discs through a Bluray Player.
