ITSL Group were requested to provide Ricoh UK with a state of the art showroom facility in their Canary Wharf offices. The showroom is required to be a multi use space, displaying the company product range, meeting space for Ricoh staff & dealer network and to be used as a conference area. Each of the products needs to be demonstrated via a pod located in the main area, the sales person is required to connect to the copier with the interface displayed on a large format screen. The meeting rooms and boardroom required all the usual refinements, high quality displays, touch panel control and excellent audio reinforcement.
The successful design proposal provided by ITSL Group enabled the showroom users to select a copier from a Crestron touch panel and through multiple switchers enable the video and take partial KVM signal to control the copier during a demonstration. The conference area was serviced by three large format plasma displays with local video and audio inputs also controlled by a Crestron touch panel allowing either local video or any on the copiers onsite to be displayed and controlled. In the meeting rooms ITSL Group provided a simple interface for the rooms services via wireless Crestron touch panels, using these touch panels the user could control all aspects of the room as well as any of the machines connected to the showroom AV network.
