CIPFA turns to ITSL for consistent video conferencing and AV control solutions

CIPFA, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, is the professional body for people in public finance. Their 14,000 members work throughout the public services, in national audit agencies, in major accountancy firms, and in other bodies where public money needs to be effectively and efficiently managed. CIPFA was looking for an AV solution provider to deliver consistent and easy to operate video conferencing technology across 11 meeting rooms.


CIPFA has a number of meeting rooms in London, ranging in sizes from small spaces for 6-8 people to council chamber-type rooms for more than 50 people. Even though the rooms are different in size and purpose, CIPFA wanted to have consistent video conferencing equipment across all rooms as well as an integrated and simple way of controlling all audio visual aspects of the meeting rooms. There was a lot of old and legacy AV equipment that was difficult to use and hard to maintain. CIPFA wanted it replaced with simple-to-use, yet high-end alternatives.


ITSL was selected to deliver against these requirements for 11 meeting rooms in total. We installed a range of Samsung Commercial Displays across all spaces and varying models of Logitech Rally VC equipment, depending on the room size. AV control is done with SY Electronics equipment. For the two large meeting rooms (that can be connected into one huge room) we installed ceiling-mounted Shure microphones and QSC audio management equipment. Finally, we re-cabled every room to make them all tidy, safe and clean.

Project Benefits

Simplify and modernise is what CIPFA asked us to do and this is exactly what we delivered. They already had high quality AV control equipment in place but it was old and very difficult to manage for non-technical personnel. So, the first benefit of the new audio visual systems in all rooms is simplification and ease-of-use of the equipment. Even though the project was not small, ITSL delivered it within 10 days after all equipment was available to install.
