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