Game-chang­ing Tech­nolo­gies for Vi­sion­ary Busi­nesses

PCQuest - - MOBILITY -

When em­ploy­ees of Deloitte Am­s­ter­dam re­port for work at The Edge, the of­fice app will re­view their sched­ules for the day and au­to­mat­i­cally as­sign them a desk or even a quiet room where they can con­cen­trate. Once in the of­fice, they can ad­just the tem­per­a­ture and light­ing via the app, which also re­mem­bers their cof­fee pref­er­ences. This is just one ex­am­ple of what con­nected Pro­fes­sional Au­dioVisual and In­te­grated Ex­pe­ri­ence tech­nolo­gies can achieve. Read on and dis­cover how In­foComm In­dia ex­hibitors Cre­stron and Busi­ness Oc­tane have helped their clients to heighten pro­duc­tiv­ity with their in­no­va­tions.

In­te­grated Tech­nol­ogy Spurs Col­lab­o­ra­tion in the Work­place

Founded in 1974, Petro­liam Na­sion­alBer­had, or PETRONAS, is a Malaysian oil and gas multi­na­tional com­pany that op­er­ates in over 50 coun­tries. A pro­po­nent of in­no­va­tion and strate­gic re­search and de­vel­op­ment, the com­pany re­quires a tech­nol­ogy in­fra­struc­ture that can fa­cil­i­tate smooth com­mu­ni­ca­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion. As such, it launched the PETRONAS Dig­i­tal Col­lab­o­ra­tion Cen­tre, a 22,000-square-foot vi­su­al­iza­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion fa­cil­ity. At the cen­ter, mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary tech­ni­cal teams can come to­gether and dis­cuss com­plex chal­lenges and make real-time de­ci­sions for the com­pany’s Ex­plo­ration and Pro­duc­tion op­er­a­tions. In the early days of op­er­a­tion, how­ever, the cen­ter faced nu­mer­ous issues: • Re­cur­ring in­ter­face issues dur­ing high fa­cil­ity us­age, which led to fre­quent sys­tem restarts • The down­time meant that meet­ings could not take place as sched­uled or spon­ta­neously

So­lu­tion

To im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and re­li­a­bil­ity of the cen­ter’s sys­tem, Cre­stron was brought in to de­ploy its suite of in­tel­li­gent so­lu­tions, which in­te­grated multiple op­er­a­tional func­tions under a sin­gle pro­ces­sor, and also in­tro­duced ex­ten­ders and scalers into the IT in­fra­struc­ture. Cre­stron was an ideal provider as the com­pany al­ready had prior ex­pe­ri­ence with its CP2E, a com­pact Eth­er­net con­trol sys­tem and Cre­stron Fu­sion, a mon­i­tor­ing and sched­ul­ing soft­ware.

The CP2E was up­graded to the CP3, a com­pact 3-Se­ries con­trol pro­ces­sor that al­lows the team to man­age and in­te­grate in­di­vid­ual tech­nolo­gies for an eas­ier, greener ex­pe­ri­ence. PETRONAS’s ex­ist­ing dis­play ma­trix was switched to the Cre­stron Dig­i­talMe­dia, re­spon­si­ble for man­ag­ing and dis­tribut­ing dig­i­tal AV and con­trol sig­nals. Smaller rooms were pow­ered by Cre­stron Dig­i­talMe­dia Pre­sen­ta­tion Sys­tems to make smooth au­to­ma­tion and ma­trix switch­ing a re­al­ity.

Re­sults

Thanks to the en­hanced in­fra­struc­ture, the fa­cil­ity has seen a huge de­crease in down­time. The ben­e­fits of the re­vamp in­clude: • Room uti­liza­tion rate now av­er­ages 95% • A more re­li­able and easy-to-use in­ter­face to au­to­mate AV, light­ing, video con­fer­enc­ing and me­chan­i­cal lifter for electric pri­vacy glass • Op­er­a­tions for the en­tire cen­ter are man­aged by a lean team
