Case Story: Demo Center for Pharmacy Benefit Company

The Catamaran pharmacy benefit company in Chicago recently branched out to a downtown building where it gives guests a firsthand experience of its offerings. The Catamaran case story at the AVI-SPL site includes a video in which our engineers and the project architects discuss the benefits of the video walls and interactive displays.

In this video, you’ll see the systems we integrated from manufacturers like Crestron (for AV control), Biamp (audio distribution), Christie (video walls), and NEC (video displays). Others, not mentioned in the video, but critical to giving the client what it wanted, include the LifeSize video conferencing that powers the Caméléon Telepresence system, and the endpoints in three conference rooms, and the Tannoy speakers that provide sound distribution in conference rooms and the lobby area.

Equipping the Hunt Library at N.C. State for Sound and Signal Distribution

North Carolina State Hunt LibraryFor the massive audio visual install at North Carolina State’s James B. Hunt Jr. Library, AVI-SPL installed solutions including video conferencing, interactive video walls, digital signage, kiosks, touch panels, cameras, projectors, video displays and advanced sound systems. To pull many of these components together, our engineers used Belden cables throughout the facility.

Tannoy speakers are also prevalent throughout the install. Our engineers went with Tannoy for multiple meeting rooms, and 32 pendant speakers for the Creative Studio. The pendant speaker solution was necessary because of the room’s open ceiling.
