Case Study: Zurich Insurance Group

Zurich Insurance Group’s new North America headquarters in Schaumburg, Ill., is intended to be a place where people want to work. AVI-SPL’s role in fulfilling that vision was to implement solutions that would give employees the collaborative technology that help them work — and work together — effectively. That would include meeting spaces equipped for video conferencing, audio conferencing, and presentations. It would also mean technicians and engineers applying their design and programming skills to deliver Zurich’s must-haves:

  • Technology that is simple, reliable, and intuitive
  • A consistent experience from room to room
  • Meetings that start on time

In the following link, hear from Zurich’s leaders about working with AVI-SPL and how we helped realize their vision using solutions from technology partners like Polycom, Crestron, Haivision, Shure, NEC, and Da-Lite.

UCSF simulation roomThe University of California, San Francisco’s Teaching and Learning Center is 22,000 square feet of communications technology, designed to train healthcare students in the use of telemedicine tools that provide specialty care for those in underserved areas of San Francisco.

It also includes media capture, providing live monitoring and review capabilities for students and teachers. For each of the TLC’s two trauma rooms, AVI-SPL installed four Sony PTZ cameras. Another 36 Sony BRCZ PTZ cameras are integrated in 12 mock examination rooms.
