The client is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of construction machinery. Actis was engaged by them to create state-of-the-art video collaboration infrastructure at their factory.
The team wanted Actis to create a video collaboration infrastructure that worked flawlessly and incorporated technology which allows for great convenience and usability. Making sure that meeting participants are able to get connected in the minimum amount of time was important, as was incorporating sufficient connectivity for each and every participant. A key challenge in this project was the fact that the video collaboration rooms were located in the factory building, in many cases very close to the production floor itself. Tight timelines were another challenge for this project which had to be completed from start to finish in two months and the client, consultant, contractors and our project teams were spread across the country.
Team Actis worked closely with the client’s project consultants to implement the AV and Collaboration equipment integration in a total of over 30 collaboration rooms at their company site in India. Most of the rooms at the company office were VC rooms enabled with hardware-codec based VC systems for the internal teams, as well as for the senior management, including MD and VP.
Team Actis implemented integration solutions for the Executive Meeting Room, a large 64-seater virtual Training Room, 32-seater boardroom, 15-seater Training Rooms, an AV Conference Room, Interactive VC Room and other VC enabled Meeting Rooms.
With an all-digital signal management system, dual 55” Samsung displays, Cisco VC systems, Creston control system, room scheduling interfaces, wireless presentation systems, cable cubbies, and much more, Team Actis provided the client with tools to cater to their unique engineering and manufacturing applications.
The widespread availability of high-end video collaboration tools has considerably simplified interactions for the client organisation’s teams, especially providing a new way of connecting with their factory teams across the world..
Video collaboration has significantly changed how the teams work and its adoption has been wide spread. The natural and intuitive nature of video collaboration and inclusion of interactive tools has cut down travel and helped increase team productivity. Richer information exchange is possible with access to interactive tools that allow drawing, annotation and also sharing of detailed engineering drawings. Most importantly the benefits of this video collaboration infrastructure are creating impact at several key stages of the team workflows including design, engineering, manufacturing and in customer interactions.
