Collaboration zones bring the world to London for a global law firm.
When you’re a global law firm with international clients, effective collaboration is a priority — relationships are critical in this sector. Face time is a must, but extensive travel is not. Eversheds Sutherland recognized the value of first-class meeting facilities when they decided to upgrade the auditorium and boardroom at their London headquarters. The firm wanted to create a flexible meeting space combining a large auditorium with a smaller breakout area. The audiovisual system had to be configured so that the two areas could be combined or used independently without affecting the meeting experience. Presenters must be seen and heard clearly regardless of the room configuration.
Eversheds also wanted the boardroom to become a more versatile, functional collaboration area. The long narrow shape of the room had a potential impact on viewing quality and audio clarity. The diverse nature of meetings meant audiovisual and control system had to accommodate multiple connectivity.
A state-of-the-art collaboration zone ensures clients, presenters and audience enjoy a unique first-class meeting experience.
The auditorium is now a vibrant meeting space with a videowall for the big picture and LCD screens to present detailed content. Audio has been optimized to ensure clarity throughout the area and sophisticated show control techniques ensure the meeting experience is consistent regardless of room configuration. The boardroom has the flexibility to accommodate formal presentations or ad-hoc meetings where participants can bring their own devices.
The solution has been designed for flexibility, quality and ease of use. Connectivity and show control have been kept as simple as possible so that presenters of all standards can start and run their meetings easily regardless of the equipment they use. Audio, lighting and presentation technologies have been optimized to ensure a high-quality meeting experience and support the collaboration that is so important to Eversheds’ success.
