A new fitout in the UK, Coca-Cola Enterprises was an interesting project utilising a large number of rollout areas, from multiple single screen presentation spaces and boardroom, through a gym, restaurant multi-screen space, training facility and ‘Agora’ breakout facility, to a triple fully divisible auditorium multi-function space. The boardroom at CCE contained a large AMX DGX matrix alongside custom ‘look at me’ functionality on the boardroom table. A full Cisco telepresence system added to the feature-packed facility.
The multi-function space consisted of a triple-divisible system driven by AMX alongside a Purelink matrix switcher. This space can be divided into any combination.
An interesting factor in this project was that every space except two utilised iOS devices, via the TPControl app, for AV control. The rollout and layout has been expanded to several European locations.
GUI branding guidelines were stringent and many iterations of the user GUI interface were worked through until the final solution was reached. GUI design, for example, drilled down to such detail as the exact shape of furniture in a given room, in order for users to pinpoint where exactly they needed to plug their devices in. This presented an interesting code challenge in getting a given system to realise the environment it was housed in and redraw it’s GUI accordingly.
Finally, this space uses the powerful AMX RMS Enterprise asset management and room booking system (interfaced with an existing Outlook/Exchange based system) to allow for room signage showing room status and future bookings, alongside pre-meeting presets.
The Coca Cola Enterprises project for the integrator won the “Corporate Facility” award in the 2014 Inavate Awards hosted at ISE in Amsterdam.
The project has additionally been featured in a case-study by the integrator – available here.
