Europe - With more than 50 destinations across Europe, Event Hospitality Management Holding currently operates more than 80 business and conferencing hotels in Germany, Italy and The Netherlands under its Event Hotels brand.
The group’s corporate management regularly liaises with the directors of each hotel, with the focal point of these important meetings being the large conference room at the corporate headquarters situated in Cologne on the banks of the River Rhine.
In February 2019, work finished on an ambitious installation which featured Shure’s Microflex Complete Wireless Solution, complemented by an IntelliMix P300 Conferencing DSP Processor. The system was planned and installed by systems integrator Tascan.
Due to the conference room being an oblong shape, the previously installed conferencing system was unable to guarantee speech intelligibility during large meetings, affecting participants both in the conference room and at external locations, which led to a negative impact on internal and external collaboration and wider teamwork contribution.
Having opted to comprehensively modernise its on-site media technology, the company also decided to bring the audio system up to date with a new, state-of-the-art solution.
Given the challenging room shape and dimensions, Cologne-based integrator Tascan needed a flexible conferencing system that was also user friendly and simple to operate.
Tascan Systems installed a total of 16 MXCW640 Wireless Conference Units in the room, each fitted with an MXC420DF/C condenser gooseneck microphone catering for up to 32 meeting participants. Using an MXCWAPT Access Point, the wireless signals are routed to an IntelliMix P300 DSP processor via Dante before being provided to the video and audio conference.
A 4.3” colour touchscreen situated in the rooms displays the speaker order and can also be used for voting.
“The flexibility of the automatic frequency management, paired with the excellent audio quality, was the clinching argument for us to select the Shure Microflex Complete Wireless System,” explained Abdelaziz El Jaouhari, projects & sales manager at Tascan Systems.
