UK - International law firm Dentons has upgraded audio-video systems at its One Fleet Place, London, offices as part of an initiative to streamline the efficiency of its global communications. Supplied and installed by the Torpedo Factory Group, the new integrated sound and vision systems have been welcomed by colleagues, who have commented on the improved quality as well as increased productivity.
With more than 185 offices in 75 countries around the world employing in excess of 10,000 lawyers, effective global communication is a critical component of Dentons’ day to day activities, relied upon to conduct board meetings, face-to-face meetings with colleagues, and stream video conferences and large scale presentations from any part of the world.
TFG’s proven track record of successful previous Dentons projects in Edinburgh, Milton Keynes and Dublin, led TFG technical director Jason Brameld to design an integrated system of audio, video, telecoms and control components unified through robust network architecture and accessed via a simple user-friendly touch-screen interface.
“The installation phase of the new audio-video system was flawless,” commented Dentons’ audio-visual technician Nathan Dickenson. “TFG gave us detailed cable plans in advance, we flooded the floor with CAT6 and then they came in and installed the hardware and connected everything up over a two week period without interruption to our day-today business.
"The support from the TG team has been fantastic. We're very happy with their work, and they stayed on site right up until the end to ensure a smooth handover."
The three main meeting rooms at One Fleet Place can either be combined into one space for presentations, or separated with partitions for use by smaller groups – and the audio-visual functionality is automatically switched to accommodate the change of purpose.
“With staff working in the building at extended hours – meeting with colleagues and clients on the other side of the world in different time zones – simplicity of operation and reliability were key factors in our design,” explained TFG’s technical director Jason Brameld. “So our goal was to provide seamless integration and ease of use without the need for technical supervision. Additionally the system is flexible and easily expandable to accommodate new requirements and subsequent changes over time.
“Everyone who uses the meeting rooms has commented on how noticeable the improvements to picture and sound quality have been since we upgraded the AV systems; it’s really made our clients’ communications much more productive,” he said.
“The support from the TFG team has been fantastic,” concluded Dickenson. “We’re very happy with their work, and they stayed on site right up until the end to make sure that everything was working as expected. It could not have gone more smoothly.”
