Traditional spaces can be transformed into Multimedia Conference Rooms for meeting with people in the room, as well as remote attendees using VTC and Web Collaboration. We offer expert design services, construction, installation, and room automation, as well as follow-up technical support and routine maintenance.

Designing Conference Rooms for an Interactive World
Once upon a time, conference rooms were simply places large enough for the entire group to meet. The speaker stood at a podium and attendees strained to hear over the shuffling of paper handouts. But changes in technology have refined meetings, and conference rooms need to evolve also. Now you might need to:
  • Hold a group meeting even though people are stationed in three different buildings on two different campuses
  • Meet with a group in California, without buying plane tickets
The Room Design team can design, equip, and build a conference room that supports these or any other events your mission requires. While an initial investment is required, a modern conference room allows you to take full advantage of new technologies and ultimately saves your organization both time and money.


Customer Benefits

Never again walk into your conference room faced with the hassle of rerouting cables, the annoyance of remembering which buttons to press, or the frustration of finally finding the battery is dead. Instead, access the room functions with a touch panel specially designed to meet your requirements. Dim the room light, lower the screen, turn on the projector and microphone, and display a PowerPoint from your laptop, all by touching one button on a touch panel. We provide custom touch panel wiring and programming to simplify meetings, teleconferencing, video conferencing, and online discussions.
