Audio Visual Solutions at NorthWestern Mutual locations
LightWerks had the privilege to partner with Northwestern Mutual once again to build out new offices with the latest AV technology. This time, the projects focused on their Irvine and Las Vegas locations. Meeting, collaboration and conferencing spaces were specified with state-of-the art systems, designed by LightWerks.
The lobby reception area displays Northwestern Mutual content and live television, supported by an Apple TV, an Intel NUC and a satellite/cable box. An HDMI over CAT transmitter resides in a discrete cabinet that facilitates a live TV feed. The video system includes two 65” displays, with quality audio through the display’s built-in speakers.
LightWerks recommended the state-of-the art Digital Media for the various meeting rooms. Ultra-high-definition and 4 x 1 HDMI auto switchers take advantage of the latest in AV routing and distribution technology, ensuring support for the latest generation of high-resolution computers and laptops. In-table furniture-mountable enclosures provide discrete access to HDMI, VGA/audio, and network cables for the laptops. Each enclosure includes two AC power outlets and two USB charging stations.
Large training lounges provide the means for full video conferencing and collaboration, which includes 85” displays, PTZ cameras, in ceiling and podium microphones, as well as ceiling speakers. Ease of use is the driving force behind Northwestern Mutual’s adoption of these AV systems. Touch panel capability offers an ideal user-interface for controlling the wide range of technology with the simplicity of on/off, volume, and source control. A touch panel mounted at the entrance of each meeting space provides scheduling details and meeting reservations.
Northwestern Mutual uses several of their private offices for business presentations. LightWerks installed Media Presentation HDMI wall plates in these offices for easy laptop connections. The presentation solution enables the laptop to share content wirelessly to the mounted 55” display.
LightWerks in-person training at both offices ensured that Northwestern Mutual professionals maximize the benefits of their significant technology investment. Chief Operating Officer, Chau Le expresses her gratitude, “Thank you for all your great AV/Media work in our offices. We now have awesome equipment in our offices in Irvine and Vegas!”
