Lyons is an architectural and urban design practice based in Melbourne, Australia. The firm designs projects which are responsive to and expressive of a contemporary experience of local and global culture – a world of ideas, new media, technologies and rapidly changing urbanism. Lyons work is committed to and interested in the history and culture of ideas and how ideas can be used to create meaningful contemporary architecture.
Having recently completed works at the Lyons-owned and operated Lyon Housemuseum earlier in 2019, Vision One collaborated once again with the creative minds at Lyons – this time, to deliver new technology upgrades for their studio refurbishment in Melbourne’s CBD.
Beginning with both the Conference Room and Boardroom (AV clones of one another), we installed 2x large-format LG 86″ UHD/4K Trident LED Display Panels, side-by-side on the front wall. Our input configurations were designed as follows:
Display Panel 1 = HDMI 1 (Fixed PC/VC), HDMI 2 (Local Wall Plate) & HDMI 3 (Kramer VIA GO Wireless Presentation Device)
Display Panel 2 = HDMI 1 (Extended/Duplicate Fixed PC), HDMI 2 (Local Wall Plate) & HDMI 3 (Kramer VIA GO Wireless Presentation Device)
Below the displays, an Audac IMEO1 Sound Bar with integrated Bluetooth was installed to facilitate VC and presentation audio playback. The IMEO1 Soundbar features a slim and elegant design and includes all required functions for expansion of any audio visual system with an impressive sound.
To the side of the displays and positioned strategically to focus and capture the boardroom table and its meeting attendees, a HuddleCam 10x Optical Zoom PTZ USB Camera was installed. Designed with a wide variety of conferencing setups in mind, the HuddleCamHD 10X-USB2 is ideal for small to medium sized conference rooms using a Mac or PC computer with web-based video conferencing/live streaming software, making this camera the perfect-choice for Lyons’ preferred Skype for Business video conferencing setup.
To power our VC solution, a Devio SCR-25 Conference Room Dock System was installed in a cupboard, using its genius in-built AEC technology to capture audio via 2x ceiling-hanging beam-tracking microphones. Intended for huddle rooms or small conference rooms, the SCR-25 uses Beamtracking™ microphones and professional grade DSP to optimize the audio quality, allowing far-end conference participants to experience the conversation naturally.
Two custom Vision One JED T460 Wall Controllers were installed to control each display panel, giving Lyons-employees total flexibility when it comes to selecting, changing and alternating inputs on each display.
In smaller spaces, we also installed a variety of combinations of 43″, 55″, 65″ and 86″ LG Display Panels, each with either BrightSign Media Players for digital signage or Kramer VIA GO Wireless Presentation devices for wireless presentation and streaming.
