ASCOT Partners, located in North Melbourne, is a client-focused firm of accountants and financial advisors with a service aimed at solving problems, making the most of opportunities and turning advice into action.
ASCOT Partners recognised the need to adapt to the evolving landscape of hybrid work environments and sought to create a versatile video conferencing system that would seamlessly integrate with their existing office and boardroom setups. To achieve this objective, they enlisted the expertise of Vision One Technologies to implement cutting-edge technology solutions in line with the demands of modern-day hybrid workstyles.
ASCOT Partners’ aim was to maximise opportunities for effective communication and collaboration while addressing the challenges posed by remote and in-person interactions. The key challenges included:
- Outdated AV equipment in need of replacement.
- The need for intuitive, interactive displays for presentations and digital whiteboarding.
- Ensuring crystal clear audio and video quality during video conferencing.
- Streamlined content sharing and collaboration features.
Interactive Flat Panel Displays
Vision One began by decommissioning the existing AV equipment, including projectors and whiteboards, and installed a ViewSonic IFP8652-1C 86” UHD Interactive Flat Panel Displays with myViewBoard in the boardroom. A 65″ version of the same display was installed in one of their offices. These interactive displays feature high-accuracy touchscreen functionality and intelligent palm recognition technology, providing an intuitive digital whiteboard experience for all users.
All-in-One Conference Camera
To enhance the conferencing experience, the ViewSonic VB-CAM-201 Tribe All-in-One Conference Camera was installed beneath the displays. This camera boasts 4K UHD resolution and a 121° super wide-angle lens, ensuring that all meeting participants are captured, regardless of seating arrangements. The camera’s voice tracking feature and 5x digital zoom guarantees that the speaker always remains in the frame.
In the boardroom, a VB-MIC-201 4K UHD Camera with Noise Cancellation was installed to further improve audio quality during video conferences. This USB omni-directional microphone extends the pickup range up to 26 feet (8 meters) when connected to the VB-CAM-201 4K camera. This addition eliminates unintelligible audio and ensures crystal clear conversations.
Streamlined Content Sharing
Vision One Technologies introduced the VB-WPS-001 ViewBoard Cast Button to enhance content sharing capabilities. With a simple tap, users can elevate their meetings and presentations. The ViewBoard Cast Button eliminates complicated setups, time-consuming installations and unwanted clutter, allowing more time for creation, collaboration and connection.
The transformation of ASCOT Partners’ video conferencing capabilities reflects the importance of cutting-edge technology in supporting the evolution of hybrid collaboration. Vision One Technologies successfully addressed the client’s objectives and significantly enhanced the overall collaboration experience for their staff.
