Meeting room technology

Project Logo

One of the largest coating manufacturers in the world, Valspar, has selected AV project installers, Pioneer Group, to provide state of the art digital connectivity throughout a range of offices including its UK HQ in Winnersh, Wokingham.

The roll out which began in its new HQ building has huge colour features throughout reflecting the company’s ranges – featuring LCD displays, wireless presentation systems and audio systems – was part of a multi office refurbishment to better align with the company’s U.S aesthetic and newest technologies.

State-of-the-art Hitachi LCD Projectors were installed across the training rooms in the Winnersh HQ and Witney offices, attached with a 1.5m Peerless ceiling projector mount.  Samsung 55” Direct-Lit LED Displays for Business have been connected by Peerless flat panel ceiling mounts. ClickShare CS-100 wireless presentation systems from Barco are used throughout the meeting spaces and training area to make connecting to the displays simple and initiative. In addition HDMI face plates feature as backups for any unusual connectivity requirements.

Systems in meeting rooms across the Winnersh, Biggleswade, Abingdon and Witney offices, now allow staff to collaborate more effectively with colleagues overseas as well as with customers.   As per the client’s specifications, Pioneer also installed Coaxial Ceiling Speakers in the training rooms in Winnersh and Witney – delivering audio technology at its finest.

Project Manager, Mark Childerhouse explains:

“Valspar approached us with a brief to update their UK offices with state-of-the-art technologies so that there were consistencies across the company.  With a lot of U.S colleagues travelling to the UK and vice-versa, it was important for them to be in sync with what the other offered technology wise.  For example, Barco wireless presentation systems were already installed in their U.S offices, so it made sense for us to replicate this refit over here.  Video conferencing units were relocated from their old site and there is recording kit in the training room to record sessions.”
