In today’s fast-paced and high-priced business environment, sitting around the (same) conference table is virtually a thing of the past, as coast-to-coast (and continent-to-continent) videoconferences are increasingly becoming the way business deals get done.

But when those deals focus on intricate design elements and detailed architectural plans, only the best in state-of-the-art collaboration technology will do … or the deal may not get done. That’s why a prominent Manhattan real estate developer and property management company trusted their conference room technology to the Commercial Services professionals at Crescendo Designs.

Centered around an elegant 22-person conference table, the resulting system features the LifeSize® Room 220TM, the world’s most powerful HD video communications system.

“The LifeSize Room 220 provides the superior quality this client’s business demands, with full high-definition and the highest resolution on the market today,” explains Stephen Berry, senior design consultant. The LifeSize Room 220 comes standard with an embedded 8-way Continuous Presence multipoint bridge, showing four visible sites in a compact, sleek unit that’s less than half the size of comparable solutions.

“The LifeSize system is compact, flexible, and easy to use with computers, Blu-ray, cable, or iPad,” he notes.  “Anyone can plug in their computer or other personal device for on-screen display and control it via a simple remote.”

The room also features side-by-side 50-inch plasma displays of the video sources and cameras, which include a front room camera with 10X zoom and a WolfVision document camera that’s mounted on the ceiling, focusing the conference table below.

“The document camera displays a full-sized set of architectural plans and zooms in so all the people you’re video conferencing with can see the finest details,” Steve adds.
