Conference Room AV Upgrades for AAMI
The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) was in need of a major overhaul of its conferencing facilities in Arlington, VA, including state-of-the art upgrades to its conference rooms with significant aesthetic enhancements. NCC’s Audiovisual and Technology Solutions (AVTS) team was up to the task of performing these upgrades.
As part of the renovation, AAMI required an upgrade to its AV systems to improve the performance, functionality, and aesthetics for local meetings, presentations and audio teleconferences. The original microphone system utilized a wired approach to link the multiple microphone base stations together, resulting in a space that appeared untidy and unprofessional. We replaced the old system with a new wireless discussion system which simplified communication and enabled the “chairman” to have full control of microphone usage within the room.
Our AVTS associates installed a telephone hybrid to connect AAMI’s VoiP phone system, with an input from the wireless discussion system mics, along with integrated speakers for use during audio conferences; this resulted in a significant audio upgrade from the original basic speakerphone system during AAMI’s conference calls.
Furthermore, NCC worked with AAMI to integrate a new fully-recessed screen mounted inside the ceiling for a cleaner appearance than the previous setup. NCC utilized AAMI’s existing projector, relocating it to properly fill the screen, and replacing the mount for a better appearance in the room. Additionally, we installed two new sleek 46” LED panels displays, mounted from the ceiling of the large conference room. These panel displays will mirror the content on the main projection screen for enhanced visibility of content for all participants in the room.
AAMI, founded in 1967, is a vast community of nearly 7,000 healthcare technology professionals who come together to carry out AAMI’s critical mission of “supporting the healthcare community in the development, management, and use of safe and effective medical technology.”
Upon completion of these wide-ranging upgrades, NCC has provided AAMI with a beautiful new conference room which is fully functional to enable a higher level of communication and collaboration within the space, and from the organization’s headquarters throughout the world via teleconferencing.
NCC is honored to support associations like AAMI in delivering a GOOD future for its members, volunteers, and staff as we we make communication and collaboration happen.
