HARMAN Announces Strategic Alliance with Zoom, Debuts Side-By-Side Zoom Room and Meeting Space Control

ISE 2019 (Stand #1-F10) – Today, HARMAN Professional Solutions announced an exciting new alliance and product offering with Zoom Video Communications, Inc., that transforms standard meeting spaces into powerful collaboration centers. Available immediately, two new solutions integrate the AMX Acendo Core Collaboration System and the Zoom Meetings service as well as AMX Modero G5 Control Panels and the Zoom Rooms Controller app to give users the freedom to make meetings more productive, efficient, and impactful.

AMX Modero G5 Control Panels also immediately support the cloud-based, Zoom Rooms controller application to expand Modero G5-controlled standard rooms into complete, fully ready-to-collaborate, meeting spaces. The AMX and Zoom collaboration is the first of its kind to offer users the ability to simultaneously and seamlessly run the Zoom Rooms app alongside touch-based room control applications and other onscreen functions such as powering on/off lights and displays, opening and closing shades, and controlling the environment.

“We are thrilled to be working with the Zoom team on this project,” said Brian Divine, HARMAN Professional Solutions, Senior VP, Product and Customer Solutions. “They’ve really done their homework to better understand the needs of their customers and the meeting space market. We were taken by their commitment to improve the experience and believe that Acendo Core and Modero G5 align perfectly with Zoom Meetings and Zoom Rooms. This partnership has real potential to move the needle in effective collaboration.”

“Working together offers AMX and Zoom users an array of collaboration and environmental room control opportunities, not previously possible,” said Chris DeNovellis, Partnerships Development Manager, Hardware for Zoom. “Empowering users to build more effective and efficient meeting spaces is a vision we both share, and we look forward to developing additional innovations together.”

The University of Southern Queensland Creates a Unified AV Experience to lead the way in Collaborative Learning Spaces with HARMAN Professional Solutions

Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt deployed an AMX SVSI network media solution to deliver seamless streaming across multiple campuses

QUEENSLAND, AustraliaPro AV Solutions Queensland and avt installed AMX SVSI Networked Media Solution at The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) to create flexible teaching spaces leveraging the University’s standard network infrastructure.

With campuses in Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich, USQ offers courses in law, health, engineering, business, education, arts and the sciences. USQ recently deployed a series of POD-based learning and teaching techniques to facilitate interconnectivity both within and between campuses. USQ turned Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt to design an affordable and easy-to-use AV solution. Pro AV Solutions Queensland suggested the AMX SVSI networked media solution, capable of delivering high-definition audio and video with minimal latency across a variety of end-points on multiple campuses.

"We realized that we couldn’t approach this project with a traditional AV technology platform due to the scope of the network,” said Marc Braganza, Sales & Business Development Manager, Pro AV Solutions Queensland. “USQ wanted to bring content closer to students across three campuses. We needed a unique solution that could distribute massive amounts of audio and video over several devices using standard network cabling and IP technology. We chose the AMX SVSI networked media solution because of its flexible, affordable, and it distributes content over the entire network without instantaneously.”

The AMX SVSI network media solution enables USQ to create a complete digital media distribution solution. Students and staff can quickly connect from desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, and use the flexible user interface to control any linked devices.

"USQ is paving the way for the future of AV in the education sector,” said Dr Andrew Maxwell, Senior Lecturer, The University of Southern Queensland. “Our students love that they can send video feeds from anywhere they need to, which has allowed them to collaborate and work more effectively.”

"We are privileged to be associated with the prestigious University of Southern Queensland,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “It was a challenging project, and we're glad to have provided technology solutions to help make an impact on the students across campuses. We would like to thank ProAV Solutions Queensland and avt for providing a robust AV solution that enhances student and teacher interactions in unimaginable ways."

Durham University Elevates Learning Environments with HARMAN Professional Solutions

Visavvi deploys an advanced HARMAN AV over IP solution to allow students to connect, share and learn using cutting-edge technology

DURHAM, United KingdomVisavvi, part of the Saville Group recently deployed a complete HARMAN Professional Solutions AV over IP solution at Durham University.

One of the most historic and prestigious universities in the world, Durham University offers research-led education delivered by world-leading experts in outstanding study facilities. Durham University aims to deliver a challenging and transformative education experience that leverages the latest digital technologies. 

Recently, Durham decided to update the AV solution installed in their Calman Learning Centre facility on the Mountjoy campus to a state-of-the-art AV over IP solution that would allow lectures and events to be streamed in real-time across the entire building. In order to achieve these goals, the university hired Visavvi to integrate an AMX by HARMAN SVSI networked media solution, which enables to university to flawlessly stream high definition interactive audio and video throughout the facility. With the SVSI system, live lectures and presentations can be shared with AV systems in any room—allowing up to 1,100 students and faculty to view the same presentation simultaneously.

“The AMX SVSI system has drastically improved the day to day operations of the technical team,” said Chris Pearson, AV Team Lead, Durham University. "In a building such as the Calman Learning Centre, which hosts large scale teaching and high profile events and with a small AV team supporting teaching spaces across the university, it is vital that we install systems that are flexible and highly reliable—the AMX SVSI system has exceeded our expectations in meeting these requirements.”

The Calman Learning Centre houses the largest teaching spaces on the university campus, comprising three dedicated lecture theatres and two large teaching rooms on the top floor. Each theatre is outfitted with state-of-the-art display, control and collaboration technology, including AMX Enova DGX 1600 digital media switcher systems. The DGX system uses DXLink technology to send the highest quality digital audio and video to receivers via existing CAT cabling.

Each theatre is also equipped with JBL line array speaker systems, which are powered by Crown amps to deliver perfectly-aligned sound distribution. Intuitive AMX touch panels offer control of the room systems with custom-programmed user interfaces, allowing students and faculty to quickly and easily control media. The two smaller classrooms on the top floor are equipped with AMX SVSI transmission systems, allowing the same switching, control, audio and video conferencing technology as the lecture theatres.

“Months of planning and technical work went into this project,” said Crispin Bloomfield, Director of IT Operations, Durham University. “Visavvi worked with us to overcome some infrastructure challenges that required clever solutions, plus they faced a very tight window to turn this flagship teaching building around. The project was flawlessly executed, on time and on budget.”

Bank of Thailand Future-Proofs New Learning Center with HARMAN Professional Solutions AV Systems

Mahajak Development deploys JBL Professional, Crown, Soundcraft, BSS, AMX and Martin solutions for interactive installations at Bank of Thailand’s Learning Center

BANGKOK, Thailand—Mahajak Development Co. recently deployed an end-to-end HARMAN Professional Solutions AV system at Bank of Thailand’s Learning Center library and museum.

Bank of Thailand is the central financial body overseeing all monetary policy in Thailand. Across the road from its Bangkhunprom Palace headquarters, the Bank recently established a Learning Center complex in its former mint facility. The five-story building contains the Prince Vivadhanajaya Library, dedicated presentation rooms and research areas, a banquet hall and the Bank of Thailand Museum, which offers guided tours and interactive exhibits about the history of Thai currency. The Learning Center required a flexible, integrated audiovisual solution that could be expanded and reconfigured as needed. To meet these goals, Bank of Thailand hired Mahajak Development to design a complete HARMAN Professional AV solution consisting of JBL loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, Soundcraft mixers, BSS signal processors, AMX control systems and Martin lighting fixtures.

“The idea was to create an interactive environment in the Learning Center using high-tech scalable solutions to ensure our future needs are met as the Center grows and changes,” said the spokesperson for Bank of Thailand. “The interactive exhibitions required clear speech reproduction, eye-catching visuals and advanced control systems to run it all seamlessly. HARMAN’s best-in-class audio systems, video switchers and interfaces helped us create an inspiring, collaborative experience at the Learning Center.”

For large events in the banquet hall and library, JBL VT4888 and AC599 loudspeakers with SRX812P and ASB7128 subwoofers project powerful, high fidelity sound. In the library’s presentation rooms, JBL AC195 full-range speakers and Control 16C/T ceiling units provide even coverage for mid-size audiences. The museum’s smaller exhibits utilize JBL LSR305 studio monitors and E55BT wireless headphones for private listening and audio assistance. Control 28-1 loudspeakers and SB-150 wireless subwoofers provide wide coverage for background music in the entrance hall. The system is powered by Crown I-Tech HD and DCi Series amplifiers. Soundcraft Si Impact digital mixers allow staff to easily make adjustments. Audio is routed through a network of BSS BLU-100 signal processors with flexible digital architecture that can be reconfigured as needed.

To enable seamless AV control, Mahajak outfitted the facility with a network of integrated AMX systems. DVX-2250HD presentation switchers and DGX digital media switchers form the core of the system, connected by DX-TX-DWP transmitters and DX-RX receivers. MSD-701 touch panels and the TPControl iPad app provide staff, presenters and guests with tactile interfaces for controlling various interactive features. Martin MAC Aura and Quantum Profile fixtures create an immersive lighting experience in the banquet hall and museum exhibits.

“A distinct venue like the Bank of Thailand Learning Center requires a world-class audio-visual system that provides end-to-end capabilities,” said Pongsakorn Kanchanachayphoom, Project Director at Mahajak Development. “HARMAN's diverse portfolio of products gave us the ability to build reliable, robust and future-proof AV systems for the venue. There were two overhead projectors installed to ensure complete real-time redundancy. During installation, we made adjustments to ensure the speakers were fitted at the right angles to deliver optimum audio experience.”

“Creating an interactive learning space for Bank of Thailand has been a unique, exciting challenge for HARMAN,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM of HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. "The project required a sophisticated AV system that would deliver rich sound and stunning visuals for an immersive interactive experience. Leveraging our global experience with projects like this and Mahajak Development’s deep knowledge and capabilities, we were able to seamlessly execute the project.”
