Upgrading Collaboration Infrastructure for
Real-Time Review

CHALLENGE

Our client – a leading financial institution in India — has its headquarters in Mumbai and key offices located across the country. Their business spans the financial ecosystem in the country through a wide range of financial services and products. Actis was asked to help upgrade their collaboration infrastructure to allow for real-time review of financial information and to allow teams to meet, videoconference and share information more smoothly. Given the time-sensitive nature of global financial markets, high-reliability was also important to the management.

The upgraded meeting spaces that have been created are spread across 7 floors of the corporate headquarters.

Solution

Our client in this instance is a leading financial institution in India. Their business spans the financial ecosystem in the country through a wide range of financial services and products. Team Actis worked meticulously to implement the client’s requirement of upgrading the meeting and collaboration facilities at the organisation’s headquarters in Mumbai. Team Actis delivered a robust infrastructure combined with the latest technologies to make meetings more effective and efficient for this leading financial institution in India. These include implementing COVID-19 safe large divisible boardroom, the MD’s boardroom and four additional boardrooms. These are spread across the seven floors and provide an enhanced video conferencing experience. It begins with the two large adjoining 20-seat Boardrooms that have been equipped with individual 108” LED video wall displays and secondary 49” LED displays for better viewing clarity and increased in all lighting environments. Also available is the dual microphone for video and non-video meetings. Also, ceiling microphones are used for video calls and combined with a Dante AV bridge to eliminate echoes. A dual-camera VC system with speaker tracking has been implemented. Traditional mics are embedded in the table in front of each participant to capture audio.

High-performance collaboration tools are made available to teams for better productivity across multiple workflows. The infrastructure also features large-screen displays, document cameras, VC systems, a program audio system, wireless presentation, Networked AV, AV control, lighting control and room scheduling. A dedicated 108” video wall display features in the MD’s boardroom, while the other rooms feature 85” flat screens. Plans are in the pipeline to engage Actis to design similar solutions for their offices in Delhi, Chennai, Kolkata and other cities in India.

THE FINAL IMPRESSION

For organisations in the financial space, collaboration is key to success in an extremely dynamic marketplace and to ensure that a wide variety of stakeholders (customers, partners, analysts and media) have confidence in them.

The new AV infrastructure built by Actis provides them with a great deal of flexibility in how and where they can share content – both inside the collaboration spaces and across distinct collaboration spaces also. A number of AV and other technologies have been tightly integrated to ensure a high level of seamlessness and security. The organisation is now able to provide wide access to state-of-the-art collaboration tools across its headquarters, and is in the process of adding more at its offices in other cities.
