Challenge

Provide high-quality speech capture of video conference participants in the conference hall and meeting rooms of the administrative building of AO Achimgaz.

 

Solution

The project for AO Achimgaz was implemented by the system integrator Open Vision LLC. Open Vision has been working in the IT services since 2009. The company's specialists have designed multimedia complexes and provided professional equipment for the premises of the new administrative building of AO Achimgaz in the city of Novy Urengoy.

 

The new building has several meeting rooms for video conferencing. The 120-seat conference room uses the Shure conference system as well as ULX-D Digital Wireless Systems used. The small meeting room is equipped with three MXA310 table microphone arrays that work in conjunction with the P300-IMX audio conferencing DSP. A large meeting room, which is actively used by the management of AO Achimgaz, is equipped with a Microflex® Complete Wireless Digital Conference System consisting of 16 MXCW640 wireless units, that provide all needed functions, like voting and identification via NFC.

 

Advantages

Shure solutions has not only ensured the high sound quality and operational reliability, as noted by the Customer at the stage of putting the systems into operation, but also has been successfully integrated into the room’s design, and the well-thought-out ergonomics of the devices made their use as simple and convenient as possible. The Microflex® Complete Wireless system solved the problem of transmitting the audio signal in the room without wires. The rechargeable batteries system with MXCWNCS network charging stations proved to be very convenient for charging and monitoring the battery status of conference units, allowing the system to be ready to work at any time.

“Shure microphone systems coped with their tasks perfectly, from the very first seconds of operation they proved to be high-class devices and provided a decent level of audio quality, which was especially important for the Customer, since video conferencing events are held at the highest level. I also note that it was easy to work with Shure equipment during the installation process, and a wide range of devices allowed us to cover all needs and solve potential problems at the stage of the project pre-sale, which is important for us, as a system integrator”- Alexey Kiryukhin, Pre-sale engineer, AV and Multimedia, Open Vision.
