5 Star Conferencing: EVENT Hotels Group Benefit From Shure Microflex® Complete Wireless™ Solution
With more than 50 destinations across Europe, Event Hospitality Management Holding GmbH & Co KG currently operates more than 80 business and conferencing hotels in Germany, Italy and The Netherlands under its 'EVENT Hotels' brand.
In order to ensure that its high standards are met across all its 3-, 4- and 5-star facilities, the group's corporate management regularly liaises with the directors of each hotel, with the focal point of these important meetings being the large conference room at the corporate headquarters situated in Cologne on the banks of the River Rhine.
Due to the room being an oblong shape, the previously installed conferencing system was unable to guarantee speech intelligibility during large meetings, affecting participants both in the conference room and at external locations, which led to a negative impact on internal and external collaboration and wider teamwork contribution.
Cologne-based integrator TASCAN deployed a flexible conferencing system that was also user friendly and simple to operate, that would improve not only speech intelligibility at the main conferencing venue, but also provide off-site meeting participants with high-quality audio streams.
Integration of Shure's Microflex® Complete Wireless Solution, including 16 MXCW640 Wireless Conference Units in the room, each fitted with an MXC420DF/C condenser gooseneck microphone catering for up to 32 meeting participants. Using an MXCWAPT Access Point, the wireless signals are routed to an IntelliMix® P300 Conferencing DSP Processor via Dante before being provided to the video and audio conference.
A system that provides significantly improved communication between participants within the conference room and elongated conference table.
"The flexibility of the automatic frequency management, paired with the excellent audio quality, was the clinching argument for us to select the Shure Microflex Complete Wireless System," explained Abdelaziz El Jaouhari, Projects & Sales Manager at TASCAN Systems.
"The management team at Event Holding was also impressed at the way the P300 DSP processor was integrated quickly and easily into the video conferencing system via Dante."
Jaouhari concluded: "The customer has reported back to us on the uniformly positive user experience with the Microflex Complete Wireless system."
