Case Studies

IHB Systems prescribes Shure Microflex Wireless microphone network for Doctors of BC headquarters in Vancouver

The conferencing area at Doctors of BC headquarters in Vancouver is a very large room that can be split into three separate meeting rooms. Deploying microphones for the ever-changing room configurations was a daily challenge, often compromising sound quality during audio teleconferences. Doctors of BC engaged IHB Systems, a Vancouver area AV design/build specialist, to create an audio system to solve these issues.
