This was a new office project where a brand new AV system was required throughout the offices in the boardroom, presentation area, smaller meeting rooms, staff breakout areas etc. MVS were introduced to the project via the office fit out designer, and the project started off as a meeting about their existing system and how they currently use AV and how we could implement into the new, larger space.
The project was vast as the client occupied 5 floors of their Worship Street office space, minutes from Liverpool Street Station. The project had many facets with repetition of systems across the office space a common theme. The feel of the office is like that of a farm with potting sheds for meeting rooms.
The ‘Bleacher’ is the main presentation area for the company, containing professional audio and visual equipment to provide the audience with a high impact and engaging presentation. The idea of the bleacher presentation area is similar to that of an American style bleacher at a sports game; tiered seating watching the game, or in this case a presentation. MVS installed a WUXGA 6000 Lumens Optoma projector, mounted from the ceiling and projecting onto a 4m wide, tab-tensioned electric projector screen also suspended from the ceiling. The video distribution was supported via Atlona’s transmit and receive baluns. Wireless presentation is carried out by the Kramer VIA product throughout the office. The audio in the bleacher area is powered by the Yamaha MA series of amplifiers and the Yamaha MTX3 DSP; delivering excellent digital audio processing with the power and coverage required for an area of this size and shape. The system is controlled with simple SY Electronics Control equipment.
The boardroom consisted of a large 75” Samsung screen with a webcam and a Clearone conference phone for microphone pick up in both teleconference calls and for the videoconferencing, which is managed by a simple SKYPE set up but using professional AV equipment. Additional equipment in the room included ceiling speakers for audio reproduction, Kramer VIA for wireless presentations to the screen and SY control. A very simple yet effective Boardroom.
Audio in the reception/café areas is powered by Sonos.

The client was very innovative with their concepts and ideas; MVS were perfectly positioned to interpret the ideas and deliver a working solution. The office space and meeting spaces needed to be flexible and robust; everything was based on BYOD so the meeting spaces have wireless presentation systems, hard wired cables, video conferencing cameras, microphones and more. The large company presentation bleacher has advanced AV technologies to deliver perfect sound and vision to a large audience all controlled via a Crestron control solution.
The Hello Fresh project was finished on time and within budget in a 10 week build programme for their new offices.
