Populous is a leading Architecture and Interior Design firm on a global stage specialising in stadiums and world arenas. They engaged Videopro to deliver their new 800sqm Asia Pacific headquarters in Brisbane’s CBD. Populous was expanding, and as a result, relocated to larger premises. The project included; six meeting rooms, a boardroom, a grandstand/town hall space, a large 5m x 2.5m reception LED wall, and a kitchen/breakout space.
This was a complex project that was made simple. The technology not only had to be functional and easy to operate, but a high attention to detail was important from an interior design perspective to integrate into the building’s aesthetics. The design process was close to one year in the making with many revisions made along the way in order to get the balance correct between form and function.
The newly implemented Crestron Flex Teams UC is an agnostic system working seamlessly with other platforms such as Zoom and Webex. The Crestron Flex provides a simplistic one button action to join meetings in the rooms.
The custom reception LED digital signage wall measuring 5.0m x 2.5m, greets clients at the entrance, which provides magnificent video content and reinforced audio through the two concealed speakers in the bulkhead.
A grandstand videowall provides an impressive ultra-narrow bezel 3x3 presenting space incorporating Teams VC and Barco ClickShare for townhall style meetings and presentations. Line array speakers flank the columns and project the voice lift from the microphones.
It was a pleasure to partner with a company that was passionate about achieving an aesthetically pleasing, functional audio-visual solution, and the result speaks for itself.
