Digital Conference System for British Medical Association
PEL Services designed, supplied and installed advanced digital conference systems for the British Medical Association (BMA) at its London, Edinburgh, Belfast and London premises, skillfully upgrading and integrating with the organisation’s existing audio visual teleconferencing equipment.
Bosch DCN Discussion System installed at Edinburgh Debating Chamber
The first major BMA project for PEL was at its Scotland’s premises in Edinburgh. The Debating Chamber there is now home to a new state-of- the-art Bosch DCN Discussion System, which can readily accommodate the 72 delegate room capacity.
Seamless integration with existing Audio Visual Teleconferencing System
One of the key factors in the success of this project was PEL’s ability to seamlessly integrate the Bosch DCN Discussion System with the BMA’s existing audio visual teleconferencing equipment, despite incompatible software. PEL engineers expertly reprogrammed key systems, including a Crestron control system and RADVision teleconferencing system, enabling the BMA to utilise these as well as other older kit cost effectively, whilst benefitting from the latest conference system technology.
More than just an audio conferencing system, the DCN is an HD multimedia solution enabling the current speaker to be automatically shown on the four 50” flat panel screens and the HD projector via HD cameras, all of which have been supplied and installed by PEL. Delegate discussion panels have been fully recessed into the desks by PEL and feature bespoke stainless steel plates for a flush, sleek design. In addition, PEL has installed the DCN system with voting functionality, featuring simple to use software operated on a standard PC.
The BMA now benefits from sophisticated conference facilities for its internal events and is able to hire-out these facilities to generate revenue.
Fast Installation within 2 Weeks
The project was undertaken swiftly by PEL Services, who worked intensively to remove the redundant equipment then install and integrate the new system in just two weeks.
PEL Services’ professional performance at Edinburgh has been recognised by the BMA with further contracts awarded to the company, including a similar project for its Belfast premises and substantial upgrades in London.
