RagingWire’s West coast data center in Sacramento, California called “The RockSM” is the largest data center in the state of Califor- nia and needed a NOC AV solution that matched the high-tech at- mosphere of their datacenter. IES designed a video wall solution to allow them to monitor their day-to-day operations while matching form and function of the room. This showpiece NOC integrates with a boardroom that allows clients to view the room through a border- ing window that provides physical separation from the high-tech space.
Using a custom programmed Crestron 10” touch panel, sales per- sonnel can route any NOC video source to the boardroom’s 90” LCD display. Other system features include VoIP conference dialing, wireless video collaboration, internet audio streaming, voice lift us- ing wireless microphones, and control of customer’s nLight lighting system. Blue LED strips were added behind the video wall to create depth of field, reduce eye fatigue and add that extra wow factor.
Equipment used in this solution includes a 2×8 Planar Clarity Matrix video wall system with off-board electronics, Crestron Digital Media switching distribution system, Biamp TesiraForte VoIP conferencing, and Clockaudio through-table boundary layer microphones featuring HJA Hushbutton LED rings for mute status and touch control.
