NJ Sharing Network, is a non-profit, organ procurement organization responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue for New Jersey residents.
When New Jersey Sharing Network outgrew its corporate headquarters, they decided to build a new facility that features a boardroom, a multi-purpose room, meeting rooms and public spaces, all with modern communication technology that enables employees to work productively, individually and collaboratively. McCann Systems was contacted by the client’s representative, Walsh Company, to design and integrate the audiovisual components of the space. McCann Systems designed a robust audio visual system to meet the client’s needs, maintaining a simple and intuitive control system for non-technical users. Because the client had no dedicated audio visual staff to run the system, it was critical to have a design that would be user friendly.
The heart of the system is tucked away in the Data Closet, which houses all of the IT and AV racks. This equipment consists of Extron routers and image processors, VBrick IP streaming hardware and Crestron IP control systems, complete with Crestron RoomView scheduling.
McCann Systems provided the client with the capability of viewing media consisting of in-house productions, internet streams and typical broadcast feeds in the meeting rooms and public spaces. This was particularly challenging because we had to provide a way of getting all media outlets to all of the user workstations in the facility, without using third-party software.
To easily manage the available source feeds, McCann used a VBrick system for all of the video feeds and a Crestron RoomView scheduling system for the building-wide scheduling system.
