Nats gets ministers talking
OMAN: Nats Solutions has designed and installed a conferencing solution for the minister conference hall at the new HQ building of Oman’s Ministry of Education. The installed solution is built around equipment from Taiden and Crestron.
Nats became involved with the installation through its strategic partner,
Teejan, which was the furniture and fit-out contractor for the project. It was challenged to design a conference room where stakeholders at the Ministry of Education could meet and make decisions. More specifically, the Ministry required a high-quality audio system that could be controlled via a user-friendly touch panel.
To meet this challenge, the systems integrator opted to use Taiden’s HCS-4100 digital conference system for the project which was supplied by the manufacturer’s local distributor, Thomsun Trading. The flush mount HCS-4331 series chairman and 16 delegate stations have been installed around a large round table that serves as the conference hall. The solution also includes a 2 channel simultaneous interpretation system.
NATS Solutions’ smart classroom in Oman
Oman-based AV systems integrator NATS Solutions designed a smart classroom at Muscat Majan University College in Oman to help instructors work in a more efficient way.
NATS expertise building collaborative work environments helped them come up with a cost-effective and easy to build and use solution. The design consists of a digital podium equipped with a Crestron touch panel configured to make it easy to use installed AV components such as the projector, screen and audio system. The all-in-one audio system and video switching and control is integrated inside the podium.
The project consists of three major classrooms of differing sizes. The solution is designed to fit to any size of classroom by altering the number of speakers or screen size. Crestron’s automation products helped programme the touch panels, making it an easier interface for college lecturers.
HD-Base T technology was used to send the signal from the podium to the projectors. It also helped reduce the requested amount of cabling and made it possible to send a high-resolution signal over a long distance.
Kit used for the project included a digital podium from AHA I&C Korean; control systems from Crestron DIN-AP2 and FTA-PWR-211; Shure GLXD14/SM35 audio systems; projection screens from Kauber; Optoma EH500 projector; and Extron ceiling speakers and video switcher.
