Case Study: ZeeVee delivers cost effective HD programming throughout Dome’s new corporate office.p>

Dome Consulting provides project commissioning management to the construction and property development industry as well as innovative software solutions to the property, construction, asset and FM global markets.

Dome was expanding their presence and opening a new office in Holborn, London where they had very specific requirements for their audiovisual needs. Dome wanted to distribute HD programming throughout the office including open office areas, huddle rooms, meeting rooms, and an executive boardroom at the most affordable cost point.

Dome enlisted the help of a London-based office fit-out contractor to support the build-out. The contractor in turn brought in their preferred audiovisual partner, MVS Audio Visual, to help design and install the AV requirements for their new space. Once brought into the project, MVS worked directly with Dome to ensure their requirements were understood and executed.

Having evaluated a few RF encoders on the market, MVS selected to use ZeeVee’s ZvPro 810. MVS installed six new TV screens into the open office areas to display 24-hour news channels as well as major sporting and political events when desired. The meeting room and boardroom screens required access to both the internal Freesat distribution (also installed and commissioned by MVS) as well as the premium satellite feed. The HD video feed was distributed to all TV screens via the new infrastructure, using the ZvPro810 HD encoder.

With ZeeVee products, there was no additional requirement needed for the multiple satellite boxes. Also, the ZeeVee solution was incredibly inexpensive compared to that of a HDMI matrix with HDMI extenders over Cat5/6, and much more time efficient.

“The ZeeVee HD encoder was the best product on the market for the applied solution,” said Alistair Maher, Business development Manager, MVS Audio Visual. “ZeeVee products are reliable and very attractively priced in the market,” stated Maher. “The pre-sales support was pivotal in the decision to use the ZvPro, and the post-sales support is second to none,” he continued, “MVS has installed modulators in the past and the ZeeVee is by far the leading example of a best-in-class video distribution solution with great support behind the scenes.”

“We are extremely satisfied with our new office and the AV solution works effortlessly,” stated Elizabeth Kent, Dome Consulting. “With ZeeVee, we were able to create a high-tech office space and deliver HD programming throughout the space – our clients and employees alike are very impressed,” Kent stated. “And, by partnering with MVS, not only was the project achieved within budget, but it was designed and installed within the very tight schedule,” she said.
