Case description


The experience- and board- room at FB Hout were renewed and expanded with an branded boardroom

The boardroom controls were all converted to a mobile device with multiple modes to accommodate all the different functionalities. Using the mobile device all de different controllers are now on one device.

Approach


To bring boardrooms to the next level we collaborated with Pro Systems to make every image branded and accessed via a custom UI.

Using our knowledge of mobile development and the expertise in hardware at Pro Systems, we were able to reduce the complexity of the User Experience(UX), Integrating several subsystems into one coherent and branded application.

01.Concept


To show the possibilities of the final product we made a quick render of a potential design.

Within this concept the different functionalities and possibilities were explored and added or discarded. With the final functions confirmed we could start making a prototype. From the working prototype the final branded boardroom was formulated.

02.Functionalities


For the project multiple functionalities were needed to be integrated into the touchscreen and the mobile application.

For conference calls we integrated the StarLeaf API to work in both the touchscreen application and the mobile application. Crestron functions were included in the mobile app to handle the multiple hardware solutions incorporated in the board room. As a custom solution a double camera setup was installed to show the layouts made on the table with the different types of wood available from FB Hout.

03.One device to rule them all


Because of the increasing complexity of the boardroom a mobile application was created to integrate all the functionalities into one device. This device only displays the active/accessible functionalities in the current mode and the option to switch modes. The mobile application can also set restrictions for the use of the boardroom by visitors.
