Credit Union One, one of the largest credit unions in Michigan with numerous offices, approached AVI Systems to update an executive boardroom that contained outdated technology. The client required a complete presentation system, including telepresence and rear projection gear that could fit into an existing space. Moreover, the installation had to be simple to use for executives, with minimal support from IT.



After gaining a clear understanding of how the client worked, AVI created a unique system that allowed for a high level of collaboration yet was simple to operate. Our solution included a custom-built Da-Lite rear projection system with a 5,000 Lumen NEC projector capable of displaying numerous signal types, both analog and digital, via three inputs recessed into the table. A LifeSize Telepresence system displayed on both the rear projection system and an ancillary 50” Samsung LED for dual-monitor functionality. Speakers and microphones in the ceiling provided a clean and cable-free tabletop. The entire AV system and existing Lutron lighting system was controlled by a wireless 6” Crestron touch-panel with one-button functionality for most needs.

In addition to providing Credit Union One a fully integrated Telepresence system that allows locations around the country to connect seamlessly and securely, AVI completed the project on time and within 1% of the estimated budget.
