3D Audio Visual Solutions realized that a local demonstration venue was needed to showcase their systems and enable a customer experience. The Design Centre was already in the early planning stages but had now been accelerated. Geoff Baker, President of 3D Audio Visual Solutions, explains “It’s one thing to explain the benefits and key features of a product or simply show them a photo but the real magic occurs when people hear the full range of speakers or the quality of a microphone.”
3D Audio Visual Solutions reached out to SFM to partner for the project. Jodi Rhuland, SFM Eastern Sales representative, understood the vision and need for the new space. “As an audio-visual integrator 3D Audio Visual Solutions wanted to provide a complete experience able to fit any customer need.” After researching the best options for the space, Geoff and his team decided on the Shure IntelliMix P300 audio conferencing processor and an MXA710 linear array microphone, MXA mute button, and a set of Microflex MXN5W-C networked speakers. “It’s a full-service centre, there’s even a coffee bar with enough coffee mugs to caffeinate half the city!” said Rhuland.
The new 3D Audio Visual Solutions Design Centre offers customers a full audio-visual experience enabling them to see and hear a variety of products and scenarios, allowing for a well-educated and confident decision when choosing a systems solution.
The Design Studio has allowed 3D Audio Visual Solutions to showcase the best of breed technologies to many new and existing customers. The way people work and communicate has, and continues to change due to the pandemic. Geoff Baker and the whole team are very happy with the result. “It’s great to work in an industry that accommodates these challenges and to be able to highlight new solutions. It’s a wonderful feeling when you demonstrate a new AV solution to a client, and it just clicks with them by filling a specific need. There are many ‘wow factor’ moments each week and It’s really cool to be a part of that.”
