Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals develops medicines that treat intractable diseases by silencing the genes that cause them. Using a broad portfolio of RNA chemistries and efficient modes of delivery, Arrowhead therapies trigger the RNA interference mechanism to induce rapid, deep and durable knockdown of target genes. RNA interference, or RNAi, is a mechanism present in living cells that inhibits the expression of a specific gene, thereby affecting the production of a specific protein. Arrowhead’s RNAi-based therapeutics leverage this natural pathway of gene silencing.
Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals came to Fluid Sound looking to remodel and upgrade their existing video conference room. They needed the system to include a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) experience. The room also needed to integrate with Microsoft Teams so that participants both in the room, as well as on the far-end (remote participants), could collaborate effectively.
The challenge in this project was to create a video conference solution that could start meetings with a single click of a button. These meetings needed to be integrated with Microsoft Teams and be shareable from any of the participants devices (BYOD). Both audio and video needed to be transported over a standard Ethernet network for the far-end and near-end meeting participants. Arrowhead wanted the newly installed audiovisual infrastructure (cameras, ceiling microphones, loudspeakers, etc.) to be available for any meeting host who schedules the room and prefers to host the meeting using their BYOD laptop.
Fluid Sound installed Shure digital array ceiling microphones for high-quality, echo cancelling/noise-free audio capture. Shure’s Intellimix conferencing processors were also used for multiple connectivity options allowing for seamless integration with Shure conferencing microphones, a users BYOD laptop, and even mobile devices. A Dante digital audio network was installed to transport far-end and near-end audio ensuring that both on-site and remote participants could be seen and heard.
Barco Clickshare wireless presentation devices are used for BYOD supporting Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or any other conferencing platform installed on your laptops or other mobile devices. The Barco Clickshare Wireless Presentation device connects the existing in room AV infrastructure (camera, ceiling microphones, loudspeakers) to your BYOD devices.
