Jamboree Housing Corporation, based in Orange County, California, is a developer of affordable housing throughout California. They build quality, LEED-certified homes and provide housing services for low-income families, seniors, veterans, the homeless, and those with chronic mental illnesses. Since their founding, the nonprofit organization has developed more than 90 affordable housing facilities, from San Diego to Sacramento.
When it came time for Jamboree to remodel their conference rooms, they knew they needed a multi-purpose space that could be used for presentations and that would give them the ability to host video conference calls with remote workers. Seeing that Jamboree already used Microsoft Teams for other collaboration efforts, Fluid Sound created a Microsoft Teams Room that uses a Crestron Flex unified communications system to give them a straightforward video conferencing solution.
The client needed a video conferencing system for their new conference room that would be simple to use, deploy, and manage, and that would allow them to easily connect with remote workers. The room also needed the ability to be partitioned into smaller huddle rooms or to function as one large conference room for larger all-hands meetings.
The team at Fluid Sound created a Microsoft Teams Room using a Crestron Flex unified communications engine package. With this setup, video conference calls can be started on time with one-touch join functionality. The call is then instantly projected on the room’s dual monitors. A touch-enabled scheduling panel was added outside of the conference room, giving team members visual notification of any meetings currently in progress and any future meetings scheduled in that conference room.
The Jamboree conference room also features a Crestron control system for control and routing of the various video signals to the room displays, and a Biamp digital signal processor to manage all of the audio signal routing requirements. Biamp’s Parlé digital Beamtracking ceiling microphones provide crystal-clear audio for the Microsoft Teams video conference calls.
