The Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina was recently purchased by KSL Resorts. The first phase of an $88 million renovation has been completed which included upgrading and refurbishing 97,000 square feet of meeting spaces and three ballrooms.
Upon purchasing the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, new owner KSL Resorts saw an immediate need to modernize the property’s meeting room collaboration technology to support today’s hybrid meeting trends.
The Sheraton Hotel needed to meet their guest’s expectations that a meeting hosted at the hotel could support both on-premise and off-site meeting participants. In a hybrid world, collaboration technology needs to accommodate both in-room and remote audiences.
A video conference solution was needed to be designed so that meetings could operate within the Zoom Room platform and also allow a user to bring their own device loaded with their preferred conferencing solution (BYOD).
Fluid Sound designed & installed hybrid meeting systems featuring built-in Zoom Room systems allowing users to join a meeting by simply typing in a meeting code. Also installed are are 85-inch Samsung Flip screen displays that can also be used as a digital whiteboard.
Shure digital array ceiling microphones along with a Biamp audio processor were used to accommodate the acoustically challenging room dynamics which transports all audio digitally over a Dante network.
