Unilever chooses ClearOne for their new, state-of-the-art training facility.
Unilever, the global brand for products such as Dove and Flora, needed to create a training facility at their Four Acres site in Singapore to conduct brand leadership and training programs for the Asia Pacific region. IT and AV integration firm Principle One was contracted to carry out the project. They chose ClearOne to provide the audio and video backbone for this state-of-the-art installation.
It was important for the client to be able to stream music to multiple zones within Four Acres. Voice announcements, messaging, and digital signage were also a priority that needed site-wide distribution.
ClearOne StreamNet® technology provided the solution for all of these needs in one package. There are 24 dedicated zones, including training halls, syndicate rooms, an amphitheatre, and a gymnasium. Dining facilities, a leisure center, and meeting rooms for the senior staff were also required. Audio and video is fed throughout two main buildings to forty-nine end-points.
A ClearOne ANTHOLOGY® media server was chosen as the main audio source. Four simultaneous audio feeds are available at any time throughout the zones. Control is provided via an iPad so that the end users can pick and choose their background music.
