As one of Spain’s largest banking groups Banco Sabadell require first rate corporate AV facilities, operational at all times, to enable international communications and presentations in a bi-lingual business environment. Leading Spanish AV systems integrator Sono were responsible for designing and installing the AV systems at Banco Sabadell’s London offices, with Crossover brought on board as a trusted local partner to provide installation expertise and on-going technical support, service and maintenance from a Central London base.
In May 2016 Banco Sabadell’s London offices were moved to the 37th and 38th floors of the iconic Leadenhall building (also affectionately known as The CheeseGrater for obvious reasons). The building is 226 metres high and has 47 floors in total. Towering above the City of London the offices enjoy state of the art AV facilities for boardroom meetings, videoconferences and presentations.
AV specialists Sono designed and carried out the initial
installation for Banco Sabadell, flying in a team from Madrid and Barcelona for
the works to work with Crossover’s technicians who utilised local knowledge to
guide Sono’s team during the installation process. Invaluable knowledge of
trade suppliers in London (and just as important, knowledge of the best spots to
eat and drink) ensured that the teams could work efficiently in delivering this
high-end corporate AV installation on time and budget.
On the back of the smooth working relationship established during the initial installation, Crossover were then enlisted by Sono and Banco Sabadell to provide on-going technical support, service and maintenance for the AV systems.
Working to a comprehensive checklist agreed upon by all parties following a detailed analysis of the usage and , Crossover service the AV systems in meticulous detail; cleaning, testing and maintaining the AV facilities so that Banco Sabadell have communication and presentation systems that reliable and long-lasting.
One of the standout features of the AV facilities at Banco Sabadell’s London offices is the interpretation system. This enables conferences to be truly bi-lingual, with the help of a dual channel Bosch interpretation system built into the infrastructure of the major videoconferencing and meeting rooms. An isolated booth houses up to four interpretors, who monitor the feed from individual microphones in the meeting room tables that capture the voices of conference guests. The interpretors then broadcast a translated version back through the system, either to the headphones of guests in the room or to the remote destination taking part in the videoconference.
