Northeast Utilities Implements New HD Video Conferencing Solution
Beginning in 2006, Northeast Utilities contracted HB Communications to build out a complete High Definition video conferencing solution. After much evaluation, Tandberg was chosen as the manufacturer of choice. Over the next 3 years, HB designed and installed 25 integrated HD video conference rooms. Each meeting room featured either a single or dual 65” LCD monitor system, integrated table microphones for audio support and a unique “two button” concept that allowed any employee to connect via video by pressing two buttons on a Crestron touch panel.
In addition to the room integration, HB deployed a 40 port Codian HD bridge, VCS control and VCS expressway for firewall traversal and well as TMS for scheduling for all video resources. HB provides a staff technician to schedule, maintain and support Northeast Utilities’ video conference infrastructure.
