Engel & Völkers
Premium Media Technology for High-Tech Headquarters
We Are Custom Tailors for Every Interface
Engel & Völkers is known as the world’s leading service company in the brokerage of exclusive residential and commercial properties in the premium segment. Amptown System Company developed and integrated customized conference systems for the company’s new headquarters in Hamburg’s HafenCity. The installed systems meet the requirements of the latest standards in the realization of digital solutions and the desired corporate look and feel. In addition to planning and installing this complex project, the main task for the professionals at ASC was to develop and program the software and to design the user interfaces. Engel & Völkers’ standard Google Meet working environment used for meetings had to be perfectly integrated and allow intuitive operation via touch panels. ASC developed an interface that closed the gap between the control system and the Google application, and a Bluetooth device that enables hands-free communication between conference call participants via microphones and speakers integrated in the room. In addition, ASC equipped the atrium of the headquarters with extensive innovative media technology. An almost 13.5 square meter LED wall is completed by a wireless presentation system with a video processor and HD camera, point-source speakers as well as fixed and portable microphones. The room is controlled via a touch panel. The Engel & Völkers’ in-house academy and the conference rooms were equipped with UHD/4K displays, front speakers, and ClickShare systems that transmit image signals wirelessly. Signals are provided via a digital audio network interface. The amplifiers and digital sound processors are housed in network cabinets. Google Meet sessions are realized via ceiling microphones and an AV-USB bridge device. The intuitive operation is carried out via 10″ touch panels. A central monitoring system manages and supervises the entire media technology in the building.
