This beautiful and huge intervention consisted in the design of a multifunctional building for GD Company, a world leader in the production of packaging machines.
The program of the competition required the design of most buildings within the corporate campus to house activities in part to the exclusive use of the employees of the company - nursery, restaurant business, company club, gym - and partly opened to the public - training school, auditorium, museum - with the aim of improving both Company internal services and its public image. Videoworks S.p.A. was responsible for the realization of multimedia and home automation systems for training rooms, it created the internal auditorium projection in 3D and took care of the surround sound system, it set up the MAST GALLERY with monitors and scenic effects and provided the best amplification sound area in the gym and throughout the building. Videoworks realized also streaming system and digital signage and especially, in partnership with Cisco, the IMMERSIVE TELEPRESENCE for video conferencing at the highest level and quality.
FOR THE MUSEUM
Videoworks supervised the construction of "touch screen" walls with interactive projections thanks to sensors that, recognizing the human hand, let the projected figures talk. The presence of 47" transparent monitors that, with their own depth allow ourselves to look through, is unique. Behind the transparent monitors in fact was made a niche containing objects visible on the screen, however, which in turn independently, continues to project images and words as a TV. The large video wall consists of 17 integrated monitors (including 4 transparent) that are activated by the passage of people. There is also a huge 103" Monitor horizontally integrated in a table and 3 46" monitors that simultaneously reproduce a single panoramic image. Videoworks also organized the temporary installation "Heavenly Orchestra" with monitors suspended from the ceiling reproducing images of violins that appear as stars in the sky.
FOR THE COMPANY RESTAURANT
Videoworks installed two 75" monitors with the possibility of spreading the music and with an integrated microphone
FOR THE CAFETERIA, GYMNASIUM, KINDERGARTEN AND TERRACES
Videoworks took care of video, audio and of the study of the diffusion of sound. The monitors are everywhere for the projection of institutional info, videos, movies, and communications. Very Interesting is the installation of inwall speakers completely integrated and hidden in the ceiling and coverable with any material, in this case plaster, to maintain a high aesthetic level and meet the architectural requirements.
The auditorium represents an excellence. Videoworks created a video projection system with the use of 3D active glasses and full HD screen extendable up to 9 meters with very high performance and incredible sound system to support top quality Cinema surround, conferences and live music. Videoworks provided the state of art surround speakers integrated into the structure of wooden beams and the system of simultaneous translation and amplification ad hoc for the hearing impaired.
It's a wing of the Centre with 7 classrooms, one specifically designed for the innovative and unique in Italy "Immersive Telepresence" which thanks to lighting, furniture and walls always the same for all the parties makes you look like to be all in the same place rather than in the same conference from different locations in Italy and abroad. All the classrooms are equipped with their own video conferencing system to communicate independently with the outside but also with the inside of the Center, between the various areas bi-directionally.
Regarding the control home automation Videoworks was responsible for the management via IPad or via touch panel of lights, curtains and furniture panels modulation acoustics.
