Raymond James Financial Center

Mission: Improve Collaboration and Communication

Headquartered in St. Petersburg, FL, Raymond James Financial is a nationally recognized firm that specializes in innovative investment and financial planning. The leadership of Raymond James sought to implement state-of-the-art AV technology that would enhance their presentation and communications abilities within their primary auditorium, with a focus on audio/video conferencing capabilities.

Action: Keeping It Simple and Flexible

AVI-SPL’s integration is marked by simplicity and flexibility without sacrificing quality. When operating as two separate spaces, each area of the Raymond James auditorium is equipped with a large tensioned projection screen by Draper and Christie projectors. Two NEC displays are featured on each side of the screen, promoting maximum visibility for each audience member. Each podium is equipped with AMX touch panels so that lecturers have full AV control over their presentations. Our team also integrated wireless microphones and cameras that tie into the audio/video conferencing system.

Impact: A Hub for Collaboration

It was important to provide a high level of versatility to the newly integrated technology. The lecturer has the ability to control basic operations from the podium; they can also turn their session over to a primary operator stationed in a customized control room. From here, the operator has the ability to manage all AV technology using AMX control. The two cameras give remote attendees a clear view of the presenter and display materials.
