Exelon Quad Cites Goes Green/Paperless

Print | E-mail

Following the Chairman’s Lead

Exelon_Quad_2Exelon Quad Cities Station, in keeping with the Company’s Chairman’s resolve to be more efficient and green, enlisted Media Resources to upgrade its main Room 215 at the nuclear power plant. Meetings are scheduled almost around the clock at the plant. Many documents or “Plan of the Day” handouts had been provided to each of the participants for review. This created mounds of paper and required many resources beyond that of paper consumption.

Brian Maksa of Media Resources was asked to provide system that might help alleviate the problem.

The goal was to provide a way to convey the daily plan without the mounds of paper for each participant and eliminate many hours of preparation for the daily meeting.

System Operation

The conference room consists of four LCD monitors displayed in a four sided scoreboard setting. These are used for both presentation and videoconference modes. A fifth monitor provides the view of the far end camera if needed. The room can display various PCs located within the room, access to wireless VGA for laptop connectivity, audio conference via Clearone 840T, HD videoconference using the Tandberg 3000 integrator codec with two HD cameras. The system is controlled via an AMX control system. The touch panel is an eight point four inch unit that is wall mounted in a docking station that serves as a charger for the wireless touch panel when docked.
The control system is accessible via the company’s IT Intranet to allow staff to access control of the audio video system for support of meetings and web browser access allows for a back up control in case the touch panel is inoperable.
