Capgemini Applied Innovation Exchange
San Francisco, CA
Thought leaders and business visionaries turn to Capgemini to shape their technology solutions. At the firm’s network of innovation spaces, known as Applied Innovation Exchanges, clients learn about and experiment with technology prototypes. The newest Applied Innovation Exchange, in San Francisco, serves as the flagship presentation center for Capgemini’s Silicon Valley customer base and focuses on co-innovation with high-tech stars and start-ups. Capgemini envisioned an environment where tech blends seamlessly and securely with hospitality-style comfort.
TEECOM designed an omniscient audiovisual experience that travels with clients throughout the Applied Innovation Exchange, powered by a central architecture that allows Capgemini to choreograph each step of the journey. Presenters use wireless tablets to control the media server remotely, activating a specific room or display with a simple selection. Presentations follow groups from room to room, eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect. Since the goal was to provide an audiovisual experience that feels natural – not to replicate “pop-up” advertising – TEECOM carefully selected system components that integrate with and complement the built environment, recessing displays and other components into walls and casework to create a seamless look.
Behind the Walls
Capgemini initially assumed that multiple parallel systems would be needed to power the presentation system they envisioned. TEECOM’s centralized solution provides the efficiency, redundancy, and robustness one would expect of a network operations center, and can be upgraded easily as technology advances because it functions as a single “component.”
