PolarChoice & REV Wireless: Form and Function for Corporate Boardrooms

February 13th, 2008



Leading Ohio-based sound, video, and security system integrators SoundCom Systems recently installed REV wireless systems with PolarChoice Satellite gooseneck microphones at the Medical Mutual corporate headquarters boardroom and the University Hospitals executive conference center, both in Cleveland, OH.

“Both these REV / PolarChoice systems are part of complete state-of-the-art A/V installations,“ says Brendan Dillon, Senior Engineer, SoundCom, “and all the systems needed to combine form and function, helping keep the aesthetics of each space intact while providing exceptional user-friendliness and performance. The EV wireless systems definitely achieve this to a high degree.“

The Medical Mutual boardroom features a large, ornate 24-seat horseshoe shaped conference table. Understandably, the executives didn’t want the installation of flat screen LCDs, microphones, or laptop connections to physically interfere with the tabletop. Having had success with a similar large (25-channel) REV install in Columbus, SoundCom had the solution:

“In addition to great sound quality, the REV / PolarChoice combination has proved itself in terms of style and operation. The microphones have a smart, streamlined look, and the REV receiver helps streamline the technical side of things; the one touch ClearScan™ feature allows hassle-free multiple-channel RF frequency coordination without crosstalk and interference. The logistics of RF coordination are becoming increasingly complex these days, so this is a real advantage, saving us time and saving our client money. We implemented a mix-minus 13-channel REV / PolarChoice wireless system for use during conferencing, color-coding the mics so they always operate in the same location. This easy wireless flexibility is necessary in most boardroom installs; rooms are frequently reconfigured, so the equipment needs to seamlessly change position too.“

SoundCom have had a highly positive response from the customer: “They find the PolarChoice mics user-friendly,“ Dillon continues, “they like the on/off LED, and they like being able to configure them for either push-to-talk or lock on/lock off, according to how the room is set up. Also, as the executives didn’t want mics placed right under their noses, the PolarChoice’s four polar pattern choices give you the flexibility to match the mic to the customer’s needs, as do the various available gooseneck lengths. The executives have space for their papers and laptops, and the mics give plenty of focused gain from a comfortable distance, with no feedback issues.“

SoundCom’s A/V design/build installation at the Lerner Tower Executive Conference Suite of University Hospitals in Cleveland also represents the leading edge of technology, all while offering intuitive operation and a clean look. REV / PolarChoice wireless systems are integrated into this multi-purpose space along with a high-definition video distribution and projection system, multiple plasma displays, audio and video conferencing systems, and sound reinforcement equipment, with complete control via color touchscreen.

“This was a similar situation,“ Dillon adds, “where the room is used in multiple ways, and hardware needed to be kept to a minimum. We designed a mix-minus solution for video and audio conferencing, and, once again, REV / PolarChoice was the go-to wireless solution. ClearScan made it quick and easy to get the frequencies that we needed, so we didn’t need to go out with a scanner to find open channels. These systems sound excellent, they’re easy to install, easy to use, and they look great: it doesn’t get any better than that!“
