New Middle East Showroom & Demo Center
We are pleased to announce the opening of an impressive new showroom and demo center in our Dubai sales office. This is the latest addition to RGB Spectrum’s demo center facilities, located in major cities worldwide.
The new Middle East Demo Center allows visitors to interact directly with our products. The multi-purpose venue can be adapted to demonstrate various control room and other applications to suit the requirements of a range of visitors including customers, partners, consultants, and media representatives. In addition to the product demonstration area, the facility features a fully-equipped conference room. Since its inception, the center has hosted a variety of events, including product launches, technology seminars, training classes, media receptions, and special events.
Headed by William Valentine, Sales Director for the Middle East, the Middle East Demo Center features a full complement of RGB Spectrum products. The centerpiece is a MultiPoint® Control Room Management System (Enterprise MCMS), a powerful and highly-intuitive system that combines support for multi-user collaboration with secure KVM and remote control over a LAN/WAN. Video wall processing is provided by a MediaWall 4200 Display Processor. A Linx Matrix Switcher routes all system inputs and outputs, and a pair of VDA encoders/decoders integrate remote sources and operators. A DGy codec adds recording and streaming capabilities to the system.
Visitors experience the capabilities of the Enterprise MCMS system first-hand at two operator control stations. Six PCs and two media players supply content which simulates a variety of scenarios. This imagery is manipulated and displayed on a 2 x 2 video wall. Each component of the MCMS system can also be used independently to demonstrate additional product-specific applications.
The intuitive ease with which operators can control the MCMS system has impressed visitors to our facility worldwide. Natalia Stremoukhova, a business consultant from Abu Dhabi, offered the following observations: “RGB Spectrum was new to me. The excellent product demonstration by [Sales Engineer] Shiraz Ahmed opened my eyes to many new opportunities that I am going to pursue”.
Muhammad Irshaid Ashrafi, an AV engineer with Ripple Technology in Dubai, echoed Natalia’s sentiments: “My visit to the RGB Spectrum Middle East showroom in Dubai was wonderful. I haven't experienced a more intuitive and powerful interface in any other similar system….I am really inspired by RGB Spectrum’s equipment, especially the intelligent hardware/software MCMS system, which prompted me to attend further training at RGB Spectrum’s headquarters in California, USA.”
For existing partners, the Demo Center allows them to become more familiar with our full range of solutions. For example, a visit to the showroom convinced Dr. Claude Wells, a longtime partner and Managing Director of integration firm Saudi Media Systems, of the benefits of the MCMS control system. “The MCMS demo and technical discussion in the RGB Dubai showroom persuaded me that this system is well-suited for many of our control room projects in Saudi Arabia,” remarked Dr. Wells. “Congratulations to William and Shiraz on a great showroom!”
RGB Spectrum’s Middle East Demo Center is situated in an accessible area of Dubai, an ultra-modern city that attracts business professionals and end-users from all over the Middle East region and beyond. For example, Dubai hosts the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX), held every October, the largest annual trade show in the MEASA region, with more than 100,000 attendees from over 150 countries, and is a regional hub for business activities.
RGB Spectrum’s state-of-the-art demo centers provide an opportunity for new customers to “try before they buy” and get acquainted with our system solutions. Partners can attend product demonstrations and training classes to gain in-depth knowledge about installation and operation. RGB Spectrum maintains a strong focus on the needs of our partners and customers. We are committed to delivering powerful solutions along with excellent training, support, and customer service.
