VIDELIO Digital & Media, is French leader in the design, implementation and support of video systems, is known for its expertise in all things digital media. In Overture, the international firm found an ideal, cost-effective yet intuitive way to streamline the internal management of the many meeting rooms at its Gennevilliers headquarters. Not only are costs kept to a minimum and automation maximised, but the remote helpdesk feature also provides VIDELIO with immediate information about the use of its spaces, as well as alarms and notifications.

French audiovisual technology expert VIDELIO-IEC, a long-term Barco integrator, was key to the success of the impressive installation at Cité du Vin in Bordeaux, France. One of the many Barco solutions installed was Overture, Barco’s IP-based AV monitoring tool.

VIDELIO is a large firm operating in 30 locations across France. Every VIDELIO branch has a number of meeting rooms, which all contain different devices – displays, projectors and ClickShare devices – and hardware. “Our meeting rooms contain devices and hardware from different vendors, and different users have different roles and permissions. We, therefore, needed a flexible AV control solution that can be easily scaled up or down depending on our needs – without huge IT costs,” explains Olivier Chaminade, technical director at Videlio-IEC. Remote access and an easy-to-use visual interface were just as important.

Overture ticked all the boxes. Barco’s monitoring tool controls the equipment in 25 Videlio meeting rooms at VIDELIO’s headquarters in Gennevilliers (France). Bring-your-own-device functionality was implemented, and existing in-room tables were configured in Overture.

“The remote helpdesk lets us see in real time how meeting rooms are being used, by whom, and via which devices. Alarm monitoring and problem resolution is a simple matter, even if our team is offsite,” says Olivier Chaminade. In short: Overture helps VIDELIO save huge amounts of time while cutting costs.

The AV integrator is now planning the deployment of Overture at its facilities in Nanterres and Marseille, too.
