Smart Meeting Room Control
New York-Based Company Updates Conference Room With RTI Control
About the Project
The client wanted a lot of options — multiple laptop inputs, videoconferencing via Teams as well as other web-based conferencing platforms, lighting and volume control, plus the ability to send any presentation device and videoconference to any display or all at once. Because of the size of the room, they needed exceptional audio quality and coverage throughout the entire space.
To deliver high-quality audio for both the near end and far end during a video conference, Mattera installed 13 Shure
MX418D/S gooseneck mics, 10 Sonance Pro Series PS-C63RT speakers, and a SnapOne Episode® 70V IP-Enabled Amplifier with Biamp DSP. To ensure visual meeting equity so that participants would be able to see and give presentations from anywhere. Mattera installed one 86-inch LG display that was outfitted with an Atlona HDVS-CAM-HDMI PTZ camera and flanked by two Samsung 75-inch displays.
The RTI control ecosystem unified the experience with intuitive control customized for the room. Users can control the entire system, including the Lutron lighting from the RTI KA11 11-inch touchpanel and from the RTI Control app running on an iPad. The GUI interface has been customized down to the last detail using RTI’s Integration Designer® to ensure users can command and control the room’s AV devices and start video conferences with a tap on the touchpanel or iPad.
Smart Meeting Room Control
Meetings today are much more robust than they were 10 years ago. There are a multitude of video conferencing platforms (Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Webex, Google Meet, etc.). Add to that, in-office participants need to be able to connect their laptops and other devices quickly to share content to room displays or projectors. To get the room meeting-ready includes adjusting the lights, turning on displays and video cameras, enabling audio via microphones and speakers, and the list goes on. It can be overly complex for users who don’t have time to wrestle with technology and must use every minute of meeting time productively. That was the case for a corporate boardroom for a company based in New York that sought out the AV expertise of Joe Mattera, owner of Mattera V Design. He designed and programmed an extensive AV system for the 40′ x 15′ boardroom that could launch meetings in seconds and be intuitively controlled using RTI.

“The client was blown away by how simple it is to control everything from the customized RTI user interface."- Joseph Mattera
