Whitlock has a long-term relationship with Microsoft that includes the integration and support for videoconferencing rooms, video walls and collaboration spaces nationwide. Our teams have deployed audio, video and display technologies for corporate campuses, regional offices and global retail stores. Our most recent project involved cutting-edge solutions at the Redmond headquarters for Microsoft’s Executive Briefing Center (EBC).
The Microsoft EBC is home to a number of key executives and encompasses a range of modern work environments to engage with customers and partners. With thousands of visitors per year, the Microsoft EBC serves as a hub of innovation for the company. Whitlock teams worked closely with Microsoft to understand the business requirements for new spaces to be added into the EBC. We designed systems to support collaboration and demos of Azure, Office 365, Skype/Teams, Surface Hubs, devices, drones and virtual reality applications.
In addition to video meeting spaces, Whitlock designed and integrated a Digital Transformation #InRealLife experience at the EBC. This collaborative area contains moveable walls and immersive displays for profiling customer success stories on the Microsoft platform. The space offers a flexible layout, which can be transformed to present new content on the fly and refresh the interactive experiences over time. The #InRealLife exhibit contains eight Surface Hubs, projection systems and digital displays, which walk users through Microsoft solutions for healthcare, retail, finance, agriculture and manufacturing.
Whitlock teams also planned for ongoing service and support for the integrated environments we implemented at the EBC. Whitlock maintains a priority service plan for Microsoft, which includes phone support from our AVNOC and field tech support as needed.
