Workspace collaboration - technology supports digital first strategy

In a rapidly changing educational market, this worldleading learning company provides a growing market share and provide equity of opportunity through tech investment – so it follows that they’re taking a similarly forward-thinking approach to their workspaces, too.

Integrated and portable AV systems

Business Challenge

Key to the organisation’s success is its ability to listen to learners and use this feedback to ensure that people have the best experiences possible. This learner-experience focus put technology at the forefront of the company’s strategy, while its emphasis on experience also extends to their staff. These elements were both behind the decision to create AV-enabled spaces in the education specialist’s new Oxford office. Having previously worked with Aura on equipping their London headquarters with cutting-edge AV technology, the firm was a natural choice of partner.

A consistent approach was taken across the boardroom and meeting rooms. In each, large-scale dual displays enable both content and the faces of remote participants to be viewed simultaneously, while being mounted on a swivel wall bracket allows for easy maintenance, plus this also means that devices can be placed behind the display to keep the area looking clutter-free. Speakers mounted beneath each display provide sound to the room, while remote participants receive a visual feed of the room via a camera, with sound from every part of the space picked up either by mic pods distributed along the length of a table, or ceiling-mounted microphones.

In the smaller spaces, smaller displays have been specified – each to suit the specifics of how the space is used. For example, in the booths – used for informal, impromptu meetings of up to four people – each has a 27” TFT display with an HDMI cable, for quick and easy laptop connection. In the collaboration spaces, a more flexible and sizeable combination of 50” interactive whiteboards and cameras mounted on trolleys have been chosen, to help facilitate a wide variety of uses, including interactive sessions and townhall meetings

"The knowledge and helpfulness of the Aura team has been essential in helping us to update and improve our office spaces, especially as the pandemic has caused us to accelerate these plans over the last year"
