Vatican makes further av investment

Now it’s video conferencing
The new brew cinema at Stiegl Brauwelt features a panorama film in five languages with a floor projection on a surface of about 200 sqm. The visitors are able to enjoy an exceptional visual beer experience. The walk-in cinema which is designed as a multi-dimensional projection space offers an unrivalled and unique insight into the world of beer and its origins.
Iconic London store Harrods has just unveiled its newly refurbished Escalator Hall 3 as owners, Qatar Holding, continue to invest in the customer experience. The concept celebrates the store’s rich heritage and architectural history while integrating the latest in digital media technology, including 16 new escalators over seven floors that feature super-high definition video-walls – providing Harrods brands optimum advertising opportunities.
The Comédie Française in Paris is one of the most important and historic performing arts institutions in the world, and since 2013, is now operating with Tannoy’s innovative QFlex beam-steering technology in its main theatre.
Last month we reported the Vatican had invested in Panasonic plasmas for digital signage, surveillance and control.
Now we hear that the Vatican City has selected Vidyo videoconferencing to ease communications between offices of the Holy See – the episcopal jurisdiction of the Catholic Church in Rome.
Until now, the Vatican City had been using traditional communications tools that no longer fulfilled the needs of a growing organisation with offices worldwide.
The selection of Vidyo’s platform was made by the Telecommunication Department of the city, which oversees the adoption of technologies within the Holy See.
It reviewed a variety of different video conferencing solutions during an evaluation phase for a high-quality, cost-effective, video communications and collaboration platform.
Since most of those who would be using the system were not technically savvy, the system needed to be easy to use, access and maintain.
Vidyo’s solution would allow anyone in the Vatican City to use video communications easily, even those with less technical knowledge. A reduction in travel costs and a positive impact on the environment were icing on the cake.
