Wells Fargo, Hudson Yards
HB helped Wells Fargo develop and install an engaging video wall experience at its new Hudson Yards office that brings beauty, peace, and a sense of calm to those who work there. Working together with the Wells Fargo team and architects, the integration firm set out to bring nature and serenity into the workplace with the video installation. HB installed a 30-foot-tall by 6-foot-wide Planar DirectLight X LED video wall with a 1.5mm pixel pitch and sent a video production team to picturesque locales in New York, San Francisco, Yosemite State Park, California’s Big Sur, and several other locations to capture custom 8K content that would suit the unique size and aspect ratio of the wall. The end result exceeded expectations and truly brought the magnificence of our world into Wells Fargo’s office.
Akamai Technologies World Headquarters
The largest cybersecurity company in Massachusetts has consolidated multiple campus locations into a 19-story, 453,000-square-foot headquarters bursting with audiovisual technology integrated by McCann Systems. Opened in late 2019, Akamai’s headquarters features architectural details such as high ceilings and an abundance of natural light. McCann Systems was the perfect AV partner in its willingness to echo these details in the integration of the unified communication systems for Akamai. In addition to building, installing, and commissioning the audiovisual systems, McCann Systems offered on-site managed services. The conference room technology and digital signage were designed through a partnership between ACT Associates and the AV team at 145 Broadway, with help from McCann Systems.
