Post-it notes, fabric samples, and video displays allow the room to become a giant interactive storyboard. Participants can easily see what will happen if they make a design change and their design staff can rapidly overlay different pieces of information to show them the anticipated results. The room is equipped with multiple display options around the room with a ceiling-mounted document camera for presenting drawings, samples, etc. to the team. A new video conferencing systems was installed to allow for collaboration with other offices, outside vendors, or to their customers. The room is controlled by a wireless iPad, running Crestron’s control application.
