- ROGIER B. / IT MANAGER ACCEL

In 2016, we were approached by Accel Partners--a venture capital titan best known as the first major investor of Facebook and Supercell--to design and install a comprehensive A/V suite for its new office in London. The system needed to include Sonos audio, video conferencing capabilities across three different meeting rooms, and video setups in the library and office fitness center.

A custom approach for a complex space

 

Our team had to manage multiple complexities in designing Accel’s solution. Heavy use of glass and steel in the new office’s design had produced a dramatic, stunning space, but created significant acoustic challenges. And, aesthetic considerations limited options for speaker and microphone placement.

 

TSP worked closely with Accel’s IT manager in London, sharing documents and dialogue about equipment specifications for video conferencing and strategies around integrating A/V equipment from Accel’s previous office into the new system. To boost adoption and foster a seamless working environment, we also created a custom interface that allows anyone in the office--even admin staff--to use meeting rooms.

Built to last

The Accel project required us to be flexible, creative, and responsive through every stage of the engagement. We spent extra time researching products that would deliver superior quality despite the space’s challenging acoustics, and worked with Accel to further refine audio quality by tweaking the microphones and audio processor.

 

We continue working with Accel today, finding new ways to enhance their A/V experience. Case in point: When the company recently switched its video conference provider, we worked remotely to update key systems so that they would work seamlessly with the new provider.

Accel’s new A/V capabilities enable team members in London to collaborate more closely with portfolio companies and other worldwide offices.

Creating new ways to collaborate

 

Our work with Accel has supported the company’s business priorities by creating new ways for its people to engage with groundbreaking global organizations shaping tomorrow’s technology landscape. Accel’s new A/V capabilities enable team members in London to collaborate more closely with portfolio companies and other worldwide offices from three wired conference rooms.
