Boardroom transformed with new AV system
A Mumbai bank has installed a new AV system to transform its boardroom into a modern and collaborative workspace.

India's National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) underwent a lengthy process to identify the best projector manufacturer and model for its needs. After consulting its architect and consultant Sandeep Govalkar, NABARD invited several system integrators to present the latest and best technologies.

After careful consideration, the bank chose a 135 inch dnp Giant Wide Angle optical rear projection screen, which boasted impressive size and visual acuity.

Businesses are increasingly favouring dnp’s optical flat screens. Based on optical screen technology, the screens are powered by a laser projector mounted over the screen, which shoots down from a steep angle. This gives users the same image quality as LED screens at a competitive price.

Pankaj Patil, senior manager at Cosmos, explained the reasons for choosing dnp: “Firstly, the quality is equivalent to that of an LCD panel but with no bezel. Secondly, dnp gives real value for money, taking into account cost, performance and maintenance.”

He added that other competing solutions offered similar quality, but were ruled out because of high costs and problematic maintenance.

The dnp screen is used in conjunction with a Panasonic DZ 680 projector - a compact projector that's popular with businesses thanks to its reliability, low maintenance costs and impressive brightness.

NABARD are impressed with the new AV system, which now allows them to conduct high-quality videoconferences and presentations. “It delivers superb clarity and picture reproduction, even with high ambient light,” said Sunil Mohana Krishnan, assistant general manager at NABARD’s, department of premises, security & procurement.

After the successful installation, Dharma Teja concluded: “This installation project confirms that rear projection is still highly competitive on quality as well as cost. It stole the show in an open tender against many competing technologies.”
