When the neighboring office suite adjacent to Norwest Equity Partners (NEP) became available, NEP jumped at the chance to expand their footprint to occupy the entire 36th floor of the IDS Center. NEP looked to their long-time partner, MSpace, to update their AV technologies to seamlessly integrate up-to-date presentation, sharing and videoconferencing solutions–and intuitive controls for all–across a dynamic set of new and updated spaces including a large board room, an adjacent, collaborative lounge space, an intimate meeting room, and an employee workout room.


Calhoun Conference Room & Lounge

NEP’s large conference space, the Calhoun Room, is part client presentation space and part company gathering space thanks to the movable NanaWall that opens to connect the room to the adjacent lounge. In the Calhoun, proper, Polycom Realpresence videoconferencing, Barco Click-Share wireless connectors and in-table, wired HDMI and VGA inputs connect to an 80” Sharp Interactive Display, enabling a versatile mix of presentation and communication. The system is managed by a Crestron 16×16 DigitalMedia switcher controlled via wall-mounted 10.1” Crestron touch panel or Crestron Control App running on iPad Mini.

The adjacent lounge space, equipped with another 80” Sharp Display, Barco Click-Share Mini wireless connectors and wired inputs is controlled by a 7” wall-mounted Crestron touch screen–allowing for further BYOD sharing and use of AppleTV, cable TV, and Sonos audio system.

When the NanaWall is opened between these two spaces, a Lutron sensor allows the Sharp displays to mirror each other to create a much larger, multi-purpose space perfect for company-wide meetings and events. Revolabs Elite wireless mics enable crystal clear video and audio calls–with VoIP audio calls via ClearOne digital signal processors. The entire space is wired with JBL speakers powered by QSC amplifiers.

Nokomis Meeting Room & Workout Room

With a smaller footprint, and more intimate seating for six, the Nokomis features a 60” Sharp Display and wired PC connections integrated into the conference table for collaboration and presentations. The workout room is wired for video and audio, including a 70” Sharp Display and Apple TV to allow employees to AirPlay their own music into the space. Both the Nokomis and the workout room utilize Extron amplifiers for excellent audio quality and Crestron 5” touch panel controllers for intuitive source control.
