When Volksbank Rhede eG were looking to install a state-of-the-art AV system in their new conference room, Andreas Ridder (responsible for EDV-Administration) asked around for advice.


He ended up talking to the AV integration company Thies Bürotechnik GmbH & Co. KG and went ahead. The installer immediately grasped that the main advantage of the bank’s bright, airy new conference room was also its biggest challenge.

How could they provide a high-quality visual display when there was so much natural light? Their solution was a frameless 120” dnp Supernova Blade Screen.

When Ridder saw the screen, it was love at first sight. He understood right away how this sleek, ambient light rejecting screen would help visitors focus on the content of the bank’s training sessions, lectures and board meetings.

Another of the bank’s key requirements was that it should be possible to divide the single large conference and training room into two smaller ones when needed. The physical separation was easily achieved with a mobile partition wall. But what about the AV system? Thies Bürotechnik GmbH & Co designed it so that the two parts of the room can be technically independent of one another.

Image and sound signals are automatically separated when the partition wall is drawn.

Every detail of the AV system was meticulously planned and implemented – from the
inconspicuous installation of the ceiling speakers and beamer to the slimline dnp Supernova
Blade Screen itself. Even the placement of the lights in the room was adjusted to achieve the best possible results for projection, and the air conditioning unit was moved to make way for the EPSON EB-L610U Laser Projector.

The whole system is smooth and easy to operate. Presentations are initiated simply by pushing a button on the customized, wall-mounted touch panel.
