Novartis is one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, using innovative science and technology to address some of society's most challenging health problems.
As a long-standing customer, Novartis is committed to keeping up with technological advances and incorporating the latest collaboration solutions. This applies to meeting rooms, to a studio and also to the auditoriums on the premises.
The largest auditorium at Novartis, named Gehry Auditorium, seats up to 621 people. The LED wall measures an impressive 12.20 x 5.80 meters and has a resolution of 7680x3672 pixels. The sound system is implemented with elegant line arrays, which fit well into the architecture. Nine cameras were installed throughout the room for transmissions and recordings. The lectern with three speaker monitors is also part of the standard technical equipment. Besides additional projectors, 16 microphone radio links and a presentation system were installed. This room is optimally designed for collaboration functions such as video conferencing, webcasts and streaming. A state-of-the-art, fiber-optic-based transmission system provides real-time connectivity to any room on campus.
Depending on the event and requirements, the Gehry Auditorium can be divided with partitions into "Small" 169 seats, "Medium" 302 seats and "Large" 621 seats.
The two control rooms contain fully equipped workstations for audio, video, lighting, PowerPoint, collaboration and control of the LED wall or projection. Sound systems complete the control rooms. Recording functions for desired events are ensured. The three existing interpreter booths are also equipped with the necessary technology.
