Extron Products Improve Twitch Workflow and Collaboration Spaces at New York HQ – rAVe [PUBS]

Twitch builds communities by providing a platform for millions of people to come together live every day to chat, interact and create their own entertainment. To help their employees work in fluid team combinations, the meeting rooms at the new regional headquarters in New York (called HQ 2.0) include high-performance audiovisual presentation systems. Each system also supports overflow capabilities. The support team can monitor and operate any system from a remote location if needed. Working side by side with Twitch AV Support, Diversified, the AV integration form, deployed a standardized solution using Extron products.

“We chose to work with Extron because they embody our mission and values ​​here at Twitch to empower communities to create together,” said Kevin Little, AV Support Engineer at Twitch. “Through our collaborative efforts with them, we know that Extron is a community that really works hard to create solutions that work for us. “

Rooms include the company’s standardized selection of sources and displays. Each space provides DTP matrix switching or point-to-point presentation systems that operate within Twitch’s infrastructure and organizational requirements. The size and use of space determined the number of sources and screens as well as the type of system installed. Systems include wired and wireless connectivity, collaboration using an Extron HC 404 system, session recording, PA and video conferencing capabilities.

As an example, the All-Hands event space on the nineteenth floor features a 3 × 3 video wall in the front and a trusted monitor mounted on the front side of the first column. An Extron DTP CrossPoint 108 4K IPCP MA 70 10 × 8 presentation matrix switcher with built-in 4K scaling makes it easy to switch and distribute the AV signal. For convenient overflow using professional AV-over-IP, Extron NAV E 101 encoders and NAV SD 101 decoders support displays installed near the north and south entrances on the Twitch network. Portable HDMI devices can be connected to the system using one of the DTP T HWP 4K 331 D gang wall transmitters installed on the front and back walls. To support Twitch’s custom SDI I / O wallplates and built-in SDI sources, Diversified installed Extron SW4 12G HD SDI four-input switchers and DSC 3G HD A scalers to provide local switching and downscaling. signal to HDMI for input to the matrix switcher. DSC HD 3G A units convert the output signals back to SDI for devices connected to an SDI wall plate. A lockable cabinet with rack-mounted system components, such as the matrix switcher and the NAVigator system manager for NAV Pro AVoIP devices, is located at the back of the room.

Twitch 2 Case Study

The chosen DTP CrossPoint matrix switcher provides an integrated DSP audio processor with AEC and a control processor. Many audio sources required the use of an Extron DMP 128 C AT DSP processor, so an XPA 2001 70V audio amplifier would work in conjunction with the SF 26PT SoundField 6.5-inch two-way pendant speakers to create a distributed audio system. The unique design of the speaker’s single cable suspension allowed them to be recessed into the ceiling beams without a foreign support system.

The executive meeting room on the twentieth floor has the same functionality as the All-Hands event space. The main differences are the installation of a DTP CrossPoint 86 4K IPCP MA 70 8 × 6 presentation matrix switcher and an Extron OCS 100C occupancy sensor, which is mounted on the ceiling. It detects that someone is entering the meeting space and activates a series of automated functions, such as turning on the lights and turning on the screen. Its built-in smart software monitors the room and automatically adjusts timer settings and sensitivity using ultrasonic and passive infrared sensing technologies.

The Twitch support team can monitor and manage the installation remotely using the GlobalViewer Enterprise resource management application. These products and the mixed communities of Twitch, Diversified and Extron created the perfect environment for joint collaboration on Twitch HQ 2.0.
