PAVE System and Partners Conduct Successful “Innovative Solutions For Workspaces” Event

Held from 5th to 6th December at the School of Computing and Information Systems 1 at the Singapore Management University (SMU), the “Innovative Solutions For Workspaces” event attracted end-users from the Education, Banking, Government and Corporate segments in Singapore.


The genesis of the current event stemmed from the triumphant culmination of the 2022 “Enhancing Educational Experiences” gathering hosted at the National University of Singapore. Building on that success, PAVE System orchestrated a renewed collaboration with its esteemed partners—Audio- Technica, Epson, Extron, HP (Poly), and Samsung—for the “Innovative Solutions for Workspaces” event. Drawing inspiration from the valuable feedback garnered during the 2022 edition, the Workspaces event unfolded on a grander scale, boasting an expanded array of stations and comprehensive system solutions.

The Showcase


Audio-Technica showcased their Engineered Sound Wireless (ESW) System that provides endless possibilities with 96 channels coverage and their voice lift firmware for their ATND1061DAN beamforming ceiling array microphones. As both the ESW and ATND1061DAN utilise the Dante connection, it makes for quicker and easier installation and allows for great flexibility for various meeting and educational spaces.


Epson featured their Epson EB-1485Fi projector that doubles up as a true PC-free digital whiteboard that allows users to draw, save, print, and even email without a computer. Users can deliver impactful sessions with a multi-touch display of up to 100 inches (16:9 standalone), 120 inches (16:6 standalone), or 155 inches using Epson’s DuoLink feature, which combines two interactive displays using built-in Edge Blending. Also showcased were the Epson EB-L570U and EB-L770U versatile projectors that bring strikingly clear images to meeting rooms, classrooms and beyond. This conveniently lightweight, compact projector offers native WUXGA with 4K Enhancement1 and 5,200 / 7,000 lumens of brightness, respectively, providing smooth, detailed images—even up close. Also displayed was the Epson EB-810E, which is Epson’s first 4KE super-ultra-short-throw laser display designed for businesses, hybrid working and immersive spaces. This can be placed just centimetres away from a wall to create bright 4KE images up to 160”. It projects content in stunning clarity and offers a low-cost, energy-efficient large display solution with a convenient and quick set-up. EB-810E’s super-ultra-short-throw lens allows discreet positioning close to the wall, enabling presenters’ free access without casting shadows.

In addition, visitors got to experience The Microsoft Teams Room (MTR) that combined Extron and Poly solutions. MTR Meeting Room Systems have positioned themselves at the forefront of the Unified Communications (UC) landscape, capitalizing on the recent surge in popularity driven by the proliferation of video conferencing solutions over the past five years. The integration of Extron and Poly technologies with MTR empowers users to seamlessly participate in virtual meetings by leveraging their existing video conferencing systems or simply connecting their laptops through a user-friendly USB interface compatible with any codec. This versatile approach not only facilitates effortless engagement with the installed VC system but also provides users with the flexibility to utilise their preferred peripherals on their laptops, offering a tailored and inclusive communication experience.


Further experiential spaces included Extron’s DMP Series digital audio processor and Extron XPA U 2008 FX amplifier and Extron speakers, seamlessly integrated with Audio-Technica ceiling microphones featuring Voicelift capabilities.
