Jonathan Blackwood, an editor for Corporate TechDecisions, correctly sheds “light” on the topic of Videoconferencing in regard to true human collaboration,
“The disadvantage is that you aren’t in the office. Face to face interaction is still critical. Body language and facial expressions are still important to human interaction. Videoconferencing, however, oversteps these obstacles by putting people face to face.”

When we first arrived at Omidyar Network to survey their telepresence and videoconference rooms, we noticed the elegance of their mission statement, modestly placed on a reception wall, but quickly got down to the business of measuring distances, noting light elements, color temperatures, and camera and projection locations.
Five countries and eight facilities later, we became curious about just what this client did in fact do in these rooms: Omidyar Network, a philanthropic firm, is truly in the business of improving the world by improving the lives of the people who inhabit it. The vision of Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, and his wife, Pam, Omidyar Network is tasked with empowering individuals to develop new services and businesses and in doing so, enhance their own communities.
How does a team of individuals headquartered in Redwood City, CA effectively reach their colleagues, employees, and grantees globally? Being tech-savvy Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, they naturally leverage technology, specifically, videoconferencing and telepresence technology. For this illusionary technique to effectively work, lighting is the critical component, and this is where Brightline fits in to the picture, literally illuminating for comprehension and comfort, while exceeding the globally-growing consciousness of minimizing energy consumption. Brightline worked with Omidyar Network’s IT and Facilities management to design low-wattage lighting solutions for their high-functioning video communication rooms.
At Brightline, we are proud to play a critical part in the efforts of such a premier and admirable organization as Omidyar Network, enhancing their video communication product as they enhance lives across the world.

The City of San Leandro recently completed a substantial renovation of the audio, video and broadcast system for their City Council meeting room. Their upgrade consisted of four Sony HD cameras, new lighting and audio, and a new voting system. The voting system includes touch pads on the dais and at the clerk’s desk. A master control room, as well as multiple video screens in the chambers and in overflow seating areas, was added. A broadcast-quality Brightline lighting system was integrated to illuminate the council with front and back light. The Council selected Brightline SeriesONE, with a white custom finish, to complement the room aesthetics. DALI dimming control integrates through an RS-232 conversion device to the Council’s AV processor. The energy-efficient Brightline lighting system provides for a rich video look that is comfortable for the Council’s members. With these state-of-the-art upgrades, the City Council can now broadcast on local cable feeds from Comcast and AT&T.
