A meeting of professionals lead to a successful outcome!

MTV Ltd is an expert of video and audio, and so the AV equipment at the company’s internal use should be the best in the business and guaranteed to function properly.

Electro Waves delivered and installed AV equipment at MTV’s premises at Ilmala, Helsinki, in e.g. the meeting room, hall, and auditorium in August 2016. The contact person for the project was Heli Kunnas, Property Manager at MTV Ltd. Kunnas says they “were not familiar with Electro Waves beforehand, but we found them through Google and were impressed in the tendering stage by the way they genuinely offered the things we asked for – and the price was right as well”.

Six entirely new meeting rooms were built for MTV with names and themes strongly connected to the company’s business. We were able to take pictures in the MTV SPORT meeting room, into which, like all other meeting rooms, a screen, active speakers, and all the necessary cables were installed.

“We needed equipment that could play anything. We are a forerunner in the industry, so we must have proper equipment. An old whirring data projector on the table does not sit very well with our business”, says Heli Kunnas, and continues: “Users have been very happy because the equipment is reliable and easy to use. It is important that the equipment works with a Mac as well as with old and new PCs”.

”Electro Waves acted professionally throughout the process. The AV expert had answers to all of our questions and gave good suggestions”

”It is also important that both the screen and the speakers are the right size for the space. Audio and video have been pre-adjusted, so the only thing left for the user to do is to select ‘PC or TV’”.  In addition, screens playing content produced by the media house were installed in the offices and open meeting areas of the meeting facilities.

Renewing the AV equipment was part of a larger renovation into which professionals of different fields from structural engineers to electrical designers took part. An AV designer was also involved, and their AV plan received praise from Electro Waves as well.

The entire transformation process was long: nearly 1.5 years. In addition to the meeting rooms, changes were made to the offices: “We did not only change the physical facilities, we changed our entire business model”, says Kunnas. AV equipment came along at the final stages of the process when the premises were already clean and dust-free. The electrical contractor had already finished laying the AV cables, so Electro Waves had an easy job to come in and install the equipment as agreed.

Heli Kunnas says they were extremely satisfied with the service of Electro Waves: “They acted professionally throughout the process. We first had a chance to familiarise ourselves with the equipment at their premises, and their AV expert had answers to all of our questions and gave good suggestions. The products were exactly what they had offered”.

The timetable for the project was challenging, as work had to start quickly after the decision was made on the provider. “Electro Waves did an excellent job and stayed on schedule, even though the timeframe was exceptionally tight”, Kunnas praises, and notes that they have already made additional orders. She believes they will continue to use Electro Waves in the future as well when renewing or adding to their AV equipment.
