Sony has always been on the cutting edge of technology. With products ranging from digital media hardware and software to personal electronics and gaming systems, their Northwest Operations Center required innovative and progressive systems design to support their extensive technology needs.
As Technology Program Managers, RLS provided services and construction documents for all of the building technology systems within Sony’s Northwest Operations Center. Our scope of work extended to both the voice/data/video network communications systems, and the building A/V systems.
In addition to standard components of a structured cabling system (e.g. cable tray, routing, support) the system encompassed specialized requirements to integrate Rolm telephone switching and video conferencing systems; Ethernet, FDDI, LocalTalk, and IBM 3270 protocols; and specialized cabling for the AV systems.
The audiovisual systems required custom control software for various components, most notably the Employee Electronics Store and the Security Systems Control Console. RLS was also responsible for design of a 10,000-sq. ft. Conference Center and an audio lab/studio.
