ArtsWestchester Council partners with Elite Design Systems for Cutting-Edge Technology Upgrade

Westchester, NY — February 9, 2024 — ArtsWestchester  (ArtsW) is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Elite Design Systems (EDS) to revolutionize its technology and communications infrastructure. As a globally recognized arts institution, ArtsW understands the importance of seamless connectivity and efficient collaboration across its board members and staff, who are spread across the country and around the world.

The Challenge: Bridging Distance and Time Zones

ArtsW faced a significant challenge: how to bring together key stakeholders, decision-makers, and creative minds for crucial discussions, brainstorming sessions, and company-wide updates. With team members scattered across different continents, organizing face-to-face meetings was logistically complex and often impractical.

The Solution: A State-of-the-Art Conference Room

Enter Elite Design Systems. EDS, a leading technology solutions provider, undertook the transformation of ArtsW’s outdated headquarters conference room. The goal was clear: create a cutting-edge space that would facilitate seamless communication, foster collaboration, and transcend geographical boundaries.

Key Features of the Upgraded Conference Room:

  1. Zoom Integration: EDS seamlessly integrated Zoom, a powerful video conferencing platform, into WAC’s conference room solution. Now, the board of Directors and staff from around the world can participate in meetings, workshops, and town hall sessions without leaving their respective locations.
  2. Global Connectivity: With Zoom, over 50 remote participants can join discussions alongside 50 individuals physically present in the conference room. The virtual and physical spaces merge effortlessly, allowing for real-time interactions, idea-sharing, and decision-making.
  3. Enhanced Networking Infrastructure: Rick Ortiz, Chief Technology Officer at EDS, spearheaded the implementation of modern networking technologies. The upgraded infrastructure rivals that of Fortune 500 conglomerates, ensuring lightning-fast data transfer, crystal-clear audio, and high-definition video quality.

Rick Ortiz’s Statement:

“We are proud to have transformed WAC’s conference room into a ‘State of the Art’ hub” said Rick Ortiz. “Our mission was to bridge distances, enhance collaboration, and empower creativity. Now, WAC’s board members and staff can connect, innovate, and inspire—regardless of their physical location.”
