Office Spaces Digital Exclusive Recap of Season One and Look Ahead to Season Two!


Digital Exclusive Episode The BrandStar space is finally complete and we couldn’t have done it without the help of our tremendous team of participants. Check out this Exclusive Digital Episode of Office Spaces Season One for special behind the scenes footage, bloopers, and never before seen action on the set of this exciting project! The series will re-air on Fox Business Sunday’s at 5p starting Aug 7, 2016.


Video Distribution and Fiber Optic Cables


In order to carry high resolution images and graphics in 4K, Brandstar needed a much higher end CABLE – Specifically a FIBER OPTIC SOLUTION! That’s when we brought aboard Robert D’Addario from Cleerline Technology Group. Cleerline’s SSF Technology has redefined fiber optics, and the way installers large or small have to deal with the installation process for incorporating fiber optics into their system architectures. Their ultimate goal is to make fiber optics installation and implementation as easy to manage, and work with as Category Cable UTP, removing the fear, and complexity of terminating, and handling the cable systems.


Video Distribution Platforms


With so many different types and sizes of monitors in this office space – from video walls and TV screens to computer screens and smart boards – Kalyn’s design challenge was to find a way to display the SAME picture and message on ALL of the multiple screens at BrandStar. That’s when she came across Bob Michaels – the CEO of ZeeVee! ZeeVee is a manufacturer of video distribution equipment. The hardware allows BrandStar to project the same image on multiple platforms! ZeeVee is the right choice to build for the future with products delivering standard, HD, and Ultra HD video to digital displays and TVs, and also delivering IP video via standards-based, off the shelf IT networks and displays.


Video Conference Solutions


Kalyn’s overall goal and design concept was to create a boardroom that houses cutting edge technology with the ability to record information and share it easily. Tim Henry from Sony Electronics showed her the best cameras to fit the new space. The whole concept behind Sony cameras is the ability to communicate and collaborate in a more efficient manner. Sony is a world renowned technology leader and its image sensors deliver amazing, high picture quality second to none. Sony is a unique manufacturer in that it can deliver the total user experience from lens to living room with its Consumer and Professional product lines.


The Importance of Staying Connected in the Office


In the old office building, cellphone coverage was spotty at best – and employees often had to walk down hallways and get close to windows in order to even FIND a signal. With the help of Advanced RF Technologies, we prepare to address an important aspect of communication: cellphone coverage! ADRF Technologies has the solution in a cell phone repeater. Watch this episode to discover this amazing technology and much more.


Interactive Displays


With all this technology now wired in place, Kalyn wanted to find the easiest and SMARTEST way to INTERACT with it all. That’s when she came across SMART TECHNOLOGIES at the NeoCon Show in Chicago! SMART’s business solutions focus on liberating knowledge workers from unproductive meetings and engagements, enabling faster decision making and reduced business risk. SMART provides solutions and services that help turn formal or informal meetings to a time when people can actually collaborate and where work actually gets done. Smart Kapp is a traditional, simple to use dry-erase board or white board that actually is digitized – so you can capture the content and share it with anyone all around the world!


Office Spaces – The Trophy Show


On this week’s episode we will install a grand reception desk made of COMPAC quartz stone.  We’ll make an entire wall into a trophy case made from CARVART glass, install a bold submaterial felt wall, and let’s not forget about another important element – COLOR! MMAD paints a site specific mural. AND Kalyn finds furniture from SERIES Seating and Dauphin that is both functional and fabulous.
