Advanced awarded Contract to Design New GE Energy Head Office

Project to include design and installation of one of the largest videowalls in Canada

Advanced,a leading supplier of audiovisual solutions, has offered clients innovative consulting solutions for more than two decades. Seeking to leverage the company’s industry expertise, GE Energy recently awarded Advanced an exclusive audiovisual contract to provide collaborative audio visual solutions and display and design solutions for its new Canadian head office in Markham, Ontario.

“Advanced was selected from a list of top AV solution providers in the country,” said Mark Mulford, President & CEO. “We are excited to have won the bid to provide an impressive audio visual solution for GE’s new flagship facility in Markham.”

After a year-long evaluation process, Advanced was short-listed for this opportunity.  Against some of the top audiovisual companies in Canada, Advanced was selected as the GE Partner, after demonstrating our videowall expertise by way of hands-on demonstrations, held both in Mississauga, Ontario and New York City.  This level of expertise helped to solidify both the technical and post-installation support capabilities of Advanced.  Advanced was then awarded the exclusive contract to design and supply audiovisual and collaborative communication solutions for the new GE head office.

The multi-million-dollar contract includes the design and installation of one of the largest videowalls in Canada within GE Energy’s state-of-the-art customer experience center using the innovative display products from Prysm. Advanced is also slated to design four floors of AV and collaborative communications solutions, including Smart Technologies and Polycom videoconferencing. At the new GE Grid IQ research collaboration center, the company will collect and analyze Ontario’s smart meter data to create new ways to boost energy conservation and shift more electricity use to off peak times.

The project is currently in the development phase with installation completion is expected later this fall. Stay tuned to for more information on Advanced’s leading work with GE Energy’s Canadian head office.
