“We chose Smart-e equipment due to its features, flexibility and, very importantly, reliability. We believe Smart-e products are far superior to similar equipment, and the fact that their systems are deployed in many mission critical environments across the globe, gave us added confidence.”
“As a business we need to form close working relationships with our suppliers and we have found the Smart-e team to be highly experienced who understand their field inside out. The banking industry can be highly challenging, yet we found Smart-e are always prepared to ‘go that extra mile’ to provide innovative technical solutions.
Roger McArdell, Highly experienced AV professional, Director of the AV User Association, from Barclays Bank
"We have been especially pleased that the system meets all our technical criteria and fits so well with the architecture and interior design of the show room. It is an ideal complement to the Audi brand".
Hugh McMahon, Dealer Principal, Glasgow Audi.
"We used Smart-e’s SNX-8x8+ matrix because their equipment is specifically designed to work with CAT 5-8 cabling and the building is flood wired with CAT 5e - the result is that additional screens/projectors can be temporarily added to the system in various parts of the building’s exhibition spaces. Two of the main halls feature two additional video outlet points in suitable locations when temporary screens are hired in, however all of the CAT 5e cabled points are within the limits of the matrix at XGA resolutions due to the central location of the comms and AV racks."
Tony Hopkinson, Partner at Hi Q Sound.
"We chose the Smart-e matrix because it fulfilled this complex remit, is cost effective and because all Smart-e equipment is specifically designed to work with structured cabling, it was the perfect option for this building which is flood wired with CAT 6 cable."
Richard Lister from integrator Pure AV.
"We use the system as a very productive and flexible marketing tool to display good teaching practice to college visitors. Information is transmitted, via the Smart-e equipment and over the CAT 5 cabling network, from free view, powerpoint and DVD , as well as live stream from classroom-based camcorders to plasma displays around the college. The system works very efficiently and without any problems, and we are so impressed with it that we are looking to buy a second system for our Chapman Campus which is located on the same site."
Alistair Dunnett, Audio Visual Senior Assistant, Gloucestershire College.
"Smart-e has been instrumental in the development of Scotia UK plc's audio visual solutions from conventional coax cable distribution to cat5e connections. Our installations are now nearly 100% cat5 based meaning higher reliability, faster installation, and easier changes to system layouts. The high bandwidth of the products meets or exceeds the levels achieved with older layouts and the ability to create large multi format matrixes is enabling us to squeeze twice the capability into half the space. Add to all of this that they are nice people who genuinely try to meet all their commitments all of the time and you can say that we are very pleased to have them as suppliers."
Gordon McLoughlin, Director, Scotia UK Plc.
"Smart-e equipment is compact, multi-format, flexible and, we feel, is far superior to similar equipment."
David Tucker, Director, JellyBean Ctrl Ltd.
"Smart-e provide innovative products, accompanied by an excellent service from a highly knowledgeable team… I have found their technical support to be second to none."
Fraser Hamilton, Director, Netpractise.
"The Smart-e equipment is ideal for this application as it gives us pretty much a one-stop capability ie. fantastic images and sound and a camera control operation too. It is resilient enough to withstand the rough conditions experienced at sea and is extremely reliable - both essential when the next visit to port could be several weeks.
"Running cable on a ship can be tricky due to space restrictions. However, the Smart-e equipment uses just one cable to transmit and receive all signals, this is extremely advantageous both during installation and for saving space on board".
Mike Lewis, Managing Director, MadNat.
