Convene comms for 'Le Tour'

As the historic Tour de France event got under way in Leeds, the team at North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) saw the need for a scalable and constant communications solution.

What was essential was a totally reliable, round-the-clock AV network, connecting the Council’s five control rooms by video and audio, enabling managers to share plans, maps and information boards visually - and instantly. 

With demands for updated logistics escalating rapidly as the Grande Depart approached, the Emergency Planning Team turned to Visavvi for a solution based on our Convene video conferencing service, already in use by the council.

The system was constantly live at each control room and worked well, keeping the planning team, senior officers and the emergency services in touch with each other. With the software on Smartphones, we can see many possibilities for its use at future events."
