Mexico City has recently had the “Torre Azul” (“Blue Tower”) added to its skyline. This impressive, high-technology building takes its name from the official colors – blue and white – of the insignia of Mexico’s ruling party. Torre Azul is the party’s headquarters and communications centre, where all information coming from the National Senate House is analyzed and discussed, and where the party’s members, senate advisors, and spokespersons take action on these issues.
The building contains a complex network of video, audio, and VGA signals, and Kramer is there to route, switch, amplify and distribute these signals. This technology is the backbone of a critical video, audio and information infrastructure required to get the legal apparatus of the party’s senate running, and Kramer provides reliable 24/7 equipment that complies with the requirements of such a critical and vital application. The legislative decisions taken in this building affect all of Mexican society, so it is essential to keep the information flowing, 24 hours a day, inside the party’s senate body. The great performance characteristics of Kramer devices make them suitable for such an enormous project, and the project specifications were not only met but surpassed.
The decision to install Kramer and Sierra Video Systems equipment in this facility was made by Asesoría Profesional en Comunicaciones (APC), one of the main Kramer dealers in Mexico, and a very experienced integrator of corporate projects such as auditoriums, conference rooms, virtual distance learning facilities for colleges, institutions, corporate businesses, and government customers.
Mr. Jaime Gaspar, director, and general manager of APC assembled a team of the company’s specialists to design and build the whole system. Mr. Gustavo Cruz, the project leader, led a team of enthusiastic professionals who were dedicated to accomplishing this project.
