ASSEMBLY OF BANCA POPOLARE DELL'EMILIA ROMAGNA

Modena (Exhibition centre), Ravenna (Pala De André), Avellino (Auditorium Banca della Campania), Lamezia Terme (Former Sir congress centre), April 16 th 2011

The intervention of Tecnoconference Europe – Del Fio Group in the Ordinary and Extraordinary Shareholders' Assembly of this banking group has been unique in Italy. The meeting was attended by over 12 thousand people, representing a total of 33,368 members. Just considering the high number of participants and the complex procedures associated with the type of event, it was taken into account, for the first time in Italy for events of this kind, to carry out the works in multiple locations simultaneously using the more advanced technology.

The broadcast-quality connection took place via satellite in both directions (from Modena to the three sites and vice versa from these to Modena). Given the type of event (important corporate topics were discussed) absolutely no risk could be runned, even the slightest inconvenience to the audio and video communication system, as this would invalidate the meeting with an enormous economic damage. Tecnoconference Europe therefore designed a complex back-up "active" system which included the doubling of all the means of transmission, reception and satellite channels (as many as eight) and satellites (two).
The bank charged a pool of engineers to assert in front of the President of the Court of Modena that all the instruments complied with the law provisions relating to technological support for assemblies' resolutions regarding stock and finance.
Tecnoconference Europe took care of all the technological aspects of the event, from the project to the direction, also including the video and audio services in the four locations, from the shooting in the hall with full HD direction devices and cameras, to the shooting in the outside (registration desks, catering and voting areas, etc..). A total of 50 multi-kind cameras, a very complex emission direction, incorporating and mixing various contributions (graphics, timers, power point files, live images), audio line Array systems (the maximum definition of sound today available), a "star" centre in Modena, handling all the video and audio signals, both in and out, as many as 15 high brightness and resolution projectors, more than 200 monitors from 19 to 100 inches, a team of over 50 technicians in the four locations, a complex closed-circuit system between the multiple locations within each site, including the crowded press areas (equipped with video and audio connection), was finally involved.
