For the German EU-Presidency in the second half of 2020 POOLgroup was assigned to built a professional online conferencing studio at the premises of the Federal Ministry.

Production details

In order to make professional streaming conferences possible at the Federal Ministry, we built a temporary studio in the location of the “Bundeshaus” in Berlin. Besides the streaming studio itself, we equipped another 160 sqm room with the respective interpreter technology, and in a third room we created sufficient working spaces for technical direction and content direction.

Due to a flexible construction concept of the studio, classical online conference situations as well as seated and standing round table discussions with up to 5 physical participants can be produced. Of course, we meet the regulations of distance and hygiene standards due to Covid-19.

We built four fixed installed interpreter cabins to enable simultaneous interpreting in two languages. This technology can be scaled up to 10 cabins for a 5 language-regime at any time.

POOLgroup built the entire studio facilities with over 12 disciplines in-house (e.g. audio, light, video, interpreter technologies, streaming technology, set construction and furniture) within only 10 days, ready to go-life.
