The Radisson Blu Hotel in Berlin has announced it is to offer its business guests a new dimension of conference equipment.

The first class hotel in Berlin, located right next to the magnificent Cathedral, is now offering business guests using the hotels' DomLounge the opportunity to hold conferences that benefit from innovative technology and interactive communication, as well as a breathtaking view.

"Nikolai 1", the largest conference room in the DomLounge, which offers a stunning view of the Berlin skyline, was completely redesigned within a period of four weeks and is now equipped with two movable screens, two projectors, seven 52" LCD monitors and state-of-the art Apple AirPlay technology. This means that conference guests of the hotel in Berlin City can transfer photos, videos with sound, web pages, presentations, tables, documents and content from any application directly and wirelessly from their iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad to the digital whiteboard in the conference room. The technology is extremely user-friendly with most functions simply requiring the touch of a button and the quality is exceptional.

"Interactive communication of this kind is new on the Berlin market and represents a unique service for our international clientele. Welcome to the future," commented Ralph Goetzmann, the hotel's General Manager.

Via the Berlin onsite iPad, conference participants can control the room's technical facilities themselves, including light, sound and room darkening. Apple AirPlay also broadcasts the current presentation wirelessly on the two standalone screens.

"The new technology makes planning more flexible: time for laying cables can be dispensed with, meaning we can change the layout more quickly to accommodate different seating plans. Then we can focus more directly on meeting our guests' requirements", explained Ralph Goetzmann.

Before it was remodelled, "Nikolai 1" was able to accommodate 128 people in a classroom seating formation and 200 using theatre style seating. It can now hold 200 or 400 guests respectively. This is possible, thanks not only to the innovative wireless presentation facilities, but also to the fact that screen projection is supported by the room's seven additional 52" LCD monitors, which can be installed on the pillars if required. The monitors can be rotated in any direction, allowing every Berlin conference participant to enjoy a clear view of the presentation.

The conference facilities at the DomLounge of the Radisson Blu Hotel are among the most outstanding on offer in Berlin. With a total floor space of 1,400 square metres, the DomLounge occupies the seventh and eighth floor of the hotel and offers exceptional views of Berlin and its landmarks, such as the TV Tower, the Red Town Hall and Berlin Cathedral. Five different conference rooms and four lounges can be individually configured for a variety of events, from private receptions to large conferences. The hotel also offers 427 rooms of Berlin accommodation, all boasting exceptional views of the Berlin skyscape making it an ideal choice for business travellers.
