University Profile

The Goethe University, based in the financial centre of Frankfurt, is one of Europe‘s top universities. With over 36,000 students, it is one of the ten largest universities in Germany. The newly built Westend Campus has extended the university‘s reputation as an innovative research and educational establishment even further. Equipped with extensive, state-of-the-art media technology, the newly constructed Auditorium Centre, the House of Finance and the Law and Economics Faculty are a real focus of attraction for these leading German financial institutions. During the periods when there are no lectures, the Auditorium Centre and the video and conference rooms in the House of Finance are much sought-after venues for meetings and board meetings held by the large banks, such as Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank.

Initial Situation

Hessische Baumanagement (HBM) was responsible for organising the tender procedure for the construction of the three new buildings on the Westend Campus. HBM established the budget framework for the project, and at the same time paid close attention to the specific requests and requirements of the Goethe University.
The university had already stipulated that, in particular, the media and conference technology of these new buildings should be state-of-the-art and of the highest quality. HBM passed this specific requirement on to the chosen media technology planners, the Hartmann and Mathias Partnership, who then appointed the media systems company BFE Studio und Medien Systeme GmbH to  nd a suitable quality product. Selecting a supplier to provide the integrated monitors and screens was easy: ELEMENT ONE, the market leader in the field of moving monitors, was the obvious choice. With ELEMENT ONE products, the highest quality standards demanded by the university and the required adaptability of the different monitor systems were guaranteed.

Integrated Monitor Solutions

Due to the specific product options offered by ELEMENT ONE, the optimum monitor solution was found in each case to suit the different conditions of use and the different applications. Lecterns in seminar rooms and auditoriums, as well as media tables in the individual video and conference rooms were equipped with ELEMENT ONE monitors. ELEMENT ONE can provide the perfect solution every time from monitors which retract in a vertical position, through to monitors which are installed into the desk surface or those that have flexible adjustment. “This obviously makes the situation so much easier for us“, explains Alexander Rick, who is responsible for conference and media technology at the Goethe University. „Previously, we had to hang the beamer on the ceiling and bring along a laptop. Now, we have a USB stick instead. We simply press the button, the screen emerges and we‘re ready to start!

„The Goethe University is considered to be one of Europe‘s top universities, so of course the technology it uses must also be of the highest standard. Already in the planning phase the focus was placed on selecting only the very best media technology. And, in the field of moving monitors, ELEMENT ONE is quite simply the market leader.“ (Alexander Rick, responsible for conference and media technology at the Goethe University Frankfurt)
