The entry was for IVC's work to complete the unified AV, IT and Telecoms communications system for the entire Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa complex, on the Cape Verde Island of Sal, off the coast of West Africa.
IVC was contracted to design and build a state-of-the-art centralised AV, IT, IPTV, IP-CCTV, WiFi and access control management infrastructure using the latest point-to-multi-point fibre technology. Also integrated onto the network was a full hotel hospitality system including multifunction VOIP and Dect telephones, voice mail, room service and integrated billing to the whole resort.

Ray Harding, Chairman of IVC Media, said: "IVC has created every element of a complete working unified communications system that is easy to manage and maintain, achieving The Resort Group's vision of a future-proofed, high bandwidth capacity network that supplies multiple services to the entire resort while maintaining optimum performance.
"The fibre network is based on passive optical networks, alleviating the need for costly power sources situated across the resort complex, the total system can be remotely monitored from almost anywhere in the world. By engaging with the client IVC has conceptualised, designed and delivered a truly sophisticated, system that provides an insight into future opportunities for the AV industry."
