Two NEC NP-PA550W widescreen projectors with long throw lenses now sit on customized, ventilated shelves at the rear of the room inside the top of the door frame each projecting to Draper Targa Series 137” screens. A Crestron Digital Media infrastructure with an 8×8 DM switcher allows connectivity to the lectern, two floor boxes containing power, Ethernet, XLR inputs, HDMI connectivity, and a patch panel in the equipment rack located in a closet at the back of the room.
The lectern contains connectivity through an Extron Cable Cubby that includes VGA and HDMI laptop connections, an MP3/IPod connection and a USB connection. An 8.4” Crestron touch panel is flush mounted into the lectern, plus the room can be controlled wirelessly via an IPad. A PC dedicated to this room and a Blue Ray DVD player will also be housed in the lectern. A Crown dual channel audio amplifier with 500 watts per channel was used to power the system speakers – including six Extron ceiling-recessed speakers. A Bosch Audio Conference System with 24 microphones (1 for every 2 people) was specified to handle Butler University’s conferencing needs. A Biamp Nexia TC audio processor was integrated for echo cancellation and clear, crisp audio conferencing.
