Toronto-based, specialist audio visual consultants to the education sector, Advanced Inc., are pleased to announce the implementation of a number of value-add initiatives designed to rejuvenate and enhance students’ usage at the University of Toronto.
The deployment consisted of a ceiling-mounted projector and projector screen, a digital audio processor, a large flat-panel LCD screen and a multi-functional, portable, custom lectern for presenters.
The two guiding principles set out by the University of Toronto before embarking on the project was:
- Ease-of-use/user friendliness
- Maintaining a low overall cost by using the most economical products.
The project in detail:
- Ceiling-mounted projector & projection screen
A large Draper projection screen was installed on the east wall for presentations projected from an NEC ceiling-mounted projector fixed on a Draper motorized lift.The projector can be raised above the operating height when not in use however, the main purpose of the lift is to lower the projector to ground level for service and lamp replacement.
- Digital audio processor
The system is also equipped with a Biamp digital audio processor to control audio signals and matrix them to specific areas of the space used for the events taking place. Audio signals from the presentation system and voice support are processed through the d.a.p. and connected to Biamp power amplifiers that drive the room’s TOA speaker system.
- Large, flat panel LCD monitor
A large-format, NEC, 65″ flat panel LCD monitor was mounted on the side wall that will be used to display either the University’s branded digital signage or live TV.
- Portable, custom lectern with touch panel
A portable custom lectern was provided for presenters. The lectern has the facility to connect a laptop to the system and a Crestron control touch panel on the lectern allows the presenter to control all aspects of the audio visual presentation. Additionally, the room environment can also be controlled including lighting levels along with motorized blinds.
