The VA Upper Midwest Health Care Network wanted to update its audio visual systems to enhance its training and meeting capabilities
The auditorium installation consists of a Panasonic wide format DLP projector mounted on the rear wall. A long throw lens projects the image onto a ceiling recessed 159” (13+ feet!) diagonal measure screen. This screen has an extra drop to place the viewing area below the ceiling framework. Inputs to the projection system include two computer inputs, a DVD/VCR, satellite system video signal, and a digital video recorder.
All input audio feeds a Lectrosonic digital audio processor. In addition, eight Revo Labs Executive microphones will provide audio pickup and voice amplification to the Lectrosonic unit. Outputs from the Lectrosonic feed the digital video recorder and a Crown amplifier. The Crown amplifier drives four wall mounted JBL speakers placed around the room. The wall mounted speakers were chosen due to the limited ceiling space for ceiling recessed speakers.
A Crestron control system provides an easy to use control for the various functions of the system. An 8.5” portable touch panel provides the user interface to the control system. The user has the ability to control screen up/down, projector on/off, input selections, audio selection and volume control, DVD/VCR and Satellite receiver control, digital video recorder control, and preset access of the room lighting system. Four wall mounted D-Link IP based video cameras provide overall room monitoring. All the equipment is housed in a wall mounted rack for simplicity and convenience.
