To effectively serve students and provide the most up to date technologies for instructors, Brown College administrators sought out Tierney Brothers for this project.
Tierney Brothers has extensive experience in higher education technology and installed an NEC VT695 LCD projector displayed onto a Da-Lite model C screen with controlled screen return (CSR). This projector has a native XGA resolution and 2500 ANSI lumen brightness.
Tierney Brothers developed a user-friendly system that required little training for the presenter as well as an extremely bright image and a feeling of warmth and familiarity necessary for such an educational institution. During implementation, Tierney Brothers provided timely updates on project progress and notified contacts of potential issues to negate untimely surprises.
A wall interface for connection to a PC and DVD/VCR combo provided the necessary input for the projection system near a teacher’s workstation.
The audio system consisted of a pair of Audix speakers located on each side of the screen with volume monitored with an Extron Medialink controller. In addition, the Extron Medialink controls functions in the room such as projector on/off and volume level and is wall mounted.
