About this session:
The presenter will share experiences and lessons learned from the construction of a large new performing arts and humanities building. The first phase opened for the Fall 2012 semester, with the second phase following in Fall 2014. It contains six performance venues, six general purpose classrooms (three with video conferencing), a music recording studio, and many other specialized instructional spaces. The presenter served as the primary campus AV representative for the duration of the project. Project challenges included working with two AV consulting agencies, multiple campus clients, limited funds, and the outfitting of highly specialized areas. All the AV systems accommodate both digital and analog AV signals, present a common user interface, and allow for future capacity.
