McKeon Group was contracted this summer to upgrade the Audio Visual technologies in three Lecture Rooms on the Dublin City University campus, moving them to the new Digital Platform that is to be rolled out across the University in the near future.
The systems installed are based on Crestron World Leading Digital Media Platform in conjunction with Panasonics latest Laser Projectors.
The brief had two main elements 1. Reliability and low Maintenance Equipment and 2. Ease of Use for the Presenter. This was achieved by the careful selection of the components in the system which include the Panasonic RW330 20,000 Hour Maintenance Free Projectors and Crestron’s award winning Touch Panel – TSW-752.
The Signal distribution is over the industry standard HDBaseT Protocol using CAT6A cable between the Crestron DMPS Switchers and the Panasonic Projectors.
The audio signals are routed to Crestron’s Energy Star Rated AMP-2210 Amplifiers which produce a true stereo image within the lecture room.
All installed equipment is housed in a 19” rack which fits into the new bespoke lectern.
In addition to the Control and Signal Distribution, lighting control was added to the system which allows the presenter to select different lighting scenes depending on their requirements.
The project was successfully completed on time and on budget under very tight timeframes in line with the new student semester.
“McKeon Group’s high level of professionalism, reliability and understanding of our business requirements are key characteristics that distinguish them from the competition. For several years we have had a strong relationship with McKeon Group and in that time they have consistently listened to our requirements and through their expert and in-depth knowledge implemented the best solution for us time and time again. I have no hesitation in stating that the solutions that McKeon Group have implemented have significantly improved the learning and teaching experience throughout our university. They have taken on board and fully implemented our ultimate requirements of Reliability, Ease of Use and Accessibility to all”.
