Crestron shows off control systems in new CCS project collaboration

Among a number of noted CCS Southwest projects helping to create audio-visual solutions, one in particular stands out for its coordinated effort with our partner Crestron.

audio-visual solutions CCS Presentation SystemsCrestron helps connect people with its integrated audio-visual systems for every room, every application and every budget. Using any Mac or PC, Crestron’s RoomView software provides real-time remote control and management of all rooms, devices and subsystems such as AV, lighting and HVAC. System expansion is easy; every room and each device is simply another node on the network throughout the building, across the campus or around the globe.

In this particular example, CCS chose Crestron control systems products to integrate at the main student learning center at Chandler-Gilbert Community College. The 18,000 sq. ft. Bridget Hall building in Mesa, AZ is a new home for students, comprising a learning commons and student activities center, and includes meeting rooms, conversation spaces and a student lounge.

CCS designed and installed a new state-of-the-art A/V system at Bridget Hall, working with a team of systems people and architects on the multipurpose classroom/common area for students.

The Chandler-Gilbert community college came to CCS seeking advice, project help and integration expertise for an interactive A/V system. Their staff wanted CCS to work with partners that could help provide seamless communication across its space, allow teachers to switch up programs and lessons easily and help get students engaged with the technology and learning processes of the classroom.

CCS managers worked with the building’s architects to suggest alterations in construction that would benefit the audio-video system involved. Once those details were ironed out, then the integration focus began.

For the project, Crestron provided its Digital Media System, which offers A/V distribution, system control (through its Crestron MPB20 15-button control panels) and management for analog and uncompressed HD digital content. The software used in the system is the Crestron RoomView software, which is a great tool for coordinating devices connected to the system. Not only does the Room View software make managing separate devices a breeze to remotely control from a desktop computer, but the software also automates some technical and managerial functions for more efficiency and support.
