Bellevue University

Bellevue, NE

Bellevue University came to CCS Midwest with a vision. A vision to turn a furniture storage closet into a state-of-the-art cybersecurity lab for Bellevue University’s Information Systems programs.
The system was to consist of rack-mounted computers, Shure MXA910 microphones, QSC digital signal processors, QSC PTZ cameras, a video wall processor, Mersive Solstice pods, and Apple TV feeds.
The main features of the audio-visual system were the two impressive Planar Clarity Matrix G3 video walls. The original design called for a single 6 x 3 videowall, but the design team quickly recognized that due to low-hanging HVAC systems, visibility of the display would be obstructed. To accommodate, the main video wall was changed to a 6 x 2 and the additional displays were shifted into a breakout area and reworked into a separate 3 x 2 video wall.

This pairing allows the theatre to provide screenings of full motion pictures with its 7.2 Digital Surround System offering a truly immersive and unique experience.
JBL Cinema speakers were installed to ensure proper alignment working closely with Dolby to obtain the elite Dolby Atmos Certification. The CCS team also fabricated a custom structure for audio mains and installed the world’s largest Stewart masking screen paired with Barco’s DP4K-30L laser cinema projector. Additionally, a Vaddio camera tracking system for recording and streaming was utilized, marrying both audio and visuals flawlessly.

Located in the school’s Wolfe St. building is the Anna M. Baetjer room, a multi-purpose space that is traditionally used for lectures and a range of different types of academic presentations. The room also serves as a key venue for accommodating visiting tours and hosting lectures, workshops, meetings and catered events, including receptions, and celebrations.
JHSPH completed a floor-to-ceiling overhaul of the room, updating both the design and the technology to a higher, state-of-the-art standard. CCS Presentation Systems installed the Leyard TWA Series, providing a seamless video wall installation for the room. The Leyard TWA Series also features excellent off-axis uniformity and maximum full color and brightness for vivid, high contrast imagery.

Mount Holyoke College

MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE

Bostan, MA

ENHANCE THE SOUND CLARITY AND QUALITY, BOTH ACOUSTICALLY AND VOCALLY, IN THE ABBEY AND INTERFAITH CHAPELS AT MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE.

Two chapels (Abbey Chapel and the Inter-Faith Chapel) at Mount Holyoke College had challenges for years to have successful sound quality for acoustics and vocals. Through a collaborative effort between Mount Holyoke College and CCS, a strategy was devised to create sound clarity for both speech and music.

An updated, easy to use speech reinforcement and audio playback recording system was placed in the Abbey Chapel, with a smaller system in the adjacent Inter-Faith Chapel. New microphones, mixers/amplifiers and a unique brand of speakers, Danley Sound Labs, were integrated into the space. Additionally, CCS provided audio feeds to offer live streaming for future chapel events.

The final result: The Abbey and adjacent Inter-Faith Chapels now have clear, high-quality vocal and acoustic sound, with constant intelligibility, and increased audience participation. Best of all, the chapels were technologically-enhanced without losing their historic appearance.

South Hadley, MA – CCS Presentation Systems, a New England based audio visual integrator, recently completed an A/V installation project at Mount Holyoke College, a liberal arts college for women in South Hadley, Massachusetts.

The college’s chapels, the Abbey Chapel and Inter-Faith Chapel, were slated to attain adequate sound quality for music and speech. In previous efforts to correct the problem, several sound systems were installed and modifications were made to the ceiling for the organs, helping acoustically, but not vocally.

Through a collaborative effort between Mount Holyoke’s Design & Engineering Team within the Media Services Department and CCS, a strategy was devised to create sound clarity for both speech and music.

Project Description

An updated, easy to use speech reinforcement and audio playback recording system would be placed in the Abbey Chapel, with a smaller system in the Inter-Faith Chapel. New microphones, mixers/amplifiers, and other system components would be integrated into the space. Speakers from Danley Sound Labs would be installed into the main Abbey Chapel.

Danley’s speakers have a proprietary design, providing the acoustical pattern control of the common line array speakers, without the labor-intensive setup of the common line array. These speakers also provide the ability to control the audio pattern, meaning that no matter the pitch of the voice spoken into the microphone, the sound projected would be clear.

Additionally, CCS added audio feeds to enhance live streaming for future chapel events. The final result: The Abbey and Inter-Faith Chapels now have clear, high-quality vocal and acoustic sound with constant intelligibility. Audience participation has increased. Best of all, the chapels were technologically-enhanced without losing their original and historic appearance.

University of Arizona Regents Room

University of Arizona Regents Room

Tucson, AZ

RENOVATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA

President, Robert Shelton’s, board room. The Regents Room needed a face-lift to keep up with other University standards. The board room was old and outdated with no means of real communication to other board or regents members for conferencing.

How to keep elements of the board room traditional while making it functional for the 21st century? CCS proposed a Polycom HDX 8000 hi definition video conferencing system to connect the President and regents board members to other sites across the state. Four 65″ Samsung LCD displays were hung so that from every seat in the room members are able to view important conference information.

Project Description

The focal point of the room is two displays stacked one on top of the other on the South wall. Display can function together or independently via an AMX wireless control system. Each monitor can display live television, video conferencing, computer and laptop information for conferencing purposes.

UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA ELLER COLLEGE OF MANAGEMENT

TUCSON, ARIZONA

The goal of this $125,000 project was to update classroom for 21st-century learning. Update projectors, screen, and add audio reinforcement for the class to hear the instructor. The room also required distance learning capabilities to connect multiple sites for online classes and instruction.

Project Description

CCS installed a Tandberg MXP 6000 hi-definition video conferencing system to meet their distance learning needs. Sonicfoundry’s Mediasite RL recorder captures lecture classes and streams at the same time. Lectures are also archived for On Demand presentation so students can learn at any time day or night. Two Hitachi CPWX4025n projectors and 2 Da-lite screens were put in for students to view presenter’s material. Two 55’’ Samsung LED monitors were mounted on the back wall so the instructor can see near and far side presentations.

The most unique part of the room is the Vaddio Auto Trak camera system that allows for the presenter to wear a lanyard and have the camera – via infrared signal – follow the presenter as he or she walks around the room. Controlling the entire system is an AMX touch panel that allows the presenter to send any signal (pc, video, video conferencing) to any screen in the room.

BIO 5 Institute University of Arizona

BIO 5 INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA ORO VALLEY

Tucson, AZ

The BIO 5 Institute at the University of Arizona needed up to date conference rooms for researcher’s presentations and the ability to share and view information with other research institutions nationally and globally. CCS proposed a Lifesize Team 220 hi definition video conferencing unit for face to face presentations.

Project Description

At the front of the room are two NEC P-521 AVT LCD displays. Displays can function independently, together or separate, thanks to the wireless AMX touch panel used to control the entire room. Audio quality was key, CCS proposed 4 Revolabs Executive HD wireless microphones for users to place them anywhere in the room and be heard. Once they are finished, users simply place the microphones back on the charging dock for later use.
