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.

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 The board room was old and outdated with no means of real communication to other board or regents members for conferencing.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.

New England Aquarium & IMAX Theatre

NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM & IMAX THEATRE

Boston, MA

UPGRADE THE AUDIO AND VIDEO SYSTEM IN THE MARINE MAMMAL CENTER AT THE NEW ENGLAND AQUARIUM.

The New England Aquarium is a global leader in ocean exploration and marine conservation. With more than 1.3 million visitors a year, the Aquarium is one of the premier visitor attractions in Boston and a major public education resource for the region.

CCS Presentation Systems was hired at the start of 2016 to help with audio and video enhancements for the aquarium’s New Balance Foundation Marine Mammal Center, Simons IMAX Theater, and Main Building’s public address (PA) system.

While discussing the objectives for the recent renovations, Robert Loyot, director of information technology, said, “Over the last year I tasked CCS with the job of overhauling three significant audiovisual systems at the NEAQ. The CCS team faced several challenges associated with these projects. As one might expect, these systems had been through various upgrades and enhancements over their respective lifecycles, and CCS had to do quite a bit of homework in order to safely decommission, gather proper updated requirements, design, and finally, deploy new systems. All three projects were total successes and the many stakeholders that were touched by this work were completely satisfied. CCS is my go-to AV integrator at this point.”

The Marine Mammal Center’s goal was to update the audio and video system. “The MMC team was looking for new functionality from their system to improve their interaction with the audience,” said Craig Wiley, CCS’s technical operations manager. “They also aspired to be ready for a more interactive experience with potential ‘virtual’ attend-ees in the future. With this in mind, we chose products that were the most flexible, as unforeseen system needs were bound to happen.”

To accomplish this, CCS began with troubleshooting the existing systems and interviewing the folks working in the area to understand their needs. The devised plan for system upgrades began with rebuilding and updating the aquarium’s existing equipment rack for ease of use, followed with improved quality of audio for the Marine Mammal trainers and presenters.

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.
