The main focus of the project was the large five metre wide, tiled LED videowall in the main lecture theatre - a ground-breaking indicator of future lecture theatre display trends. The 2.6mm fine pitch digiLED iMAG2600 was selected for its stable colour management, innovative mechanical design, low power consumption and seamless screen surface. The digiLED solution was also unique in offering servicing access from the front, a necessity in this situation.
The system is managed by Crestron DMPS-300c control housed in a bespoke teaching lectern, along with a visualiser and Crestron Capture HD-PRO lecture capture system utilising two remote pan/tilt cameras.
At the Collegiate Crescent Campus the installation of an integrated WUXGA projection and audio system in the 220-seat tiered Lecture Theatre was also underway. In addition to state of the art projection and audio capabilities, the project included the provision of a new high performance lecture capture and streaming system. The audio installation comprised Biamp Matrix systems, a surround sound processor and more than twenty specialist loudspeakers, from 800 watt sub-bass units to monitor speakers located in the projection room.
