- It's nothing fancy – just a small room with a table, display, connectivity, a few chairs and a door. But, amazingly, it always seems to be occupied by people who just need a quiet place to get together and collaborate. And when you add capabilities for students to access, display and share content and/or video conference, you have a successful huddle space.
- Classrooms abound on campuses in many shapes and sizes. They are, by definition, general use and flexible. These spaces provide professors and students across disciplines with access to tools within the rooms themselves and remotely at the campus level. Due to the high demand and varied uses of general use classrooms, it is important to provide flexible sound and support a variety of device types.
- Lecture halls serve a specific class type with dynamic needs. Each room is unique in its seating arrangement and architecture, and some may be paired with a sound booth. In order for this facility to be effectively used, it requires a wide variety of AV technology to easily facilitate instruction. There may be multiple visual displays or different podium positions, but in order to be a modern lecture hall, these spaces must be able to handle all types of mobile and personal devices. A recent trend in lecture halls is outfitting them with surround sound systems to play Blu-ray content.
Active Learning Spaces
- Active learning spaces bring collaboration and group work to life! They provide group application and breakout opportunities while contributing to the greater class. For AV technology, the demands of these spaces are high with very specific requirements. The student breakout areas function like huddle spaces with BYOD (bring your own device) connectivity needs. These learning spaces need to function both autonomously and as one complete system, with easy-to-select modes.
Multi-use Event Spaces
- Multiuse event spaces serve the university community as well as outside groups – all with different sets of needs and requirements. With divisible walls, moveable furniture and installed and portable AV systems, these flexible spaces provide a unique experience to room users with a great demand on technology. In order to be effectively used, multiuse facilities require a wide variety of AV technology, lighting and control capabilities to easily facilitate instruction, conventions, performances and more.
