Heriot Watt – School of the Built Environment have recently renovated a room to provide seminar and video conferencing facilities. With a campus in Dubai, the SBE required a simple, cost effective but reliable solution. Audio Light Systems installed a Crestron MPC-M20 presentation controller mounted on a mobile lectern which holds the Kramer matrix, Apart amplifier, Toshiba DVD/VHS, Ampetronic loop amplifier, PC and the Polycom QDX6000 video conferencing codec. Audio Light Systems also installed a ceiling mounted NEC NP410EDU data projector. As well a controlling the signal routing to the projector and codec, the room volume and DVD/VHS functions, Audio Lights Systems interfaced a Crestron DIN-8SW8 mains relay switch to allow the Crestron controller can switch the front lights above the projection screen. Finally, the Crestron MPC-M20 has been interfaced with Crestron Roomview allowing the IT support department monitor the room and deal quickly with simple issues without the need to go to the room.
