There is a growing awareness of AV solutions among management of national universities, and incorrectly designed or inappropriate AV systems are becoming increasingly rare. This is a positive change in the educational market which enables us to put our skill at work in an area that used to be dominated by solutions of poor functionality and low quality.
Our experience of tendering and delivering projects in the public sector, combined with broad knowledge of solutions popular in a corporate market, enabled us to overcome operational and administrative challenges of this project.
The Lower Silesian University of Entrepreneurship and Technology in Polkowice placed a high premium on the AV system. We were appointed to do the AV system design but primarily to ensure the following features:
Following an in-depth needs analysis we designed a system that would satisfy the expectations of the client and the requirements of the end users – university employees and students. A clear technicaldesign resulted in smooth execution the following audio-visual elements:
In all rooms, image transmission is based on the Crestron DigitalMedia solution. All rooms have been equipped with an integrated control system for lighting, blinds and AV equipment, using touch panels and keyboards instead of traditional wall switches. The standard equipment includes an image presentation system and a sound system.
An investment in the new building and modern infrastructure brings measurable effects. This benefits both teachers and students, as they can work and study in comfortable conditions. The university’s profile has received a boost as well, which is reflected in university rankings (No. 2 in Poland in the ranking of the best private universities in the Education Conditions category, out of 70 schools ranked!).
This modernisation project improved the the image of the whole region, which can now advertise a modern university that keeps pace with the latest standards and positively stands out in an increasingly competitive environment.
Tools used in modern education need to be flexible and scalable to accommodate new trends and the needs of the students. We are pleased that we could contribute to development of the recognisable brand of the university and the region.
