Plainedge High School Innovative Learning Center

Adwar Video recently completed the design and installation of a unique multi-purpose AV system for Plainedge School District’s Innovative Learning Center. The ILC was envisioned as space that could support Board Meetings, Classroom Training, and Special Events for the school and the community. The requirements included sound and visual from multiple sources on multiple displays, along with a divisible configuration that allowed partitioning of the system within the space along with Cisco video conferencing. The challenge, as always, was to bring these requirements together into a system that was easy to use.

To meet those requirements, Adwar Video incorporated a Crestron control system featuring Smart Graphics interfaces on the touchpanels, (3) screened areas with NEC projectors, Crestron controllable thermostats, JBL ceiling speakers, Lectrosonics DSP’s, AKG wired and wireless microphones, and a Cisco video CODEC. A video matrix and two zoned ceiling speakers were programmed into the system to add to the functionality.

Additional equipment included Middle Atlantic racks, NEC NP-PX602WL-WH 6000 lumen projectors, Lectrosonics SPN2412 Digital Audio Processors, Crestron TST-600 Wireless Touch Screens and DM-MD16x16 DigitalMedia Switcher. Adwar Video worked closely with the Plainedge team to design the system to the customers strict requirements. All installation and programming was performed by Adwar Video’s internal technical staff.






Medgar Evers College Founders Auditorium

Adwar Video recently completed design and installation of a multi-faceted Audio Visual System for a premier presentation space.  The Founders Auditorium at Medgar Evers College in Downtown Brooklyn is an important dual-use instructional and performance venue for the school.  Lectures are given by day.  Plays and concerts are performed after hours.  The challenge was to provide a system that covered all of these roles while remaining easy to use.

To meet those requirements, Adwar Video created two complete EQ setup modes – “Live” and “Presentation”, with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound for the latter. A Dante Digital Interface was added to assist with networking between all input points and the master console.  System control was implemented through installation of a Crestron DM Matrix System along with Crestron Touch panels.  Extron Switchers, a BiAmp Server and an Allen & Heath iLive Console completed the system design.

Additional equipment such as a Marshall Custom Lectern, Microphones from Shure and Clock Audio, QSC Power Amps and Subs, and Middle Atlantic Hardware & Racks rounded out the major components of the project.
