Baruch College Vertical Campus Lecture Spaces

Eight Floor Multiple Campus AV Systems

Adwar Video recently completed the build and installation of multiple AV systems on eight floors of the prestigious Vertical Campus of Baruch University.  Key to the design was the Extron Medialink control panels that provided uniform control interfaces in all lecture spaces.  “Our instructors can walk into any of our spaces and immediately begin work” says Christian Keck, Deputy CIO.

Outfitted with cutting-edge digital audio and video equipment, the core of the systems are the Extron MLS608 switchers, controlled by Extron Touchlink Panels.  John Schappert, System Sales Engineer for Adwar Video, states “The MLS608 switcher is uniquely suited to handle new digital signals as well as legacy inputs.  The system had to be easy to use, and Extron Touchlink made that possible.  Additionally, the challenge at Baruch was bringing over 100 rooms on-line quickly, often while school was in-session.  Careful coordination was maintained by Tony Caggino, Account Manager, at every step to meet the customer’s requirements.  Plus, Extron worked with our team to assure delivery timeframes and overall success.“
