CUNY NYCCT New Academic Building

FJ Sciame, as Construction Manager for the City University Construction Fund, solicited the services of an AV Installation and Integration company for the CUNY NYCCT New Academic Building at 285 Jay Street in NYC. After a lengthy vetting process, Adwar Video was selected as the AV Integrator.

This multi-million dollar contract consisted of 59 AV rooms and 38 Digital Signage rooms with diverse spaces such as Large MPR, Dental Clinic room, Radiologic X-Ray Classroom, SIMS Lab, Seminar Lab, and others.

The Large Multipurpose Room of 105 seats incorporated Crestron control and Crestron DM video switching with Pro3 processor and 10″ touchpanels. The DM 8×8 matrix with multiple floor boxes allowed for the instructor’s lectern to be located in different room configurations. A Crestron AirMedia for BYOD connections was included. Dual Epson 6000 laser projectors were used for room visual displays. Audio consisted of Clockaudio instructor mics, Shure wireless for audience, BiAmp DSPs, Lab Gruppen amplifiers, Extron surface mount speakers, and JBL ceiling speakers. A Listen Technologies Assisted Listening system was installed for ADA compliance. The video components included a Cisco SX80 video conferencing codec with Vaddio PTX cameras, and 18 Audix ceiling mics.

The project was completed as scheduled and within budget. Additional work was requested and provided.
