From LCD Displays to Streamlined Control, FAU Recreation Center Gets High Tech!

Located in Boca Raton, Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Recreation and Fitness Center is a premier, $18.6 million facility that would provide not only the latest in top notch training equipment, but build a total audiovisual package into the experience.

With over 70 pieces of state-of-the art equipment to choose from, it would soon be easy for workout enthusiasts to catch up on the latest games, campus news and more.

The entertainment setup includes a 52″ Sharp LCD display in the middle, accompanied by a Sharp 46″ LCD on either side. With the flat panels clustered in five groups of three, fitness goers have the perfect viewing angle, no matter their location.

TV feeds have been brought directly into the sound system, allowing the staff to truly amplify the audio during home games. The audio is also connected to the fire alarm and PA, paving the way for clear communications and coverage of critical announcements.

Dual 8″ full range JBL speakers and subwoofers are supported by Chief wall mounts, and run along the entire length of the room. Biamp power amplifiers help boost the signal’s quality and clarity. Between the main workout room and the weights room, 42 JBL ceiling-mounted speakers are used to meet the client’s needs for superior sound performance. The audio’s reach is augmented by the use of the 15 JBLs dispersed throughout the hallways.

The main server room features a Crestron PRO2 central processor, offering dual control at the rack with an iPod docking station, or through the Crestron TMPC-8X 8″ wireless touch panel. Staff can quickly control their audio and video content through their HD direct receivers, which rely on a BlonderTongue modulator for control of the video signals.
