Case Story: Demo Center for Pharmacy Benefit Company

The Catamaran pharmacy benefit company in Chicago recently branched out to a downtown building where it gives guests a firsthand experience of its offerings. The Catamaran case story at the AVI-SPL site includes a video in which our engineers and the project architects discuss the benefits of the video walls and interactive displays.

In this video, you’ll see the systems we integrated from manufacturers like Crestron (for AV control), Biamp (audio distribution), Christie (video walls), and NEC (video displays). Others, not mentioned in the video, but critical to giving the client what it wanted, include the LifeSize video conferencing that powers the Caméléon Telepresence system, and the endpoints in three conference rooms, and the Tannoy speakers that provide sound distribution in conference rooms and the lobby area.

Equipping the Hunt Library at N.C. State for Sound and Signal Distribution

North Carolina State Hunt LibraryFor the massive audio visual install at North Carolina State’s James B. Hunt Jr. Library, AVI-SPL installed solutions including video conferencing, interactive video walls, digital signage, kiosks, touch panels, cameras, projectors, video displays and advanced sound systems. To pull many of these components together, our engineers used Belden cables throughout the facility.

Tannoy speakers are also prevalent throughout the install. Our engineers went with Tannoy for multiple meeting rooms, and 32 pendant speakers for the Creative Studio. The pendant speaker solution was necessary because of the room’s open ceiling.

Project Spotlight: Tannoy speakers, Sony HD Camera and Contemporary Research

At AVI-SPL we like to take the opportunity to single out some of the valued manufacturers we rely on to bring our clients the quality solutions they expect. In a recently completed project for the Pennsylvania performance center ArtsQuest at SteelStacks, AVI-SPL employed Tannoy, Sony and Contemporary Research products.

Tannoy speakers throughout the public spaces handle foreground music and paging. AVI-SPL engineers say they were selected for their efficiency, audio bandwidth, coverage consistency, sound quality and aesthetic fit with the architecture.

Sony HD Cam complements the NEC Digital Cinema projectors in the two theaters that comprise the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinema.  HD-SDI video from the deck is fed into a processor to de-embed encoded digital audio in the AES/EBU format. Audio is routed to the Dolby Cinema processors where it is decoded and converted to left, center, right and surround channels for amplifiers.  The HD-SDI video component is then sent to the projectors.

Contemporary Research Encoder/Modulators distribute video content from  AMX digital video player/servers. They are also available to send feeds from the Musikfest Cafe video camera and other sources.

Watch a brief video overview of how AVI-SPL turned ArtsQuest at SteelStacks into a state-of-the-art performance center.
