University of Maryland Typical Classroom
RCI Systems has installed many of the University classroom audiovisual systems. The University’s Typical AV Installation which includes an LCD projector, projection screen, a computer (UFI), a program audio system, an auxiliary input panel, a powered USB hub, a UPS, ceiling mics, PTZ camera, a multi-format switcher/scaler, and a Crestron system controller.
These rooms often receive auxiliary PC, audio, and mic inputs via a wall plate, an Extron AV Trac system, or an input panel in the rack or teaching station. Some include s UFI video teleconferencing (VTC) system integrated with the classroom system.
The camera and ceiling mics provide class capture capability. The configuration includes the camera mounted at the rear of the room with a clear sightline to the front of the room and the ceiling-mounted mics dispersed so that class discussion can be recorded as well as the instructor.
The multi-format Typical Installation uses a scaler/switcher to scale all inputs appropriate to the projector and output all video to the projector via HDMI.
Most systems include a 14RU equipment rack with a finished top and a flip-up shelf on each side. Other equipment located in this rack usually includes the UFI computer, VGA DA, multi-format switcher, UPS, and auxiliary input panel. Cables going to and from this rack are neatly bundled in a cable ‘snake’ which is typically 6’ – 10’ long from rack to wall.
