Many of our classrooms have been upgraded to include Crestron touch control panels, simplifying access to and control of presentation hardware located in the rack and consoles. These rooms provide media access to various audio and video sources as well as both rack mounted PC's and laptop computers. Network access is available for both computers. Imaging is accomplished via ceiling-hung high lumen output data projectors.
Other classrooms and seminar rooms have a lesser amount of presentation hardware, but generally include a rack computer, laptop computer connectivity, VHS / VCR and DVD players, as well as a ceiling-hung high lumen output data projector.
Fifteen of our classrooms include either a SmartBoard annotation board, or a PolyVision ENO annotation board.
Academic Media also supports facilities located in Slavin Center's '64 Hall, Smith Center Concert Hall, Black Box Theatre, Rehearsal room, and other non-classroom facilities located across the campus.
