A project based in the University’s science building has made it to the final of the 2017 InAVation Awards’ Education category.
The project, which was produced in cooperation with audiovisual specialists Reflex and Hewshott International, provides those who work in the science building with the ability to display videos and audio across the building’s 90 screens, either one at a time or all at once.
It will be one of eight audiovisual systems across the world in contention for an InAVation award in the education category, including two from Russia and one from Denmark, the other five finalists being based here in the UK.
The awards will be presented on the 7th February in Amsterdam, in conjunction with Infocomm ISE.
Solution Architect in AV & Digital Media at the university, Adam Harvey, was keen to express his delight at the news.
“I’m really pleased our Science Building project has been announced as a Finalist in the Education Project Category of the InAVation Awards.
“This was our first large scale AV over IP solution and has enabled us to send any video or audio source to any display across the entire building.
“We had a great project team made up of both internal, and external, experts in their field and we have ended up with an outstanding installation in a landmark building.”
The audiovisual project in the science building here at the university has been referred to as a key component of the university’s 2020 vision, just like the science building itself had been when its construction was completed in time for the start of this academic year.
