The design of the University Center weaves mountain modern elements and upscale touches with abundant natural light to create bright and airy spaces. The 7,000-square-foot space includes four flexible rooms that are fully equipped with the latest audio visual technology, including interactive displays, laser projectors, and motion sensing cameras. The building also has a fully integrated executive conference room and an outdoor courtyard that can serve as a hosting area for special events.

Challenges

The renovation involved extensive remodels to the structure, and many high-tech additions and upgrades, including cutting-edge audiovisual amenities. These make the LTCC Lisa Maloff University Center a one-stop hub for learning, teaching, research, collaboration, and experimentation. AV-enabled spaces added during the 2021 upgrade include the ELC, a collaborative space for data science, visualization, and analytics. Also included in the renovation are more class rooms, more learning labs, and more presentation spaces to augment the library’s existing complement of such spaces. Crestron AV video switching, distribution and control is crucial to the operation of all these spaces.

Design Solution

The in-house AV technology team at LTCC made a strategic decision to implement Crestron AV video and audio switching, distribution, and control in the Lisa Maloff University Center partly because they had already used Creation Networks to manage their deployment of systems in many of the school’s other learning venues.
