How a higher education organization solved their auditorium audio acoustic issues. - Creation Networks

Creation Networks worked with a higher education organization with a large auditorium used for various events, including lectures, presentations, and conferences. However, they faced significant challenges when it came to providing high-quality audio and visual experiences for attendees.

The first issue that the organization encountered was the acoustics of the room. Due to its large size and complex shape, the sound tended to bounce around and create echoes, making it difficult for presenters to be heard clearly. The room was often filled with many people, further compounding the issue.

The organization tried various solutions to address the acoustic challenges of the room, including using different types of microphones, speakers, and acoustic treatments. However, they found that these solutions could have been more effective, and they continued receiving complaints from attendees about the poor sound quality.

The second issue that the organization faced was the quality of the visual presentations. They had a projector and screen installed in the room, but they found that the images were often washed out or blurry, particularly in bright lighting conditions.

The organization tried different projectors and screens to address this issue, but they needed help finding a solution that provided consistently high-quality images.

The organization's IT team tried to troubleshoot the issues on their own. Still, they realized they needed to bring in experts in the audio-visual industry to help them develop a custom solution.

After researching several companies, the organization found Creation Networks, a team of audio-visual experts specializing in designing solutions for large auditoriums. The experts conducted a detailed analysis of the room's acoustics and lighting conditions and developed a customized solution that addressed the specific pain points of the organization.

The solution that Creation Networks developed was based on several key components.

First, the experts installed high-quality directional Shure MXA920 microphones that were specifically designed to eliminate background noise and feedback. These microphones were placed strategically throughout the room to ensure that presenters could be heard clearly, no matter where they stood.

Second, Creation Networks installed a state-of-the-art sound processing system from Biamp that enhanced the clarity and balance of the sound throughout the room. The system used advanced algorithms to filter out unwanted background noise and echoes and to ensure that the sound was evenly distributed across the room.

Third, the Creation Networks experts installed a high-resolution Christie projector and screen designed to provide clear and vivid images, even in bright lighting conditions. The projector used advanced technology to adjust to changes in lighting conditions and to ensure that the images remained sharp and focused.

Finally, Creation Networks provided extensive training to the organization's staff and faculty to ensure they could easily use the equipment. They also developed a simple interface that allowed users to control the equipment quickly, no matter their level of technical expertise.

Thanks to this customized solution, the organization achieved its goal of delivering high-quality presentations and events in its auditorium. Attendees were impressed with the clear and crisp sound and the vivid images projected on the screen.

In conclusion, the higher education organization faced significant obstacles when providing high-quality audio and visual experiences for its attendees in its large auditorium. However, the organization overcame these challenges by partnering with experts at Creation Networks in the audio-visual industry and developing a custom solution. It provided an exceptional experience for its staff, faculty, and students.
