Colleagues and Friends,

 

I have been  given the priviledge of specifying the technology that will go into our redesigned Board (Executive Meeting) Room.  I am soliciting pictures, ideas of rooms which you have seen on your campus or others, which make appropriate use of technology.

 

In my opinion, a Technology Enabled Board Room would include most, if not all, of the following:

·        Wireless Access

·        Digital displays (projected probably, since we will need 100-120” diagonal)

·        Video Conferencing capabilities (Camera, probably PTZ)

·        Telephone enabled

·        Microphones at each station, integrated with the phone system.

 

I don’t know about the following

·        Desktop computers and monitors at each station?

·        Ability to Board Participants to show their monitor on the screen.

 

 

Other ideas?

DP,

You might want to look at the Apple TV option. 


We have been testing the Crestron AirMedia device for both classrooms and meeting rooms for sharing BYOD devices. Thus far, we are really pleased with it.

How did you make out with video originating from the mobile device?  We tried one also and had good results with everything except streaming video from a tablet to the projector. Video was very choppy.

We put our room together about 12 years ago and are now doing a refresh.  I would be happy to talk with you offline if you would like.  Email me at hulveydb@jmu.edu.

Our Trustees are also asking for power outlets at each seat. The room in which our Trustees meet has a good sound system for presentations and such, but not for meetings. Our microphones also have a speaker.

Voting system?

We put a 95" display in the President's conference room when his office was remodeled this summer which is spectacular and wasn't overly expensive.

Video streaming works well with iPad and Windows(Air Parrot app required)  laptops. We have streamed video over our Meraki access points in many classroom simultaneously without any wait or buffer or display anomalies. Here the tech solution we have deployed in our network:

Enabled Bonjour Gateway for Air Play

Bonjour forwarding can be used to forward Bonjour requests from clients on this SSID to VLANs that are hosting Bonjour services such as Airplay




Instead of an Apple TV consider AirServer for a built-in room PC. http://www.airserver.com/

We did some upgrades to our Board room over the summer.  Some key components include:

 

·         90" LED monitor

·         46" LED monitor

·         Wireless mic's for each board member

·         Room mic for conference calls

·         Laptop connection at podium both HDMI and VGA for presenters

·         Video Conference equipment with 2 PTZ cameras

·         Digital Voice recorder

·         9" Touch Panel to switch inputs and control audio

·         Zoned speaker system

 

Everything runs through a Crestron DMPS-300 which serves as our AV processor and switcher.
