University of Wisconsin – Whitewater
Completed in 1962 but now extensively remodeled, Upham Hall is used mainly by the biology, chemistry and physics departments at UW-Whitewater.
Lewis Sound & Video install new AV systems in a large lab/lecture hall and four classrooms. The largest system, in Room 142E, includes:
- Side by side Sanyo multimedia projectors used to show closeup images of lab demonstrations plus computer information and simulations.
- Two Sony 3-chip pan-tilt-zoom cameras used for lab demonstrations. Each can zoom in on a chemistry experiment or biology demo to show detailed close up images to the class.
- A ceiling-mounted Sony 3-chip camera aimed directly down on the demonstration table.
- An Elmo document camera.
- Two wireless lavaliers plus handheld, podium and hanging microphones.
- Windows and Macintosh computers built into the podium.
- A laptop input for the instructor.
- Crestron touchpanel controls of cameras, projectors, DVD player, and room lighting.
- Sanyo’s PJ Net Organizer system to allow maintenance and support of all Upham Hall projectors via the building’s computer network.
