Weeks Hall

University of Wisconsin – Madison

Originally built in 1974, Weeks Hall houses the UW-Madison Department of Geology and Geophysics’ classrooms, library and research facilities.

A major addition included a new lecture hall with audio and video systems by Lewis Sound & Video. The installation includes:

  • Side by side Sanyo projectors with long-throw lenses in a projection booth at the back of the room.
  • Dual document cameras: a Wolfvision tabletop unit and a ClearOne ceiling-mounted camera.
  • Audio Technica microphones hung from the ceiling, which pick up and reinforce instructors’ voices from anywhere in the front of the room.
  • Interfacing for a dedicated computer in the podium plus laptop.
  • A front-throw projection booth (located in the rear of the room) housing the projectors and sound and video source equipment.
  • Crestron operating controls with a 15″ touch panel located at the podium and a 12″ panel in the projection room. Each controls all AV and lighting systems and includes a preview screen for the instructor.
  • Crestron wireless mouse with laser pointer.
