Transformation Tuesday – McArthur Squash Center

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Greetings from The AV Company!

Welcome to our tenth installment in our Transformation Tuesday series! This month, we’ll be taking a look at the McArthur Squash Center at the Boar’s Head Sports Complex! This state-of-the-art facility serves as the home base for the University of Virginia men’s and women’s squash teams. The center features eight singles courts, two doubles courts, and one glass-walled feature court with stadium seating for almost 400 spectators. We were asked to provide an integrated audiovisual system to allow the space to be more adaptable and easier to use.

We were able to transform the user experience of the facility using a variety of new tools! We implemented an iPad-controlled score-keeping system for referees. We installed monitors at each court, all controlled by local iPads that allow one to set up a timer for an exercise, pull up a YouTube video for reference, receive updates on upcoming events, et cetera! We also installed cameras in five of the courts and used the Crestron Capture HD Recorder to allow live streaming both online and to monitors around the facility.

September Update – Digital Annotation System

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

Greetings from The AV Company!

Things are picking up for us this month, and we are looking forward to a fantastic fall full of exciting projects! As things get busier, we are looking for ways to increase efficiency and make communication easier for our clients. One tool that we are excited to implement is our new digital annotation system! Using specialized wireless presentation tools from Crestron, Extron, and Mersive, we have devised a system that allows presenters to interact with their presentation material in real time – think of it as a digital whiteboard! This opens up lots of new opportunities for audience participation, annotation storage, and content sharing!

Our system utilizes Crestron AirMedia to share content, an Extron Annotator 300 that provides a wide range of annotation tools, and Mersive software that allows wireless connection between a wide range of devices. This system fosters collaboration and decision-making, and smooths out the process of presenting and discussing information.

Crestron, Apple and the AV Company- A Magical Combination

Monday, May 17th, 2010

Last week we posted a video from Control4 about using the iPad to control their system.  This week, we wanted to share another one from Crestron.  This video shows one of their employees actually using the iPad to control the temperature in the building and even in his wine cellar.  Check it out HERE.
