University Lecture Theater

Customer: Chinese University of Hong Kong
Location: Hong Kong, China
Installer: Jeff Ng, system designer

Renovation of the Shaw College Lecture Theatre aimed at providing a useful lecture space, as well as a venue for conferences, seminars and cultural activities, targeting both professors and students. The biggest challenge was timing: the system integrator had three months to complete the project. The HDBaseT-enabled switcher was selected to distribute, control and manage the array of multimedia technology in the theater, performing flawless routing, switching and distribution of uncompressed digital and analog signals over a single cat cable to the seven displays, reducing cabling runs substantially. The system also allows control of the displays located outside the venue.
