Southeastern University: College of Arts & Media 2016
Posted on Dec 23, 2016 | Integration
Southeastern University recently chose MABE for its technical design and integration partner on the new College of Arts & Media building. This building houses choral practice halls as well as a recording hall, percussion practice hall, band/orchestra practice hall with recording capabilities, 2D/3D art classroom, piano lab, 13 media enhanced classrooms, and a large lecture hall. Aside from these rooms, there are two floors of dorm rooms, one floor of faculty offices, one floor of retail dining space, film/video editing rooms, music practice rooms, and more.
MABE was able to provide media-enhanced classrooms which featured motorized screens, HD video projectors, in-ceiling sound systems, Crestron Control Systems, and touch screens. These rooms are all networked and remotely monitored by the university’s Media Services Department. For the CAM building’s remaining classrooms MABE deployed the Martin CDD Series speakers and subs in the rooms specifically designated for music practice and playback classrooms.
The large lecture hall has a few unique pieces in its install which are new to the market. The first being the Martin O-Line Micro-Line Array. This very small line array brings a big punch to this large room while keeping the coverage very smooth and even from the front to the back of the room coupled with two flown subs, this gives the lecture hall more of a concert hall feel. MABE also brought Digital Projection to the project with their new Laser Highlite projector outputting 11,000 ansi Lumens onto the room’s 11’ x 20’ center-hung screen. This brought a very clean high output, high contrast projector to the project with low power needs, much less heat emission, and the ecofriendly need to rarely replace the lamps. This project is scheduled to be completed by the first part of January 2017.
