SUNY Stony Brook- Classroom Building 2 Renovation

Convergent Technologies was engaged directly by the University to provide Audiovisual Systems design services for a wide range of classroom types and advanced interactive learning facilities. CTDG’s scope of work included drafting of full Audiovisual Systems design drawings and CSI-format specifications, cost estimating, collaborative design review sessions with Stony Brook staff and faculty, on-site inspections of infrastructure, bidder proposal evaluation, contractor submittal review, and final acceptance. The Classroom Building 2 renovation included the addition of three Lecture Hall spaces, all of which were outfitted with full lecture capture / online streaming capability, featuring fixed in-room microphones and video cameras to capture instructor and student interactions for live distribution over internet protocol. All lecture halls were also outfitted with the ability to route presentation content and video to any other lecture hall or classrooms space for overflow viewing. An Active Learning Center was included in this design, consisting of 66 separate small group student stations designed to support groups of up to 3 students. Each student station was equipped with desktop document cameras, interactive annotation tablets, and dedicated computers with a network-based content sharing software which enabled an instructor to send assignments to individual stations for collaborative works sessions, and subsequently “collect” assignments digitally, or display them over the network on one of eight wall-mounted interactive touch-sensitive flat panel displays. Students will be able to work on assignments in small groups, or demonstrate solutions to the entire room using the wall-mounted flat panel displays. A video teleconference classroom was also included in the design package, to enable direct connection and interaction between students in the classroom and students in a similar classroom on a remote campus utilizing desktop microphones, in-room video cameras, and touch sensitive flat panel displays. A central video recording / streaming system was also specified to allow presentations in any classroom to be routed to a central location for digital recording and live streaming. This project was completed in 2013.
