Challenge:-



Our company was tasked with AV System solutions for AUC. This type of installation provides an environment in which each lab has essentially identical functional capability and user interface, with big meeting room, video conference hall, Chairman Room and cafeteria. Additionally, the set-up allows the faculty to walk into any labs and use the system without the need for additional training. Although our teams regularly integrated this type of system for over the last several years, a new call-to-action presented itself during this project
