Stanford University Adds Customized A/V Systems

Minnesota Western has fulfilled a $1.7 million contract for the design and installation of sophisticated audio-visual systems in two main auditoriums and over two dozen classrooms at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif.

The A/V systems feature "Smart Panels," which allow one to walk into a room, plug in the computer and begin presenting. There is no need for a technician to set up the equipment, according to Ruy Pereira, Minnesota Western's vice president.

The two auditoriums also contain multiple light valve projectors, rotating stages and advanced sound and lighting systems. Five people from the firm's Systems Integration Group worked onsite on the project from April through July. Minnesota Western, Berkeley, CA, (800) 999-8590.
