DETROIT, MI-The College of Nursing on the campus of Wayne State University in Metropolitan Detroit recently turned to Integrated Design Solutions and Sound Engineering, both of Michigan, to revamp one of its key lecture halls, Cohn Auditorium. With the upgrade, university instructors now have the ability to educate using the newest technologies that enhance their ability to present and share information in an environment comparable to the high-tech work environments that nursing students will go on to work in.

At the heart of the hall's audio network is an AudiaFLEX processor by Biamp Systems, along with an Audia-EXPO expansion module for converting digital audio input via CobraNet to line-level analog audio outputs. A Polycom VSX 8000 facilitates the hall's videoconferencing capabilities. The audio and video functions are both easily controlled using a Crestron AV2 processor and a UPX2 touchpanel system that gives instructors in the room the ability to manipulate various presets that have been programmed, including audio only mode, presentation mode, videoconference mode, teleconference mode, and webcast mode.

To ensure that all conferencing audio in the hall was optimized, the AudiaFLEX is configured with six AEC2w cards for acoustic echo cancellation on each of the lecture hall's ceiling mounted microphones, preventing any output audio from the speakers from being re-transmitted to the far end via the ceiling microphones.
