Lecture Hall*

As a value-add distributor, Midwich strives to bring you useful and practical information such as this Lecture Hall Design Guide.

The various stages of lockdown, may provide unique opportunities to upgrade facilities within the Events, Government or Education sectors.

This design is intended to utilise proven, high bandwidth, switching and transportation technology to facilitate simple dissemination of ideas and information, electronically, within a lecture-type environment. Take a look to discover whether it may help you stimulate new business during these challenging times.

Our Goals:

  • Provide a flexible, multi-purpose space that may be subdivided and used as an information delivery space as well as an active learning space
  • Audience capacity 30-100 individuals
  • Cater to B.Y.O.D (bring your own device) requirements. (unknown source types, both wired and wireless)
  • Provide configurable audio system satisfying both front of house audio and voice reinforcement
  • Accommodate source devices - for today and tomorrow - through the connectivity choices
  • Flexibility to distribute Video and Audio, on campus or wider area
  • Deliver flexibility to distribute video and audio on campus or to a wider area
  • Provide for recording, remote participation and VC
  • Display capability for up to UHD HDR video plus multi-channel audio to several screens and locations within the hall
  • Ensure security of all data including voice, vision and meta

Use Case:

Lecture spaces are designed for lecture or Front of House style presentations usually based around a lectern or presenters desk.

A presenter could make use of a desk with a document camera and either wired or wireless screen sharing capability to send support material to any display and the audio system within the room. Additionally, all AV signals can be routed to recording and lecture capture devices or sent to additional break out spaces either on campus or externally in any convenient format. (HDbaseT, AVoIP, IPTV etc)

The Atlona AT-OPUS-68M Matrix Switcher at the heart of the AV system is capable of taking up to six 4K HDR (up to UHD@60 4:4:4 ) signals (18Gbps data rate) and flexibly routing them to six HDBaseT outputs along with two HDMI outputs.

The Opus switcher is compatible with the Atlona AT-OPUS-RX receiver for transmission of HDMI, ethernet pass-through, and bidirectional IR and RS-232 control signals up to 100 meters over CAT6a/7 cable, thus catering to both local and distant display requirements.

Local display could be via a confidence monitor mounted in the presenter’s desk or podium whereas distant displays could be a large projected image displaying presentation material with additional support screens either side.

Presentation of visual content could be accompanied by 5.1 audio if required, or down-mixed to 2 channels for recording, streaming and sharing. The switcher is equipped with a flexible, independent audio matrix switcher for routing de-embedded HDMI input audio, TOSLINK and analogue stereo audio sources.

Freedom to route video and audio signals independently and to break out analogue or digital audio signals, allows for comprehensive management and control.

Video conferencing over dedicated hardware or via soft codecs, can be facilitated by routing signals directly through the matrix switcher or pre switched via the Atlona AT-OME-MS52W wireless screen sharing switcher.

Independent audio processing allows for microphones and line level sources to be processed discreetly to ensure performance is not compromised.

The use of breakout spaces and or remote streaming should only be undertaken when sufficient security analysis has been carried out to ensure any privacy issues are addressed. Technologies such as Haivision’s SRT real time streaming protocol, provides end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment based on real-time network conditions.
