requirements at National Association of Realtors
One of the special
requirements of the AV system design was that anyone participating in
a meeting could plug in a laptop and make a presentation from anywhere
at the conference table-and that the person controlling the system could
be seated anywhere at the table. With that idea in mind, United worked
with the builders of the table to include seven panels to facilitate
connections from a laptop or the TiltScreen.
Shown above is a closeup
of one of these connectors with a laptop plugged in. Each has dual AC
outlets, an input for the Extron switching system, an output for a local
monitor (NAR on occasion will bring in a desktop workstation), an input
for the company LAN, a modem input and an input for the AMX TiltScreen.
requirement of the users of this boardroom is to show computer or video
images side by side, so that meeting participants can view and consider
both at the same time.
United recommended two Sony
XGA-resolution plasma displays fed by the same video and computer sources
used by the projection system and controlled by the Color TiltScreen.
