Falmouth University Fox 4
Fox 4 Building is one of Falmouth University’s newest renovations and has seen its previous facade demolished in favour of a modern, glass fronted building that could host a range of activites. Situated on their smaller Falmouth Campus (as opposed to the larger Tremough Campus), the building is part of the University’s ongoing efforts to improve the facilities on offer to students and maintain their reputation as one of the world’s most technologically advanced places of education.
GV Multi-media’s Exeter team was commissioned to install an impressive array of equipment within the building’s 75-seat meeting room – marking the latest of numerous projects undertaken by GV over the years at Falmouth that included the Academy for Innovation and Research (AIR) and an AV overhaul at the Old Chapel in 2009. Work at Fox 4 involved the integration of equipment within what was previously a large lecture theatre. The installation includes Epson projection and an impressive full 7.1 surround sound system. The suite also features a custom fully integrated Top-Tec Voyager 2 Expert Duplex lectern that bears the university’s black and white colour scheme and new branding. The lectern includes a Crestron 5” TSW-550 touch screen, 24” SMART SP524 Podium interactive pen display, IPEVO VZ-1 HD visualiser. The lectern also featured a host of other equipment along with a Top-Tec Twin 16U rack lectern including a Denon DNA300 amplifier, Crestron control and scaling, an Extron 60-563-02 XPA 2004 amplifier, an Extron DMP-128 digital matrix processor, Sony BDP-51200 Blu-ray disc player and much more.
The most impressive element of the project is the building’s full 7.1 surround sound system to provide immersive audio for the presentation of cinema quality content. The building also features five integrated Unicol trolleys for breakout areas that include LG 47LB730 47” smart TVs and AN-VC500 smart TV cameras. The building also features Samsung SMED55D displays and ONELAN digital signage players.
