The newly-constructed Translational Research Building is home to 100 principal researchers and 900 staff. Every aspect of the building meant to foster connection and collaboration with others on campus as well as around the world.

Setting the pace for the building’s AV systems is the impressive lobby video wall in the lobby, consisting of 182 digital video cubes, digitally steerable column loudspeakers, and subwoofers incorporated into one structure.

The scope of AV technology extends beyond the video wall to the building’s 240 seat auditorium and conference, meeting and training rooms which provides users with extensive ability to connect and share content within the building and with other properties on- and off-campus. The client’s main goal was to have consistent technology across all rooms, so they all function in the same way and can be self run, or with the assistance of a technician.
