SITUATION

Instead of remodeling the existing W.R. Davies Student Center, which the students, faculty, and staff decided no longer met their needs, UWEC replaced it with a new 170,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Student Center. The challenge Audio Architects faced with this installation was providing professional audio to support over 11,500 student and business events per year, with easy zoning, room combining, complete digital signal processing and audio input/output control between all rooms, and make it user-friendly to boot.

SOLUTION

The integration team consisted of Shen Milsom & Wilke as the consultant and designer with Erik Geiger at the helm, and Audio Architects, led by Andy Pierson, as the installer. Geiger and Pierson chose Biamp Tesira as the only option for the high level of usability, flexibility, scalability, and control required by UWEC in this $2.7 million dollar installation. The Student Center features an AVB network, which supports background music (BGM) and live paging, and spans all floors, ballrooms, event/performance spaces, indoor and outdoor lounge areas.

CONCLUSIONS

The Tesira SERVER-IO provides UWEC with a single Ethernet-based DSP network that can accommodate large quantities of both analog and digital input/output. The ability to combine and separate audio and digital signal processing as needed are important functions for the university. Using Tesira, Shen Milsom & Wilke and Audio Architects enabled UWEC to meet the current and future needs of its students, staff, faculty, and business partners.
