Scope: Concept AV were responsible for the full AV fit-out of the new purpose-built Arts Precinct at Macquarie University. Designed to promote the faculty’s strength, collaborative and creative work, the new precinct includes a number of spaces that both showcases works and is the academic core of the faculty. Such spaces include a History Museum, Digital Lab, Collaborative spaces, recording studios, and flexible spaces for events such as conferences and seminars.
The Macquarie University History museum was designed to bring together ancient and modern collections that are relevant and interlinked with research and learning curriculums within the university. Including both fixed and flexible exhibition spaces, this space featured a variety of AV equipment.
Most notably, Concept AV installed two Samsung 55’’ Interactive Table Touch Displays. These displays have advanced capacitive touch technology that enables up to 10 different touch points simultaneously. Further to these table touch displays, six ELO 15.6’’ Interactive Displays were mounted on short pole mounts within custom joinery.
From an audio perspective, this space houses an extensive background audio system. Concept AV mounted 56 Sonance ceiling pendant mount loudspeakers, providing general audio to the exhibition. 26 Secret Sound Glass Mount Loudspeakers were also discreetly mounted in exhibit showcases panes of glass. These speakers enable each pane of glass to receive a different audio file, ultimately enabling specific content for each individual showcase exhibit within the space. Similarly, 2 Secret Sound wood mount loudspeakers were installed to receive the audio relevant to the interactive touch displays.
A key project highlight was the installation of an impressive cutting-edge custom designed LED Wall. This stretched over 14m, a truly eye-catching feature of the arts precinct.
