Extron AV Switching, Streaming, and Sound Systems Augment Lab Studies at VinUniversity – rAVe [PUBS]

The non-profit VinUniversity in Gia Lam District, Hanoi, Vietnam, is dedicated to educating and developing the talents and skills of Vietnamese youth and providing career paths in the country. Campus buildings include lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, meeting and multipurpose rooms, a medical simulation center, and a technologically enhanced library.

The university uses new training methods and technologies to help students learn to be proactive in mastering teamwork and soft skills in various career paths. Rooms and spaces incorporate high-performance AV signal switching and streaming capabilities, robust audio systems, and user-friendly control. The integration company Hoang Minh Investment Technology Joint-stock Company installed Extron products to meet the various requirements of VinUniversity.

“We did our best to give VinUniversity the best solution in terms of functionality and cost,” says Nguyen Truong Giang, Vice Director of Hoang Minh Investment Technology JSC. “By working closely with administration, faculty, and staff, we have been able to create AV systems with Extron products that are both fully functional and comfortable for university users to use.”

Building G at VinUniversity houses several state-of-the-art labs, support rooms, and meeting spaces. The three floors of laboratories support a range of studies, from engineering and robotics to anatomy and chemistry. Two of the largest are super labs, each with a large number of screens and an independent Extron AV matrix switching and distribution system. AV systems include the XTP II CrossPoint 1600 modular matrix switcher or a DXP HD 4K PLUS 16×8 matrix switcher and expansion over DTP, depending on room needs. Extron ShareLink Pro 500 Collaboration Gateways facilitate wireless connectivity for instructor and staff from anywhere in the lab.

An Extron DMP 128 Plus audio processor is at the heart of every audio system to address acoustic concerns in highly reflective surfaces in the lab. The ProDSP processor supports the mixing of live instruction and workstation microphones with program audio and ensures clear sound for both streamed and archived recordings. SME 211 encoders stream content that can include different resolutions and bitrates. The encoders also provide independent flow control, improving system flexibility.

Extron XTP, DXP, DTP, and audio systems provide all the features and capabilities needed while staying within the lab’s budget for initial expenses and planned maintenance.
