TU Berlin: AVB network for live-streaming with highest image and sound quality
Latest technology for modern teaching methods in a listed building
Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin) is one of the most prestigious educational institutions in Europe. It is one of the 20 largest universities in Germany and one of the oldest technical universities in the country. In order to keep pace with students’ expectations and to support modern pedagogical practices in the best possible way, TU Berlin equipped two of its lecture halls in the listed main building with modernized AV systems between 2016 and 2018.
- AVB network for live streaming: The AVB solution chosen enabled, among other things, the connection of the lecture halls H104, H105 “Audimax” and the atrium. This enables, among other things, an almost latency-free streaming of seminar events between the rooms. In addition, the lecture hall H104 with a capacity of 644 students is now the first educational auditorium in the world to operate a fully convergent audio/video network
- Highest image quality for projections: Additionally, the double projection in the lecture hall was renewed. Here, the TU Berlin demanded the highest image quality with maximum longevity. The high-performance projectors required for this, however, caused problems with the Ordinance for the Protection of Employees against Hazards from Artificial Optical Radiation (OStrV), which had to be solved by macom experts.
macom accompanied the project for two years, from the design phase to the final acceptance (HOAI LP 2-8). During the planning process, macom analysed the customer’s needs and identified several different approaches to distribution, from HDBaseT to KVM and AVB/TSN. The time frame for the implementation was very short due to the restriction of the work to the semester breaks, but thanks to macom project management it could be kept to.
