Coherent Design was tasked with refreshing the audiovisual and control systems at The William S. Boyd School of Law at The University of Nevada Las Vegas. The refresh was a complete overhaul of nine classrooms as well as conference and meeting rooms for this ten year old facility. Coherent utilized a centralized digital media platform delivering multiple HDTV streams to each room in the facility. Projectors, flat panel displays, and a sophisticated control system allow professors to easily present video to students from various sources including document cameras, laptops, stored video, lecture capture, and high definition cameras. Large teaching stations with integrated height control as well as ergonomic displays make teaching with the use of high technology quite simple. The lecture capture system allows students to review past lectures by logging on to the Law School site to view and listen to past classes.
The newest addition to the University System in Nevada is Nevada State College in Henderson Nevada, situated on nearly 600 acres in the foothills of the Las Vegas Valley is this new campus. Nevada State College is a growing addition to Nevada’s higher education system.
Coherent Design was honored to have been chosen to design the audiovisual technology systems for NSC’s first two dedicated education and administration buildings. Coherent Design worked closely with NSC to develop a master plan for the classroom technology systems. HDTV, LCD touch control of all major functions of the first 36 classrooms and leading edge web based lecture capture systems round out the leading edge classrooms. The facilities also include a 200 seat lecture hall with oversized HDTV projection system and similar high technology features of the classrooms. Multiple conference rooms, a large multipurpose banquet and meeting hall, and even a cadaver lab with HDTV production capabilities will take Nevada State College into the future.
