The University of Arizona, Health Science Innovation Building - Level 3 Audiovisual

The University of Arizona, Health Science Innovation Building

A Higher Education Campus Install

Project Scope

The 9-story tower known as the Health Sciences Innovation Building (HSIB) at the University of Arizona, Tucson provides classroom systems supporting Zoom conferencing and Panopto recording, a multipurpose presentation and performing arts center, dozens of meeting and huddle spaces, a medical simulation center with recording and debriefing, filming studio and a centralized broadcast booth. What makes the  AV system at HSIB so unique is the fact that the entire 9 story building functions as a single system, allowing any signal to be distributed and routed anywhere in the building. The campus systems rely on a robust and dedicated infrastructure of fiber optic cabling and leverages 10-gigabit networks to connect and manage everything. The end users are positioned to tackle any request thrown at them from an event perspective and can record and stream content from basic lecture capture to a professionally produced event on broadcast switchers and production equipment.

Our Solutions

This project site of a 9-story newly constructed tower consisting of:

  • A performing arts and multi-purpose space called the “Forum”.
  • Roughly 17 classrooms ranging from 20 person to 150 person.
  • A 30-room standard patient examination training floor.
  • A medical simulation “black box” venue for simulating large events and scenarios, including hospital rooms like OR, labor and delivery, Trauma, etc.
  • Administrative work space and conference rooms.
  • Roughly 70 meeting rooms, debriefing rooms and huddle rooms.
  • Centralized broadcast control room interconnected to all AV systems.
  • Filming studio for recording and streaming content produced in house.
  • Simulation control room for monitoring and controlling various simulations across 2 floors.
  • We collaborated with the University office of Planning, Design and Construction, various  stakeholders from a number of colleges, Biomedical TV production team, the general contractor and other related trades.
  • The project length will run from roughly Jan 2018 – June 2019.
  • The major challenge was to create an audiovisual system that installed and operated as a single system. Every audio and video signal needed to be accessible from the broadcast  control room for lecture capture, VTC, recording, streaming and centralized control.
