IAS Rubenstein Commons – Princeton, NJ

IAS Rubenstein Commons

DFX’s finished install at The Institute for Advanced Study Rubenstein Commons in Princeton, NJ.

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) in Princeton, NJ is one of the world’s leading center’s for curiosity-driven basic research. Past faculty have included Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer. Since 1930, it has served as a model for protecting and promoting independent inquiry, prompting the establishment of similar institutes around the world.

IAS has been a long-time client of DFX. We’ve helped facilitate the implementation of audio and video technology throughout several locations on campus. Most recently we provided all of the a/v for the new addition of Rubenstein Commons. This space will support community and academic life on the IAS campus by promoting communication and collaboration with a variety of social spaces and meeting rooms. Conceived as a “social condenser,” the building provides a communal and flexible gathering place for the Institute’s research community across all four Schools—Historical Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Science.

Our systems integration team can handle every step of the process for any audio, video, or lighting project your school has in mind. From classrooms and lecture halls to auditoriums and stadiums, we are here to elevate your students’ learning experiences with innovative education technology solutions.

IAS Wolfensohn Hall – Princeton, NJ

IAS Wolfensohn Hall - Princeton, NJ

Upgrading a lecture and performance hall with modern audiovisual integrations:

To update Wolfensohn Hall’s audio capabilities, we upgraded their console from a traditional analog board to a more advanced Soundcraft Performer 2, complete with a digital stage box.

For broadcasting and video conferencing, we integrated a Vaddio PTZ camera and their local PC into their Blackmagic switcher. An 86 inch LG TV was installed in the rear of the hall for use as a confidence monitor or to display the other end of video calls. We installed a P300 processor and three sleek Shure MXA910 microphone arrays over the seating area to pick up audience questions and reactions during presentations and performances.

Mercer County Community College

Mercer County Community College - West Windsor, NJ

DFX was recently called upon to help Mercer County Community College in West Windsor NJ provide live streaming capabilities for 34 locations throughout the campus.

We chose to lead with PTZOptics PT30X-NDI broadcast camera for the ability to output 1080p via NDI IP protocol, which provides low latency access to audio and video devices anywhere on the network. Some of locations that received these cameras are the Baseball/Softball/Soccer fields, The Kelsey Theater, the gymnasium, the Conference Center, and the Ornamental Horticulture Greenhouse.

We also provided some custom camera mounts for the more challenging outdoor locations. Viewers can access the live stream via IP address and experience high definition video and audio from the safety and comfort of their home.

An Innovative Take On Virtual Meetings and Conference Calls

In response to the pandemic, the Institute for Advanced Study asked us to transform one of their dining halls into a virtual meeting space.

Our team designed and fabricated a custom cart to hold four large displays, a sound system, and a camera. The camera can pan, tilt, and zoom to view any seat in the room. 

We also added over a dozen microphones to tables with feedback control, ensuring that all attendees can be heard during video calls. Any seat is an ideal place to present from!
