Classroom technology in all 231 registrar classrooms across the Charles River Campus was upgraded to improve and standardize projection and presentation media equipment, room lighting controls, and stereo audio systems. This work was done in three phases, during the summers of 2010-2012, as part of a comprehensive rollout of current educational media standards. AV Engineering installed Level 2 Classroom Technology Standard AV packages in each of these classrooms. Information Level 2 classrooms feature fixed access to network resources, projection equipment, presentation media equipment, and wired and wireless network access. The permanent systems consist of ceiling-mounted 1280 x 800 definition projectors, manual screens, stereo speakers, wall connections with HDMI, VGA, Component (all with Audio), and wall-mounted LCD touch screen control panels. Classrooms will also receive cabinet racks with a DVD/VCR combo unit, cable drawer, plus a second set of rack connections consisting of HDMI, VGA, Video, and backup VGA. Each of three language classrooms will receive a wall-mounted flat screen TV, control panel, and input plate for HDMI, VGA with Audio, and Video with Audio.
