Kickapoo High School Student Commons
Kickapoo High School, located in Springfield, Missouri, recently converted an open-air courtyard into a student commons area. The larger space allowed the school to add interactive collaboration stations and audio-visual presentation capabilities for enhanced student learning.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Room acoustics consultation
- Sound reinforcement system design
- Audio-visual system design
- On-site system commissioning including user training
The audio-visual system in the commons area includes a 20-foot diagonal video image projected onto a special paint treatment on one of the walls. The projector can be fed from several video inputs around the room, or wirelessly over the school’s wireless network.
There are four smaller collaboration stations along the periphery of the room. Each of these collaboration stations has a 70-inch diagonal touchscreen display with a built-in computer. These stations all include wireless presentation capabilities.
The sound system in the commons area has automatically mixed microphone inputs and a portable digital mixing console that can be connected at multiple locations. The system is controlled by a wireless touchpanel with a user-friendly interface designed by AVANT.
