Classroom AV standards

All classrooms on our campuses are equipped with a lectern whose audio/visual system design conforms to one of the standards listed below.  Media Services strives to design audio/visual systems with the most current technology while simultaneously planning for the needs of the future.

Aside of each lectern is a step-by-step instruction guide for the lectern in the room.  If you would like training in the use of any of our A/V Lecterns, or would like assistance with using your materials with the equipment, please submit a Media Services Request Form, and we will schedule a technician to assist.

  • Type B - This standard includes a Resident PC, DVD/VHS player and connections for analog laptops as well as locating the controls to the inside of the lectern.  If you require the use of a Document Camera in a room with this design, please fill out a Media Services Request Form as one will need to be delivered prior to the start of your class.  Video from resident PC and other sources are projected onto a large 4:3 manual screen and program audio is amplified through ceiling speakers.

  • Type C - Along with wide screen projection, this standard includes a resident Document Camera, DVD/VHS player and introduced both analog and HDMI support for laptops, tablets and other digital devices.  Stereo program audio is amplified through two wall-mounted speakers on either side of the projection screen.  This standard also moved the controls to a control box atop the lectern.

  • Type C.2 - This standard modifies the Type C design by adding a second projector and screen, microphone audio for speech reinforcement, and includes a SMART podium interactive touch screen monitor.

  • Type D - This standard includes wide screen projection with enhanced image quality and program audio is amplified through two wall mounted speakers.  This standard marked the end of DVD/VHS players as part of QCC A/V design due to usage and market availability and is replaced with a BluRay/DVD player.  Other sources include PC, Document Camera and expanded Brign Your Own Device connectivity adding mini-DisplayPort connections for Apple device along with standard VGA and HDMI housed in cable management cubby atop the lectern. 

  • Type Q - Introduced in QCC’s Engineering Science and Technology building, this standard includes an enhanced image projected onto an electric wide screen and program audio is amplified through two wall mounted speakers.  This system also introduced a tabletop surface mounted touch screen for system control.  Sources include PC, Document Camera and auxilary analog and digital connections for Bring Your Own Device connectivity.

  • Type Q.1 - Introduced in QCC’s Engineering Science and Technology building, this standard includes ultra-short throw projected image onto a fixed wide screen designed with an erasable surface for dry erase.  Program audio is amplified through two wall mounted speakers.  This system also includes a tabletop surface mounted touch screen for system control.  Sources include PC, Document Camera and auxilary analog and digital connections for Bring Your Own Device connectivity.
