Alter Hall is a model for the power of streaming video. Every lecture conducted in the seven-story building is streamed using Sonic Foundry Mediasite hardware and software. The auditorium, with its custom-built contoured screen, AMX control, LED lighting, and wireless connectivity, can narrowcast events throughout the facility. All classrooms are equipped with dual projection screens, a touch-panel monitor for electronic notation, Vaddio PTZ cameras for video capture, ambient ceiling mics, and podiums that adjust to the height of the instructor. Elsewhere, there's an awesome, 177-foot-wide, eight-color LED stock ticker.
