Video Basics (1 credit)
Technology is changing rapidly, and the way in which the technology is implemented is critical to the user experience. Lobby areas are no longer just an entrance into a building but an environment to showcase the clients brand; conference rooms, huddle rooms and training centers need to be designed to effectively communicate information both visually and audibly without fatigue and stress. Video plays a crucial role in these scenarios, and in this seminar you’ll learn:

  • How the human eye works
  • What video terminology you should be familiar with, and how each affects the viewer
  • How video impacts the visual stress of viewers
  • How the relationship between resolution and viewing distance should influence screen size and placement

  • Which wiring infrastructures are approved for use in an ECS
  • The three critical terms every ECS must address, and what they mean
  • What the different layers of ECS are and how each can be used
  • How architecture influences the Sound Transmission Index, and why STI is important
