National University of Science and Technology (NUST) MISIS is one of the most dynamically developing scientific and educational centers in Russia. NUST MISIS is one of the leading centers of technological education in Russia and at the same time a full-fledged scientific center. Founded in 1918, the university has 9 institutes and 4 branches: three in Russia and one abroad. More than 15,000 students study at NUST MISIS.
For comfortable work in the rooms of the Council of Professors, it was necessary to create a modern multimedia environment. The main requirements for the audiovisual complex to be created were the preservation of the representative component and functionality.
The heart of the audiovisual complex of the Council of Professors is a Smart Сollaboration Desk specially developed by Delight 2000 specialists, which combines individual screens, video cameras, microphones and speakers in a round table meeting, controlled by a touch screen panel according to pre-programmed scripts. When not in use, the device is completely invisible and does not interfere with the design of the room.
The main visualization tool for the faculty meeting are the CONVERS FLEX 220 retractable monitors installed in the Smart Collaboration Desk. The LCD monitors are motorized and can be extended vertically from the desk top, allowing the meeting table to be cleared as needed. The monitors are lowered or raised centrally via a button on the touch panel or by pressing a button on the monitor.
The user-friendly interface of the CRESTRON control panel makes it very easy to raise or lower the mounted monitors, control the operation of the audio equipment and switching system, and quickly switch the sources displayed on the screens.
The modern audiovisual system of the Professors’ Council enables the university administration to hold events of various formats at a high representative level. All installed equipment was selected with regard to the design of the premises. Despite the complexity of the system, working with the equipment is extremely simple and convenient.
NUST MISIS actively cooperates with Russian and foreign partners and regularly receives high-level delegations. A Council of Professors has been established, where status events of various formats are held – management meetings, negotiations with partners and high-ranking guests, press conferences, video communication sessions with colleagues from foreign universities.
