County Commissioners Broadcast System
The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners meets in the county’s Administration Building. The county recently converted this space into a television broadcast facility so that board meetings and other events could be live broadcast.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Broadcast system design
- Audio-visual system design
- Sound reinforcement system design
- On-site system commissioning, including operator training and assistance during the first use
The broadcast system includes five high-definition pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The new production video switcher has live streaming capabilities and a control surface that provides both video switching and camera control. A digital video recording device allows for the archival recording of proceedings.
The audio-visual system includes 80-inch displays at the front of the room and personal monitors on the dais. The entire system is controlled by touchpanels with intuitive AVANT-designed interfaces. One touchpanel is located at the clerk’s desk on the dais, and the other, which includes more advanced functions is located in the control room.
