Maize Middle School Cafetorium
With enrollment projections exceeding capacity, Maize Middle School recently underwent a renovation and expansion, which included a new cafetorium.
AVANT ACOUSTICS provided the following services:
- Room acoustics consultation
- Audio-visual and sound reinforcement systems design
- On-site system commissioning including operator training and assistance during the first use
The cafetorium’s AVANT-designed AV system includes:
- Long-throw projection onto a ceiling-mounted, motorized screen,
- Multiple flat panel displays throughout the room,
- Wireless microphones,
- A portable digital mixing console which can be connected at multiple locations using a digital audio snake, and
- Digital signal processing, including an automatic mixing system.
The sound reinforcement system includes a source loudspeaker cluster, as well as a distributed overhead system, to provide even coverage while maintaining directional realism from the stage. AVANT optimized the AV system and the room acoustics for both cafeteria and auditorium uses.
