SAN DIEGO — Aug. 4, 2008 — Broadcast systems integrator TV Magic has completed an A/V installation for the new city council chambers in the City of Aliso Viejo, Calif., providing audio, video, and control systems for use at city council meetings. The new digital equipment replaces a simple microphone and tape recorder setup previously used by the city during sessions held every other week.
"Aliso Viejo is an emerging city, having only been incorporated in 2001," said Glenn Yasui, director of administrative services for the City of Aliso Viejo. "Since that time, we have been using a very simple setup for our city council meetings, consisting of a microphone and tape recorder. With our new city council chambers, we wanted the ability to integrate audio, video, and PowerPoint® presentations into our meetings."
As part of the new city council chambers, TV Magic replaced and upgraded the chamber's microphones and speakers with Shure® Gooseneck microphones and JBL® speakers. In addition, two 50-inch Panasonic plasma screens were added, along with a Crestron® touch panel and Extron® interfaces for A/V control. With the installation complete, Aliso Viejo is able to provide multimedia presentations to council meeting attendees with a space-saving system that occupies only one equipment rack.
"TV Magic provided technical expertise in the design and installation of the new system, and was flexible throughout the project. At one point, the ceiling height was lowered and they had to replace 65-inch monitors with 50-inch monitors, which was done quickly and efficiently," added Yasui. "We have been using the A/V system in meetings since February, and have been quite pleased with the results. TV Magic has provided us with a system that meets our needs now and into the future."
