Control Room Solutions

Modern campuses are broad with complex ecosystems that rely on centralized control facilities for everything from AV technology monitoring and management to parking enforcement, accessibility maintenance, and critical asset management. Mechdyne enhances control while simplifying administration by creating command centers where technology can be remotely monitored and controlled, and problems can be detected and remediated. These facilities even provide opportunities for student instruction in technology management.

The impact is dramatic: Labor costs plummet, and so do response times. Workflow is simplified and uptime is increased along with end-user satisfaction. Mechdyne draws on vast experience creating command and control centers for industry, and we bring the same skill set to universities so that they can embrace technology without becoming hostage to it.

Solutions for Learning Spaces

Nowhere will your educational technology investment have a more visible impact than in your learning spaces.  Integrating digital innovation across the student experience not only facilitates learning and enhances student satisfaction, but also provides new opportunities to engage with your communities, make progress in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), provides immersive learning experiences in virtual environments, and much more.

In-person collaborative learning experiences engage and inspire us. These spaces provide opportunities to reflect on information and data with expert educators and researchers, creating new knowledge and intellectual insight.

From small-group environments to large lecture facilities, Mechdyne creates and upgrades learning spaces to support collaboration, videoconferencing, hybrid/distance learning, web-casting, visual production, broadcasting, and traditional speaker presentations. In every environment, we focus on easy operation and flexibility to support the wide range of personal devices students rely on, provide the connectivity demanded by today’s digital learners, and ensure an equally satisfying experience for on-site and remote students. Our solutions also accommodate faculty’s individual teaching styles and streamline service and support for AV, IT, and facilities staff.

Solutions for Auditorium Environments

Whether outfitting a new space or upgrading an existing one, Mechdyne brings unprecedented flexibility and capabilities to large-venue and auditorium environments. Together we’ll explore the universe of potential uses for the space and custom-create an audio visual solution that meets your every requirement, from lectures and presentations to large-group collaboration, videoconferencing, distance learning, webcasting, broadcasting, and more. Our goals: to create spaces that offer a seamless, inclusive experience for audiences, turnkey operation for presenters, easy upkeep and servicing for support staff, and broad flexibility for the future.
