Shanahan recently completed a successful ground-up refurbishment of Northeastern’s famed Blackman Auditorium. As the home to such varied events as a recent talk by Maya Angelou, a performance of Chinese acrobats, musicals, as well as academic lectures, the sound and visual needs to be of the absolute highest quality.
Because the space so frequently operates as a classroom, the controls needed to be professor-friendly, which meant that it is not only easy to use, but that the system would seamlessly integrate with the professor’s audio and video presentation. How many minutes have we all wasted while a presenter fiddles with his or her laptop to get a presentation going?
Shanahan provided the Northeastern University technical department in-depth training for its sound system. But, professors can learn the system in 90 seconds: A single rotary switch operates the main systems in the auditorium – one setting allows for all of the extensive needs of a top quality performance and the other, the simple setting, lets Professors walk into the room and operate everything with a single push of a button.
