In 2009, Applied Electronics completed the integration of audio/visual systems in the council chamber, councillor’s lounge, committee room, and four corporate meeting rooms in the City of Guelph’s Civic Centre.

The new council chamber houses council members, the Mayor, 2 CAO, 2 Clerk positions, a presenter’s lectern and table, 8 staff seats, 4 press desk seats, and a 154-seat public gallery. The A/V system incorporates a Christie Digital DS+655 DLP projector, a Da-Lite 9 ft. x 12 ft. motorized screen, ceilingmounted and table top document cameras, and a 180-degree swivel lectern that can address the council or gallery. Twenty-five DIS microphone/voting stations are fully integrated with the AV system, allowing display of the voting tabulations, request to speak and agenda items to be displayed, as well as access to a complete hearing assistance system. The clerk’s position also has a 10” Crestron touchpanel on a swing arm that controls the lighting, microphone system, voting system, a separate DVD/VCR player, laptop computer input, and the Rogers cable TV feed. A Crestron TPS15B 15” swivel touchpanel, base-mounted on the press desk for a remote system operator to assist clerks, allows full video preview capability and control.

Delegate microphone/voting stations

The adjacent Councillor’s Lounge is equipped with a complete A/V system and displays proceedings from the council chamber. Rogers Cable also has 6 cameras feeding through the AV system to broadcast the
proceedings to the public while allowing the images to be viewed on the AV system.

A brand new multi-purpose A/V system was built into their new committee room which incorporates an existing voting/microphone system from the adjacent council chamber. A Panasonic PTD5700UL DLP projector, Da-lite 100” (diagonal) motorized screen, seven delegate stations complete with request to speak and voting capabilities, and a fully detachable lectern which houses a high resolution document camera, laptop input and goose neck microphone. The system is fully controlled by a Crestron TPS6LB touch panel and control software.

The corporate meeting rooms are equipped with a 100” or 145” (diagonal) Da-Lite front projection screen, Mitsubishi XD2000U projectors and Extron CIA111 wall-plated interface control systems.
