SITUATION

Built in 1957, the France A. Cordova Recreational Sports Center (CoRec) at Purdue University was the first U.S. university building ever created solely for students' recreational sports. The aging facility began to suffer from overcrowding and other functional shortcomings, which served as the catalyst for Purdue's desire to renovate and expand the building.

CoRec required a single, large DSP audio network that spanned across the entire facility with master control of the system located at the reception desk, and localized room control. The sheer size of the facility, with five total levels across the equivalent of three buildings, required an extremely flexible DSP that could be installed in a variety of different environments, and provide a high level of scalability and channel count. It also needed to be easy for the CoRec staff and IT team to use on a daily basis.

SOLUTION

Inter Technologies Corporation (ITC) was chosen to install the audio system and provide design support to the audio design consultant. Dale Miller, Project Manager for ITC, knew the only DSP on the market that could meet the comprehensive needs of the CoRec facility was Biamp Audia®. Capable of seamlessly providing conferencing, zoned paging and BGM throughout the facility, each AudiaFLEX can support up to 24 channels of I/O.

CONCLUSIONS

The Audia solution provided the level of flexibility and scalability required for the Purdue CoRec facility, with room to grow and expand as needed. By putting a DSP in each of the meeting rooms, the robust conferencing capabilities of the system made CoRec a go-to space for meetings of various sizes and purposes. Important for the safety of CoRec patrons, the system makes it easy to send emergency pages to specific rooms or throughout the entire building as needed.
