When managers at the prestigious Kingston University decided to upgrade their AV
systems from the analogue to the digital world, they knew that choosing the right
partners would be key to their success. So the university, which was recently
ranked among the top 15-percent of higher education institutions in the world,
turned to leading systems integrator GV Multimedia for a HARMAN-centric solution.
Featuring AMX and JBL technology, the new university system was designed to
ensure that its technology credentials are every bit as impressive as its credentials
in education.

Composed of four campuses each with its own distinct character, Kingston
University boasts an impressive range of teaching and learning resources, including
a blend of traditional and modern buildings which house lecture theatres and
teaching rooms plus a range of flexible spaces which can be zoned for different
types of learning activity. To ensure that it continued toward fulfilling its ambition to
become a university of choice for students who want to thrive in an interconnected
world, Kingston University knew that it needed to migrate to a digital system.

Working in close collaboration with HARMAN and Kingston University, GV Multimedia
has harnessed award-winning AMX Enova technology to deliver a system designed
to ease the university’s digital transition and solve the complexity of managing its
connected devices in a reliable, consistent and scalable way. Sitting at the heart of
this impressive installation, Enova DVX presentation switchers deliver a cost-
effective room solution that’s easy to scale, configure, install and use. All-in-one
controllers, AV switchers, scalers, analogue to digital signal converters, twisted pair
transmitters, amplifiers and professional grade audio processors, these compact 3U
presentation switchers afford Kingston University the ability to control and automate
any room environment. In addition to delivering an impressive array of room-level
capabilities, the DVXs, with their embedded NetLinx controllers, offer many
advanced networking features allowing for the central management of the entire

Thanks to the inherent scalability of the AMX technology, GV Multimedia has been
able to roll out and deploy no fewer than 122 rooms in an incredibly time-efficient
and cost-effective way by applying what is proving to be a highly successful
technological formula. Rooms are classified as either lecture theatres or medium to
large rooms, and given a technical specification to suit. Common to all rooms,
regardless of size or function, is the combination of AMX Enova DVX and Modero S
Series touch panel. The lecture theatres, which have a higher AV specification, also
boast state-of-the-art HARMAN JBL 7:2 surround sound systems. The result for
Kingston University is a flexible solution they can standardize across their mixed
estate, with the reassurance of knowing it can be appropriately scaled to match the
needs of each room type.
