SECTION I - SCOPE OF WORK
The University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire, is currently constructing a New Student Center to replace
the existing Davies Center, which no longer meets the needs of the campus students, faculty or staff.
The new student center under construction will include a number of event spaces, with more area
and flexibility with which to serve the student body, as well as faculty and staff, and the greater
community of the Eau Claire area. In addition to these event spaces, the facility will also serve the
student body with dining and foodservice facilities, lounges for entertainment and study, student
services, offices for student organizations, and a cinema/auditorium space.
Spaces within the Audiovisual Scope of the Project are to include:
1. Meeting Rooms - in three general configurations:
a. Type 1 - Small meeting rooms with multimedia capabilities for small group meetings
and seminars.
b. Type 2 - Medium meeting room, divisible, with multimedia capabilities, for both
small meetings, as well as serving larger student government meetings and events
c. Type 3 - Large meeting rooms with expanded multimedia capabilities, as well as
voice reinforcement audio, to serve large meetings and seminars. This room type
includes the Council Oak Room and the Dulany Dining Room.
2. Two Ballrooms - in two sizes/configurations:
a. Large Ballroom - A large 4-way divisible event space with extensive multimedia
presentation capabilities, high-output voice and music reinforcement audio dedicated
to the space, as well as infrastructure to support portable concert audio and theatrical
lighting systems in numerous configurations to suit a diversity of events which the
room will host.
b. Medium Ballroom - A smaller, 2-way divisible event space with almost identical
capabilities to the Large Ballroom, in addition to the ability to integrate audiovisual
signals and media with the Alumni Center to which this Ballroom is attached and
may act in conjunction with for certain events.
c. Prefunction Areas - Outside of each Ballroom, these areas will include integrated
audio, which may act to provide overflow for large events, or provide separate
operation for prefunction announcements or during event registration, etc...
3. Alumni Room - a comfortable, more lounge-type space, adjacent to the Medium Ballroom,
which is anticipated to both hold smaller events and dinners, which may include the Medium
Ballroom, or to act as an overflow space for events that take place in the Medium Ballroom.
While video media is not considered a primary function of the space, the capability will be
supported, with voice reinforcement and background music being the primary requirement
of the space.
4. Multipurpose Room - This space is a multifunctional space of approximately 200 fixed
seats, configured as an Auditorium that will primarily serve as a student cinema, and will thus
be equipped with audiovisual systems to serve that end, as well as presentations, lectures and
musical concerts with amplification.
5. Cabin Bar - This space with feature a bar and service area with seating on a main floor and
balcony area, facing a stage. Both background music, live sound reinforcement for music,
1
and truss-mounted projection for entertainment will be featured. The live sound
reinforcement system will include both installed and portable elements.
6. Lounges & Recreation Spaces - Will feature a mix of background music and paging
systems along with display locations to serve campus CATV and media messaging services.
Specific areas include:
a. Non-Traditional & Safe Lounges - These will each offer a single large display for
entertainment as well as overhead speakers for background music and paging. Each
of these will feature their own local control.
b. Campus Living - Is a large space above the dining areas that provides a 'commons'
type space for students and will include comfortable seating and well as a number of
displays with local control, for entertainment as well as background music and
paging. An outdoor Terrace, adjacent to the balcony level, will be integrated with the
local and building-wide audio here with a level control located on the terrace.
c. Media Lounge - will feature a space for students to enjoy electronic games,
individually or in groups of up to four at each display - which will be equipped to
allow students to interface a variety of game consoles, computers, and headphones
for single to multiplayer online game play. The headphones will provide isolation in
a space that will have up to four separate display gaming "stations" within the room.
d. NOTE: Other lounges within the facility will be focused toward study, and will not
include media other than general building-wide background music (BGM) and
paging.
7. Food Service Areas - Are to receive BGM and paging audio coverage. Specific areas
include:
a. Main Dining Room - in addition to BGM/paging audio, this area - similar to and
adjoined to the Campus Living room above by a stairway and atrium space, will
feature large entertainment displays with local control of campus CATV as well as
media players for display of managed content. A floorbox and various wall-boxes at
the perimeter of the space will allow for the staging of portable live sound
reinforcement systems.
b. Main Servery - will include local control of the BGM and paging fed to the space
c. Kitchen - will include BGM and paging, with local control and local inputs for
Owner or Employee furnished music sources in the Kitchen Office.
d. Organic C-Store; Grab-and-Go Store - will include local control of the BGM and
paging fed to each space.
8. Retail Areas - will receive building-wide BGM and paging. Specific Areas are to include:
a. Student Bookstore - A two level retail space, with local audio control and local
inputs for Owner or Employee furnished music sources, located in the Bookstore
Office space.
b. Leased Retail Space - will include BGM/paging with local control of sources.
9. Common Areas - will receive general building-wide BGM and paging, along with digital
signage displays at entry locations and central circulation points. These spaces are to include:
a. Corridors - will have ceiling speakers to carry BGM/paging, as well as digital signage
displays with media players at first floor entries, as well as in clusters at the junction
of stairways with corridors on the second and third levels.
2
b. Main Service Desk, Blue-Gold Office, Student Services Office - will each
feature a wall mounted signage display and media player at the entry/main desk for
each space.
c. Main Service Desk - in addition to digital signage, the Main Service Desk will also
offer the main point-of-control for the building-wide audio systems, with a
touchpanel control on with wall and a local wall-mounted iPod dock. A desktop
microphone will allow building-wide announcements to be made over the system, as
well as from the building telephone system. Other audio sources for BGM will be
located in the nearby Teledata Room.
d. Campus Dashboard - this system is to feature a 3x3 recessed video wall, which is
anticipated to display signage media - in particular, a display of the building and
campus energy consumption and/or savings. Though the Owner is currently in the
process of deciding the software and interface that will drive this feature, we
anticipate that the sources will most likely be a media player and/or Owner
Furnished PC computer sources. We do not anticipate a requirement for interactive
capabilities, nor discrete multi-window processing.
10. Outdoor Areas - will include two (2) terraces on the second level and a 'green-roof' type
terrace area on the third level, which will offer BGM/paging functions with local control of
the audio.
11. Portable Equipment - in the facility is to include a selection of:
a. Analog Audio Snakes - for events featuring analog systems, a 32x8 front-of-house
[FOH] fantail, as well as 32x8 stage box, will connect to multipin connectors
provided in locations where use is commonly anticipated. In these locations,
adjacent connections will be provided for:
b. Digital Audio Snake - for events where use of digital systems is desired, a 32x16
digital snake system will include a rack-mounted stagebox with mic preamps, a FOH
mix box in a rack along with a remote control unit for control of the stagebox
preamp settings.
i. Analog and digital snake systems will be configured to provide a stereo main
mix output, and four channel monitor output through the room audio DSP,
normalled to the monitor amplifier and main audio system output. This
configuration can be overridden through the control system to allow the
normals to route, unprocessed, back to the number 1-6 returns of the analog
or digital snake systems.+9
ii. ';+
c. Assistive Listening Receivers - housed within a charging case along with a case for
accessories, these receivers will be configured by the Owner to serve with the various
ALS transmitters installed within room systems to meet the requirements of ADA.
These receivers will include a selections or earphones and inductive loops for users
to check out at the main desk.
d. NOTE: The Owner currently has a large selection of wired and wireless
microphone systems, outboard processing equipment, mixers and live sound
reinforcement FOH and monitoring equipment that they plan on using with the
systems noted herein and, though not within the scope of this document, are
planned as part of the functionality of the building upon occupancy.
3
Campus Standards and Integration Requirements: The campus has established a current set of
standards with respect to the various systems and equipment to be used on this project. The
standardized systems and their integration requirements will include:
1. Control Systems - The campus has currently standardized on Crestron systems for room
and AV systems control. The standard control interface for use in this facility is to the a 6"
wireless touchpanel in a recessed wall mounted docking station. Other locations will rely
upon wired in-wall button panels, also by Crestron, with the only non-Crestron control to be
areas with basic control of BGM/paging sources and levels, which will be part of the audio
processing network. Additionally, the campus currently uses Crestron RoomView for
system monitoring and management, and this capability shall extend to the new systems in
this facility.
2. Control System Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) – The campus has Contracted with the
Consultant for the initial design and coordination of the GUI interface pages, which are to
be provided to the Contractor during the engineering and submittals phase of the Project,
for incorporation into and integration with - including final layout and corrections, the
Control System programming and software for each system/space in the facility as provided
by the Contractor.
3. Lighting Control - The lighting systems in areas of the building provided with Crestron
control as the audiovisual control system shall also provide primary control of the room
lighting systems. The AV Contractor will be responsible for coordination of control system
programming with the EC and lighting control Vendor, as well as the network integration
required to communicate between the AV control systems and the ETC lighting control
systems through the ETC-NET3 network. This is to be the primary control interface for
room lighting control and is the preferred method over RS-232/422, low-voltage contacts,
or DMX - which is to be used primarily by the Events operators for Event lighting control.
4. Audio/Video Transport - The campus has recently adopted Crestron's Digital Media [DM]
system, with the single-wire solution (Crestron DM-8G) as the current campus standard for
AV digital media transport, switching and processing. These systems are to be employed to
the greatest extent possible in the current Project.
5. Digital Audio Transport and Processing - This campus has been using CobraNet audio
networks wherever applicable in the past and has decided to employ the new AVB (AudioVideo Bridging) standard for all networked audio systems in the new facility. Based upon a
majority of projects with networked audio the school has done in the recent past, the defacto standard for these projects has been the Biamp Audia and AudiaFlex series of product
which the University would like to continue with the use of the Biamp Tesira AVB-based
network audio processors.
6. Room Scheduling and Digital Signage - The campus has standardized and been using the
Visix series of Meeting Minder room scheduling panels and Visix Media Players for its
projects, as well as using the Visix room scheduling software and Visix media servers and
content management. The requirement for this project will continue this standard for all
endpoints. The Student Center is also considering the replacement of their current Visix
Server with a new server, which will require integration with this Project.
7. Supplemental FLS/Emergency Notification - It is the intent of the University to provide
"supplemental" audio and visual notification from the systems specified herein, to the
primary FLS systems for both life-safety and emergency notification purposes. The
4
audiovisual systems shall accept input from the FLS Master Panel, which will mute all audio
program in all spaces and provide an extension of the FLS audio to the systems to
supplement the primary FLS audio. The room video systems shall also have the capacity to
accept muting from the FLS system, and in its ultimate configuration - display emergency
notification video signals from the FLS or signage systems.
This document describes the required audio and visual systems installation to be performed.

secondary ground conductors. A copper conductor having a maximum of
0.1 Ohms total resistance shall connect the primary system ground bar to the
nearest approved electrical ground. The Contractor shall be responsible for
determining if the metallic conduit is properly electrically bonded to the
building ground system.
Secondary system grounding conductors shall be provided from all racks,

conductors shall have a maximum of 0.1 Ohms total resistance.
b.
Under no conditions shall the AC neutral conductor, either in the power
panel or in a receptacle outlet, be used for a system ground.
Audio Cable Shields
All audio cable shields shall be grounded at one point only. There are no
exceptions. For inter and intra-rack wiring, this requires that the shield be
connected at one end only. For ungrounded portable equipment, such as
microphones, the shield shall be connected at both ends but grounded at
only one end.
25
c.
d.
e.
Video Receptacles
All video receptacles that are provided and installed by the Contractor shall

otherwise detailed herein, this shall be accomplished by using insulated-frompanel type receptacles.
Audio Receptacles
All audio receptacles that are provided and installed by the Contractor shall
be insulated from the mounting panel, outlet box, or wireway. Unless
otherwise detailed herein, this shall be accomplished by using insulated-frompanel type receptacles.
General
Because of the great number of possible variations in grounding systems, it
shall be the responsibility of the Contractor to follow good engineering
practice, as outlined above, and to deviate from these practices only when
necessary to minimize crosstalk and to maximize signal-to-noise ratios in the
audio, video, and control systems.

CobraNet Audio
29
a.
b.
c.
A typical CobraNet signal can contain up to 4 bundles of audio travelling in
each direction, for a total of 8 bundles per device. Each bundle houses up to
8 channels of 48 kHz, 20-bit audio, for a total capacity of 64 channels.
CobraNet is somewhat scalable, in that channel capacity increases when 16bit audio is used, and channel capacity decreases when 24-bit audio is used.
Specific channel capacity is defined by the 1,500-byte Ethernet payload limit.
There are three types of bundles: multicast, unicast, and private:
Multicast bundles are "broadcast" from one CobraNet device to all other
CobraNet devices in the network using Ethernet multicast addressing. Each
CobraNet device individually determines if it will use the bundle or discard it.
Therefore, multicast bundles are more bandwidth-intensive than other
bundle types. Bundle numbers 1–255 are reserved for multicast bundles.
d.
16.
17.
Unicast bundles are sent from one CobraNet device to any other device or
devices configured to receive the bundle number. Unicast bundles are much
more efficient because they attempt to travel only to devices which actually
want to receive them. Despite their name, unicast bundles may still be sent to
multiple devices, either by transmitting multiple copies of the audio data or
using multicast addressing. Bundle numbers 256–65279 are reserved for
unicast bundles.
e.
Private bundles may be sent with unicast or multicast addressing. Bundle
numbers 65280–65535 are reserved for private bundles. Private bundle
numbers are associated with the MAC address of the device that transmits
them. To receive a private bundle, both the bundle number and the MAC
address of the transmitter must be specified. Because private bundles are
associated with the transmitters there is no hard limit on the number private
bundles.
Network Control
a.
Network control uses the Internet Protocol Suite (commonly known as
TCP/IP) for control of audiovisual and other devices. This is the set of
communication protocols used for the internet and other similar networks. It
is names for the two first protocols in the standard: Transmission Control
Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP).
b.
Considerable coordination between multiple trades and the owner may be
necessary to facilitate this type of control, specifically when utilizing any
portion of the owner or building IT cabling infrastructure for Network
control of AV devices.

SECTION V – MEETING ROOM, TYPE 1, DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS
A.
Functional Description
The Type 1 Meeting Rooms will serve small meeting and seminar events. Due to the size of the space, voice reinforcement
will not be required, with the primary systems in the space to serve display of video and audio media from a local source.
A more detailed description of the Type 1 Meeting Room systems is as follows:
Audio:

Program audio, using stereo speakers spaced on either side of the room display surface (or in the case of one of the
rooms - see plans, ceiling mounted speakers), along with a surface mounted subwoofer, under the room countertop
to provide low-frequency augmentation. A multichannel amplifier will provide power to the speakers in the room.

Integration with the building-wide AVB audio network using a small AVB I/O node.
Video:

A panel in the floorbox at the front of the room will provide an interface to the room display with inputs for HDMI
with embedded audio and VGA with a 3.5mm stereo audio jack. This in turn will be connected to the room display
through a digital transport system, through a combination digital transport switcher with built-in audio processing
and room control processing.

A Blu-Ray player will be provided in the equipment rack for viewing of Blu-Ray discs and DVDs. Control of the
Blu-Ray will be via the control system.

A rack-mounted pull-out shelf with a USB connection to the OFE-room-PC for charging and a 3.5mm cable for
connection to the room audio system shall be provided for connection of a User's iPod, tablet, Smartphone or
Android device to provide source audio to the system.

A rack-mounted ATSC/QAM tuner to provide connection and selection of campus CATV (NIC) to the room
display

An Owner-Furnished PC computer will be located on a rack-shelf to provide a PC computer source to users without
their own portable laptop or tablet.

Video projection using a ceiling mounted projector and screen as the room display. Signal to the video projector will
use a digital transport converter at the projector to convert video to a format native to the projector.
Control:

A wireless touchpanel, located in a flush wall-mount docking station will provide a secure location for room AV and
lighting control, and with the proper user code release the touchpanel to operate over the wireless network.
This section of the specification defines the functional details of the audiovisual system(s) to be furnished and installed for
the Auditorium.
