The AMX Innovation Awards is an exclusive awards program designed to recognize innovative higher education institutions for their use of technology in improving the campus experience. The awards program selects a winner in each of the following categories:
Philadelphia, PA, USA
CHALLENGE: Technology users in classrooms and special event spaces needed a simple, effective way to request technical support. While phones are a typical stand-alone solution, the needs of technology users could be better addressed by adapting the communications functionality directly within the equipment and technology solutions.
Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA
CHALLENGE: To reduce implementation and support costs and improve efficiency of operations, Texas A&M strives to develop a standardized technology deployment approach to controlling classrooms, conference rooms and auditoriums. The specific requirements of various departments and colleges are assessed in the planning phase of all new building construction projects, with agreement from various stakeholders on the technologies to be deployed contributing to a robust and efficient environment.
University of Ottawa, Ottawa, ON, Canada
CHALLENGE: Flipped classroom, active learning and specialized spaces are requiring careful thought, preparation and attention to detail. There is an overwhelming need to challenge existing design protocols in order to create new and more interactive learning spaces for tech-savvy clients.
Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, QLD, Australia
CHALLENGE: The vision for a new Science Engineering Centre called for an innovative public gallery, classroom, research facility, and corporate function venue utilizing cutting-edge solutions to ensure a stunning visitor experience today, and sustained performance and capability well into the future.
Penn State University, University Park, PA, USA
CHALLENGE: The College of Business sought to implement a user-friendly, flexible and sophisticated automation and control solution for a large lecture theater classroom. The facility was to be used flexibly for multiple instructional/event formats including some remote participation. The technical skill of users of the space would vary, so an innovative technology design requiring minimal support is critical.
