Physical Therapy Program Classrooms
Modern Communications continues to design and install AV systems for the Physical Therapy classrooms. The layout of the three latest PT rooms provides functionality for lectures, subject demonstrations, webcasting, recording and streaming. Each room is equipped with two Sony laser based projectors and numerous Sony HD flat panel displays, all being fed by an Extron matrix switcher. The switcher supports a variety of sources from a resident PC and visiting laptop to Vaddio PTZ cameras. A Crestron control system allows the room to be operated at the podium and at the AV support desk.
Equipment used to design these three classrooms include Sony Professional Displays, Crestron, DaLite screens, Extron, Peerless and Premier Mounts, Vaddio PTZ cameras and control, Sennhesier wireless mic systems, Lowell, Middle Atlantic and TOA speakers.

Ursuline Academy - St. Louis
Modern Communications was asked to change a 30 year old gymnasium sound system, which is still being used as a training gym, to a performing arts center sound system.
In phase one we installed 2 groups of line-arrays and subs (out of basketball range), a 24 channel mixing board and amps to power the speakers. The mixer can be connected to the audio rack from 4 different locations with one cat5 connector.
Ursuline was very surprised with the sound quality and cost of the installation. This is a great example of Modern Communications listening to our customers and giving them the most cost effect solution, fulfilling all of their needs, with growth options.
