2009 Best Government AV Project (State & Local)
Like other jurisdictions around the nation, Fairfax County, Va., wanted new AV technology to help make things easier, from presenting evidence to arraigning defendants. Professional Products (PPI) placed a 32x32 Evertz EQX fiber-optic router at the heart of the county's court system, and now it's handling multipoint conferencing, HD video, and other communications over a secure backbone.

The building's courtrooms employ Panasonic plasma displays, NEC LCD monitors, Sony PTZ cameras, Creston Isys G-Series touch panels, and Elo TouchSystems desktop touch monitors. The court wanted its Shure push-to-talk mics to operate from the mics themselves, as well as from the Creston touch panels, an effort that required collaboration among PPI, Crestron, Shure, and Biamp, which provided its AudiaFlex DSP and echo-cancellation cards.
Following is a partial list if the manufacturers whose products were used in this 2009 PRO AV Spotlight Award-winning project.
