At San Francisco State University we have extensive experience in
modifying existing classrooms for media viewing, and yes, one projection
system is the best way to go; it's sometimes harder to set up, but
definitely easier for the faculty to deal with. Check our AV/ITV
Distribution website ( under
the Electronic Classroom Database and Smart Classrooms to see the
classroom setups we have done.

You may also want to look at our Current AV Equipment page
( to
see mobile, cart-mounted units we have created which can make ANY
classroom a multimedia room.

For technical info on electronic classrooms, smart classrooms and
multimedia carts contact our Technical Services Coordinator, Joe Spurgeon
