Biscayne Campus Library’s new ASK Center

Florida International University has commenced with their ribbon cutting ceremony for the Biscayne Bay Campus’ ASK! Center at the Hubert Library on October 30, 2014. The initiative began over 1‐year ago by Dean Anne Prestamo and Associate Dean Bryan Cooper to create a student learning and support zone for writing, languages and academic technology use.

CCS Presentation Systems has contributed to the ASK! Center by installing a digital signage system at the service desk with 4‐portrait orientation displays recessed into the woodwork. Paired with the FourWinds interactive content, the service desk can update library hours, upcoming events and seminars or post emergency updates.

Additionally, CCS had helped design and implement a student interactive viewing and listening station. Powered by Crestron Electronics, the dual viewing stations allow study groups to view library video sources for review and entertainment. Each viewer also has a dedicated audio headset and amplifier for private listening and volume control. The dual touch-panels operate each station independently or can share the same video/audio source for a larger viewing group.

The project total was $35,000.00
