2021 INTEGRATION AWARDS K-12
AVT: COMMONWEALTH
CHARTER ACADEMY
PITTSBURGH NEW BUILD AV
AVT helps top accredited
Pittsburg charter school
provide high-quality
learning experiences out
of remodeled department
store through AV solutions.
By Zachary Comeau
WHEN COMMONWEALTH Charter Academy
(CCA) secured a 62,000-square-foot former
department store building in Pittsburg,
the top accredited public cyber charter
school turned to Applied Video Technology
(AVT) for building-wide audiovisual systems
to provide personal educational programs
and services to K-12 students.
The solutions installed included digital
signage, video walls, sound making and
control systems to provide high quality
learning experiences for students attending
class virtually.
The building houses administrative
offices, conference rooms, huddle rooms,
a multi-purpose room, seminar areas,
production labs, live session rooms and
common areas throughout the building,
the latter of which is the site of a large LED
video wall that the company says is the
cornerstone of the project.
Each space in the building was designed
to have its own unique functionality depending
on the specific use for room type,
all while considering ease of use for the
teachers. With each room designed with
the end user in mind the goal was to be
able to transition from space to space with
the same type of understanding of how to
use each system.
All rooms have an Extron control system
to control monitors, digital signage players
and audio systems. TechWork rooms
were designed to be divisible, allowing
for increased functionality depending on
the type of event being held. Conference
rooms were equipped with Sharp monitors,
USB cameras and table top Crestron
Mercury systems for video conferencing

purposes. Live session rooms, seminar
rooms and meeting rooms included Sharp
monitors, Logitech USB cameras and
Crestron Mercury systems to allow for
teaching flexibility, and all are controlled
by wall mounted Extron push-button
controllers. Each room also has an Extron
room scheduling panel outside of the room
to display schedule information integrated
with CCA's existing scheduling software.
Project highlights include a 4K 2x2
video wall in the reception area to greet
guests with digital signage video and audio
through JBL column array speakers. A large
multipurpose space includes eight Sharp
monitors and two Epson projectors with
Da-Lite screens projectors and audio and
video conferencing support with JBL speakers
and Vaddio PTZ cameras.
In the main commons area of the building,
AVT installed a 141 " x 80 " Nanolumens
