Illinois Institute of Technology, Center for Electricity Innovation

The Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation education and training center focuses on applied research, workforce training, and public awareness related to the national power grid. Coursework classes and presentations are both live-streamed and recorded for future access on the web. Video display walls of tiled high-definition monitors are prominently placed to draw participants through the public areas. The displays can be fed with live content from the classrooms, recorded presentations, and digital signage. Digital video marker boards from remote screens allow presenters to "write on the walls" while still facing the audience and recording cameras.
