Article in industry magazine highlights importance of technology and the value of providing the best
HigherEd TechDecisions recently featured our project for Whittier Law School in Orange County, CA. In the article, Whittier’s vice dean Martin Pritikin says that the new rooms and technology tools we helped to create, including Crestron programming that exceeds expectations, represent “the latest technology to prepare students for where we expect law to go in the future.”
To move the Whittier coutroom, jury room and judge’s quarters into the technology environment that law school graduates will encounter in the real world, our San Diego County Crestron programmers delivered the best in technology and performance, including a touchscreen Crestron control panel that works with HD-V panels, wireless and wired connectivity, multiple displays, five pan cameras and a custom programmed Crestron interface that rises from the tops of tables in the jury room.
Our Orange County Crestron programming team is proud of the Whittier Law School project and we are proud of the HigherEd Tech Decisions article. The magazine’s readers include our colleagues and customers. We are pleased to be able to share with them a Crestron programming project that demonstrates creative work driven by programming technology. This makes the article a good opportunity for AVPA Crestron programmers to be recognized by our peers. But it’s not about praise or recognition in and of themselves. In being so recognized, our Crestron programming team is able to become a part of timely discussions about collaborative technology, learning environments and the instructional value of Crestron programming solutions and others, like those we provided the Whittier Law School students and faculty.
Written by Jessica Kennedy, the piece points out the fact that Whittier Law School students are better prepared for their careers in part because of the work that we have done in their facility. This is a huge responsibility and it fits with our company’s approach to how we serve our customers of all kinds. We do high quality work honestly and consistently and we listen to our customers and connect them to the AV programming that they need. In this case, listening to our customers not only gave them the optimal technology experience that we work to deliver, it also helped them to fulfill their promises to their students and to meet their learning objectives.
Further, the project and our coverage in a respected industry magazine like HigherEd TechDecisions gives us the opportunity to speak to other education customers and to share an important lesson with them and with our industry peers. Namely, and Ms. Kennedy quotes owner Matt Grisafe on this point, that colleges and universities should “be part of the solution.” We encourage colleges and universities to get involved in the project like Whittier did so that we can understand them, their students, their needs and their expectations. This is when, as in the case of Whittier Law School, we are able to provide the very best.
