AV Standards

This article applies to: Integrated AV


Cornell's AV Standards are a set of documents and underlying services and processes that allow colleges, units, and construction projects to produce consistent classroom and conference room technology experiences in support of teaching and learning activities. The documents range from a benchmark report, to use case-based planning documents, to buildable system design and control code.

Executive Documents

Benchmark Report

This benchmark report details the current state of classroom and video technology at both peer institutions and enterprise.

System Designs

Schematic level designs and equipment lists for building each room type. The designs are modular for various room sizes and geometries.

Type 1 Room

Type 2 - 5 Rooms
The information will be added soon.

Cornell Control Code & User Interface

Control code and user interface are the source code and graphic files for building each room type. The code is configurable and extensible for common and emerging variables.

Type 1 Room
The files are available upon request. Send an email to cit-av@cornell.edu.

Type 2 - 5 Rooms
The information will be added soon.

Reference Guide for the Purchase of Teaching Stations and Lecterns

This document is meant to assist the decision maker when purchasing teaching stations and lecterns at Cornell University. The document provides information on design and selection considerations of Universal Design and ADA and technical and functional requirements.
