Hall Technologies helps to mesh old-world and modern-day at Istanbul University


Founded in 1453, Istanbul University is one of the world’s oldest universities. At present, there are more than 69,000 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students studying a variety of academia. The main entrance gate, in a style reminiscent of Moorish architecture, stands as it has for more than 150 years, with impressive influence from the Roman and early Byzantine empires. Istanbul University has a notable faculty and alumni including presidents, prime ministers, and other pollical dignitaries, writers, musicians, and scientists.

Project partners Hall Technologies and the Aselgrup were challenged with melding old-world style and modern-day technology for the university students and faculty represented.

The Biology Sciences Building houses seven departments, spanning an area of more than 27,000m2. The building required a technology upgrade to provide connectivity for its classrooms for both in-person and distance learning scenarios. The challenge was to bring the building and classrooms up to speed with a fully automated solution that could control content, audio, and video without relying on DSP mixers or video processors.

Aselgrup partnered with Hall Technologies to create the first-of-its-kind smart building at the historical Istanbul University. With a vision of a connected classroom, Aselgrup and Hall

Technologies outfitted the building’s 38 classrooms with Hall’s EMCEE200 product connected to an Epson projector. Seventeen of the rooms were also connected with camera systems for accessible remote learning for students.

The EMCEE200 is a multi-view switching device primarily used to tile images of a PC, a teacher’s laptop, and classroom cameras. It hosts via its picture-in-picture and picture-over-picture features. The faculty uses Shure stage microphones and wireless Lavalier microphones that connect to the EMCEE200 to live stream the teacher’s presentations. Furthermore, the EMCEE200 can record the teacher’s presentation to an external storage device.
