|– Arizona State Legislature (Government HD Broadcasting Upgrade)
The Arizona capital building houses the states senate and house of representatives. To accommodate contemporary broadcast standards, the existing standard definition system needed to be upgraded. To keep the cost of purchase and operation affordable, EAR and SEG worked with the Capital TV staff to design and install system wide upgrades to the existing broadcast center and hearing rooms with high definition cameras capable of reusing as much of the exiting infrastructure. Hearing rooms and the Senate/House floors were updated with new cameras and control systems centrally controlled by a small staff in the broadcast center. Also upgraded was a the existing analog broadcast distribution and wireless display systems.
The second phase of the project included upgrading the 40+ year old lighting system to LED fixtures and installing hear loop systems for the chambers, galleries and hearing rooms. All audio, video, lighting, hearing loop and voting systems are managed and controlled by Crestron touch screens and panels.

|– City of Phoenix (City Council Chambers Robotic Camera/LED Lighting Design & Control)
The city of Phoenix is the largest metropolis in the Southwest. Like most larger cities they broadcast their city council meetings live and on demand via the internet. A special challenge to their operation was allowing control of their board meetings from the City Channel 11 studios located a block away and across the street. The only practical way to connect the two facilities was existing city fiber runs between the facilities. EAR provided management and installation, our partner SEG provided design engineering and support for the deployment. The fiber connectivity supports almost daily production including high definition video, audio and robotic camera control. The existing lighting in the main council chambers was replaced with LED fixtures resulting in a net cost savings due to decreased energy and reduced air-conditioning usage.
