Middle Atlantic Solves Problems For Leading Canadian Research Institute

Hamilton, Ontario––The new world-class David Braley Cardio Vascular Research Institute at Hamilton Health Sciences is equipped with state-of-the-art technology provided by the leading Canadian integrator, Duocom.

Hamilton Health Sciences (HHSC) is a network of hospitals that service Hamilton and surrounding communities. The David Braley Cardio Vascular & Stroke research institute is a dedicated 165,000 square foot research facility that HHSC built primarily to house two of its world-renowned research teams.

Graced with a budget in excess of $1 million, the Research Institute is equipped with an AV system that included Christie projectors, Draper screens, Biamp power, Mitsubishi LCD displays Accordent capture stations and media management server, a Visix digital signage system and Alcorn McBride digital video.

Given the high level of technology throughout the facility, the obvious choice for racking and infrastructure was Middle Atlantic Products. Besides the racks’ ability to neatly and efficiently tie in all of the incoming and outgoing cabling, the racks were able to make maximum use of the limited space in one small rack room on the first floor of the complex where the Auditorium, Atrium and Main Hallway spaces exist.

Using MAP swinging tall racks, cable ladders, etc. Duocom was able to design an AV rack room where all equipment (4 x swinging racks over 6 ft.) is integrated to allow easy access for long-term service. Specific rack choices also solved problems throughout the Institute.

More specifically, Middle Atlantic’s PTRK-21 rolling rack was originally specified for use in the 5th floor standard meeting room because they didn’t have any credenza space in the room where the rack could be located. However site conditions forced the change of the PTRK-21 when ERK4425 racks were used outside of each executive boardroom within a dedicated AV closet because there was no place to locate the racks inside the room.

When Duocom and the Middle Atlantic team realized that they had to utilize ERK4425 racks on the 2nd and 5th floors, it made more sense to eliminate the PTRK-21 rack and house the equipment centrally on the 5th floor Locating all of the AV equipment for the 5th floor in a single location (the new ERK4425 rack) made more sense from an integration perspective, and from a long-term service and maintenance perspective.

In addition, three Middle Atlantic SR4628 racks are located within the main AV rack room on the 1st floor where all of the AV equipment for the 1st floor is located in a very complex space). The SR4826 units were chosen partially because of space but also because they allowed easy long-term equipment maintenance (as a reference for you, the preliminary pictures I sent of the racks are these ones – and I’ve attached another picture of this room as well)

The SRSR-2-12 racks were originally specified for the two executive boardrooms on the 2nd and 5th floors because they were able to fit into credenzas that the client was having located in the room and the sliding rack allowed technicians easy access for future service and maintenance.
