FSR Offers Two Continuing Education Courses Geared Toward Interior Designers

Courses teach how to blend communication and information technology into design elements for heightened presenter and user experience

 

Woodland Park, NJ (May xx, 2018) – — FSR, a leading manufacturer of a wide variety of infrastructure solution products for the audio/video, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), education, hospitality, and government markets, is offering two new continuing education courses geared toward the interior design community. Both courses are approved by the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC); and the International Interior Design Association (IIDA), and Lourdes Collins, FSR Director, Furniture and Design Channel, has been certified to teach both.

According to Collins the courses are available to all, but specifically target Design Firms whose customers need to integrate information technology, audio / visual equipment and control devices into design elements for shared, heightened and convenient communications. “Today’s designers face a dual challenge,” explains Collins, “they not only have to provide high-performance high-design environments, but one that allows easy and reliable access to functional technology as well. These courses will expand their knowledge of collaboration spaces and connectivity options, and discuss alternative practices when designing and arranging furniture for successful boardrooms, hospitality venues, schools, or similar projects.”

Course descriptions

Designing Successful Technology - Rich Collaboration Spaces

This course introduces various types of collaborative environments and the challenges associated with the design of these rooms. It will focus on stake-holder input, design, layout and implementation and discuss how furniture choice and placement, technology integration, connectivity and equipment storage can impact the user’s experience and productivity.  Real-life examples of spaces and solutions will be offered throughout the presentation.

AV & IT Connectivity in Ceilings, Walls, Floors and Tables

This course will take the attendee on a journey from the traditional presentation spaces of yesterday, through the technology revolution driving the design of today and tomorrow’s Auditoriums, Classrooms, and Conference Rooms. Along the way the instructor will discuss how changes in AV & IT connectivity can impact– and improve - the experience for both audience and presenter.

“We are extremely pleased to continue to bring value and knowledge to the design community via these two new courses,” says Jan Sandri, FSR president. “Education improves competence and skill and is a powerful tool to strengthen any individual and elevate an entire profession. We are proud that Lourdes has been certified to teach these courses and are already scheduling classes.”

New York, NY (September 7, 2017) – The verdict is in — the John Jay College of Criminal Justice has selected five FSR HuddleVU Collaboration Systems, for its small-group study rooms located in the Lloyd Sealy Library of 

FSR HuddleVU at John Jay group study screen e1504876959926

Haaren Hall. The systems allow multiple users to share and view their laptops, tablets, and smart phone screens on a main display, underscoring the school’s efforts to encourage student collaboration, group study and shared projects.  FSR, a leading manufacturer of a wide variety of infrastructure solution products for the audio/video, Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), education, hospitality, and government markets, released project details from Company headquarters in Woodland Park, NJ. 

Lloyd Sealy Library, which holds more than 500,000 books, periodicals, films, microfilms, and digital collections, offered students all the resources necessary for group study and shared projects, except the technology that would result in greater collaboration and increased use of the study-group rooms. Following an exploration and evaluation process of affordable options that would create the ideal environment for people to view and share ideas, the school made the decision to install FSR HuddleVU Collaboration systems.

According to Geng H. Lin, Library Systems Manager, “Everything was built-in so we didn’t have to reconfigure the current space, which was a concern. We decided to try two immediately.” FSR's HuddleVU systems include all the necessary video switching equipment, control hardware, display power control and color-coded captive HDMI cables for a simple, yet effective way to install quickly and operate.

Once the FSR HuddleVU systems were installed in two rooms in the upper library, the College focused on stimulating interest via signage in the library, promotion on the library website and a notification to students via internal electronic communications. The rooms were quickly in such high demand that the College added HuddleVUs in the Library’s lower three rooms as well. Each installation was accomplished in one day and came in under budget.

According to the College, the rooms “just work” for the students. The HuddleVU’s are so intuitive and reliable that the students have been able to operate with minimal instruction, and without asking for outside assistance. John Jay College now has a user-friendly, self-contained system designed for group study. Students are able to use the HuddleVU systems immediately following a few simple instructions, and are equally at ease using it for group projects, studying or displaying their work on the screen. The school anticipates a lot of collaboration amongst students when they have group projects, and looks forward to adding systems as space becomes available. According to Lin, “Students are extremely happy with the equipment — they are really enjoying it. It has been a great experience overall.”

          Each week Ajish Raju, from Rave Publications, highlights someone from the AV Industry. This week he chose our very own Gina Sansivero, Director of Business Development, Education. In the article Ajish asks Gina questions about her time in the AV Industry & how her journey began, what challeneges she thinks those new to the Inudstry are facing, what her typical work day looks like & more! Below are a few excerpts from the original article.

1.Describe your journey in the AV industry? How did it start?

" I knew I wanted to help people, I knew I wanted to have that connection with people, I knew I wanted to make people feel comfortable in my presence, and I knew I wanted to relate to people and learn from them. While in college (where I was studying elementary education and then psychology) I was hired as a marketing assistant at a medical components company. When I finished my BA in psych they asked me to work full time for them. So I went from a part time marketing assistant to full-time marketing coordinator, then into product management, and then into product development. I kept moving up in the company until I felt like I had hit my plateau....In 2014, I left RelampIt to pursue a position as director of business development for education, with FSR. Having spent many years studying education, I love that many of my interests and passions are coming together now."

2.What do you think is the challenges that are facing a new person who wants to join the industry.

"I think most people don’t know what this industry is about, so the challenge is to educate yourself about the facets of the industry from engineering to manufacturing, product design to project management, lighting, programming/ coding, acoustics, video, etc. So many pieces that I didn’t know existed when I started down this road over 12 years ago. What’s so fantastic is that there are hundreds of industry veterans willing to help you. You just have to do a bit of digging."

6.Describe a typical work day for you. What are your daily disciplines?

"Each day is different, especially if I am traveling and doing campus tours (love campus tours). So I guess my daily discipline is taking a shower because everything else changes. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s not to say my days aren’t organized and structured and I am a complete mess- that’s not true. I adapt quickly but I don’t like sustained chaos. Actually, can chaos be sustained? Maybe not. So then I don’t really like chaos but sometimes it happens and you deal. Especially when flying…you have been paying attention the news about the airlines, right? Yipes!"
