New Audio Video System for Eliot Middle School

Modern audio video system in schools is not a luxury any more. It’s becoming a standard in all schools step by step. It’s the requirement of the time to provide all students with the modern technology to use it in their study process.

ForTech Solutions has recently finished another big project for a public school. This time the goal was to upgrade Eliot Middle School’s Arts Magnet Academy in Altadena, CA.

The new AV System will now be able to provide perfect audio video experience for up to 800 people.

The whole system is controlled by Extron control system. Control Touch Panels on the mobile lectern and the equipment rack make the control extremely user-friendly and easy-to-use. The 2 speakers, 1 sub-woofer, and 7 hidden front speakers create the perfect sound in the hall.

Motorized screen that disappears whenever not needed.


Dramatic movie experience is all you need.

    This looks like a gorgeous setup. I’m more than a little bit jealous. Here’s hoping I can lead a project like this soon! Thanks for posting.
