CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY STANDARDS
Introduction
All vendors installing network wiring or equipment in classrooms, conference rooms, and other
group presentation areas shall meet the requirements of Instructional Technology and be
familiar with pertinent classroom standards before proceeding with such installation.
Any new classroom installation shall conform to existing technical specifications. Instructional
Technology shall provide specifications, quality assurance, interdepartmental liaison, and
support at the earliest stages of design in order to ensure compatibility with existing services.
During the planning phase Instructional Technology shall consult with the departments involved
and the design staff, including the architect, regarding the necessity and specifications for new
classrooms. Any system designed to interface with existing campus services must have a
design approved by Instructional Technology prior to the release of an RFP or RFQ.
During the construction phase of a new project, Instructional Technology shall consult with the
installation contractor in a quality assurance capacity to ensure compliance with the approved
design. Instructional Technology shall coordinate any down time required to interface the new
installation. For final approval the contractor shall furnish printed proof-of-performance data and
two copies of blue-line drawings with electrical and physical specifications of the new
installation.
Classroom Standards for New Construction/Renovation
1.
2.
3.
4.
Adequate provisions for blackout of outside light.
Good lighting through either direct or indirect fixtures.
Dimmable lighting control to darkness at or near the teaching position.
Provisions made for conduits and 110 VAC in the walls, ceiling, etc., for video
projection and/or TV monitors. Adequate backing for TV monitor mounting hardware
at designated locations of the room.
5. The horizontal width of display devices shall be at least 1/6 of the distance from the
device to the furthest viewing point.
6. All classrooms shall have marker boards as needed.
7. Auditoriums shall be equipped with media hardware, conduits, storage space,
amplifier racks or shelves.
8. There shall be a media storage/wiring closet on each floor separate from the power
and janitorial services with adequate power outlets.
9. There shall be easy access to the room for the movement of equipment, supplies
and teaching devices/materials.
10. Provisions for current and future communications service (telephone, computer,
video, fiber).
11. All ADA requirements must be met.
12. All projectors more than 10 feet high shall be equipped with a scissors mount.
13. All rooms with a video projector shall have a tension screen.

General Classroom Wiring Standards New Construction/Renovation
A.
Cable and Connector Specifications:
1.
Baseband Video Cable: Beldon 82241 or 8241 as required
2.
Connectors for Video Cable: Amphenol 31-5900
B.
Conduit for media and network connections to the instructional podium in any
room shall consist of three 1 ½” conduits or equivalent. Conduits to all wall and
ceiling mounted equipment must be at least 1” in diameter. For all other
classroom wiring, 1 ½” conduit shall be the minimum size utilized, unless
exceptions are authorized in writing by Vice President of Information and
Technology.
C.
All bundled cables shall be labeled at both ends with a permanent printed label.
Cables must be routed vertically along the edges of the rack panels. Connector
adapters will not be used except where equipment has female F connectors for
video connections. In this case, male F to female BNC adapters will be used.
D.
The ground wire for cables with XLR connectors shall be insulated within the
connector. Soldered connectors with multiple signal wires will have strain relief.
For all new buildings, or where required as part of the project scope of work, provide for the
installation of communications pathways and spaces for the elements of the communications
systems so included, but not limited to, multi-service communication systems, twisted-pair
systems, coaxial cable systems, and optical fiber systems.
Coordinate the layout of conduits, raceways, conductors, and cables with the Using Agency and
allow for significant but reasonable changes in use of the spaces served.
Classroom A/V Standards
Verify the specific level required with the University Facilities Services Project Coordinator
assigned to the project prior to incorporating these classroom standards in the design.
TYPICAL CLASSROOM A.V. STANDARDS - LEVEL IV CLASSROOM
NEW OR RENOVATED CLASSROOMS TO A LEVEL IV STATUS MINIMUM CHECKLIST:
INCLUDE:
ACOUSTIC LEVEL - Not to exceed NC-30
LIGHTING CONTROLS – Indirect lighting or rewired/reswitched lighting.
control front and back. See concept drawings at the end of this section.
WINDOW COVERINGS – “Black –Out” Window Coverings as needed for media viewing.
Refer to Division 12 Section 12500 for other window coverings.
ADEQUATE HEATING/COOLING VENTILATION-minimize noise of HVAC
