US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
In these hallowed halls, tradition and technology join forces to create a more perfect union.
House of Representatives – Energy and Commerce
Washington, DC 2017
Faced with aging equipment, The U.S. House of Representatives needed to upgrade its presentation, communication and broadcast capabilities. More than that, they needed to connect the new equipment to control facilities beneath the Capitol dome – and they had to do it without disrupting either the work of the government or the historic integrity of the buildings.
Pro Sound engineers automated a system that tied high-quality broadcast production to a centralized control room blocks away. Remote camera and microphone control enabled live broadcasting of Committee meetings via both television and the internet, while simultaneously enabling archival recording.
The resulting system also integrated with presentation systems in the Committee rooms themselves, without moving any walls – all to keep the government functioning efficiently and the American public informed.
