PCD recently completed an AV integration for the theater, LED video wall, and gym at the Rothschild Performing Arts Center/Harker School in San Jose, CA.
Shovels hit the ground in May 2016 to begin this remarkable campus upgrade, which was a collaboration between Studio Bondy Architecture and Kevin Hart Architecture. Theater consultants The Shalleck Collaborative lent their expertise on the design of the auditorium as well as the A/V systems, including the expansive LED wall in the lobby. Acoustical experts Charles M. Salter Associates also worked as consultants to design the acoustics of the auditorium.
PCD’s role includes the installation of the larger than life 34-foot-wide by 15-foot-tall LED video wall in the lobby as well as an audio visual system to support theatrical productions, media presentations and more. Keep an eye out for the article featuring PCD’s work in the upcoming May 2018 issue of Sound & Communications Magazine!
