Classroom audio makes headline news in North Carolina

UNC Hussmann School of Journalism and Media has standardised its audio with eighteen Nureva HDL300 systems

The University of North Carolina Hussmann School of Journalism and Media has chosen Nureva audio for all of its learning spaces in the Carrol Hall building, its home on the UNC campus at Chapel Hill.

Eighteen Nureva HDL300 systems have been deployed in the building,
with plans to add up to six more. Standardising with Nureva audio throughout the journalism school has allowed UNC to provide a consistent and reliable experience for instructors and students – whether on location or working remotely.

According to Nureva, its Microphone Mist technology is perfect for hybrid learning, “filling a room with thousands of virtual microphones”, allowing students to hear and be a part of every conversation, no matter where the instructor or in-class students move in the room or the direction they face.

As well as excelling in class, Nureva also received high marks from the Hussman School IT team for ease of installation. Each integrated microphone and speaker bar was installed in about 30 minutes, with no need for an outside technician.

“What I like best about Nureva audio systems is the simplicity,” says Gary Kirk, broadcast engineer at UNC’s Hussman School. “All I have to do is plug it in, and it works. It just works. Nureva is the perfect choice to fulfill our goal of building classrooms that are collaborative, scalable and affordable.”

Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO adds: “Our relationship with UNC goes back to when they outfitted their first ‘dream classroom’ in 2018, and we are excited by the success they have experienced with our solutions.

“The Hussman School is one of the top journalism and media schools in America, and we are honored to be their provider of choice for audio systems.”

The success of Nureva audio in the journalism and media school has inspired four other departments at UNC to purchase Nureva systems. UNC has selected Nureva as the audio system of choice for Curtis Hall, a state-of-the art building for media education currently under construction. The showcase building will ultimately have up to seven HDL300 systems in key studio and learning spaces.
