CEI Builds World Class Broadcast System in New 48,000 sq.ft. Media Center
Washington, DC’s leading public radio station, WAMU 88.5, more than doubled its size recently by outfitting a 48,000 square foot facility with world class broadcast technology. The American University-licensed media giant commissioned Communications Engineering, Inc. (CEI) to engineer the design and build state-of-the-art technical systems while providing advanced technical training.
For 15 months CEI Communications Engineering, Inc. has worked closely with WAMU 88.5 and American University technical staff to design 21 broadcast and production studios and control rooms, an extensive technical core, and all IT infrastructures, electrical, mechanical, and acoustical specifications. CEI integrated AV systems for 12 conference and large community areas, an in-house IPTV system, Cable TV distribution, a fully networked/zoned music/intercom system, and several video walls throughout the facility at 4401 Connecticut Ave.
