Press release date: December 5, 2013

SEATAC, WA — Professional video and audio systems integration firm Advanced Broadcast Solutions (ABS) today announced it has been awarded the contract to design, integrate, and deploy expansive video and audio technology solutions for Wallis Annenberg Hall, a new building for the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. As part of a multimillion-dollar technology investment, the project includes television and radio broadcast production and post-production systems for a 20,000-square-foot converged newsroom/media center.

The school broke ground for Wallis Annenberg Hall in late 2012. Scheduled to open next fall, the 88,000-square-foot, five-floor building will feature technology-rich classrooms and multi-purpose rooms, as well as an auditorium, ground-level public forum, and research labs. ABS will design and build television, radio, and webcast studios, as well as control rooms and edit bays, to support the newsroom environment. The project will also include the installation of a media asset management system, which will be used by students across the school.

“As a graduate of USC, this is a very personal project for me,” said Mark Siegel, president, ABS. “We are embracing the school’s converged media concept and incorporating technologies that will keep USC on the leading edge of media education.”

ABS is taking a phased approach to the project. Currently in Phase I, the company is evaluating technologies that will maintain the integrity of the school’s converged workflow while remaining sensitive to budgetary restraints. Initial plans include equipment and software from Adobe, Avid, Primestream, and Ross. Phase II, which will include equipment procurement and installation, is expected to be complete by the end of April 2014.
