The Digital Campus

Today’s AV technology not only brings the student and instructor together to improve the overall classroom experience, but also provides many solutions that can be centrally managed from an IT or administrative office.

Life Safety

What is your emergency plan? Keep your campus safe with a fully integrated Emergency Communication System (ECS) that combines the existing paging, text/phone messaging, fire alarm, and digital signage systems to create one ECS.

Room Scheduling

Trying to find an available meeting space? Using a Room Scheduling system, your staff can quickly locate and reserve a free space for their next meeting. Whether it’s days away or in just a few minutes, the system will reserve and communicate the meeting to all persons involved while displaying the meeting information outside the meeting room door.

Digital Signage

Whether a single display, video wall, or massive direct view LED display–capture your staff’s, students’, and visitors’ attention in the campus common areas to show your message and centrally manage multiple campuses using a centralized digital signage system.


With today’s Mass Comm courses, universities need state of the art broadcast systems. From broadcast cameras, TV lighting, switchers and monitors to off-line editing bays–Ford can provide your students with a professional level experience to prepare for a career in broadcast.

Stadium AV

Lecture Capture
