The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mandi is a public engineering institute of Himachal Pradesh. It is one of India's 23 IITs, incepted as Centers of Excellence for training, research, and development in science, engineering, and technology. IIT Mandi boasts strategic partnerships with leading research universities worldwide.

IIT's academic block offers modern comprehensive facilities that enable an enhanced learning experience for its students. In particular, its ultimate lecture recording studio built in October 2023, is aimed at creating engaging and high-quality video lectures.

Upon winning the pitch, Eminent Audio Visual, New Delhi, one of the leading providers of audiovisual solutions, was tasked with designing and implementing a turnkey project for the IIT's recording studio. Eminent AV has offered a tailored solution featuring top-notch brands and pinnacle technologies that best fit the institute's requirements for simplicity, flexibility, and reliability.

For this dedicated recording space, Eminent Audio Visual has utilized Lightware's multiple award-winning universal matrix switcher TAURUS UCX-4x2-HC30 as the core element that harnesses the power of the USB-C technology.

With this USB-C powered switcher, the lecturer's device is being charged whilst used for presenting.

Supporting multiple UCC platforms, TAURUS UCX enables the flexibility of using the video conference platform of the user's preference.

Eminent Audio Visual utilized HDMI distribution amplifier DA-4-HDMI20-C with built-in EDID management and Lightware's proprietary Pixel Accurate Reclocking feature that secures a reclocked and stabilized output signal to remove any jitter caused by long cabling or poor source signal.

In the studio setup, Lightware's 8m USB-C cables (CAB-USBC-AOC800K), USB 3.1 Gen 16m extension cables (CAB-USB-AMAF-T1600A), and 2m premium high-speed HDMI 2.0b flexy cables (CAB-HDMI20-PHS200F) were installed.

These high-quality cables, powered by TAURUS UCX, offered extended reach without the need for bulky repeaters, enhancing the technical elegance of the installation.

The IIT Mandi studio supports a wide array of features, including capturing, streaming, and recording. In the centre of the solution, TAURUS UCX thrives to provide a user-friendly experience, flexibility, and setup efficiency.
