Course Description

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to interpret a brief for the vision system requirements of a production or space and to design a plan for the installation of vision systems. The development of a vision system plan requires considerable knowledge of the operational aspects of all types of vision systems and would normally be undertaken by senior technicians or technical directors.

Overview of Assessment

Critical aspects of assessment and evidence required to demonstrate competency in this unit are:
Technical knowledge of the performance capacity of range of vision systems
Effective interpretation of the brief and development of workable plans to meet the brief
Effective communication with clients and other technical personnel
 


Assessment Tasks

You must submit all pieces of assessment in order for your competency to be assessed in this course.

Assessment tasks in this course are either formative or summative. Formative tasks provide the basis for ongoing feedback and can be considered an essential building blocks for the more substantial summative assessment tasks. Summative assessment tasks in this unit are graded. For further information on the assessments and grading criteria, please refer to the course Blackboard site.

To demonstrate competency in this course, you will need to complete each one of the following pieces of assessment to a satisfactory standard.


Formative Assessment
Steps towards Major Project completion

You are expected to show your teacher Steps 1, 2 and 3 of the Major Project (below) for feedback and review in TAFE Week 12, Semester 1 (9th May 2014).

Summative Assessment
Major Project

Presentation to class on a System Design with audio and video control, floor plans and elevations of the room and a document to include the scope of work. Due in TAFE week 15, Semester 1.Please refer to the Assessment Guide in Blackboard for further information on this assessment.

Aim
The aim of this assessment is for you to demonstrate your ability to design and plan the vision and audio systems for a given room. Please refer to the Commonwealth Training Unit for Production Lighting in Blackboard (online) to ensure you cover the elements and performance criteria related to this unit.

Brief
Choose one of the 5 scenarios below and design an AV system to suit your selected room floor plan (in Blackboard).
Choose one of the following;

•Home Cinema/Gaming system. 5.1 Surround sound system with high-end projector (ceiling mounted) and hidden projection screen or Large Screen Monitor. Controlled via wireless Touch screen. DVD, Foxtel, Free to Air TV, acoustic treatment of walls. 5-10 pax*.

•Lecture theatre. Dual Projection (Interactive whiteboards or projector), Stereo audio, ceiling speakers, Desk mounted wired touch screen, Gooseneck microphones, Computer input, Document Camera, DVD/VHS player. 200 pax*.

•Gold Class Digital Cinema. 7.2 surround sound, Cinema Processor, Digital Cinema Monitor, 4k Projector, Silver screen, acoustic treatment of walls. 200 pax*.

•Multipurpose space. Cinema/Live performance/event space for a School. Audio, Lighting, Video capture, Projection, Communications, Digital signage. 500 pax*.

•Boardroom. Video Conferencing system with Projection system, Audio system, Lighting track system and Control system. 50 pax*.

*pax = number of people

Then complete the Major Project by following these steps;
Step 1Decide which scenario to do your Major Project on (as above) and prepare/write a statement outlining what the system is designed to do
Step 2Choose a floor plan from Blackboard (they do not specify room dimensions – these dimensions will be up to your discretion and should suit your system). Develop a floor plan and elevations (side and/or front) showing the relationship between the room and the equipment – i.e. location of speakers on the walls, height of the image from the floor, sight lines of users, etc.
Step 3Complete video, audio and control schematics including details like signal/cable type (RGBHV, HDMI, Line, RS232, IR/wireless). Two schematics may be necessary to show full detail of the control wiring.
Step 4Write an equipment list including the make, model and specifications of all equipment
Step 5Explain why you chose each component of the system
Step 6You will be expected to present your system to the class

All your work must demonstrate;
●The application of a range of technical vision knowledge and drawing techniques such that the AV design meets production and safety requirements
●Knowledge of vision integration terms and control protocols
●All drawings, floor plans, elevations and sections must be clear, neat and easy to read
●Effective communication and problem solving skills
●Presentation Skills – presentation to be between 5 and 10 minutes long
●Each project should be handed to me in hard copy and be available in soft copy form for your presentation.

Due TAFE Weeks 15 & 16, Semester 1 (31st October and 7th November)

Assessment Criteria A checklist of skills (assessment rubric) will be used to grade you individually, available on the day for your perusal. Fair and reasonable practical participation is expected.
