C-SPAN Studio & High-Tech Tour Bus
C-SPAN is once again traveling around the country to engage with teachers, students, viewers, and elected officials to showcase its multi-platform public service resources. For this tour (and many to come), C-SPAN came to CMI to have us build them a brand new motorcoach with the most cutting-edge technology. Step into the modern yet industrial stair well and you'll see the first of over thirty interactive displays installed in this coach! Ten monitors frame the classroom-like entryway and LED light strips lead back through acrylic sliding doors to the presentation area packed with larger displays and a custom J-lounge sofa. The custom-built couch consists of removable sections to create a more versatile space. This multi-use space has several more TVs that can slide in various directions, one of which features 360 degree touchscreen technology. There's even a selfie station that allows you to upload photos directly to social media while you do your best reporter impression (there's a microphone and different backgrounds to choose from)! For circulation and accessibility purposes, a second door was installed with a wheelchair lift and custom removable steps. After custom graphics were applied that showcase C-SPAN's "50 Capital Tour" (click for details) the bus embarked on its cross-country journey! Be sure to check out our videos page and social media for more on this state-of-the-art motorcoach.
