The client

A premier university in the Philippines, ranked in the top 100 universities in Southeast Asia, is renowned for its commitment to excellence in education and its dedication to producing future leaders and innovators. Mapúa is recognized for its rigorous academic programs, cutting-edge research, and a tradition of fostering creativity and critical thinking.

Mapúa University continues to be a hub of learning and innovation, shaping the future of countless students and contributing to the growth and progress of the Philippines and beyond.


The challenge

Implement a seamless hybrid learning solution within a tight three-month timeline, including ideation, equipment shipping and installation.


The solution

The final choice fell on TeamConnect Ceiling 2, alongside LG screens, Q-SYS processors, PTZ cameras and Martin Audio ceiling speakers that work harmoniously together. Thanks to these cutting-edge technologies, the path to the hybrid learning experience was paved. In an alliance with Arizona State University (ASU) and 20 other universities worldwide, this collaboration has brought an innovative approach to education and knowledge sharing with approximately 150 students participating virtually and 40 students physically, offering a glimpse of the future of global education. 

"We wanted the best products & room for this project. We are glad to realize this with Definitive AV and Sennheiser. Special appreciation to Dr. Boni Doma Jr. for facilitating the collaboration between ASU & Mapúa on bringing cutting-edge technology into the global classrooms."

Sev Astilla, Facilities Officer, Mapúa University.

The Tech Behind the Transformation

The transformation at Mapúa University involved the installation of 8 units of Sennheiser's TCC 2 in three branches of the university - 2 units in Makati, 3 in Laguna, and 3 in Davao. These units found their home in the campus's ASU Global Classrooms, specially designed for hybrid lessons and global signature courses. The purpose of these rooms is to provide an immersive and interactive learning experience, fostering collaboration and knowledge sharing among students from across the globe.
