Apantac has a version of the HD Based T TX/RX that is called Set 3. It is guaranteed to send signal up to 70 meters. The Set 1 is for 100 meters. The set 23 is approximately 20% less expensive. None of the classrooms should be over 30 meters form TX to RX. Will the Set 3 be acceptable? No. We will only accept Apantec HDBT-SET-1 as listed in the equipment list for this project. 14. Will the quotes need to include WA State sales tax? Yes. Please include WA State sales tax in your quotes. 15. Item one is 5 ea. chief RPAMAUW mount and additional 5 ea Chief CMS440 and CMS003W. Three projectors are already installed in Classroom A, B, C in bldg 1700. Do you want those taken down and the RPAUW/CMS440/CMS003W installed with the existing projectors? Yes as they were probably not mounted correctly to the ceiling in the first place. 16. The VDO360 USB camera requires local power. Will the college provide the local power at the camera location? The campus electrician will be able to assist the A/V vendor with any electrical need while onsite. 17. The VDO360 requires local power and a USB extender package to get the USB video to the computer and has 12X zoom. An alternative camera is the Vaddio Zoomshot Wallview Mini with USB mini interface (see attached spec sheet). The interface provides power and video over CAT5 AND RS232 control over CAT5 AND includes an IR remote control. The IR remote can also control up to 3 cameras if there is a need for additional cameras n the future. And it also has 19X zoom. The Zoomshot cost a bit more but the additional expense of the Tripp Lite USB extenders and local power that is needed by the VDO360 ends up to be a much higher cost than the Vaddio product. Is the Vaddio Zoomshot an acceptable substitute? No alternatives will be accepted. 18. Will the college set up the USB ports on the PC with the USB drivers? Yes 19.
