Comcast Corporation, one of the nation's leading providers of information and communications products and services, today announced that Lynn University selected Comcast Business Class for a specialty install of video services in support of the Lynn University-hosted Presidential debate. The special project served more than 3,000 members of the press from around the world and hordes of attending campaign staffers and government personnel with access to television news and entertainment via a comprehensive installation supporting more than 160 televisions in facilities and temporary structures, including trailers and tents set up for the debate.

Roughly one year in advance, Lynn University was tapped by the Commission on Presidential Debates as the venue for the important third and final Presidential debate which focused on foreign policy, a topic of significance to the University which as of spring 2012 had a multinational student body hailing from more than 80 countries and 44 states. University officials and the Commission on Presidential Debates spent the last twelve months preparing for the enormous challenge of accommodating the debate attendees – the President of the United States, Barack Obama, Republican Presidential nominee and former Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, members of the Presidential Administration, Democratic and Republican campaign staff, security and thousands of members of the press from around the world.

“As the whole world turned its attention to the action at Lynn University Tuesday night, it was crucial that our guests also be connected to the outside world for access to news, analysis and commentary around the debate,” said Chris Boniforti, Chief information Officer for Lynn University. “As Comcast is already providing video services on campus, it was natural that we would look to them for support of this important project. The complexity of this effort should not be underestimated, and Comcast Business Services exceeded our expectations with dedication, flexibility and precautions to ensure reliability that helped produce a moment of great pride for the University on Tuesday.”
