The base pillar of future education is in connection between teaching and information technology, which brings new methods to make studies more efficient either for students or teachers. If any school wants to meet these expectations, it has to join forces with professionals focused on AV technologies, who could help to modernize equipment to make basically the whole school building online. We are those professionals. And Masaryk University is that school.
All of these spaces have now display, control and sound systems, which enable using the latest teaching and research methods. The standard is various kinds of projection systems, videoconference, LCD sets, mobile audio systems, etc. (see technical specifications).
We have also participated in creating a cognitive laboratory HUME LAB with 3D display technology.
Seminar classrooms are equipped with a projector Panasonic and a Wolfvision visualizer which are placed on a teacher’s desk. Larger classrooms are equipped with two projectors and a Lumens ceiling camera which replaces the desktop visualizer. In computer classrooms there are couples of Panasonic projectors installed, JBL column speaker set and a ceiling visualizer, too. The lessons are being recorded by Lumens rotating camera. Seminar classrooms with videoconference contain interactive multi-touch boards on which the picture is projected by professional NEC ultra-short-throw projectors. Videoconference is provided by a compact solution Avaya, which contains 10x optical zoom motor camera. It is connected with a Lumens rotating camera on the other side of the room. NEC large format display screen with a professional LCD panel display an ongoing conference. There is Extron SMP 351 streaming unit for e-learning which enables parallel recording and streaming in most of the classrooms. The whole distribution of AV signal is provided by other products of Extron – matrixes, signal transmitters and recievers.
