The same DEVOS system can be used for many other applications in schools such video morning announcements, cable TV distribution to classrooms, webcasting major events such as graduations, concerts, and plays, digital video signage, recording and distributing board of education meetings, and emergency alert notifications. It is a secure system and can be used with the schools’ active directory for teacher and student sign-on.
