A recent decision to design and build a new educational studio and control room in a University School of Education, led to Tecom TecPodium lecterns as the main technological hub in the studio. The new studio is designed to serve both students and lecturers, who carved on their flag : "Education and Excellence".
On the technical side, Tecom supplied TecPodium Lite HD lecterns, which provide easy-to-use access to all the audiovisual equipment in the studio including computer, projector, laptop, sound and more. Ergonomically designed, the Lite HD Lectern also includes an interactive pen display to allow direct on screen annotation.
Ultra-short Hitachi interactive projectors allow the lecturers to annotate on the whiteboard as well. The studio has 3 PTZ HD cameras and microphone recording system to allow recording of multiple angles. Sound masking wall tiles were also installed for better acoustic treatment.
The School CIO commented: "Now, we can easily use the studio. Presenters are more confident with the technology in the model classroom we’ve designed so we’re more focused on how to improve educators rather than handle the equipment. We are very pleased with the TecPodium Lite lecterns and so are our teachers."
