Digital Signage

Digital signage is a communication tool which provides streamed video content to wall mounted TV's. This solution entails a one-time installation cost and an annual service charge. The installation cost depends on the location, the type of TV and mount, and the installation of any required power and network cabling. The annual service charge is $195/yr and covers access to our central account for content development and a player which IT provides, supports, and replaces as required. To request an installation quote, email the IT Help Desk and include a description of where you would like the digital signage displayed.



Echo 360 Active Learning System

Echo 360 is a Lecture Capture System. The system enables faculty to record audio, course visuals, and optional video for students to review in digital format. This provides students with a powerful tool that can be used for review, or to supplement materials covered in class, or to provide instruction that is entirely web-based.  Students will have the ability to seek forward or back in a presentation to particular segments of the captured session. The captures can be viewed via a web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari), and/or be downloaded to a computer or mobile device.

Epson BrightLink Interactive Projectors

These wall-mounted projectors reflect images directly on whiteboards without the need for screens. The projector and whiteboard are used together for basic projection and as an interactive learning tool. With touch- and pen-based interactivity, this technology allows for writing, drawing, and collaboration on the whiteboard using familiar, intuitive gestures. The easy-to-use Moderator software (pre-loaded on the classroom computer) allows lessons to be saved and shared. The whiteboard can continue to be used normally with traditional, dry-erase markers; however, note that writing performed with markers cannot be captured via the interactive software.
