Challenge

Soft codecs such as Skype® for Business and WebEx® allow cost-effective videoconferencing for collaborative teaching spaces, allowing university researchers and student / faculty teams to work with remote participants. However, delivering a quality video and audio experience from a PC is challenging, whether relying on the built-in camera and mic of a laptop, or trying to string together long USB cable connections.

Solution

The Atlona AT-UHD-HDVS-300-KIT is an extender for both AV and USB. With USB connectivity at the transmitter and receiver, you can place a high quality camera at the display, and a speakerphone at the table. HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA interfaces easily allow connectivity to laptops for meeting participants, while automatic switching and display control make user operation effortless. You can even connect the HDVS-300 to a touch display for interaction with a presenter’s laptop.
