There is a quickly emerging necessity in educational institutions for instruction to be provided to students off-campus and at home. The desire is to replicate the in-person teaching experience as much as possible. The challenge is even more acute if the instructor needs to work from home.
A key for any system solution would be to capture the instructor next to the screen, as in a normal class session. The system also should be adaptable to a range of functional requirements.
Atlona offers the OME-MS42-KIT and HDVS-CAM camera. This combination provides essential AV and USB device interfacing for the camera, a display, and the instructor’s laptop running Zoom or other video conferencing platform, plus USB extension to place the camera sufficiently away from the instructor.
If acquired for the instructor’s home, the system can later be installed permanently in a classroom with a document camera, audio system, and a PC or appliance for lecture capture.
