Challenge

The higher education market has seen dramatic shifts in teaching methods changing how students and teachers interact and engage with each other. Virtual reality is increasingly being used to create new learning experiences allowing students to form a better connection with their education.

Traditionally, each set of goggles must be connected to an individual workstation powering the experience. With multiple classrooms in different locations, the longer transmission distance and typically high latency of other network-based systems means that traditional solutions simply won’t work work for distributing high data rate video and USB.

Solution

Atlona’s OmniStream AV over IP platform supports VR in the classroom by allowing PCs running the VR application to be safely placed in an equipment room allowing controlled access by the technical staff. Students and teachers from any classroom can use headsets and a keyboard and mouse in the room to control the VR-enabled PC.

People learn at different paces and react to different stimulus in an educational environment. Everyone benefits from a more lifelike and hands-on experience through virtual reality. The hope is that with Atlona’s OmniStream technology, the educational system can enrich students lives to help them be more successful in life and contribute to a better world.

Challenge

Small meeting areas where 2-3 employees can meet, collaborate, and share ideas are necessary because interaction at a cubicle eliminates confidentiality and interrupts nearby workers. But with small spaces, come small budgets. Low-cost flat panels, simple inputs for a laptop or iPad, and PC-based teleconferencing are the components of these basic systems.

Solution

From transmitter / receiver combos to small switchers, Atlona has multiple solutions that enable cost-effective huddle rooms. Integrated control, audio de-embedding, and switching make the design simple and repeatable. Advanced Automatic Display Control features make it simple for anyone to use these rooms. With switching, scaling, HDBaseT™ extension for inputs and outputs, and audio de-embedding in a small box, you can be certain Atlona technology supports collaboration!
