The base pillar of future education is the connection between teaching and information technology, which brings new methods to make studies more efficient either for students or teachers. If any school wants to meet these expectations, it has to put forces together with professionals that focus on AV technologies, who could help modernize the equipment to make the whole school building go online. We are those professionals. And Masaryk University is that school.
All of these spaces now have a display, control and sound systems, which enable using the latest teaching and research methods. Usually there are various kinds of projection systems, videoconferences, LCD sets, mobile audio systems, etc. (see technical specifications).
We have also participated in creating a HUME LAB cognitive laboratory with 3D display technology.
Seminar classrooms are equipped with Panasonic projector and Wolfvision visualizer that are placed on the teacher’s desk. Larger classrooms are equipped with two projectors and a Lumens ceiling camera which replaces the desktop visualizer. In computer classrooms there are installed pairs of Panasonic projectors, JBL column speaker set and a ceiling visualizer, too. The lessons are being recorded by Lumens rotating camera. Seminar classrooms with videoconference contain interactive multi-touch boards on which the picture is projected by professional NEC ultra-short-throw projectors. Videoconference is provided by a compact solution Avaya, which contains 10x optical zoom motor camera. It is connected with a Lumens rotating camera on the other side of the room. NEC large format display screen with a professional LCD panel displays an ongoing conference. There is Extron SMP 351 streaming unit for e-learning which enables parallel recording and streaming in most of the classrooms. The whole distribution of AV signal is provided by other products of Extron – matrixes, signal transmitters and recievers.
