As you’re all busily updating and upgrading your AV systems over the break — while students are sun-bathing in the northern hemisphere and skiing in the southern hemisphere, we’ve been working on our InfoComm 2019 award-winning products. We hope to announce those awards next week! But, in the meantime, there are a few KEY new educational-aimed products I want to draw your attention to that I think you should look at immediately.
First, this company called HoverCam
used InfoComm 2019 to launch two new lectures — one aimed at primary and high schools and one aimed at colleges. The Pilot X is the K-12 one — go watch this two-minute video
and I will be you will want one! Mobile, battery-operated, wireless HDMI, built-in document camera and touch-screen control — all in one.
The second is the Pilot 5 — I have an earlier version of this in my classroom at UNC and LOVE it. This one is exactly the same but they added the battery. If you watch this
, I promise you that you’ll want to add this to every campus classroom.
And, NO, they didn’t pay me to say that. They are NOT a sponsor of rAVe ED and this is not content marketing. This is pure excitement.
Next, I want to show you the T1V ThinkHub Connect
aimed at classrooms — I did this video demo
the week before InfoComm with T1V and this is aimed at college classrooms that need a more active learning or collaborative learning environment — this demo was done in real-time and in a classroom.Extron
has amped-up its touchLink Control Panels. These might be the best in the industry right now
— they’re available in 5”, 7” and 10” and drop right in to any TouchLink classroom or one that doesn’t even have a control system as they have a built-in controller.
Finally, don’t forget that we shot over 1,600 videos at this year’s InfoComm show and all of them are here
. And, if you want to see something really cool we did at InfoComm, grab a VR headset and take a tour of the Epson booth in a fully-immersed environment here
(and it works in a browser too). Enjoy!
