In the northern hemisphere, we know you’re slammed in the summer as, while the students are out, you are busy installing new AV gear. And upgrading the rooms with laser projectors! So, we’ve shortened this issue of rAVe ED to focus only on that’s important RIGHT NOW. For example, we have two columns dealing with network security. These are important and timely reads. And, we have a great piece from rAVe ED columnist and Bates College AV-geek, Scott Tiner
, on the active learning classroom and it’s relationship with collaborative spaces and technology.
Finally, while you’re upgrading your rooms, have you seen Extron’s new TouchLink panels
? They all have a built-in IP Link Pro control processor, come in 5”, 7” and 10” sizes and are PoE. We use these in my classrooms at UNC, in fact!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and protect that network as we move to an AV-over-IP world.
