Extron has added new capabilities for GlobalViewer Campus Communication Suite, which combines bells, public address announcements, intercom, network monitoring and control of classroom AV into one software package.
The company says users will experience an intuitive interface with an improved visual icon library, plus a broader range of configured preset buttons to access frequently performed tasks. New District Operations features allow administrators to broadcast live announcements or use new configurable preset buttons to play recorded announcements to any or all campuses within a district. A dedicated lockdown button, plus presets, enables campus staff to play selected content at specified locations for fast targeted messaging. Self-diagnostic capabilities can now resolve configuration issues.
The GlobalViewer Campus Communication Suite allows administrators to create and manage recurring bell schedules locally or at the district level. For special events, bell schedules can easily be modified or disabled. Office personnel can make live public address announcements or play pre-recorded messages. Zone capability allows the announcements to be routed to all locations on campus or to a specific room. The integrated intercom system supports two-way voice communication over the network and provides flexible setup options that enable users to connect with one another.
GlobalViewer Campus Communication Suite enhancements are available today for customers in the United States and Canada.
