David Neal, teaching space technology coordinator, Lancaster University said,
Working with Pure AV's programmer we've ensured the panel design matches our other meeting and teaching spaces, so room users can quickly understand how to switch on, interact and manage the room environment.
To further ease user adoption of the space, the system provides the room-user with the familiarity of wired laptop connections via HDMI recessed into the boardroom table but also enables wireless connection using Barco Clickshare, a device that the senior management team already use within their other meeting spaces.
Led by David Neal, the University is also trialling the introduction of Mersive's Solstice Pod in the meeting room to extend wireless connectivity to a wider range of devices.
The rollout of Office 365 across campus is increasing the use of video conferencing within the University's meeting spaces. The addition of two ceiling based boundary mics to cover the conference table and a PTZ camera to capture video makes running a Skype for Business meeting within the John Welch room easy. Meeting attendees can log into their PCs and set the meeting up without the need to worry about audio quality and clarity.
