Bringing UC capability to most any learning space
Don’t be left behind
Hybrid learning technology is essential for colleges and universities to meet students’ changing needs. Converting dozens or hundreds of traditional classrooms to accommodate distance learning can be a challenge – financially, logistically, and in terms of time. That’s why ClearTech created EduFLEX: The Solution for Hybrid Classrooms (see spec sheet). It’s an affordable, scalable, easy-to-implement way of bringing a unified communications platform to almost any space, even ones without an existing AV infrastructure. To see how Pepperdine University has put EduFLEX to use, read our case study.
A unified communication platform utilizing virtual USB PTZ Cameras
EduFLEX will help you distribute your audiovisual content in a way that brings true unified communications capability and flexibility to the classroom. Virtual USB Drivers allow up to 5 IP based cameras to be utilized as though they were connected by USB. Moreover, as a UC solution, EduFLEX is capable of supporting your existing video conferencing platform. That means no disruption for students, or for your faculty, because there’s almost no learning curve with EduFLEX. From day one, it allows instructors to focus on teaching rather than technology. To learn more about how higher ed institutions can use technology to thrive in uncertain times, download our EBook, Pandemic 101.
Preconfigured for immediate use
EduFLEX incorporates a PTZ camera, microphone system, DSP, PoE switch and interconnect cables in two preconfigured formats. Choose from a portable system that incorporates all components in a rolling case, or a desktop or rack-mountable system with all components built in. The EduFLEX spec sheet makes it clear: Non-experts can set up both systems in minutes simply by plugging in an HDMI cable and setting up the camera. EduFLEX’s plug-and-play design makes this hybrid learning solution economical to purchase, easy to install, and inexpensive to maintain.
Convenience across classrooms
EduFLEX offers all the benefits of unified communications without all the hardware that used to come along with it. Free from the rigidity of complex, hardware-based systems, colleges and universities can deploy EduFLEX in a vast range of spaces. In addition, its simplicity and ease of operation enable multiple instructors to use the room without compromising their individual teaching styles. How does EduFLEX perform in real life? Read our case study about Pepperdine University’s deployment of EduFLEX in nearly 100 environments across five campuses.
