North Carolina State’s Hunt Library Continues to Amaze

When the Hunt Library at North Carolina State University had its grand opening in the spring of 2013, it marked another in a timeline of proud moments for AVI-SPL.

SMART kapp iQ Reinvents the Whiteboard

Over 250 collaborators. That’s the number the immediately made an impression as soon as it was spoken.

At last week’s InfoComm tradeshow in Orlando, I was given a demo of the SMART kapp iQ. It was during that demo that the SMART rep informed me of how many collaborators it can accommodate. Think about the value of that in business and higher education, and how it involves those in the classroom or lecture hall, distance-learning students and remote participants.

Write on a connected device and the content appears on the SMART kapp iQ and everyone else’s device. And you don’t have to worry about losing work, because it can be saved at any time. Features include:

  • Responsive touch experience
  • Write simultaneously using different colors of digital ink
  • Natural write and erase features – use finger, pen or palm
  • 4K Ultra HD resolution – glare-free and supports HD and SD content

To bring the SMART kapp iQ onto your campus, contact Erin Minich, AVI-SPL director of education technology, at erin.minich@avispl.com.

A Chicago High School Turns the Classroom Interactive

Camelot Education’s Chicago Excel Academy specializes in helping at-risk students earn their credits for high school graduation. To foster student engagement with subject lessons, the school wanted interactive SMART Boards in its classrooms. AVI-SPL provided and implemented those SMART Boards, and trained teachers how to use them. Watch the video below to find out why Excel was so excited about the interactive displays and how the students reacted.

Quality productions require quality audio processing. Join us for a webinar that shows how Studer and JBL, two Harman Professional audio brands, make exceptional performance possible with their large-scale mixing consoles and master reference monitors.

First up, Rob Lewis will focus on Studer’s Vista and Infinity lines and how they provide for stress-free mixing in environments like broadcast studios, houses of worship, education, corporate and theater while providing aviation-standard levels of redundancy. Rob will give an in-depth look at the Infinity Core and its processing power, scalability and ability to run imported algorithms. He’ll also go over system redundancy, the new A-Link interface, Quad Star technology for redundancy, and the D23m Digital I/O system.
