At EDUCAUSE This Week? See AVI-SPL’s Advanced Viz Display

If you’re an educator interested in learning about the newest technology, you or your colleagues have good reason to be at this week’s EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, the premier event for IT professionals and technology providers in higher education. The conference’s exhibition, which is Nov. 1 – 2 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philly, creates networking opportunities for colleagues to talk bout their strategies, programs, what’s working, and what isn’t.

When you visit AVI-SPL at booth #2301, you’ll see a Barco cave display we’ve set up for guests, and you’ll learn about advanced visualization and how the technology is being used in higher ed.

About Cave Displays (taken from the Barco Cave Displays page)

A cave display is a multi-sided immersive environment that offers great levels of immersion. Barco cave displays can have any number of sides, ranging from two to six, in any size you want. Furthermore, caves are completely customizable to your specific demands, and can be a fixed or transportable installation with rigid or flexible screens, high or lower resolutions, with active or passive 3D, or even both.

In this map of the exhibitor floor plan, you’ll find AVI-SPL at the bottom left. We’ve got friendly faces there who want to talk to you, demonstrate our value to higher ed, and leave you with a good impression about trusting your project to AVI-SPL.

At the EDUCAUSE event website, you can register to attend. Amidst the mass of people and rows of booths, we’ll make you feel welcome. See you there.

Reflecting on AVI-SPL’s Control Room Group at 15

This guest post is written by Brad Herrick, vice president of the AVI-SPL Control Room Group.

The AVI-SPL Control Room Group (CRG) got its start 15 years ago with the Florida Department of Transportation by designing, implementing, and servicing its traffic management center system.

Over the course of those 15 years, CRG has built a team of dedicated professionals focused solely on support of these special systems. It is truly an honor that our customers choose to place their trust in us year over year; we thank them dearly.

Today, the Florida DOT is still our customer, and along the way we’ve provided solutions to other customers’ critical missions — whether for a utility that powers our country’s most critical infrastructure, protecting financial institutions from security and cyber threats, mission support for military operations, or public emergency management.

CRG has grown to become a noted leader in control room integrations, service, and thought leadership, with just a few examples below:

We are on pace for record-breaking revenue for the third year in a row. That kind of growth happens when you give customers the quality they expect and deserve. So that we can continue to grow and better serve our customers, we are recruiting top talent, along with staying on the cutting edge of industry trends like Direct View LED, digital KVM, CAVE, virtual reality and proactive service solutions like AVI-SPL’s Unify ME™ Symphony platform.

5 Ideas for Display Technology in Higher Education

In this AVI-SPL eBook, created in consultation with Christie Digital, we look at five uses for advanced display technology in the university setting, and why each one matters. The benefits this illustrated paper explores include:

  • Building a student community
  • Research and innovation
  • Collaborative and interactive learning
  • Development of job skills
  • Sharing eye-catching visuals

We also offer advice on what to consider and look for when purchasing display technology for your higher education campus. And we link to our recent webinar with Christie on display technology for higher ed, with plenty of real-world examples for inspiration.
