AVI-SPL Control Room Group Partners with AGC Networks in India

India – To expand our international reach, the AVI-SPL Control Room Group (CRG) has partnered with AGC Networks to jointly pursue turnkey design/build unified communication business opportunities in the Indian Ocean region. AGC is the region’s leading AV and unified communications integrator, but does not have a dedicated control room team, which made the partnership with CRG an excellent opportunity for both AVI-SPL and AGC.

Indian Ocean Region

“Combining the strengths of AGC and the Control Room Group makes for a formidable force in the market presently served by AGC, and we are looking forward to working alongside our new partners and gaining business in the region,” said Sean LaNeve, vice president of CRG. “With the CRG focus on mission critical control rooms and AGC’s leadership position in the regional unified communication market, we are confident we can provide a superior client buying experience and consequently make a lasting and meaningful impression in the market,” he added.

Speaking on this occasion, Vinod Nair, AVP – AV & Video Conferencing, AGC Networks said, “With this partnership we have addressed the experience deficit in the Control Room business currently prevailing in the Indian Market. Our partnership with CRG will get highly specialized skill set in the Control Room Business into India. At AGC, we believe in working closely with our clients to provide unique and highly reliable solutions across various verticals including power, oil, gas and defense, and our alliance with the Control Room Group is to address customer requirements in these verticals.

AMX’s SchoolView Provides a True Digital Convergence

AMX

If you were asked to create a wish list that would guide the future of your school district, what would it include? Would controlling costs be at the top of your list? How about improving teacher effectiveness by making classroom technology easier to use? Or, is your district faced with the need to provide a safer environment for students and staff?

The SchoolView solution is a hardware and software package that utilizes a school’s existing data network, and is scalable to allow for the integration of future technologies. It permits a district administrator to manage a school or an entire district from one location. Additionally, campus administrators and teachers in their classrooms can control programmed features of SchoolView through a small, easy to use touch-panel unit.

SchoolView provides true digital convergence for K-12 school districts, bringing together many technologies that were previously operated independently:

  • SchoolView takes advantage of existing school data networks to streamline bell schedules, to bring networked precision to clocks and deliver audio paging and streaming video.
  • Using an intercom mounted to the wall, teachers may communicate with colleagues in the principal’s office, at the front desk, or any other designated area on campus.
  • SchoolView provides the teacher direct control over audio volume, projectors, DVD players, cable boxes and media center DVRs.
  • SchoolView’s energy management application allows you to quickly and easily automate management of energy-consuming resources like computers and AV equipment.

With SchoolView, administrators and teachers will be on the cutting edge of classroom control!
