Harrisburg University of Science and Technology has the distinction of being one of the early adopters of eSports as a university-sanctioned sport.

Have you ever found yourself wondering how to generate a compelling customer impact with your AV project designs? Do you ever wonder if there is some other useful addition that could give the client the idea you went the extra mile in their facility communications, but you just don’t have the time to figure out that missing piece? You are not alone. Many designers like you have been looking for ways to differentiate and be more meaningful. Some of them have come to realize ways to think broader.
We have all been there, and visit that feeling regularly. “I have two hours, do I complete the church audio quote, the new restaurant/bar job, or the corporate paging? Which is the biggest? Which has the highest close? I have found myself in this very situation over and over. Deadlines, meetings, and expectations piled up, and all the while you have a steady stream of projects which you need to design fast.
You, your boss, or your clients have invested in the experience of Zoom Rooms. Providing a standardized platform to make communications better every day was the goal. The logistics of choosing, installing and servicing your Zoom Rooms Hardware is not always as simple though. Delays, deployments and design planning can rob you of time to immediately realize the benefits of the investment.

The Alarm bell goes off, three short bursts and the strobes start flashing. This is the real deal, are you confident your students and staff remember precisely what to do? It wasn’t so long ago that you only had to juggle two alerts – evacuate for fire, or move to a shelter for the weather. If students got mixed up, it only took a minute or so to redirect them and get everyone to safety. Intruders, active shooter, lockdown, all clear, fire or weather. Each has its own set of needs and instructions all focused on “where do I go?” The wrong move or a minute’s delay can mean life or death.
You know the situation. If you are putting in a USB appliance such as a camera in a room, and you find out that the cable run from the camera to its destination is just a hair longer than the spec, what do you do? With USB 2.0 standards you had fifteen meters, which was a decent run, but with so many USB 3.0 appliances coming out with a tiny three-meter maximum distance, this has become a common occurrence.
Technology plays a critical role in modern-day collaboration within the classroom. And, it’s even more important for the Georgia Academy for the Blind.

For Georgia Academy for the Blind, finding a product that enhances WiFi and browsing, collaboration, voting and polling, and general presentations, while simultaneously being student-friendly, can be difficult.

The way we consume video has changed over the last ten years. A decade ago no one would have thought that more than half of the video we consume would be on a phone or tablet.

Bishop Hartley High School Increases Student Safety and Lowers Costs Using IP Devices “How do you communicate in an emergency?” This is a defining question that many schools have started asking themselves in the wake of a series of tragedies over the last decade. In response, we have created better plans to account for a host of potential situations. Fire, weather, intruder, shooter, the list goes on. One large problem always remains, however. More plans introduce more levels of potential human error. With these detailed plans, how do you make sure that in any given event the correct information and procedure is followed, without any margin for mistakes?

If you do any kind of House of Worship production you have probably run into an issue with stage noise at some point in time especially if you are using a choir mic set up that has a wider pickup pattern. The over bleed can be anything from the minister talking to someone at the side of the stage to a baby in the first row. There is a solution though. You can use a continuously-variable pattern condenser microphone system to control the pickup pattern and dial the choir in.
