As technology advances, it's important for schools and universities to adopt these technologies so students receive the best resources in class or remotely while distance learning. Teachers expect reliable Audio/Video devices that set up easily. No hassles troubleshooting unfamiliar electronics—simply focus on the task at hand.
What AV Equipment Should a Standard Classroom Incorporate for Lesson Success?
In addition to the typical TV Display and Touch board, the average class or lecture room would benefit from having at least one Live Streaming PTZ Camera for remote learning and a Presentation Hub or Switch for displaying teachers' lessons. Students can also use this device for wirelessly casting their smart device using Miracast or Airplay.

Another common AV technology necessary for schools is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) device. These KVM connections are represented on the majority of presentation switchers and signal extenders.

PTZ and Auto-Tracking Live Streaming Cameras
BZBGEAR has a wide selection of professional PTZ cameras for education including the BG-VPTZ-10HSU3 and the Auto-Tracking BG-MAESTRO. Both are affordable solutions under $1,000 ensuring a successful live stream with conference programs like Zoom, Skype, Echo360, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams.

Educational cameras should provide the means to deliver your lessons with clarity and accuracy. A big decision to take into account is whether an Auto-Tracking camera is the best option for your situation. Auto-Tracking cameras are amazing, eliminating the need for angle and shot adjustments on the fly. These cameras do the movements for you after the initial setup is done properly.

PTZ cameras not offering auto-tracking require some forethought in how they’ll be operated for capturing the classroom and the instructor’s movements. The most common method of controlling Pan, Tilt, and Zoom functions is with preconfigured Presets. This means you can angle the camera for the desired shot, then simply press a button on the remote or utilize control software like BZBGEAR’s free BG-Control-PTZ program specializing in programmable shots. You won’t typically need more than three Presets. Standard Presets include one for the podium, one for the touch board, and one for the students, but you can add multiple presets if desired.

Distribute Audio/Video/Control Signals Anywhere on Campus over the LAN Using a New or Existing Cat5/6 Cable
The typical structure of a school or university building involves an array of specialty data and audio/video cables specifically installed for connecting devices such as computers, TV displays, POS stations, surveillance, and alarms systems. Prior to the building process, these “Low Voltage” cables were blueprinted in the design for installation to host designated locations and devices. The primary cable installed in almost every location is the Category Cable known as CAT5e, CAT6, or CAT7. The good news is AVoIP only requires a single Category cable so these pre-installed cables can be repurposed many times eliminating the need to run new cables or install special converters.
