Extron AV over IP solutions deployed at University of Texas

The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) recently decided to upgrade its AV systems within the rehabilitation sciences complex, a space used for specialised rehabilitation health services training and nursing studies.

The original analog AV systems were replaced with an all-digital solution, and featured products from Extron.

Each active learning multipurpose room includes two instructor lecterns, five student team stations with a 75" interactive touch display, and a front-of-room projection system with a 165" screen. Sources range from university servers and Apple TV to PTZ cameras, a PC within the instructor lectern, and AV connectivity for personal devices at each station and lectern.

Students are also able to annotate directly on a presentation at their station and save the screen with their notes for later review. Content from any source can be sent to one or more of the display devices over the university network using the Extron NAV pro AV over IP system.

NAV 1G encoders and scaling decoders are integrated into each station and instructor lectern. To manage the NAV endpoints, the NAVigator system manager is installed within the primary lectern, enabling any faculty member to customise content selection and presentation.

Mike Pitcher, director of learning environments for UTEP, concluded: “Extron was able to facilitate and support our needs to make the audio visual system fit the complexity of the teaching and learning pedagogies.”
