On 7 and 8 June 2018, more than 10,000 attendees from every sector of the education industry across APAC will gather at Sydney’s ICC for EduTech, the largest education event in the Southern Hemisphere. Over two days, EduTech runs three co- located events that include 12 parallel conferences, a free expo, 10 masterclasses, more than 250 exhibitors, and over 220 world-class speakers. Barco, as a leading provider of AV solutions to the education market, will be showcasing their simple, elegant collaboration and learning solutions with their distribution partners, Audio Visual Distributors (AVD) at expo booth #821
AVD’s comprehensive Barco displays will feature live, hands-on demonstrations of weConnect, the scalable, campus-wide, BYOD, cloud-based learning solution. Simple to roll-out, integrate, and use, weConnect offers a clean, browser-based interface for any device, and can suit every space from a small huddle room right up to active learning labs and lecture halls.
Also available for live demonstration will be Barco’s ClickShare products, including the flagship CSE-800 and mid-sized CSE-200. These units started a presentation revolution with the ‘Button’, the simple USB device you can connect to any laptop to instantly present to any screen or display. The CSE-800 and CSE-200 enable connection of 64 or 16 users respectively, and support Apple’s AirPlay and Google’s Chromecast for simple media sharing from any device, to any display, controlled by the educator. With enterprise-level integration features, enhanced security, and installation flexibility, these are a must-see for anyone investing in connected classroom technology.
If you’re looking for a simple, fully-configurable, app-based interface for BYOD education, come and see Barco’s wePresent, the wireless presentation systems that allow up to 64 users to share content from any device. AVD will be running live demonstrations of the wePresent WiCS-2100 base unit, which allows multiple presenters to display from multiple devices, stream video via AirPlay and Chromecast, all while under complete moderator control. Also on show will be the wePresent WiPG-1000 and WiPG-1600W, offering connectivity for smaller groups and class sizes.
Finally, AVD will be showcasing Overture, the game-changing AV control-over-network software that seeks to make expensive hardware control, difficult programming, and expensive AV integration redundant. Through a virtual environment simulated on a remote server, AVD will demonstrate how you can connect to a network of AV devices over IP and set-up, control, monitor, and maintain them without code-level integration knowledge.
“EduTech brings together people working in every capacity from every education sector across APAC, from K12, to tertiary, to workplace learning, libraries, and vocational education,” says Olivier Croly, Barco Senior VP of APAC. “With Barco products catering to every segment of these markets, we’re delighted to partner with AVD to show just what the future of AV in education can look like.”
“We are seeing wireless presentation and BYOD driving the market at every level, from the very start of a student’s journey through to the highest levels of tertiary education,” observes Elkie Van Zyl, Sales Director at AVD. “We are thrilled to able show educators, administrators, and technicians hands-on demonstrations of just how simple Barco can make harnessing these powerful technologies to enhance the student experience.”
