Thus, a highly innovative solution came to light. The space would transition into a fully collaborative and immersive education experience for both instructors and students, utilizing the BYOD infrastructure already established, and now with the added weConnect virtual classroom software and a video wall that foster engagement from remote students with a perspective and experience as if they were a part of the physical classroom.
One of the biggest challenges within the space was the integration of high-quality, two-way audio from the classroom to the remote students and vice versa.
Vistacom installed speakers and microphones, both in the ceiling and at each pod, integrated through a digital signal processor (DSP) to facilitate crystal-clear audio conferencing.
Using advanced audio features like out-of-bounds pick-up rejection, Vistacom was able to essentially create an audio “bubble” over each pod to keep the sound as isolated as possible within each working group.
