The 21st-century smart classrooms are overwhelmed by all kinds of new technologies: projectors, computers, electronic whiteboards, interactive flat panels, speakers, power amplifiers, and wireless microphones…When school leaders are busy planning an environment of digital learning, interactive teaching, and smart campus, various equipment has been installed in classrooms, regardless of teachers’ reluctance to learn how to actually use them or the IT administrator’s complaint about the management difficulties.
Q-NEX aims to solve these problems by a Networked Media Processor. It’s a highly integrated equipment designed for classroom devices’ centralized control, AV distribution over IP, and live streaming on a unified platform. Using the school’s existing network, Q-NEX offers IT admin remote management over the whole campus through the web or App anytime and anywhere.
Here’s a typical school day scenario: before the class begins, the teacher needs to turn on the classroom devices one by one and wait for them to be ready for use. During the class, he will probably be troubled by switching the display content between the visualizer and his laptop. After the course is over, the classroom is often left unattended with lights and the projector still on, and the school IT admin has to run over the campus to ensure every device is turned off properly.
With Q-NEX Networked Media Processor in the classroom, the teacher can easily power on all the devices (lights, air-con, classroom TV, interactive display, projector, and electronic screen) by simply one touch on the desktop control panel, or tapping his ID card. Besides local control, the IT admin can also set scheduled tasks through a web-based Q-NEX Console or App to power on/off devices for all the classrooms.
What’s more, as a convergent AV/IT solution, Q-NEX also enables ad hoc and scheduled AV over IP distribution to classrooms. For example, the school IT admin can customize the school bell tone and schedule the ringing time, or even make a playlist of school music to be broadcast to different groups of classrooms during lunch break. Another highlight is live streaming to classrooms. Instead of gathering in the auditorium, students can watch the live speech from the principal on the classroom TV for any public announcement.”
