Vancouver Community College required a cost effective technology solution to update their basic classrooms with an easy to use instructor interface. Faced with limited resources to maintain and operate the systems it was critical that the reliability and operation of the classrooms have minimal maintenance requirements.
PJS Systems designed the Tech Classrooms and have installed over 120 rooms while meeting the college’s requirements for functionality and maintenance free operation. Based upon an Extron control system and Panansonic projection instructors now have easy to use desktop control of the projector, laptop and document camera connection, network connectivity, volume control and DVD operation.
Housed entirely in the custom designed desks the system also offers remote monitoring which allows the IT department to monitor such things as projector bulb life and occupancy of the room.
