The Education University of Hong Kong needed a new E-Learning and teaching laboratory to promote interactive and flexible learning styles while fostering collaboration and digital literacy. The integrator, BAP, faced numerous challenges in the midst of the COVID pandemic, but working with Extron, they proceeded in creating a fluid and easily configurable design for the lab. The collaboration led to a solution that utilized Extron NAV Pro AV over IP, an Extron DTP CrossPoint 108 switcher, and various other Extron AV solutions. Extron NAV allowed for cable consolidation, reducing the overall cable count to one and enabling hassle-free lectern mobility, which was a key goal for the team. Despite project challenges, Extron and BAP provided EdUHK with a forward-looking, cost-effective, and user-friendly solution.
“Feedback from user team is hugely positive,” Says Finsom Lam, Project Director, “Teachers enjoy the flexibility to freely move the lectern within the room as it facilitates an active learning environment and the capability to interact with the students. Also, the customized and user friendly TouchLink Pro touchpanel offers intuitive system operation which simplifies control for the instructors.”
Education University Hong Kong had its work set out for them with the timing of their project, but once underway, Extron it was important to the University to build a flexible AV solution but also keep costs in mind. As such, the team was able to use some existing technology and integrate the latest Extron solutions. In the end, the University was very pleased with their new learning laboratory.
