EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR TELE-CLASSROOMS AND STUDIOS

TeleClassrooms Equipment

Integrated LCD Encasement

The Classroom LCD screen is a unique combination of required accessories. It is an all inclusive single piece architecture. It contains the main LCD screen. This screens normally vary the size of about 46-55 inch. These LCD screens are encased with digital cameras and other audio capturing devices and speakers as well. The screen is touch sensitive and can detect movements of digital marker pen or even movements of a human finger on it. The classroom software detects the signals and transmit them to the central server to be distributed to other connected screens. The computer integrated inside the LCD encasement manages the coordination among all the equipments including connectivity from the router.

There is a special wall-bracket which holds the Large LCD Screen encasement comes along with the pack. This enables the TeleClassroom Franchisee to unpack a bundle of equipment and quickly assemble them together to get the classroom up and running. Fixing the equipment in a TeleClassroom is as simple as unpacking and mounting the LCD encasement onto the wall-bracket and inserting the power cables and data connectivity. The technicians at the Central HUB can configure the system and enable it to work form the next 30 minutes time. This avoids the hassles related to installation of classroom  equipment in any of the TeleClassrooms.

 

Administration System Software

A Linux operating System based stand-alone computer system takes care of the administration of the TeleClassroom. It also is the touch point for the students and employees attendance management software system. Photographs of the Students are captured and stored along with their registration details at the time of admission. A Finger Print Scanner (FPS) is attached with the computer. This FPS is connected to the server which is kept in the Central HUB. Once students  register with the TeleClassroom, their left and right thumps are scanned and updated with the central database at the HUB. As they come for the classroom sessions, they simply keep their thump on the FPS and their attendance will be marked on the central server  database. The central server database allows the students to walk in any classrooms and attend to the classroom session as long as he had enrolled for the session. This facilitates students to attend classroom sessions even if they travel to different locations (as long that locations have TeleClassrooms)

 

Studio Equipment

A cluster of Camera, Intelligent Digital Board (IDB), Desktop Capturing and Sharing System, Code-less Audio device and its receiver, inbound audio  Speakers etc are the equipment set up in a Studio. A uniquely designed stand holds the entire equipment in unison. This unique studio equipment design and pattern enables studio to be set up in a room as small as 50 sq. ft.

Third party developed 'Smart Board Software Systems' can also be integrated with the studio. This software system provides Teachers great flexibility to incorporate latest teaching tools in their course delivery methodology.

The Application Computer System (ACS) is the brain behind the entire activities in the Studio. ACS manages the communication forwards to the Core  Application Management Software in the Technology HUB. ACS in the studio works on a Linux based server.

Apart from the equipments, what contributes to the studio set up is the back drops and the acoustic arrangements. The visible area for the camera is  decorated with well designed back drop. Ample lighting is another key area. Also the room needs to be sound proof. A temperature controlled sound proof room with proper lighting is the basic necessity for a studio. Though it can be set up in a small room of about 50 sq. ft, the ideal size of a studio room would be about 100 to 150 sq. ft.
