Casio – Laser and LED-based Projectors – No Lamp Replacement – approximately 20,000 hours of illumination.      

Casio Projectors tells us what secondary schools have to gain from replacing their existing video projectors and models with Laser and LED-based models that don’t rely on costly and often unpredictable lamps to provide the light source…

Here at Casio, we are pioneers of Laser and LED hybrid projection technology in the classroom, driven to bringing the benefits of lamp-free projection to all secondary schools. We are the only manufacturer to boast an entirely lamp-free range of Laser and LED projectors – a method of image generation we’ve championed for over five years, and one we’re completely dedicated to.

Following the launch of our Core XJ-V1 in 2015, we have strived to make lamp-free projection and its benefits accessible to all budgets. This journey has now culminated in the recent launch of six new projector models, which mark an expansion of the affordable Core range and the debut of a new Advanced series, bringing the benefits of lamp-free projection to everyone.

Reliable and consistent

Our lamp-free projectors boast lifetimes of up to 20,000 hours, enabling institutions to equip themselves with an AV setup that will run reliable and consistently time after time. Casio also offers a 5-year or 10,000 hour warranty, giving IT managers the reassurance that replacements can instantly arranged, should any issues occur.

Projectors are well-suited for a variety of lesson formats and classroom environments. With their adjustable brightness, Casio’s projectors can adapt to both dark and well-lit classrooms, making them the perfect tool for teachers and schools looking to brighten their students’ learning experiences.

The benefits of going lamp-free

Since taking the radical step in 2010 of going completely lamp-free and opting instead for Laser and LED projection, Casio has quickly developed into a market-leading provider of mercury and lamp-free projection solutions – and remains committed to promoting the technical, financial and environmental benefits that accompany the technology.

The industry-leading low power consumption of lamp-free projectors means there are no overheating issues, regardless of how often it might be used throughout the day. The cost of running Casio’s lamp-free projectors is minimal, with users able to expect an average 35% increase power saving compared with traditional projection systems.

With no lamp to monitor or replace, maintenance costs are significantly reduced; schools can instead accurately predict the operating costs of a projector over the course of its lifetime. Our Laser and LED projectors can also be placed on timers that will automatically shut them down at the end of the day, saving staff the task of having to inspect projectors in multiple rooms and turn them off manually.

The Advanced series and extended Core range

The Advanced models are set apart by their high brightness of up to 3,500 lumens, 1.07 billion colour reproduction, automatic dimming function and 1.5x optical zoom. This makes them the most effective Casio projectors yet for classrooms and larger presentation areas, such as lecture theatres or assembly halls.

Each Advanced model also offers extensive connectivity options, including a pair of HDMI ports, a powered USB input and a WLAN/LAN network socket, making them ready for use in a range of different environments. They can be easily made to display content stored on tablet devices and memory sticks, helping teachers bring lessons to life and easily share videos and other forms of digital content produced by today’s digitally native secondary school students.

With no reliance on a lamp, the light source in these new projectors will remain consistent across each model’s 20,000-hour working lifetime, with no dimming or fading. This also negates the need for a warm-up period; with the projectors able to start instantly, teachers can avoid losing time at the start and end of lessons.

The Core range comprises our most affordable projectors to date. The three newest additions to the range each boast a brightness of up to 3,500 ANSI Lumens and 1.5x optical zoom, making them well-equipped and affordable replacements for ageing existing projectors.

The introduction of our Advanced series and the expansion of our Core range will ensure that schools can benefit from high-quality, sustainable projection in more areas than ever before.

It is with pride that Casio can deliver an industry-leading total cost of ownership on our products, without compromising the quality of their output. We are continuing to improve our educational technology offering for secondary schools by introducing new product innovations across all areas and furthering the reach of Laser and LED hybrid projection technologies.

Cisco Room Kit Collaboration Special

collaboration-endpoints-spark-room-kit

eVideo announces a new special buy for your collaboration solution.

The Cisco Room Kit includes camera, codec, speakers, and microphones integrated into a single device – is ideal for rooms that seat up to 7 people.

 Intelligent framing:

Cisco is pushing the boundaries with a smart and effortless experience. It’s like having a TV camera operator in the room. Cisco have had speaker tracking in their high-end systems – and now Cisco WebEx Room Kits have it, too. The feature automatically detects who in the room is speaking and selects the best camera framing for that person. “Best overview intelligence” detects all people in the room and selects the best group framing when no one is speaking. If a large room has only two people, the camera intelligently frames those people.

Analytics in diagnostic mode:

Artificial intelligence can be pragmatically applied for resource planning. The Room Kits have a high-performing face-detection module that tracks where people are and the angle they’re facing. The system pinpoints the speaker through audio triangulation using the six embedded microphones. The system also counts the number of people in the room. You can send all this data to a management system for customized applications.

Voice and face recognition:

This is still in beta, but you’ll soon be able to place calls via voice commands and the system will recognize attendee faces and label them with their names. These pre-production capabilities present ground breaking opportunities for both automated calling and content delivery based on a meeting’s participants.

Raising the Bar on Quality and Choice

The Room Kit options both have great audio and video. The built-in microphones capture voice and perform speaker tracking. We’ve optimized the speakers for voice, lip sync, and echo cancellation. And, for the most advanced camera capabilities, we feature a 5K UltraHD camera.

You can deploy Cisco Webex Room Kit in a small-to-medium-sized room, and Cisco Webex Room Kit Plus in a large room. Both options support one or two displays. We think you’ll want dual displays when you see how beautiful the white board looks when dialing into a Cisco Webex Board. Imagine the experience: You see the white-board content in stunning 4k resolution on one screen, connect with people in 4k on the other, and interact with the white board on your laptop or tablet.

Huddle Rooms and Cloud Videoconferencing

huddle-room banner

Make Your Business More Productive, with Huddle Room Equipment, Products and Software

If you haven’t been seeing the productivity you want out of your employees and your business as a whole, consider that the layout and design of your office space might be to blame. In recent years, many companies have started trying to innovate their office designs to pursue the look and feel of a modern office.

In many cases, this idea of a ‘modern office’ results in an open concept design where most employees work side by side or across from one another, clustered together in one big main room. Maybe there are a few standalone offices for senior members of the staff, or a few conference rooms for meetings, job interviews and the like. For the most part, though, the office is designed as an open floor plan.

The Problems with the Modern Office Layout

There are two core problems with this kind of office design, and you can solve both of them (at least partially) by investing in huddle room equipment for your business.

The first issue is that open workspaces, while they can drive collaboration and promote a teamwork mentality, can also create loud, distracting environments where very little actual ‘work’ gets done. There is too much chaos and not enough direction.

The second issue, meanwhile, is that the office’s open concept design means that there aren’t many other rooms for team meetings or collaboration sessions. There are a couple of larger conference rooms or boardrooms, but those are intended for more important meetings—not for gatherings of smaller teams or segmented departments.

huddleroom1

The Benefits of Using Huddle Room Equipment

Investing in huddle room products is an effective way of reversing these negative impacts of an open concept office. Huddle rooms are smaller rooms in an office space that act as less formal conference rooms. They are maybe the size of a traditional office but come equipped with key electronics and software to allow for video conferencing, Power Point presentations, idea brainstorming and more. Best of all, the size of these rooms makes them perfect for smaller group meetings.

Having huddle room equipment and software in your office helps restore the sense of collaboration often lost amidst the madness of an open floor plan office. When your individual teams can regularly go into smaller rooms to have meetings or conversations, it removes some of the noise and chaos from the central work area. It also keeps the conference rooms and boardrooms open, available for larger gatherings.

Because huddle rooms are smaller than standard conference rooms, they cost less to outfit with key technology and software products. As a result, turning three or four smaller rooms or offices throughout your workspace into huddle rooms might be more affordable than you realise.

At eVideo Communications, we specialise in huddle room equipment and huddle room software in Australia. We can help you design and implement a huddle room strategy in your office. We predict you will start noticing the benefits right away.

Polycom EagleEye Director II

Get ready for your close-up with the only smart camera that makes every videoconference a true face-to-face experience.

Today, more people than ever are using video as a way to communicate across the globe.  Traditionally, conference rooms have been equipped with one camera at the front of the room.  While this allows people to still communicate and enjoy many of the benefits that video technology brings, there are some limitations for users.  Using the camera in the front of the room requires a person to operate the remote control in order to be seen up close.  IT teams often set camera presets to help users, but this is often overwhelming, frustrating and time consuming to most average users.  Because of this, most people will leave the camera view as-is when the enter the room.  Depending on the size of the room, this can leave a long bowling alley view for the other participants on the call.  It makes it hard for them to see who is in the room and they cannot pick up on critical body language and nonverbal cues of the presenter.  Many times, there is a need for a presenter to walk around to a white board but unless someone is familiar with operating the remote control, there will be a limited view for the participants on video

eagleeye director2

New technology has emerged that automatically finds faces and frames everyone in the room.  No one needs to use a remote control or do anything out of the ordinary.  People simply walk in and work without the frustration of using technology.  As people enter the room or leave, the camera notices and will reframe everyone in the room for the best view.

Finally, there is speaker tracking technology that goes one step further from group framing.  A person can begin speaking and the camera will automatically zoom in to show them up close.  This allows people at other sites to clearly see the nonverbal cues of that speaker, making the meeting more engaging and productive.  When the active speakers stops the view returns to show the entire group before showing another active speaker if applicable.  It’s a natural meeting experience where technology doesn’t get in the way of collaboration
