When West Chester University officials wanted to adapt the virtual learning model, they turned to IMS Technology Services to develop a solution that simulated or improved personal learning the most. IMS evaluated several options and eventually developed and implemented a system around the CV610-UB USB PTZ camera from Marshall Electronics.
“Classrooms at WCU are designed and built for personal learning and need to be adapted to become a virtual learning environment,” said William Keely, IMS technical consultant. “The main factors in choosing the CV610-UB by IMS were the degree of flexibility, ease of use and excellent image quality. We’ve been identifying Marshall cameras for years and knew it would be the perfect solution for this program. “

The Marshall PTZ is located in front of the instructor’s chair or workstation using a camera ceiling socket. These cameras start with a wide angle, which allows professors to have more than just faces on the screen. Professors are able to make full use of any classroom area, including whiteboards and lab chairs, to mimic an experience that students experience while studying in person.
Marshall’s cameras work in conjunction with the Biamp Devio conference center. Each CV610-UB camera kit has a USB extension that connects directly to the Devio for web conferencing from any distance inside the room. The camera can be controlled using the Marshall PTZ remote controller or can also be integrated into the touch panel of the control system completely, which reduces the need for remote controls.
“We didn’t want to rely solely on laptop’s built-in audio and video, and instead tried to design a user-friendly web conferencing solution for classrooms and meeting places to offer an online experience that would enhance the quality of our students’ education. reflect. wait, ”said Yuki Yamamoto, West Chester University multimedia manager. “Apart from the high-quality and low-cost solution that Marshall cameras offer, USB integration is very easy, which made our choice easy.”
