Create a better learning experience with KVM for education and training

Intuitive and quick access to all learning tools with KVM technology

Educational establishments often operate multi-purpose rooms and spaces that are configured in different ways to suit the educational needs and requirements of a variety of users at various times of the day and week. These require different sets of technological equipment,
some of which may be remotely located, to be configured and interconnected in specific ways to best suit the educational aims at that time.

Some establishments, for example teaching hospitals, need to provide students with access to a selection of remote devices, such as cameras in operating theatres, so that they can view and understand active procedures and learn from them.

Accessing shared devices in the educational environment

With a KVM matrix connecting users to source computers, dedicated hardware and expensive software applications can be shared and their use optimised, leading to efficient and effective resource allocation whilst minimising costs.

Lecture theatres, seminar rooms and common areas are readily configured to re-purpose them for dedicated teaching roles, providing instant access and selection of remote source devices, presentation equipment and student computer resources

Teaching at a distance

Many education and training situations teach at a distance with the trainer demonstrating or showing a technique to students located some way away. KVM extenders and matrix switches provide the connection from the trainer’s resources to students’ workstations for sharing of the most pertinent aspects under study.

In other cases access to areas may be physically impossible. KVM extenders can provide the link between the visual and other sensors and viewers and observers located in safe areas.

A KVM matrix switching system allows instant reconfiguration of the college’s five public performance venues and student rehearsal rooms. Audio and video tools are made available throughout the venue to ensure the best possible recording and transmission of live music.

“IHSE KVM extenders allow us to meet that challenge by providing instant access to
centralized production, editing and recording tools from several locations around the facilities, making it an efficient and straightforward process.”

The production and audience facilities within the university’s media center deliver flexibility and versatility with comprehensive file data distribution and user access to computers to ensure that video content and files are made available rapidly, wherever they needed. This allows video and data of almost any format, including Flash, MediaPlayer, Quicktime, RealMedia, DVD/MPEG, audio and general office files to be accessed wherever the student is located.

“The numbers of studio staff and students vary on different courses and it is convenient that one person can run several task or computers through the KVM matrix switch. In larger productions several people can split these tasks in different control positions.”

A powerful Draco tera enterprise KVM matrix switch system enables a wide range of source devices, including digital post-production and editing computers for the entire institute, storage devices and video servers to be instantly connected and switched to seven different working areas with displays, projectors and high-quality audio systems. A 40-seat seminar and presentation room is also connected to the system.

“The diverse usage requirements of the post-production and seminar rooms required flexible wiring of existing computer and peripheral devices. With the IHSE Draco solution, editing capacity and throughput was increased quickly and easily.”
