WIFI CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS IN THE CLASSROOM

With WiFi connectivity in the classroom becoming the norm to avoid cabling issues, the question of which WiFi device to use arises.

As a security against theft of WiFi dongles, projector manufacturers have traditionally built-in their chosen technology leaving users to deal with the limitations and operational differences from one brand to the next. InFocus has changed all this with the introduction of a projector range (standard zoom lens and short-throw models) that offers their customers the ability to install their connectivity device of choice – and to do this, hidden securely within the USB, HDMI & 5v-powered TechStation built into the projector.

The concept is simple yet enables institutions to mould the projector connectivity to whatever suits their application – from Miracast to Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick, Android, SimpleShare and other devices.  One can even install an Intel Computer Stick with wireless keyboard & mouse to take interactive projection to another level of usability.

Add to this its whisper quiet operational level and brilliant colour technology and it is little wonder the range is gaining such traction.

The long arm of ADESSA Website

Gavin Smith of Information Technology (Cape) had a surprise e-mail from an AV distributor in Sweden recently.  The person concerned was considering importing the new Micker Pro handheld mic/amp/speaker device as featured on our website about a year ago. He had spotted the article and wanted some feedback on Gavin’s experiences both with the product and the manufacturer.

It’s good to know that the ADESSA website is receiving not only local but also international hits.

Say goodbye to HDMI cables

We all know the misery of having to install and maintain HDMI cables, patch-panels, fly-leads, trunking and more in classrooms and boardrooms for projectors and large TV monitors.  The new SimpleShare Wireless Presentation Solutions from InFocus puts an end to all of that.  SimpleShare offers easy, instant wireless presentations at the click of a button.

Simply plug and play with no software installation and transmit high quality HD data, video and sound in real time at the touch of a button. They work with any HDMI input, PC, Mac, DVD or other devices.

Micker Pro now launched

Following on from the recent article featuring the versatile and easy to use 5W Micker 3-in-1 portable microphone, amplifier and speaker product, comes the new Micker Pro.  This more powerful 10W hand-held device has some surprising functionality, including:

– Charging cradle: Place the Micker on cradle charger & start recharging battery
– 3x levels of volume control
– Echo function
– Buzzer function
– Aux audio input

Says Matthew Lord, MD of Let Me Play, a school level sport & subject training organisation:

Being able to communicate with groups in a variety of situations is key for us and the lightweight Micker & Micker Pro devices make this a breeze.  No longer do we need to spend hours shouting to be heard or having to use cumbersome megaphones.  Great products!
