A/V Classroom Updates
ITS will be upgrading Audiovisual (AV) systems in the Pafford Building over the Winter Holiday Break. These upgrades were funded by Student Tech Fees and will include 19 teaching and learning spaces. The upgrade will include new LCD projectors, reflective screens, control panels, and sound systems. The new AV systems will be connected to the UWG Network, which will allow ITS to perform remote testing, troubleshooting, and repair. In some cases we will be able to identify and repair potential problems before the users notice.
The upgrades will assist faculty with instruction by improving the quality and dependability of AV systems in the classrooms, and our plan is to have a standard configuration available to most classrooms across campus within seven years. All locations will have a standard configuration simplifying the user’s experience. Humanities upgrades will begin in 2017, and already completed buildings include Adamson, Miller, and the Technology-Enhanced Learning Center (TLC).
