Let’s face it, time is not kind to us (unless you’re George Clooney), and it’s certainly not kind to electronics in our schools. What used to be start-of-the-art closed circuit systems are now looking and feeling tired and limited. Lately, we’re running into schools looking to stop investing in their older system and looking towards the future with Live Streaming.
If your classrooms already utilizes internet connectivity with a screen, live streaming is an excellent tool for your school. Here are some reasons why...
Since your classroom is already connected to the web, there are no additional cables to run or upgrade.
You can easily live stream in High Definition. Most coaxial systems are still using Standard Definition system which is only 480x720.
With a portable encoder, you can now stream live from virtually anywhere on your campus that has internet nearby or WiFi. Easily live stream from any admin office or classroom.
Since streams are automatically recorded on a VOD (video-on-demand) system, any of your classes can access the previously streamed events (morning announcements, awards ceremony, student-run events, etc).
Viewers can easily access the live streams or VOD library from their smartphones, iPads, or computers.
It will cost less to have a live streaming system than to replace many of the components of your existing closed circuit system.
