Extron NAV AVoIP system stimulates active learning at Endicott College
Extron AV systems have been installed to promote learning at Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts.

When Endicott College wanted to identify the best technology to support active learning classrooms throughout campus, the AV staff selected the Team Building classroom as a pilot room for a proof of concept design.

While its existing AV switching system was adequate, the intent for the new design was to streamline communication within the room and facilitate collaboration over the campus network. Endicott teamed with Integrated Multimedia Solutions to design and deploy Extron products, with the NAV AVoIP system facilitating the interactive learning environment. Each small group of students can connect their personal devices and use a local display. The system supports easy sharing within the local collaboration groups as well as the ability to share any source to all displays in the room.

The NAV system replicated all the functionality of the previous twisted pair AV matrix switching system, while providing enhanced scalability via LinkLicense. The selected LinkLicense upgrade enables the NAVigator system manager to support as many as 48 endpoints. For endpoints, the NAV encoder is installed with the switcher at each station and a NAV scaling decoder is mounted to the back of each display. The NAVigator provides secure, user-friendly browser-based system management and also facilitates advanced system configuration and easy troubleshooting.
