Press Release: RoomPro Technologies announces new classroom technology solution for schools
Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin – (January 22, 2010) – RoomPro Technologies has released RoomPro ONE, a fully integrated, all-in-one classroom control and microphone system that enables K-12 educators to provide an enhanced audio and video experience for students to improve learning.
RoomPro ONE is equipped with a built-in infrared microphone system that offers optimized voice enhancement and 360° sound reinforcement for full-classroom auditory learning. It also includes a wall panel for simple, one-touch control and notably features a Virtual Control Panel, a proprietary (patent pending) control panel emulation software that allows teachers to operate the system using multiple technologies.
Dean Olds, president of RoomPro Technologies, says the system’s classroom control software offers educators several advantages.
“RoomPro ONE solves the problem of uneven classroom sound distribution and as a result the related problem of uneven learning experiences from student to student. And, with the addition of our Virtual Control Panel, we have found a way to provide educators with more convenient system control and access. Teachers can now quickly and easily operate the system at the touch of a button, whether they are working from a laptop, a wireless table or an interactive whiteboard,” Olds says.
Olds adds that the Virtual Control Panel software program eliminates the need for remotes, which can be cumbersome to use and are easily misplaced.
According to Olds, another critical advantage for educators is that the system is priced with today’s tight school budgets in mind. “Our initial feedback from district decision makers is that this system is very affordable. It essentially can be purchased for what you would expect to pay for a classroom microphone system,” he says.
Olds says that RoomPro ONE has also been well received by school technology specialists because it is engineered for quick installation. “RoomPro ONE includes a one-of-a-kind, all-metal ceiling enclosure that attaches cleanly to the ceiling and integrates the speakers, audio amplifier, A/V switcher and project mount—all in one,” he says.
In addition, RoomPro ONE comes with full audio support and includes multiple audio inputs and one audio output to record lessons and create podcasts to share with others.
RoomPro ONE also includes a full complement of voice amplification options, starting with an IR pendant-style microphone that features an audio input jack for seamless connection to an IPod or MP3 player or an optional plug-in headset that can be worn comfortably around the neck.
