As universities look to do more with less, they are often finding their solution through AV strategies and investments that reduce overall cost of ownership and drive down expenses long-term. These savings can be delivered through multiple approaches, which will be presented by industry veteran, Jim Pearce, Manager of Campus Media Services at Wichita State University.

Jim will explain how through a simplification of processes, the time of both users and the classroom technology staff can be better maximized. In planning for the next big trend such as BYOD – schools can stay one step ahead and prepare with appropriate strategies. And finally, implementing AV technology that is consistent and low maintenance saves both time and money, found in features such as compatibility, filter life, remote monitoring, new technologies like HDBaseT and lamp free projectors.

You will learn:

  • How and why consistency of design can reduce training, give faculty a no surprise environment and save on maintenance and installation costs.
  • What new product(s) are emerging that reduce total cost of ownership.
  • What is on the horizon for technology on college campuses? And what future proofing you can do now to save money in the future.
  • How you can make IT systems less complicated through reduced system programming,  fewer devices in the signal path and by taking full advantage of the capabilities of the devices in your the system.
