The global impact of COVID-19 has transformed the higher-education landscape. Facing the threats of limited access to lecture theaters and reduced revenues from overseas students, universities must reinvent teaching models.
Our flexible, easy-to-use remote-learning solution gives students instant access to high-quality academic content on their laptop, phone, or tablet, whenever and wherever they want it. It’s the smarter way to help universities manage infection risks, maintain the continuity of teaching, and stay competitive in a changing world.
Our solution combines Sony’s cutting-edge video and audio products with AI-driven analytics.
University teaching staff can deliver lectures just as they normally do, enhancing their presentations with PowerPoint slides and handwritten whiteboard notes. Pictures and sound quality are crystal clear, and the lecturer doesn’t even have to wear a mic as they present.
Lectures can be streamed live for students to watch, even if they’re on the other side of the world.
Our remote teaching and learning solution is brilliantly simple to use. There’s no learning curve for academic staff who can continue teaching as normal and focus on what they do best. Quick to deploy and easy to scale, our solution is equally welcomed by EdTech teams who can deliver universities’ educational objectives at lower cost and without time-consuming staff training.
Our award-winning Edge Analytics Appliance uses powerful AI technology to enable remote students to see what’s written on a blackboard or whiteboard—giving an even better view than they’d enjoy in the lecture theater.
The remote camera’s movements are controlled automatically, ensuring smooth, professionally framed shots that faithfully track the lecturer’s movements.
Lecturers’ handwritten notes and diagrams on a board are always clearly visible—even when students’ view is obscured by the presenter’s back as they write.
Sony innovation in audio and video ensures students can see and hear with the same clarity and presence as if they’re sitting right there in the lecture theater—or even better.
Our remote-controlled PTZ cameras capture and stream sharp, crisply detailed 4K images. Powerful optical zoom ensures tight close-ups of the presenter and whiteboard.
Our smart ceiling-mounted microphone array uses beamforming technology to capture the lecturer’s words with impressive clarity, optimizing volume and cutting feedback for better intelligibility.
