Investing in Distance Engagement solutions has never been more important. The coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated that the need for distance learning, videoconferencing, remote collaboration and live streaming has not only grown, but is likely to be long lasting. The way we learn and work has changed, and new modes of meeting, collaborating, and teaching are now part of the corporate and educational landscape.
Schools and businesses shopping for Distance Engagement solutions may be overwhelmed by the array of components and premium systems on the market today. Numerous technical systems purport to provide them with the AV capabilities they need, but many come with hidden costs. In addition to the initial investment in equipment, more time and money are required for programming and installation.
Only TEKVOX, known for its innovative Drop-In solutions, offers a high-quality, cost-effective range of options to meet the increased demand for Distance Engagement across all market sectors and levels. Only TEKVOX integrates videoconferencing and live streaming in easy-to-use systems that are universally compatible with all popular software.
“TEKVOX Distance Engagement solutions are designed for different use cases and price points, and are easy to set up and use,” says Jim Reinhart, CEO at TEKVOX. “Our systems are pre-programmed and tested before shipping, so there’s no need to pay an additional configuration fee after installation. Our philosophy is ‘Buy it, install it, use it.’ It’s the ideal approach for clients who need to install Distance Engagement for the first time, as well as for those who need to upscale their existing in-house capabilities.”
For clients requiring the ability to livestream content, TEKVOX offers several solutions. TEKVOX’s new 71206-DI Single-Camera Drop-In mobile kit contains everything needed to equip any room with professional-quality live-streaming capabilities, all with minimal cabling and easy setup.
