Dear ADENA Partners, this time we would like to share a case study about another Erasmus+ project, this time from Siguldas State Gymnasium in Latvia, completed with Sensuslab (AREC Distributor in Latvia). Continue reading to find out how AREC solutions for speaker tracking, recording, streaming, and conferencing were instrumental in this educational project.
Siguldas State Gymnasium is one of the best and most prestigious schools in Latvia and the wider region, well-known for its brilliant graduates. It sets an example for all other schools by constantly developing new teaching methodologies for mathematics, languages, natural and social sciences. Gymnasium is able to accomplish this due to a number of factors, such as top of the line teaching staff, but also by utilising cutting edge AV technology to record and stream their activities. For these tasks, they rely on AREC.
In particular, the Methodological Center of Mathematics and Informatics recently upgraded one of their rooms. They needed a solution that could track active speakers in their auditorium, and also record, stream, and have conference capabilities. To achieve this task in the most cost-effective manner, a set of DS-4CU Speaker Tracking Station with Bosch CCS 1000 D Microphone System, CI-21H PTZ Network Cameras, LS-300 Media Station and RADA Bridge was implemented. Automatic speaker tracking by DS-4CU greatly reduced costs that normally come with creating a system capable of such tasks, and LS-300 made certain that all sources - DS-4CU, computer, and a general view camera - are always recorded and streamed in a preferred layout. FInally, RADA Bridge is used to take the combined image and output it in a video conference application, where it is displayed as a webcam and used as a microphone.
With their new upgraded auditorium, the Methodological Center in Siguldas State Gymnasium can hold visually striking online meetings and save them for future use.
