Videoplex is an affordable, complete video
production and broadcast studio specifically designed for
K-12 schools. Students and staff use Videoplex to create and
broadcast television-style, video productions throughout the
school using your existing CATV system. For example, students
can make their own morning news broadcasts, reporting the
morning announcements live and showing segments of prerecorded
tape. Students are trained to use all equipment making Videoplex
a manageable tool for staff, while still providing a rich
and powerful experience for students. Videoplex allows publishing
or "reporting out" of classroom activities to be
shared with the entire school community without interrupting
the daily schedule with a full period assembly. Classrooms
simply tune in to the Videoplex private cable channel to receive
the broadcast. Videoplex is the perfect conduit for the application
of multimedia skills as well as skills gained during regular
instruction, since making a successful live broadcast requires
reading, writing and presentation skills, teamwork, commitment
Each Videoplex is designed specifically for your school needs.
Custom installation and testing ensure that you can begin
to use your Videoplex immediately. Once installed, there is
no need to adjust cables or change connections behind the
equipment, due to the central patchbay design. Included is
an eight hour training and support package that familiarizes
your staff with the studio components and trains a core group
of students to independently produce a morning announcement
broadcast. Videoplex is a complete, turnkey solution from
facility design through staff and student training. Typical
installations include studio and control room equipment that
provide stations for a complete class of students.
Technical features include S-VHS, editing, live chromakey
effects, mixing of up to six video inputs with digital transitions,
titling, dual professional cameras and a crew intercom system.
Professional installation is included. The integrated design
of Videoplex allows any school to have their own video production
and broadcast studio and curriculum that can be managed by
any interested staff member with little or no technical experience.
