“Kudos to the Actis team in setting up two high-quality lecture halls, one at ISB Mohali campus, and the other at ISB Hyderabad campus. We are very impressed with the technical capabilities and the level of commitment displayed by Actis and would like to thank them for their outstanding work.“
The management wanted to test the viability of building a pair of distance learning classrooms offering distance learning courses by connecting a lecture hall in Mohali with a lecture hall in Hyderabad using video collaboration technology as an enabler.
The solution put forward by Actis was highly collaborative and interactive. The team set up 3 Polycom Group-500 series codecs with 3 cameras to capture different angles in both classrooms. Sound was optimised by setting up 10 Audix ceiling microphones with Biamp Digital Signal Processors (DSPs), as well as wireless microphones for the faculty. Presentations were enabled by installing 3 Epson high-brightness HD projectors with motorised screens.
ISB was looking at using video conferencing to collaborate seamlessly across two locations. They wanted a solution connected through technology to enable distance learning between Hyderabad and Mohali campuses. The result is two unique 35-seater classrooms at different locations, but connected through technology. This helps save travel time and costs for faculty, while ensuring smooth learning interaction with students.
