Veraview is happy to have been a part of the new Erie Community College (ECC) STEM Building. The structure, space allocation, and up-to-date infrastructure set this building apart from the rest of the campus, bringing science and biology to the forefront of the college’s student demographics. But ECC brought the upgrade to a new level and that’s where Veraview comes in.
Veraview Installers Wiring Projectors
Although academic criterium is forever evolving and still extremely relevant in the workspace, it is also expensive and does not always leave students with hands-on, non-theoretical exposure. We help elevate a college’s investment in the classroom by providing an environment with the best tools to bring that exposure to the classroom.
Duel monitors for classroom content sharing and video conferencing
Screen for content collaboration
For ECC, Veraview installed distance learning tools, such as video cameras, projectors, and screens to many of the classrooms. You often hear of rooms having this technology, but what you don’t hear about is what sets these tools apart. Here are just a few factors to consider: Classrooms typically have ambient light throughout the room and many rooms are too large to have a great video experience. Whether that be a presentation or a video conference. Choosing the right screen that absorbs the variable light fluctuations so that it is visible from any angle in the classroom, as well as having a projector bright enough to cast the image through the light is paramount. A student also needs to hear and be heard from anywhere in that room and a far-end participant needs to be engaging to all the students. Knowing what equipment works best in a specific environment is key to success.
Classroom podium wired for technology
Of course, bringing technology into a room and not making it easy for an instructor to use simply doesn’t work. It needs to be centrally managed in an environment that is conducive to a teaching environment; leaving the instructor to focus on the curriculum rather than the technology. Veraview integrated these tools into each room in a way that supports the specific classroom objective. The ECC Stem building is set up to continue to grow and build virtual resources well into the future. This is what sets a college apart, building student enrollment and creating an increased enrollment strategy regardless of the economy and local restriction. The world is open to the classroom. ECC opened the door with complimentary upgrades to make that happen and we are proud to have integrated the technology into the classroom.
Millennials (and the children of millennials) have grown up with technology. Communicating digitally is very familiar to them- in fact, it’s preferred. Today’s college and K-12 educational systems are realizing that they need to adapt to their digitally-inclined audience.
If you are still using a PSTN phone network (regular phone line from Verizon or the likes) in your business, it is time for an upgrade. A VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) phone system is less expensive and more versatile. You have heard about and might already be using a service such as Vonage, Basic Talk, Magic Jack, etc. in your home, so why not in your business?
VoIP phone systems are not tied into the old PSTN network, making them less complex, easier to manage, less expensive (no copper phone lines to maintain) and overall more functional. These factors make VoIP the perfect solution for everyone (unless you have no internet access).So why haven’t you made the change? Perhaps you don’t want to make the initial investment or you figure, “if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.” This is perfectly understandable, change is tough for everyone but in this case it shouldn’t be. Your IT personnel will no longer have multiple networks to manage, your future wallet will love the extra weight it’s put on and your employees will appreciate the convenient features that can be built into the phones.
With the affordable care act and rising healthcare costs on everyone’s minds, Business First was looking at ways companies are using Telemedicine and Telehealth solutions.
Veraview was selected as one of the local WNY companies that has been successful at launching Telemedicine solutions with our clients.
You can read the full article at Buffalo Business First.
“Veraview LLC sees the potential for a double-digit revenue increase in its telemedicine and telehealth business.
The videoconferencing company, founded in 2000, has clients that use telemedicine and telehealth. According to company officials, those business units, which were about $6 million last year, could rise by 10 to 15 percent.
Telemedicine is when doctors use video conferencing equipment when a patient needs to see a specialist. In rural areas, as an example, this can be helpful as the patient and spouse can be with an urgent care doctor in the room who knows an injury requires surgery. The family and doctor can interact with a specialist miles away to share x-rays and other diagnostic information.”
Congratulations to the Recipients of this year’s USDA’s RUS DLT grant. The awards were announced in March. NYS had 6 grant awardees.
Veraview is proud to have been part of the process assisting two of our clients securing the nationally and highly competitive grant.
Congratulations to Cattaraugus Allegany BOCES and the Seneca Indian Nation Health System.
