AVer Information Inc. USA, the award-winning provider of video collaboration solutions and education technology solutions, today announced that its Pro AV IP streaming cameras work with Echo360 to record video directly into the popular higher education video platform, allowing faculty, students, and administrators to easily manage, share, and engage with academic video content.
“Video is an immersive component of the higher education experience from lectures and distance learning to training and communications,” said Andy Teoh, Director of Product Management, Pro AV, AVer Information Inc., Americas. “As a leader in higher education video platforms, Echo360 paired with the auto tracking and live streaming capabilities of AVer Pro AV cameras enable exciting possibilities for our customers.”
With Echo360 IP camera support, instructors can now use any AVer Pro AV camera that supports RTSP streaming to record video in the Echo360 platform. Cameras connect to the Echo360 platform using the college or university network, eliminating the frustration of requiring HDMI cables — which often limit the location and positioning of a camera.
Once video is recorded, faculty, administrators, and students can use the Echo360 content management system (CMS) to create, manage, and share video content for online and hybrid learning. Instructors can also use Echo360’s popular analytics platform to measure student engagement with the video by, for example, tracking how often and how long videos are being viewed term-to-term.
“Video has become an essential part of the classroom with the dramatic growth of online learning and increasing use of multimodal teaching strategies. This is creating new demand for tools that make it easier for instructors, administrators, and students to use video to support teaching and learning,” said Fred Singer, founder and CEO of Echo360. “By ‘cutting the cord’, institutions can create more engaging, interactive classrooms that better meet the needs of today’s students and faculty.”
