Key AV Trends that Will Shape The Future of Education

Back Tracking AV Trends in 2019

Ramya Chatterjee

As 2019 draws to a close, let’s reflect upon some of the interesting and eventful happenings in the audiovisual technology and collaboration sector. The industry, in general, witnessed several high-level mergers and acquisitions, the emergence of new-age technologies, and an avalanche of new products from both big and small enterprises inundating the market. Some of which made headlines, a few of which were long forgotten. In this article, I’ll take you through how AV tech impacts education and a few key trends that’s going to bring about the much-awaited change.

The Future of AV in Education

Education has forever been at the focal point of the AV industry. Lately, there’s been a lot of stress for a unified solution for classrooms. Keeping in mind the high-cost and highly complex AV integrations in schools and colleges, the focus will be on providing an end-to-to-end solution for education spaces.

It is highly anticipated that the AV trends for the coming year will witness consolidation in the digital interactive whiteboard and collaboration board segment. Over the last couple of years, one of the most prominent developments in classroom technology has been the rapid adoption of interactive whiteboards and is now the most commonly used piece of AV classroom technology. Schools, however, are slowly moving towards flat panel LED displays. LED panels are growing in size, shrinking in depth, and are offering features and picture quality not though possible with projectors. Preferred for their bright backlighting, LED’s don’t need specific light conditions to operate. But as one new tech replaces the other, the emergence of diverse interactive solutions are slowly replacing projectors and interactive whiteboards across educational institutions and workspaces. Like in 2019, education AV trends in the coming year are also anticipated to undergo a paradigm shift. But what is this shift and where is educational AV poised to move from here?

The Path Forward for Educational AV

With schools moving their content into the cloud, and students toting more devices than ever, educational AV is poised to be more important than ever before. The industry is expected to see ever-more wireless connections and devices that retrofit the existing setup.

One such equipment recently launched at Didac India is Galileo One by Cybernetyx. It’s a All-in-one wireless interactive teaching system for displays with built-in AI powered LMS. It fits on top on any flat panel / TV and can turn it into a full-blown touch interactive teaching device. It’s quite amazing to see where educational AV is moving to, considering this tiny device not only has a range of teaching tools but also eliminates the need to buy content.

Teachers get access to free cloud-based content which can be shared with students at their discretion. What amazes me the most is that there’s hardly any upkeep required, it’s environment-friendly, cost-effective and a complete, end-to-end scalable solution.

The Bottom Line

Ultimately, the future of audiovisual technology in education rests with educators. The best technology in the world will fail in the classroom if it does not meet teaching goals. The Galileo One is a stunning example of tech in the classroom that’s bound to be a key enabler of superior learning outcomes for every educational institution. In a fast-moving, dynamic environment, staying abreast of what’s possible today, and what might be possible tomorrow, is essential.
