We are pleased to offer the following webinars to our membership. Please keep an eye on your member emails for registration links.

 

In association with Visual Displays

 

Introducing a series of five connected webinars aimed at Campus AV Technology Management & Strategists.  At the end of each session we’ll have some Q&A and will follow up with a feedback survey so we can help develop the content. 

This series will be presented by Greg Jeffreys of Visual Displays Ltd.

Tuesday 19th May – 10.30am – 11.30am – HE teaching space design

  • Holistic approach – the environment and its contained technology as a fully integrated whole
  •  ‘Pre-technology’ emphasis – identifying measurable performance metrics for
  • exceptional student and teaching experiences – tech/hardware agnostic
  • Practical strategies for getting AV considered at earliest project phases
  • Materials to present at Vice-Chancellor level for understanding of scope, reach and impact of AV/IT managers
  • Use for constructive engagement with other stakeholders (architects, interior designers, teaching staff etc) and budget holders
  • Integrated standards approach. Uses WELL Building Standard V2 to knit all UX,tech and environment standards into interlocked and cohesive whole
  • Practical elements to work better with framework suppliers – and help them do better

Wednesday 20th May – 10.30am -11.30am – HE display specification & sign-off. 8 essential steps and best practices.

A step-by-step approach to specifying and procuring the optimal display

  • UX – capturing user needs, developing performance metrics
  • Selecting image size
  • Image resolution
  • Image contrast – its quality
  • Luminance (brightness) – bright enough, but not enough to create asthenopia (eye strain)
  • Viewing distances
  • Viewing angles

Sign off and certification – inspect what you expect
