Cutting Edge Classroom Technology to debut at Westminster during AV Week

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Westminster College's Audio Visual Services is excited to welcome Don Rosenberger of Dobil Laboratories, Inc. to campus to demonstrate new cutting edge classroom technologies from Panasonic and  Crestron as part of the college's AV WEEK celebration. All faculty, staff, students and the public are invited to the free event at Westminster's AV Classroom on Wednesday October 16th at 11:30 a.m.

Rosenberger is President of Dobil Laboratories Inc., a recognized, independently owned, Pittsburgh based audio visual installation business. They specialize in the latest technology solutions including systems integration, video conferencing, control systems, sound reinforcement, hotel rental, K-12 paging, fire alarms, and security systems.

Rosenberger will be unveiling new lamp-free projectors produced by Panasonic, which do not use a filament bulb like existing projectors on campus. Instead they use; they use LED lights and lasers. The benefits of this technology are that there are no expensive lamp replacements or untimely burn outs. These units have much longer life spans than typical projectors that require bulbs.

Also, Rosenberger will reveal Crestron AirMedia, a new wireless HD presentation tool that can aid classrooms or meetings by allowing multiple people to connect their devices to the room display over WiFi. They then can present their information from their own personal smart device to the group.

These are technologies that are emerging in the field of education, and Westminster College is investigating how these might improve teaching and learning.

All AV WEEK events are free and open to the public.

For more information about lamp-free projectors, Crestron AirMedia, AV Week, or smart technology, please contact AV at avstaff@westminster.edu or (724) 946-7188.
