UVA Darden Interactive Hyflex
The Client: UVA Darden School of Business
Location: Charlottesville, VA
Project Details: State of the art hyflex interactive classrooms with remote student or professor capabilities
The client wanted to be able to host remote students and faculty within an interactive classroom environment and still retain the high level of quality that the UVA Darden School of Business was known for.
Code3AV’s custom solution integrated a fully automatic camera switching and tracking system with video call integration for remote participants. Using auto tracking pan, tilt and zoom cameras and ceiling array microphones, Code3Av was able to create a system that always focused the cameras on the person speaking - including the professor, local students, remote students or even remote presenters. Everyone in the classroom and on the video call can clearly see and hear what is being said both locally and remotely. These classroom systems create a hybrid solution for remote and local participants to learn together regardless of distance or limitations due to the current pandemic. It was a rewarding experience to assist Darden with this initiative. UVA is not afraid to push the edges of current technology to achieve the quality results they need.
