means technology can be a deal-maker or breaker when choosing between different universities. For these tech-savvy audiences, technology is a powerful tool that can offer opportunities for additional learning. To meet the expectations of these students, many higher education institutions are now turning into connected campuses where technology – primarily video – is becoming a crucial tool to educate, inform and entertain.
Mobile devices have become an extension of the lecture theatre and are helping to make higher education accessible for all
On-the-go learning is one major trend that has emerged as the result of more video-based communications at universities. Technologies such as IP video have enabled recorded and live-streamed learning material to be accessible from any device, on any network, anywhere and at any time. As a result, mobile devices have become an extension of the lecture theatre and are helping to make higher education accessible for all. Today, it provides students who have other commitments – such as part-time jobs or families – with the flexibility to study in their own time. The University of Aberdeen is a clear example of on-the-go learning, as the university offers a robust educational programme supporting guest lecturers, seminars and workshops. When there isn’t sufficient space in the main lecture halls or classrooms, its IPTV system enables it to stream guest lecture feeds around campus, enabling more students to engage and learn. The School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Surrey is a great example of curriculum activities that would otherwise be impossible if not for IP video. Now, the university can transmit live, up-close footage of dissection sessions in the Veterinary Pathology Centre to two lecture theatres for viewing by up to 250 students at a time, in contrast to the previous approach where only a small number of students were able to enter the laboratory. The sessions are also recorded on the university's server for students to access as part of independent study and are part of a wider strategy to grow the institution's growth and rank in the UK and beyond by offering more flexible ways of learning to its student body. Another benefit of the connected campus is that it enables universities to enhance the student experience. Campus life is, for most students, their first time living away from home. While technology cannot fully replicate home comforts such as mum’s cooking, it can help universities create a home-away-from-home experience and ease the transition to campus life.
Video in and out of the lecture halls, in accommodation and in communal areas is crucial to recreating a home-away-from-home experience for students
The University of Bath created this home-away-from-home experience when it deployed a state-of-the art IP video solution that enables students to access high-quality, educative and entertaining content from the comfort of their rooms. The channels are delivered to 750 rooms and monitored from a central platform, enabling accommodation managers to keep students up-to-date with the latest news and campus alerts and ensure that access to specific content is allocated to the right person. The University of Bath also installed digital signage and menu boards to all the campus refectory areas. This feature is even available in the student accommodations, enabling students to see what’s on offer prior to arriving in the refectories. As universities continue to embrace technology advancements and become laboratories for the development of future work practices, putting video at the heart of education will help students learn more skills faster and in a more user-friendly way. Video in and out of the lecture halls, in accommodation and in communal areas is crucial to recreating a home-away-from-home experience for students. Connected universities are also forming part of a growing trend to prepare their contingents for future employment where multi-modal communication plays a pivotal role.

Our end-to-end solutions enable you to capture TV/video content directly from any source and manage its delivery, as channels or within digital signage screens, to any connected device via your existing network. From education, corporate and finance, to hospitality, remote facilities, stadia and healthcare, Exterity has over a decade of global expertise in delivering complex, proAV solutions.

About us

Exterity IP video solutions are deployed in leading higher education establishments around the world. From live streaming of lectures and foreign language channels, to campus-wide digital signage and student accommodation entertainment, Exterity’s end-to-end IP-based solutions help you to provide a first class educational experience.

Our systems deliver TV and video channels to every PC, display or mobile device wherever there is a network connection, and can support large volumes of content and receiving devices without compromising system performance. Flexible and easy to use, administrators can centrally manage and control the system from one location.

Lecturers can seamlessly integrate video into their study material both during and after class. Lectures and demonstrations can be streamed live to overspill rooms and libraries, and also recorded for distribution as digital libraries for students to access in their own time, on the device of their choice. Modern language students are able to watch foreign language live TV and video content streamed from around the world on-campus and in language labs, as well as have access to a global archive of recorded material. Faculties can also easily customise the TV and video interface, creating a unique and tailored look and feel for each department.

ArtioSign, Exterity’s digital signage and IP video solution in one, makes it easy for universities to create and deliver impactful digital signage screens that provide instant, broad-reaching informative or entertaining communications. Integration with IP video means live TV and video can be incorporated into digital signage screens to strengthen your overall communications strategy as well as create revenue generation opportunities with sponsored content and approved on-campus advertising.

An Exterity IP video system can also ensure your student accommodation meets the highest standards and expectations, with an unlimited number of high-definition channels and entertainment options to attract students and help ease them into their home-away-from-home on campus.

The benefits of IP video extend to the celebration of the end of a student’s time at university: graduation. Universities can stream graduation ceremonies, live or recorded, around campus as well as across the internet to relatives and friends, regardless of their location. This functionality opens up a whole host of opportunities for establishments looking to expand their reach and global collaborations.

Exterity IP video and digital signage solutions enable higher education establishments to offer an enhanced learning experience by enabling students to access the content they want, when they want it, on the device of their choice. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Testimonials

“Students benefit from watching live TV direct from foreign countries as they can hear the language they are studying being used naturally, and learn about that country’s culture, adding an extra dimension to the learning experience. UCL prides itself on being one of the most innovative learning centres in the world and so it was vital to enhance the department with the cutting-edge technology that enables this.” University College London

“Exterity has a proven track record of delivering large-scale, high quality and future-proofed video systems. The University’s Surrey Sports Park was the first facility on campus to work with Exterity, and it went so well that the decision to work with them again to enhance the School of Veterinary Medicine was a logical one. Observing and learning from live dissections is an essential component to veterinary education on our campus, so being able to offer our current and prospective students access to live and recorded footage is paramount for us. The nature of a pathology environment also brings complications regarding access and, at times, hazard-containment, so by using Exterity solutions we are able to give students access to material that they would not normally be able to see. The Exterity deployment has been a big success and we look forward to continuing working with them in the future as we prepare to grow our student enrolment over the coming years.” University of Surrey
