Independent K-12 Schools

In today’s complex learning environment,  K-12 (Kindergarten, elementary and high schools) solutions must keep both on-site and remote learners connected and engaged. LightWerks designs and installs easy to use audiovisual learning solutions for the K12 education market that bring the riches of collaboration and multimedia into the classroom. Through interactive whiteboards and displays, SMART Boards, sound, and video, our K12 classrooms are designed to support 21st Century learning and assessment, supporting information and communications skills, thinking and problem-solving skills, interpersonal and self-directional skills, and digital technology and communication skills.  LightWerks specializes in partnering with schools to design and integrate state of the art hybrid K-12 education technology. Through our partnerships with key industry leaders, we are able to deliver dynamic, reliable technology to a variety of environments. We can categorize the spaces in the K-12 arena by a variety of room types. Below you’ll find a description of the most common room-types, what they include, what they cost, and what is needed by LightWerks to professionally install appropriate collaboration technology at your location(s).

The modern classroom is a hybrid learning ready, collaborative and interactive space that contains high quality sound and video. These important learning spaces can include both interactive and non-interactive flat panels, video walls, speakers, applications and devices that allow for collaboration (device mirroring), document cameras or visualizers, lecture capture and streaming applications, and video conferencing. Many classrooms also include voice amplification systems to improve intelligibility. A teacher or lecturer may wish to showcase a student’s work on one display, while simultaneously sharing a live experiment from a document camera or visualizer on another. To control the technology across their classroom, a touch panel is often integrated to send content to different areas of the space and manage volume, lighting, etc.

First impressions really count, so many educational institutions make a special effort to have a welcoming, and often impressive, reception area. These spaces usually include at least one large flat panel and a digital signage player to welcome guests and share company promotional information. Many will also include speakers to provide audio to go along with their video content, and some will also include interactive capabilities to allow visitors to interact with the information shown on the flat panel display(s). As this room is typically in use all day and most displays can be programmed internally to turn on and off at specific times each day, reception areas do not usually require any sort of dedicated control system.

Multi-purpose rooms provide educational institutions with a large-scale, flexible meeting spaces that can serve a variety of purposes. For example, they can serve as the cafeteria, training facility, gaming space, or another conference room space for casual meetings. Many multi-purpose rooms are designed and programmed to be divided or combined. In order to support their use, multipurpose spaces will typically need to have multiple displays (perhaps a projector or two at the front of the room, and flat panels along the side walls), properly-tuned audio systems for excellent voice intelligibility and program audio reproduction, and wireless microphones for presenters and audience members. Multipurpose spaces often include sophisticated audio and video-conferencing capability for meetings which may be shared between multiple locations, recording capability for later play-back, and custom- programmed control systems for better control of equipment.
Lighting, shades, and air conditioning control are often incorporated into the user’s touch control interface.

theater-and-performing-arts

Whether it is to display a presentation to a large audience, enjoy a performance by the performing arts department, or hold an awards ceremony, theaters and auditoriums serve a variety of important purposes at schools and universities. High quality audio and video systems play a critical role in ensuring that performers and presenters are seen and heard clearly by every audience member. Multi-functional systems featuring multiple screens, (usually a high definition laser projector and flat  panels along the side walls) intelligently wired sound systems, and wireless capabilities are favored for convenient and efficient use. Theaters and auditoriums will often include recording capability for later play-back, as well as custom-programmed control systems for better control of equipment. Additional components include lighting, drapes and shades, and
air conditioning. A touch panel is often integrated to adjust lights, shades, audio, and visuals.
