LightWerks Partners with Stanford University to Build First Distance Learning Classrooms on Campus

Leading research and teaching institution, Stanford University, aspired to reimagine classrooms through the integration of state-of-the-art distance learning spaces.  In  partnership with LightWerks Communication Systems, the university began its standardization with a proof-of-concept room in the Lathrop Building.  The new presentation technology features intuitive touchscreen interfaces, improved sound and lighting, and a space-saving profile for equipment stacks.


The Stanford distance learning classroom design is based around the QSC Q-SYS platform, which includes IP cameras focusing on both the lecturer and students, speakers, and a simple to operate touch panel. Sennheiser intelligent ceiling microphones are used to pick up all classroom audio. A Heckler wall mounted rack makes it easy for instructors to connect their individual devices to the IP cameras and intelligent ceiling microphones via HDMI and USB-C connections.  Additionally, LightWerks ensured that Mac OS users also have the option for wireless presentation via Apple TV.

The distance learning enabled classrooms at Stanford enable the university to best prepare and educate their diverse student body. LightWerks specializes in adapting teaching and learning environments to create flexible and dynamic learning spaces.  Contact us to learn more.
