  • In the following slides we’ll take a quick look at how technological innovation is challenging the traditional approaches to education and communication. We are standing on the cusp of a new era that pushes our learning and collaborative capabilities past the physical confines of office cubicals and university halls, beyond brick and mortar.
  • Beyond Brick & Mortar

    1. 1. Beyond Brick & Mortar Aaron Zuber, CBCP
    2. 2. Humble Beginnings <ul><li>The Earliest Recorded writing </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Originally thought to be Mesopotamian, 4000 B.C., recent discoveries of tortoise shells containing ancient writing have been found in Neolithic graves in the province of Jiahu in Henan (Western China). Carbon dating suggests these are the earliest recorded writings at 6,600 - 6,200 B.C. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The Rosetta Stone – our key to the past </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sorted stories surround the discovery of this stone that was used to unlock the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic and cursive Demotic writ. </li></ul></ul>
    3. 3. Humble Beginnings (cont) <ul><li>The Tower of Babble – Genesis 11 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>God witnessed the tower and said, “This is only the beginning of what they will do; and nothing that they propose will now be impossible for them.” </li></ul></ul>
    4. 4. What’s the Connection?
    5. 5. What is Communication? Encoding Decoding “ A process by which information is exchanged between individuals...” Webster's Dictionary Noise
    6. 6. What is Noise? Encoding Decoding “ Something that attracts attention...” Webster's Dictionary
    7. 7. Communication Components “ 55% of communication is visual, 38% is tone of voice. Only 7% is verbal.” Albert Mehrabian, Silent Messages, 1970
    8. 8. Transition to Innovation With an abundance of technology at the global communities finger tips, what are industry leaders saying? According to Gartner Fellow Steve Prentice, companies must educate themselves on the scope and capabilities of telepresence systems. &quot;Companies should put aside previous prejudices and bad memories of older video-conferencing services and seriously investigate these new technologies.&quot;
    9. 9. Transition to Innovation (cont) Human Productivity Lab, Telepresence, Effective Visual Collaboration and the Future of Global Business at the Speed of Light , 2006 - “Virtually every major Global 5000 company will adopt a technology allowing them to interact with people, no matter how far away, as if they were in the same room.”
    10. 10. Transition to Innovation (cont) Economist Intelligence Unit, Foresight 2020 , 2006 - “Improving the productivity of knowledge workers is seen as the major boardroom challenge of the next fifteen years.”
    11. 11. Progression
    12. 12. Progression (cont) Bolster your efficiency by engaging a solution that brings all three components of communication together under one roof… Prevail Technologies is proud to introduce…
    13. 13. Apples to Apples Them: “One Codec fits all” Most video conferencing data sharing is facilitated by converting content into video then broadcasting (H.239). (Compression is applied regardless of the data type) <ul><ul><li>Converted Video </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MP3, MPEG, PPT, PDF, Screen-Share </li></ul></ul>
    14. 14. Apples to Apples (cont) <ul><li>Us: “Tailored fit – every time” </li></ul><ul><li>Each media type is handled separately </li></ul><ul><li>Shared image or document files are transferred one time. </li></ul><ul><li>Once transferred, the relevant portion is rendered at each endpoint in its original quality. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>MP3, MPEG, PPT, PDF, Screen-Share </li></ul></ul>
    15. 15. Apples to Apples (cont) <ul><ul><li>MP3, MPEG, PPT, PDF, Screen-Share </li></ul></ul>Practical Application: The value is immediately noticed when a shared video needs to be paused, rewound, or fast forwarded. Rather than retransmitting, the VCS only sends playback and timing information allowing endpoints to render the appropriate section of its existing copy.
    16. 16. System Core <ul><li>Visual Collaboration System (VCS)‏ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>High end video conferencing and telepresence bridge </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Fully cross-platform web conferencing system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ability to broadcast high resolution video files </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration with existing video conferencing equipment </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Integration with audio and telephone conferencing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Secure, inside the firewall solution </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Full functionality over low bandwidth </li></ul></ul>VCS200
