The prestigious University of Siena chooses Axis for e-learning
“Axis offers a series of essential features for an IT system integrator: optimal light control, even in difficult conditions, excellent image quality and the possibility of integration with a pre-existing system have provided a valid technological answer to our needs.” Fabrizio Di Fuccia, University of Siena Library System Area System Manager.
The prestigious University of Siena, among the Italian universities with the most innovative results in research, teaching and services, wanted to strengthen face-to-face teaching, guaranteed within the area of the existing academic facilities at Siena, with forms of remote teaching that could be used synchronously by the students, offering them the possibility of interacting with the lecturer from specially equipped lecture halls.
After various studies, analysis and comparisons to find a state-of-the-art system that could be integrated with the existing infrastructure and was capable of efficiently running in historic venues that, architecturally speaking, are not optimized for e-learning, the university chose PTZ network cameras from AXIS V59 Series, designed for professional streaming and webcasting audio and video.
Courses can now be followed completely interactively from specially equipped lecture halls, simultaneously with the lectures given in Siena. In addition, the recorded lectures remain available to institutional users for asynchronous consultation, together with the documentation produced by the lecturers, via the university e-learning platform, in this way extending the courses offered and making them available throughout southern Tuscany.
