New technology additions are often looked at as an expense. However, with a little perspective, it easy to see that upgrading an out-dated system can actually help cut costs and end up costing less than the old system, resulting in a substantial savings for your school or district.
1. Digital IPTV Over Your IP Network
Many organizations are concerned about the analog to digital switch and controlling costs associated with distributing digital TV throughout their organization. With MediaCAST Digital IPTV, you can easily increase channel control while minimizing licensing costs and expensive hardware replacement.
2. Digitize all DVDs, VHS tapes & CDs
With the ability to serve an entire district from a single digital content library, media specialists can digitize analog media resources and eliminate outdated delivery systems. This saves teachers hours of prep time, with the digital library accessible 24/7 from anywhere with internet access, and eliminates costs associated with transporting physical resources from school to school.
3. Optimize existing infrastructure investments
MediaCAST’s virtualized architecture allows districts to utilize previous storage investments and their existing backbone infrastructure to deliver rich media live and on-demand district-wide
