University of Birmingham Dubai picks Pacific for AVoIP deployment

DUBAI, 27 days ago

The University of Birmingham Dubai has appointed Pacific Computing to supply and install audio-visual systems across its iconic new Dubai campus.
As per the contract, the company will provide a range of equipment across all teaching spaces and meeting rooms in the state-of the-art building, which is due to open this September.
Pacific said it has worked closely with University of Birmingham Dubai staff to design systems so that the user experience for students, visitors and staff will be comparable to that of the University’s Birmingham campus.
The Teaching and Learning Innovation Zone on campus will be equipped with AVoIP (Audio-Video over Internet Protocol) technology giving students and staff great flexibility – allowing live streaming of lectures and events throughout the Innovation Zone, which includes an interactive lecture theatre, an enhanced IT cluster and  large flexible seminar rooms
University of Birmingham Dubai Provost, Professor David Sadler, said: “Our new building has been designed as an ‘Intelligent Campus’ - embedded with flexible, cutting-edge technology allowing innovative, multidisciplinary teaching and learning."
“Pacific will help us to deliver a flexible and powerful teaching environment in Dubai that students and staff will enjoy. Colleagues coming from our Birmingham campus to teach in Dubai will feel immediately at home in our teaching spaces," said Sadler.
“Everyone – students and staff alike – is eagerly looking forward to moving into our brand-new, bespoke campus building later this year. We believe that, in our new academic home, we will deliver an educational experience like no other in Dubai,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
