Georgia Perimeter College Connects Multiple Campuses with Visix Unified Communications Solution
Posted on Tuesday, October 2, 2007
Atlanta, GA – Visix, Inc., a leading developer of web-enabled communications software, has deployed one of the Southeast’s most sophisticated dynamic visual messaging platforms to Georgia Perimeter College (GPC), the state’s third largest institution of higher learning. GPC campuses in Newton County, Clarkston, Decatur and Dunwoody are now equipped with AxisTV, a powerful visual communications software application enabling multiple users to remotely create, manage and deliver an array of static and dynamic content across the college.
GPC utilizes nine Visix Channel Players in thirteen buildings to deliver content to large-screen displays at all four campuses. AxisTV enables administrators to quickly and effectively broadcast messages – such as student activity schedules, news and weather updates, and emergency alerts – to students, faculty and staff at each of its rapidly growing locations for improved organization communications.
“It’s important to us to provide unified communication solutions to schools in our home state of Georgia. GPC is an excellent higher education venue, and we’re pleased to be able to contribute to their improved communications, which are so essential to the entire GPC community,” states Trey Hicks, Vice President, Sales at Visix, Inc.
The school’s faculty and staff complete a media request form on the college intranet to petition announcements to be broadcast at either individual campuses or across all four locations. What would have traditionally been advertised on printed posters is now displayed on LCD screens throughout the college.
Glenn Sierko, Assistant Director Classroom & Event Technologies Georgia Perimeter College, comments, “AxisTV has helped us to cut printing costs and has increased efficiencies, since the built-in scheduling function automatically removes notices without further user intervention,” said Sierko. “Visix has a knowledgeable sales staff. They had good clear view of what the product could do for us and what it can offer in the future.”
GPC is currently exploring expansion opportunities to integrate cable news video feeds for multiple display locations, as well as the addition of Visix’s Screen Saver messaging option for use in the school’s many computer labs. Future plans also include linking the AxisTV system to their CollegeNET R25® room scheduling software.
