on Wednesday 1 March (from 10:00 to 16:00), we've been asked to have a demonstration of the very new Hush Pod from TK Team.


Launched for 2017 the TK-Team HushPod is an acoustically controlled meeting place and study area.
It's suitable for any space where it may be a little noisy.
Come along to the University Library to view and experience the HushPod and see how it might work for areas across the University.

We've been busy over the last week or two putting in some updates in some of the classrooms.

In 8W1.28, we've upgraded each of the individual workstations to have a micro PC on each one.

8W1.28 - 6 workstations & Tutor station

Each controller now has a 'PC' selection button, which will change the display to the built-in PC.

We are working on the Tutor station over the next couple of weeks, to enable a collaboration box, so that the box content can be shared in the rooms to and from each workstation.

Please contact us if you'd like to know more.


8W Teaching Rooms - New AV equipment functions

📥  Design Build Advise, Equipment, Furniture, News, Systems

Over the summer the AV equipment in the classrooms has been renewed, and the rooms refurbished.

There are quite a few new inclusions:

Most of the lectern tops follow this design below - Where there is a preview monitor in the upstand. This will show you what is coming out of the projector, and displayed on the projection screen.

The PC monitor is also a touch screen - and also has a pen stylus (to be able to write on the screen) which slides in and out of the bottom corner of the screen.



Inside the lectern, there are some more changes.....
Each lectern now has the whiteboard accessories stored in a tray inside the lectern:


On the lectern tops, there is a full HD visualiser:


The head of the visualier is fully movable (the stem is a gooseneck). The main controls are on the base - zoom, lamp on and off, focus, and on/off.

Finally, each one of the lecterns now has a power socket on the side (under one side of the lectern top), to allow for laptops and portable devices to be plugged in.


There are a set of visits planned for next week - if anyone would like to come and look at the new setups.



New piece of test furniture

📥  Furniture, Uncategorized

We've been given a prototype piece of furniture to test. It's a charging station / standing work zone.

There are 12 USB charging points in the top, and it is either wired or battery operated.


It's going to live in the Library for the next week or two, on Level 2.

If you'd like to have a look at it, and have any feedback, please let us know.
