Bringing Classroom Media Together

Minicom Advanced Systems have introduced CLASSNET Twist, a control system for computer classrooms to provide high-resolution screen transfer over traditional CAT5 UTP cable. Using internal PCI cards that interface with keyboard, video and mouse hardware, the system provides an alternative to bulky interfaces and RGB cable for controlling multimedia classrooms.
