eVision Delivers Broadcast and Video on Demand to Classrooms

RM Education has launched a new digital media delivery system called RM eVision, a system that's designed for both broadcast and video on demand. The company also debuted a classroom audio system called RM SecureAudio.


RM's classroom audio enhancement system, RM SecureAudio.

RM eVision is built around a media server that, according to the company, automatically identifies the devices on which end users are viewing video and delivers both a player and content in an appropriate format for those devices, including Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux systems. Some features include:

  • Support for centralized media viewing via a set-top box;
  • 1080p high-definition output;
  • H.264 encoding;
  • Video encryption; and
  • Tracking of media to detect which video were viewed, by whom, and for how long.

RM has also launched a new classroom audio enhancement system called RM SecureAudio. It includes a 50 watt amp and teacher microphone, with support for teacher control of a secondary mic, including volume control. The system also incorporates a security feature that allows teachers to press a button to signal an emergency situation.

Further information about both systems can be found here.
