The William Gates Computer Science Laboratory at Stanford University, recently completed, boasts an advanced AV / Video System, designed and installed by General Projection Systems. The facility includes a 200-seat auditorium and 100-seat classroom, both with teleconferencing capabilities. Classrooms contain Ampro 7200 LCD projectors. Above the audience are six 27" monitors facing the lecturer, for interaction with remote students. Classrooms are networked to this facility via fiber optics, with Extron amplifiers and interfaces providing signal conditioning and distribution. A simplified push-button panel from AMX accesses basic source selection while more complex switching is performed by trained operators via an AMX-EL touchscreen. Technical staff from General Projection Systems also trained staff to use the facility. General Projection Systems, Altamonte Springs, FL, (407) 260-5511.

With the sudden increase of the virtual campus, the number of vulnerable endpoints has expanded exponentially. This new normal calls for security resilience--the ability to protect the integrity of every aspect of the system and withstand unpredictable threats or changes, and then emerge stronger. Districts must embrace multi-layered endpoint security solutions and the latest technologies, such as unified platforms and extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities, in order to protect their networks.
