Atlona Empowers Learning in the Classroom with Audio and Video Solutions

2022 has been an important year for the education sector worldwide, especially for Latin America, as it meant the return of students to face-to-face or hybrid models. This was followed by an increased demand for technological solutions for video collaboration and videoconferencing to enhance the development of classes at all educational levels.

For Atlona this trend represented a significant increase in the demand for Wave, its wireless collaboration solution, which is also reinforced with high-resolution videoconferencing solutions. Wave has been designed to allow several students to connect with the teacher on the same screen and present content simultaneously, promoting teamwork and the development of new ways of managing the class, using technology as a learning tool.


Wave also offers wireless connectivity for various devices, with ease of use regardless of the operating system they use. In addition, it requires no intermediate software, no adapters, and no wires or buttons. In addition, special features such as the display of multimedia content and online platforms such as YouTube can be displayed from the same device, allowing content to be shown from other devices and extending the Internet signal to other connected terminals, thanks to its dual access point-type functions.

“Solutions like Atlona’s Wave are not only a tool inside the classroom, but they are starting to become part of the educational process, which is one of the great challenges worldwide. What we are looking for is a real convergence between the student, the teacher, the technology, the space (classroom), and the content or curriculum. All this is achieved with the correct use of technology, according to the needs and requirements of each educational level,” says Mauricio Escobar, Atlona’s Channel Account Manager for the Caribbean and Latin America.

During the pandemic, educational institutions were forced to adapt to the technological tools available to them at the time in order to continue their work. Now, with the experience they have gained, schools and universities are redefining their needs and opting for solutions designed to enhance distance education. The challenge for the sector lies not only in technological adoption but also in each person’s capacity to innovate and the skills they can demonstrate in the face of new technologies.

Another outstanding solution from Atlona is the audiovisual distribution over IP networks. “We have the physical infrastructure of Panduit, which added to the line of OmniStream AV, a platform designed to distribute and manage video signal 4K format, audio, and control through a standard Gigabit network, we manage to send video from one point to another regardless of the distance. And why is it recommended that the video is wired? Because it significantly improves availability compared to wireless solutions, significantly reducing communication latency,” says Mauricio.

Public education has had a harder time adopting technologies, and this is not only due to a lack of resources but also to the digital education literacy process. Geographical problems in many countries in the region make the arrival of technology more difficult; however, it can be achieved, but for this change to take place, the manufacturer, the integrator as well as the educational institutions, and local governments must work together to contribute to digital literacy and adapt educational designs to the new technological trends.

Atlona’s recommendation is to continue training and updating teachers so that they understand the new technologies, have the necessary technological tools to improve their teaching systems and improve learning methodologies under these platforms.
