An AV technology company has introduced digital switching hardware intended to reduce the cost of equipping a classroom with remote management, asset tracking, support and maintenance. TEKVOX's new 71400 "Drop-In" A/V line combines the TEK3 networked control system with digital switching hardware.

The 71400 family consists of three models:

  • The 71406 digital managed classroom with a retail price of $2,149;
  • The 71406 digital managed classroom with enhanced audio ($2,825); and
  • The 71424 HD collaboration pod for four students ($1,995).

The idea is that the systems are configured at the factory and require no specialized software. They include the required cables and are ready to install. According to the company, programming and cabling is customized for each room solution, and new installations can be added to the customer's AV management system with no programming or data entry. Software updates take place automatically via the network.
