Belkin Earns Double Honors from K-12 TechDecisions for Optimizing Use of Mobile Technology in the Classroom

Store and Charge, and Air Protect Case for iPad Are Recognized by TechDecisions at ISTE 2013 for Helping Educators Manage BYOD/1:1 Devices    

Belkin today announced that two of its recently announced products for education – the Belkin Store and Charge and the Belkin Air Protect Case for iPad – were named by K-12 TechDecisions as two of the Best Edtech Tools for Your BYOD or 1-1 Classroom at ISTE 2013, which took place in San Antonio last week. K-12 TechDecisions included both products in its round-up of 13 tools from the ISTE show floor that can help students manage their devices to stay focused and on track. The Store and Charge helps students optimize digital learning by keeping tablets, laptops, and e-readers organized, available, fully charged, and ready for classroom use. The Air Protect Case offers an ultra-protective, dropped tested, closed-cell foam enclosure for transporting iPads safely in school settings.

The 13 products awarded honors for BYOD or 1-1 learning initiatives were selected for their effectiveness at helping manage devices in the classroom, monitor how students use the devices, or aid in charging and updating the devices simultaneously. More than 18,000 educators and industry reps worldwide participated in ISTE 2013, which featured products that included tablets, mobile device management tools, tablet accessories, and other tools for K-12 education. Many of the products were designed to leverage the use of mobile learning initiatives in the classroom.

The Belkin Store and Charge was recognized for offering a functional and affordable mobile device management solution that provides K-12 customers the ability to store and charge up to 10 devices simultaneously. The station can also store and charge different types of devices at the same time – each with its own charging cable or adapter – without interfering with wireless syncing. The Store and Charge accommodates BYOD environments by using the mobile devices’ own charging cable or adapter to power the device.

The Belkin Air Protect Case for iPad was selected as a best edtech tool for using the same high-grade material that is found in shock-absorbing running shoe insoles and protective athletic shin-guards. The Air Protect Case has been military tested with validated performance to MIL-STD-810G Shock/Drop specifications by a third-party test laboratory. The thin profile fits in most charging carts and is designed for quick, hassle-free assembly, allowing for easy classroom deployments.

“We are extremely pleased to have received this recognition at ISTE 2013 from K-12 TechDecisions,” said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business Division, Belkin International. “K-12 environments can be unpredictable, with students frequently subjecting their devices to less than ideal conditions. So it’s important to have a reliable device management solution, and protect their investment with a case that can withstand the daily wear and tear of an education environment. We designed the Store and Charge and the Air Protect Case for iPad so that students’ learning experience can be easier and more fulfilling. Being honored as one of the 13 Best Edtech Tools for BYOD or 1-1 Classroom at ISTE 2013 is a testament to the care and dedication we put into understanding classroom technology challenges.”

The Store and Charge and Air Protect Case for iPad are among Belkin’s latest solutions designed to serve the growing needs of school districts and educators, both in and beyond the classroom. For more information, please visit: http://belkinbusiness.com/education.

Belkin Introduces Air Protect™ Case to Provide Reliable, Cart-Compatible iPad Protection for Students

Technology Leader Also Announces General Availability of Its Store and Charge
Mobile Device Management System, and Tablet Stage and Stage App for Classroom Collaboration
 

Belkin, a trusted leader of technology solutions for office, classroom, IT infrastructure and mobile environments, announced today the introduction of its newest product for the education market, the Belkin Air Protect™ Case for iPads. The Belkin Air Protect Case uses ultra-protective, closed-cell foam that dissipates and absorbs shock to provide reliable, cart-compatible iPad protection without unnecessary bulk or weight. 

Apple iPads are important, effective learning tools in many modern classrooms that often represent a significant investment of limited school resources. Transporting iPads between classrooms, added to the daily wear and tear by enthusiastic students, puts the devices at risk. The Belkin Air Protect Case offers a practical, affordable solution that provides complete coverage for the edges, bezel, and back of the iPad, effectively protecting it from bumps and short drops. The Air Protect Case passed U.S. Military Drop Testing requirements*.

The new case is available in two sizes for the iPad 2/3/4, and the iPad Mini. It is also available in three colors: black, green, and blue. Other key features of the Belkin Air Protect Case include:

  • Lightweight and ultra-protective
  • Closed-cell foam and innovative air pocket design
  • Full edge, bezel, and back coverage
  • Hassle-free assembly, perfect for large iPad deployments
  • Open ports and buttons facilitate easy device management and usability
  • Front-facing speaker channel directs sound toward the user, not the back of the iPad

“The Belkin Air Protect Case uses the same lightweight, high-grade material that is found in shock-absorbing running shoe in-soles and protective athletic helmets,” said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business Division, Belkin International. “The kid-friendly, ergonomic design is comfortable for small hands, and the thin profile fits most charging carts. It’s the perfect way to optimize technology in the classroom while protecting the school’s iPad investment.”

For a video demonstration of the Belkin Air Protect Case, visit: http://youtu.be/5NMdlUeITdI.

General Availability of Belkin Store and Charge, Tablet Stage and Stage App

In addition to the new case, Belkin also announced the general availability of its recently announced Store and Charge mobile device management system for K-12 education environments, and Tablet Stage and Stage App that combines the convenience of a document camera with the power of an interactive whiteboard. Store and Charge offers an elegant, accessible, and affordable mobile device management solution designed to optimize digital learning. With the ability to store and charge up 10 devices simultaneously, the station makes it easy to keep tablets, thin and light laptops, and e-readers organized, available, fully charged, and ready for classroom use.

The Belkin Stage App for iPad enables educators to sketch and annotate over live video for engaging tutorials. The Tablet Stage is an ergonomic stand for tablets that makes classroom presentations easy to deliver. The result is cost-effective, connected learning that boosts student success.

Yamaha CL5 Struts Its Stuff with Charbonneau on The Offspring Live Recording

BUENA PARK, Calif.— The Offspring is an American punk rock band from Orange County, California, formed in 1984. Recently, the band asked engineer Ian Charbonneau to record and mix an upcoming web release. The recording took place in Warsaw, Poland at the Orange Warsaw Festival held at Narodowy Stadium. Charbonneau has worked with the band for the past five years, recording and mixing live TV, Webcast or Radio broadcast they may do Internationally. His last name may sound familiar, as he is the son of LeMobile Remote Recording Studio owner, and mix engineer, Guy Charbonneau. The younger Charbonneau also works on LeMobile’s Le-Fly-Pak system that utilizes a Yamaha DM2000 digital audio console for live broadcast mixing.

“Doing live projects on the road is always a lot of fun and can be very challenging, not necessarily knowing which console and set up I will have to work with. It is always different. A big part of the challenge comes from the very little prepping time and often without any sound check, you just got to nail it”, states the younger Charbonneau. “In the last few years, I’ve expended my own business in consulting, recording and mixing for artists, managements and labels when doing live TV, webcast or broadcast appearances around the globe. It gives both artists and production teams great assurance that someone is looking out for them. As most know, when doing live projects, there’s only one chance of getting things right. I was excited when I found out for this particular project, I would have the opportunity to use the new Yamaha CL5 digital audio console.”

The Poland set up consisted of two consoles, the CL5 used as the main console and a Yamaha DM2000 for backup purposes, all recorded via Nuendo Live. “I chose to try out the new CL5 even though I’m very familiar with the DM2000. I was quite pleased with how easy it was to get around this console,” says Charbonneau. “Very simple and logical layout, I find some digital console today seem to have lost their logic with too many places to do the same things, busy layouts or too many menus and layers like trying to please everyone. It is often too easy to get lost or make mistakes. The CL5 seemed to have been very well thought out.

As for sound, Charbonneau said he was also happy with what he heard. “It was really responsive; I learned over the years working with our DM2000 and other digital consoles that you often have to exaggerate a little when EQing and compressing. The CL5 seemed more natural. I was also impressed on the integration of Nuendo Live; it worked flawlessly. The Dante networking and Rio rack did great. I would be curious to try a CL5 with Le Mobile’s Fly-Pak. Great job on the new console, Yamaha!”

Visual Surveillance Manufacturer IC Realtime Opens Doors for Integrators to Tap Many Vertical Markets via Verizon 4G LTE Network

Video Surveillance Products Leader IC Realtime Joins Verizon Partner Program

Joint national program opens doors for integrators to tap vertical markets by deploying
custom-tailored HD video surveillance systems transmitted via Verizon Wireless; represents great opportunities for integrators to create recurring monthly revenues

Pompano Beach, FL – May 1, 2013 – IC Realtime, a global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced visual surveillance solutions for residential, commercial, industrial, governmental and educational channels, today announced that it has joined the Verizon Partner program. The move is the first initiative by IC Realtime’s M2M (Machine-to-Machine) Advisors Group, a newly-formed division operating from within its Pompano Beach, Florida headquarters.

Under the program IC Realtime and Verizon Wireless Connected Technologies sales teams will work with qualified IC Realtime integration companies (classified by IC Realtime as its M2M Master Integrators) to develop and deploy custom-tailored HD video surveillance solutions via the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network.

According to IC Realtime’s M2M Advisor Group President Adam Cohen, the types of applications span residential, commercial and industrial to local, state and federal branches of government.

”The program helps integrators branch-out into emerging vertical markets such as remote autonomous solar-powered systems; video over cellular; cloud-based HD-video and data storage; remote M2M command and control, and internet and video redundancy,” says Cohen. “These powerful new offerings will allow them to sell services and build recurring monthly revenue streams previously deemed unobtainable or perhaps unforeseen.”

To help integrators seize the wide range of opportunities that exist, IC Realtime will aggregate talent from its consortium of integration companies, training them in Megapixel IP video over cellular networks, command and control over remote locations, autonomous solar systems, and wireless technology.

“Such a network of skilled connected technology experts can assist the business interests of manufacturers, service providers, integrators, and consumers of electronic physical security equipment,” adds Cohen. “We believe that our pool of M2M Master Integrators will be the catalyst for a global paradigm shift in how security is procured, installed and serviced.”

Useful for the venture will be Video iVAULT™, an M2M cloud-based platform that IC Realtime created to provide live video on demand, without the need for special software or complicated hardware solutions. This platform allows wireless cameras and recorders to send event video and alerts to the IC Realtime Cloud to be securely stored long-term via wireless networks. Additionally, this solution further reduces costs by limiting the amount of video storage devices needed to be deployed onsite.

IC Realtime has also created a failover option for its DVR / NVR systems solutions to monitor in real time, grant access, communicate, and secure environments via the Verizon network. This redundancy feature provides crucial backup when power and internet lines go down. According to Cohen, the failover option is yet another example of previously untapped revenue source for integrators.

For all IC Realtime media inquiries, please contact Paul Muto at 631.849.4301 or via email at paul@mutocomm.com.

Store and Charge makes it easy to deploy and support tablets and laptops, which means less hassle for teachers and more learning for students.”

The Belkin Store and Charge makes it easy for teachers and students to distribute, store, and charge mobile devices in the classroom with additional features that include:

Delivering unrivaled multiplatformity and elegantly styled customizable graphical user interfaces, iRidium for AV and Custom Systems operates on iRidium V2.0.7 and provides integrators the ability to combine the functionalities of disparate and varied electronics systems components into a single, easily managed project. This enables an entire system to be operated by control panels, touch panels, tablets, devices and gadgets, and allows integrators to deliver unique functionality for each location, device or end user to use as desired or required.

iRidium for AV and Custom Systems is now available for integrators worldwide and can be downloaded from the products page within the iRidium mobile website: www.iridiummobile.net/products/native-drivers/. Constantly evolving to meet the demands of today’s hyper-connected society, iRidium products are currently compatible with Crestron, KNX, AMX, Lutron, My Home, Global Cache’, HDL, Clipsal, Modbus, Helvar, Domintell and Weinzierl. Other brands will be added as they are collectively tested and approved.

Designed to be flexible yet functional, the iRidium software package and all of the associated tools are easily operated by individuals with varying degrees of technical knowledge.
