PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Classrooms and conference rooms everywhere are being equipped with high-definition multimedia projectors and multimedia gateways such as the Apple TV®, Roku®, and the Google TV(TM) platform. This technology enables students and participants to wirelessly share content with everyone in the room through the multimedia gateway. The old-fashioned podium with a VGA plug for the instructor is quickly going away. Protecting the investment in new interactive, multimedia education and training is mission-critical.
Based on Oberon’s industry-leading wireless access point enclosures, the new multimedia gateway and projector suspended ceiling mounts are secure, convenient, aesthetic, and UL-listed for use in the plenum space. The Apple TV® or other multimedia gateway is inserted into the clear plastic dome in the enclosure door. The Apple TV® is powered, network-connected, and plugged into the enclosure door mounted projector with a short HDMI cable. The door is closed and locked, securing the equipment in the ceiling and providing ideal communication between the multimedia gateway and those devices connecting to it.
Oberon’s new Model 1074 is a 2' by 2' ceiling tile telecommunications enclosure featuring attachment points on the door for a universal projector ceiling mount such as the Sanus Model VMPRI and Chief Manufacturing Model iC-PR-IA1. Projector cabling in managed inside the enclosure, which fits 2U rack-mounted networking equipment. The enclosure is UL-Listed for use in the plenum space, and has openings in the locking door for up to three external 802.11 Wi-Fi or cellular/PCS multi-carrier antennas. A clear polycarbonate insert in the door provides security and IR visibility for the user's choice of multimedia gateway (Apple TV®, for example).
The Model 1074 is one of five new Oberon enclosures for securing multimedia gateways in educational or conference environments. Oberon, known best for its wireless access point enclosures, has recently diversified its offerings for education in several ways. The Multimedia Gateway Enclosure line follows on the company's mid-2012 announcement of a line of NEMA-rated Stadium Enclosures for protecting wireless access points outdoors. In late-2010, the company introduced a series of wall and ceiling Telecommunication Enclosures designed to bring network equipment into classroom or small office environments.
