Wireless Video Streaming Is Not Just The Future

Wireless video streaming is not just the future of media delivery, it is the present as well. With modern technology, visual media can be delivered to thousands of people simultaneously, and with minimal hassle. Imagine the impact that such a system can have in a school or business, and how creative an organization can be with the project. When planned and executed effectively, it has the potential to greatly improve student or worker engagement. It can also bring a new facet to the organization, allowing it to communicate complex subjects digitally.

What are the benefits of wireless video streaming?

Schools and large businesses frequently need to deliver content to hundreds of people at once, whether it’s the daily announcements, a new company initiative, or a new course. More and more schools are discovering the power of web-based courses, as they can bring in a variety of media to illustrate various concepts. While organizing a presentation in the past meant rounding up hundreds of students and funneling them into a single room, now it can be done remotely, reaching every classroom at once. This safer and much more time-efficient method gives students more precious instruction time. And these presentations can cover any subject, from history to science, and even connect students to other parts of the world. The potential, in short, is limitless.

It’s even more powerful when put in the hands of the students themselves. The world today is starved for technical professionals, so imagine the competitive edge that wireless video streaming can offer a student. By producing content for their peers, students can learn many creative and technical skills, engaging students in a way that was impossible before.

Why should organizations consider wireless video streaming instead of wired streaming?

There are benefits and challenges to each, but there’s no doubt that the future of the technology emphasizes mobility. While many buildings have legacy infrastructure that calls for plugged-in connection points, this infrastructure is labor-intensive to install and maintain. To set up enough connection points in a school, for example, will take miles of cable. And if there is a technical fault with the system, an expert will have to locate the malfunctioning cable and replace it, as there is no software fix for a bent pin or severed cable.

Getting rid of the cables is a major cost savings element, and makes system maintenance a bit easier. It also ensures better network coverage, as access points can be placed around the building. There is often a fear that the network will offer inconsistent coverage throughout the building, but a knowledgeable expert like Data Projections will know how to avoid this frustration. Data Projections will also ensure the network is kept secure, as it will extend beyond the walls of the school or office.

Homes are already taking advantage of this emerging technology, with excellent results to show for it. It’s time to bring the technology to the professional and educational worlds, and Data Projections can help organizations get started.
