INTRODUCTION:

acadiaCRS_HuddleRoom_Mobile_CartThe Problem: Acadia University was looking for a way to connect multiple classrooms and campus's together using Zoom.US. Zoom.US was catching on so quickly with both faculty and staff they Acadia needed to find a way to provide High Quality USB video conferencing equipment between classrooms. Without a budget to install video conferencing equipment in every room. They decided to build (2) Mobile video conferencing carts. One Dual Display and one Single Display video conferencing cart model. 

The Solution: Knowing Zoom.US will handle both single and dual display installations Acadia started with a super fast Mac Mini for the brains of the operation or "Soft Codec". They selected VFI's MC-1000 video conferencing cart made with stainless steel durable material and features two easy to use handles which enhance mobility. For the camera they chose the HuddleCamHD 10X for Optical Zoom, Presets, and 1080p video quality. The microphone solution chosen was Phoenix Audio Quattro 3. For a complete list of components see
