Education Relief Funding Resources

With COVID-19 cases phasing out, the impact it’s left on American schools will remain forever, especially as classes transition back to in person learning. To aid in this transition, the U.S. Government recently passed The American Rescue Plan (ARP) to provide educators with resources needed to ensure their classrooms are ready for the post COVID world.

The ARP is additional funding offered under The CARES and CRRSA Acts passed in 2020, which all together create The Education Stabilization Fund (ESF). The assistance offered by the ESF in total amounts to over $190 billion for elementary and secondary schools (ESSER) and over $76 billion for higher education institutions (HEER). The ESF represents a generational opportunity for educators to make strategic and sustainable investments that address systemic inequalities and encourage creative innovation that transforms teaching and learning.

The challenge now is using these funds to create a post COVID classroom that accomplishes the goals the ESF was created for, and deciphering what that looks like for every individual classroom. CCS recognizes this challenge and wants to help you create a modern, collaborative, and adaptable space that is tailored to your classroom’s unique needs. We will work with you to create a plan that responds to your immediate needs, creates a stable learning space, and helps you invest in your school’s future.

Barco Clickshare Wireless Presentation for Your Business

The Barco Clickshare wireless presentation system is a type of gadget that makes it possible for business professionals to wirelessly and seamlessly present content from a smartphone, tablet, or PC onto a bigger screen. This is done through the use of Barco’s screen mirroring technology. Barco’s Clickshare Wireless Presentation System is ideal for use in various collaborative environments, e.g., huddle spaces, meeting rooms, and conference rooms.

What Is the Barco Clickshare Wireless-Presentation System Used for and Why Should You Get One?

These systems play an integral role when it comes to sharing information among people working on the same project. They make it possible for their users to transmit various types of content (apps, videos, images, docs, and desktop) together with audio from all types of devices to TV’s, video walls, large displays, and projectors. As a result, many users are able to seamlessly exchange, share, and present ideas. The systems can be used with a broad range of applications, e.g.,

  • Enabling unrestricted interaction between various users through the sharing of content on a shared screen.
  • Mirroring or streaming audio and video content from any device onto a projector or bigger screen.
  • Connecting a tablet, smartphone, or desktop PC to a TV wirelessly.

Where Can You Use A Wireless Presentation System?

This particular type of presentation systems allows video/audio collaboration in places such as:

  • Lecture halls and classrooms
  • Huddle spaces and huddle rooms
  • Conference rooms
  • Small to large meeting rooms

What are the Advantages of Using the Barco Clickshare Wireless Presentation System?

  1. Multi-Platform Devices
    The system is plug-and-play friendly. This means that the system can easily be used with any projector or display device for quick presentation. You can use any device to display the content that you would like to present.
  2. Multi-User Collaboration
    Multiple people are able to access the system at the same time. This helps provide a simple and smooth wireless presentation capability for all those involved. It is a system that is able to provide great interactivity, making it ideal for use in open-forum discussions as well as in conference rooms, regardless of their size.
  3. Long-Range Connectivity (Wireless)
    Unlike wired presentation systems, this type of presentation system is able to cover a very broad signal range. This means that it can even be used in very large rooms, making it possible for those using it to showcase their presentations over distances of up to ninety meters.
  4. Streaming Over Wi-Fi, LAN or Dual Network Modes
    Wireless systems are capable of supporting Wi-Fi (wireless) and LAN (cabled) deployments. This is in addition to supporting dual network modes. For example, company personnel can connect to the systems via the corporate networks as the invited guests connect to it via the wireless network. This can easily be done without compromising the internal corporate network. This kind of connection is very useful, especially when the presentation system has been connected to the corporate network via Ethernet, and the invited guests are asked to join the employees in a collaborative project.
  5. It is Mobile and Compact
    One of the standout features of this system is the fact that it is very slim and compact. This makes it easier to move it from one room to another as it can easily be mounted behind a projector or a display screen.Even though the system will require a cable connection to the power socket, network, and to the display, all those who will be using it will be connected wirelessly. This means that they will be spared from all the unnecessary clutter.
  6. VGA and HDMI Compatible
    Whereas legacy interfaces are still popular in corporate environments, it is always better to choose a presentation system that can offer both digital (DVI or HDMI) and analog (VGA) interfaces. HDMI displays are considered to be the most effective as they can easily match with the source’s definition.

Should I Purchase Professional/Commercial Grade Monitors Over Consumer Monitors?

When it comes to monitors, commercial grade and consumer grade vary in many ways. Although it is true that consumer grade monitors are typically cheaper than commercial monitors, there are several important reasons why commercial businesses and operations should invest in a commercial grade monitor instead of a consumer grade monitor.

Intended Use and Operation

You may be surprised to learn that the build quality of the typical consumer grade monitor is often inferior to the build quality of a typical commercial grade monitor. That said, it is no mistake that manufacturers produce commercial monitors to withstand more grueling conditions than their consumer grade counterparts. This is because commercial environments are much different than what one would expect in a consumer environment. For example, a monitor used at a sports bar likely needs to run in intervals of very long hours and at higher temperatures, and so it is designed with these environmental factors in mind. A consumer monitor, however, is reasonably expected to sit on a desk and only run for intervals of a few hours at a time.

Using a Consumer Monitor in a Commercial Setting Can Void its Warranty

If you look at the fine print that comes with a consumer grade monitor, you will often find that using the monitor for commercial purposes may either completely void or substantially reduce the product’s warranty. This is because, as noted above, a consumer grade monitor is not designed for use in commercial environments and could break down when subjected to longer than expected hours of use, higher temperatures, etc.

A Commercial Grade Monitor Generally Comes Equipped With More Mounting Options, Resolution Options, and Orientation Modes

Consumer monitors are generally intended for use only with computers or video game consoles, even if they can be used in other capacities. Since this is the case, the display options for consumer grade monitors are generally very limited as compared to a commercial grade monitor. For instance, a commercial grade monitor may be equipped to hang upside down from the roof of a building rather than to only sit upright on a flat surface. If this is the case, the monitor will almost certainly come equipped with an orientation mode which allows for the screen to be flipped upside down to match how it is mounted. Any given series of commercial grade monitor may also come in several size options, and these monitors generally have more varied resolution options.

The above list are just some examples of how commercial grade monitors are different than and superior to consumer grade monitors. There are certainly many more ways in which the two types of monitors differ from each other. If you are running a business or some variety of commercial enterprise, it is probably wise to invest your money in the purchase of a commercial grade monitor. Even though a commercial monitor is likely to be more expensive than a consumer grade monitor, the benefits of owning a commercial grade monitor greatly outweigh the consideration of cost.
