The Juno Hearing Augmentation and Assistance System – A Student Report

What students hear isn’t always clear. Recent studies show that most students miss at least 25% of what their teachers say. So if we want our kids to learn, we have to make it easier for them to listen.

FrontRow Active Learning Systems compensate for these problems, gently amplifying and clarifying teachers’ and students’ voices, essentially giving every student a front row seat.

In this video, Ms. Free’s class demonstrates the use of the Juno system in a practical, day-to-day teaching environment.

Come experience the true clarity of FrontRow.

NEC adds 55-inch Ultra-Narrow Bezel Display to Video Wall Portfolio

NEC adds 55-inch Ultra-Narrow Bezel Display to Video Wall Portfolio

Commercial LCD display and projector solutions provider NEC Display Solutions of America has announced its X554UNV display, designed to be ideal for indoor video wall applications in control rooms, retail stores and transportation environments.

According to NEC, forward-looking organizations continue to deploy video walls for strategic business advantage. According to market research firm DisplaySearch, the global large-screen display market is expected to grow 27 percent this year to more than 3 million units shipped, and video walls are contributing to that expansion, the company said in the announcement.

The new display launch is in response to those rising market expectations, NEC said. With an ultra-narrow bezel design of just 3.5mm between neighboring displays, commercial-grade brightness and ultra-HD TileMatrix support, the X554UNV delivers a 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution across an entire video wall. Its direct LED-backlighting also delivers improved brightness uniformity, reduced power consumption and mercury-free components, the company said.

In addition, Auto TileMatrix features allow a user to simply set up the size of the video wall on the first display and automatically scale the content through the remaining displays. With the press of a few buttons, the entire video wall is set up. The result is faster installation, which reduces costs and improves the customer experience, NEC Display said.

“Video-wall displays, like the X554UNV, help a variety of organizations not only make bold statements but also deliver on business objectives,” said Keith Yanke, senior director of product marketing for large-screen displays and projectors at NEC Display. “They are just some of the solutions that NEC Display is leveraging to help people and organizations communicate, build relationships, inspire, impart knowledge and improve productivity.”

The X554UNV also supports Intel’s Open Pluggable Specification, the first industry-wide standardization in option slots to simplify digital signage. The OPS option slot allows for easier installation, use and maintenance of digital signage.

Among its other features:

Full commercial build with steel chassis, commercial-grade cooling fans and temperature sensor;
Auto ID feature, which reduces install time in the single press of a button;
Expanded connectivity panel, including DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI and OPS slot support;
Expanded daisy chain options with DisplayPort 1.2, which enables 4K resolution;
Brightness of 500 cd/m² and 4000:1 contrast ratio;
Auto ID/Auto TileMatrix technology for video walls up to 100 displays;
Carbon footprint meter, which calculates and tracks carbon savings;
ENERGY STAR 6.0, which meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy; and
NaViSet Administrator 2, which eases administration and management.
