PRS Remote Connect – Connect remote audiences to your teaching location

Link satellite groups to your multi-media events

 Make the most of your Interwrite™ handsets and engage students on remote sites with the PRS Remote Connect software from Banxia® Software. Increase the audience for guest speakers and gain extra feedback by including the students at other sites in the interactive sessions.

With modern, high reliability network connections, you can now have “satellite” locations where students can watch a live video feed of a teacher or special guest and can see their computer screen. Now you can include interactivity with all students by connecting back to your primary Interwrite PRS sessions.

Banxia’s PRS Remote Connect software is designed to be “plug and play”. Install the software on the central computer and the satellites, and it will automatically detect when the PRS receivers are plugged in, and connect them to the central location using the network. The central location configures where on the network it will look for devices. The central software then sees them as though they are plugged into the local computer. No further knowledge of their operation is needed.
