My Pick: Dukane ConVA Media Control System software, $399 MSRP per room (Presenter edition); $999 MSRP for a 50-seat license (Administrator edition)

What I Like About It: ConVA simplifies the control of multiple AV devices in the classroom for our teachers. This software system enables control and monitoring of these devices by converting the RS232 control codes into an IP stream sent over the computer network connection. All of the controls are then presented to the user via ConVA's GUI computer interface. The functions on each device's remote control are also represented on the computer screen. This lowers the learning curve for this equipment, which makes it easier to use and leads to greater acceptance. Using a wireless mouse allows teachers to move about the room while controlling the equipment, and also increases their interaction with the students.

Because the software is run over our LANs and corporate intranet, remote control of classroom technology means less running around for our technicians. Now we can be sure that devices — especially the video projectors —aren't left on all night or on weekends, which reduces required maintenance and saves hours on expensive bulbs. Actions can also be scheduled so that all devices can be turned off at 10:00 p.m., while local overrides are possible for those burning the midnight oil.
