Accompanied by Rise Vision’s education-grade signage solutions, the Airtame platform provides standardized emergency alerts to entire school systems to streamline communication, response time, and safety.
New York, NY, May 31, 2023 – Airtame, creator of the hardware-enabled SaaS platform that allows seamless collaboration in schools and businesses, today announced its partnership with advanced digital signage software developer Rise Vision to bring best-in-class communication, safety, and collaboration to educational facilities.
“We’re proud and excited to be working with Rise Vision, a company that shares our great value for keeping schools as safe as possible to better facilitate learning and collaboration,” said Susanne Lund, Airtame CEO. “Supporting students and teachers with high-quality technology to make communication and collaboration seamless is essential in our modern learning environment. Our partnership will bring schools the unique benefits of our combined solutions to keep students and faculty safe and informed, so learning and in-class development can be prioritized.”
For the first time, Rise Vision emergency alerts will be able to override a screen sharing session on Airtame devices, bringing emergency alerts and increased safety to the classroom and other school settings where critical information must be distributed. The partnership, which first began in May 2021 to allow for seamless Rise Vision digital signage capabilities on Airtame powered screens, will now provide schools with increased security capabilities and the opportunity to share emergency information on a large-scale to improve response time.
Rise Vision solutions provide easy to use software, and hundreds of K-12 specific templates that can be used in the classroom for morning announcements, class schedules and reminders, positive culture builders like daily acts of kindness, and auto updating templates like this day in history, national day of the week, and many more! Paired with the Airtame platform – which creates a smarter and more engaging shared screen experience with hybrid conferencing, screen sharing and digital signage – the technology provides increased value to school systems.
With the combined capabilities of Airtame and Rise Vision, districts have the flexibility to use screens effectively to improve communication, wirelessly screen share from any laptop and mobile device, and keep schools safe by broadcasting alerts to all Airtame powered screens in classrooms and common areas – streaming will be shut down simultaneously on all screens to display alerts.
“With Airtame, we’re able to elevate the efficiency and effectiveness of our emergency alert system, a tool that has become increasingly essential for all schools and universities,” said Brian Loosbrock, Rise Vision CEO. “Using digital signage to communicate essential emergency information to an entire school or campus body is something we are passionate about – it can help reduce emergency response time and save lives.”
With the ability to control messaging across interactive flat panels, projectors, and TVs in any room, with the added benefits of high-quality service, free training, and low maintenance solutions, the partnership brings schools a one-of-a-kind solution. The easy to use, reliable hardware and software also eliminates downtime, reduces tickets, and simplifies large deployments for school IT departments to save resources and funding, slashing the maintenance burden and empowering teachers and students.
Airtame’s powerful collaboration solutions and Rise Vision’s advanced digital signage capabilities give users the highest quality option for school safety and communication. Schools nationwide have already implemented the pairing of Rise Vision and Airtame, and results have been impactful.
“We’re already happily using Rise Vision for our hallway announcements and news, and we were using Airtame in many of our conference rooms and classrooms for casting,” said Matt Shea, M.Ed., Chief Technology Officer, Vernon Township School District. “Of course they should partner! We have had a great experience using Airtame on our displays with Rise Vision still showing our announcements when the display is not in use – we’re pleased with both products and plan to add more displays.”
