Systems Supported  by CETS

  • Crestron Fusion – At UNTHSC Crestron equipment is used to integrate classroom technologies that typically operate in individually, so they work together as a single system. Each CETS managed room equipped with a Crestron system can be centrally monitored, managed and controlled using Crestron Fusion. Fusion allows CETS to monitor projector lamp usage, unlock a podium touch panel, turn on/off  a projector remotely.
  • Visix digital door signage – Traditionally CETS had to print and manually distribute paper door signs daily for each room listed in the room scheduling system. Now, we are moving to digital door signs to display a room’s reservations for the day. The data is pulled directly from the Events Management System (EMS) and displayed automatically.
  • Kaltura MediaSpace – is a an online media destination. MediaSpace is a video-centric site that serves as a repository for media collections across the organization. CETS manages both the spaces/folders and user rights for the UNTHSC campus.
