Join DV at CEN 2019 Conference May 10

DiscoverVideo is presenting at the CEN Annual Members Conference, May 10 at the Connecticut Convention Center

The Connecticut Education Network conference is a premier community forum for finding effective technology solutions and sharing best practices.

Over 500 colleagues and education technology industry leaders come together to explore networking possibilities, discover better paths forward, grow their organization, and engage with the Connecticut education community.

DiscoverVideo’s Rich Mavrogeanes has a educational session at 1:30PM to talk about “Enhancing Security at Schools with Video Alerts.”

Video communications is a great tool to inform teachers and students about various emergencies. This presentation will focus on video streaming technology and how it can be utilized in a school environment to warn and instruct people about a specific event or danger. Many schools are using the award winning DEVOS platform for education, but with new enhancements, it can now be leveraged to provide instantaneous alerts on a campus, in a specific building or classroom. The focus will be on video streaming, wired and wireless networks, and the integration with existing security systems. Real world examples will be provided.

Plus Ethics & Robotics

Additionally, the keynote speaker will be Dr. Kate Darling, a leading expert in robot ethics. She is a research specialist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, where she investigates social robotics and conducts experimental studies on human-robot interaction. Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, she explores the emotional connection between people and life-like machines, seeking to influence technology design and policy direction. Dr. Darling’s writing and research anticipate difficult questions that lawmakers, engineers, and the wider public will need to address as human-robot relationships evolve in the coming decades.
