LOS ANGELES—Students that want to take graduate classes at the University of Southern California’s Viterbi School of Engineering won’t have to deal with the infamous Los Angeles traffic to get to class. Instead, with help from Sony technology, the Distance Education Network (DEN@Viterbi) at the school offers online resources for remote students.  


The DEN@Viterbi team uses Sony’s BRC-H700, BRC-H800 and BRC-H900 cameras and remote controllers to broadcast live lectures from the classrooms. The school is also using Sony laser projectors—VPL-FHZ60, VPL-FHZ65 and VPL-FHZ700L—in the classroom, which is a benefit for both the remote students and those on campus.
