At InfoComm, Panasonic unveiled a combination classroom audio/security device, the A+ Audio System.
The WX-LT350 teardrop mic
The Panasonic WX-LT350 infrared wireless microphone gets the instructor's voice to speakers around the room. But in an emergency, the user can easily push a button on the pendant microphone to send a silent alarm and trigger video surveillance, so security can response as needed. The video can also be viewed on a web browser.
Another product with a dual role is the Panasonic WV-NS202A IP document camera, which provides a visual aid for students in its day-to-day life.
But the camera becomes a surveillance tool when the Function button is held–instantly and quietly refocusing to a pre-set position for real-time surveillance.
It can also react to the alarm signal from the mic, and send alarm e-mails to designated recipients.
