Cynap is based on a platform multimedia interface that enables end users to simultaneously share content from up to four devices.
The solution is compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices, and displays all shared content with 4K UHD output resolution.
Cynap’s other main features include:
• Recording capabilities
• Uploading and streaming options for recorded and saved content
• Connection with the vSolution Capture app, which enables students to record/receive content from any Cynap device within the network, voiceover commentary and audio included
• Personalization of the streamed content with annotation capabilities in real time
• User-friendly interface for easy access to content as well as display, play, record and stream media stored on users’ deices, USB drive and Cloud services
Kyle Greetham, Communications Manager at Wolfvision says the company has had great success with supporting higher education technologically, and expects Cynap to be a great addition to any classroom.
He says Cynap’s setup in a college setting is simple, and the vSolution Capture app is free for students.
“The school would invest in the box,” Greetham says. “It works in combination with the visualizer if they choose to get it – they don’t need it, it can work independent of it. Once the stream goes out, we’ll set up a QR code on the screen or display. The students will scan that QR code, it’ll bring them to that stream, and they’ll get it live from the box that’s being sent out.”
Greetham also says Cynap is adaptable and more than prepared for any shape higher education classrooms take in the future.
“The best part is that [students] can add annotations and notes, and personalize content,” he says. “So for a lot of the schools that are moving to MOOCs or online course content, we want you…to personalize it to be exactly what you need.”
