I would like to be able to broadcast a movie from my instructor’s desk to my students’ screens.  Can the LINK System broadcast a movie to the students’ monitors?  I do not want to add a projector to my classroom. Is it true that the LINK System can replace a projector?

The LINK System excels at broadcasting full motion video to the students’ monitors.  By selecting Transmit All on the LINK System’s touchscreen console, an instructor is able to broadcast anything that appears on the instructor’s desktop out to their students’ screens.  You can play any video file (AVI, FLV, MOV, MPEG, MPEG-4, and WMV) using your preferred video player.  In addition, DVDs and other live video feeds can be broadcast.  Many customers use document cameras, DVD players, digital microscopes, iPads, Androids, or any other device that has a video output.

The LINK System is an elite hardware solution that broadcasts the instructor’s raw video feed to the students’ monitors.  Unlike classroom management software which is unable to broadcast full-motion video, the LINK System will project the live video at any frame rate that is input into the system.

Due to the superior video performance, LINK Systems are commonly used in graphics and simulation classrooms.  Whether your trainees are learning computer animation or how to pilot an aircraft, the LINK System is an excellent choice for your environment.
