Chief’s complete AV system provides unparalleled features and benefits for using technology in the classroom

Minneapolis, MN. USA (AUG 2010) - -Chief is now shipping the new CoPilot AV room system. The design of this comprehensive, networked solution was based upon extensive market-driven research and direct input from customers. It is easy to install, user-friendly and fully upgradeable, making it a great classroom technology option for systems integrators, administrators, teachers, presenters, and students alike.

Expanding and improving upon standards established by other modular classroom AV systems, CoPilot is ideally suited for K-12 schools. Incorporating all components necessary to bring premium audio and video into an environment in a single SKU, this new AV room system includes advanced features and state-of the art equipment to enhance the learning experience in classrooms and training rooms.

CoPilot’s audio system includes high-performance 5-1/4-inch plenum speakers, professional-grade cabling and RF wireless technology to provide the highest quality sound without the interference issues of an IR system. A second, handheld microphone is also included to facilitate student participation, and ADA-compliant assisted listening receivers can be connected for individual student use, creating a better learning environment for children with hearing loss or learning disabilities. S-Video input, VGA monitor output, and a second VGA input to accommodate another PC, are found within the system’s video module.

Fast installation is aided by the system’s ability to be seamlessly integrated within standard dual-gang boxes. At the CoPilot control module, a CAT5e interface is used along with a single power supply that feeds all system modules without a need for special cabling. Users have the option of controlling the system through an LED-lit in-wall panel, or a matching IR remote. PA/intercom override has been made part of the package as well, along with provisions for fire alarm override.

CoPilot systems are outfitted with high-quality Chief mounting solutions and related accessories offering various options for mounting suspended ceiling projectors, short-throw projectors, flat panel TVs, and other wall-mounted multimedia equipment.

CoPilot is driven by its own free proprietary software. Providing centralized network control and monitoring of CoPilot systems, the software can be accessed via a modern web browser.
