The university employs more than 1,200 staff and has more than 13,000 students enrolled across five campuses: Bruges, Courtray, Ostend, Roulers, and Thourout.
As part of the upgrade, all of the University’s seminar rooms and theatres are now equipped with an Access Point Transceiver (MXWAPT) and a single or dual set of transmitters, consisting in each case of a handheld microphone, a bodypack with a headset, and matching charging stations (MXWNCS). Additionally, lecterns in the theaters are also fitted with Microflex wired gooseneck microphones.
Since the time of the installation, the new wireless systems have been free from interference as requested, as MXW’s automatic frequency coordination ensures continuous use of clean, interference-free RF. Transmitters with flat batteries are also a thing of the past with MXW’s advanced Lithium ion rechargeable batteries.
“Our aim was that we wouldn’t have any more problems with our wireless systems, and we are very pleased with this installation,” said Andrew Clauw, Vives University’s head of AV and IT services. “In the past, I had to go to the classrooms every week to adjust settings and ensure the systems were operating well. But since the new systems were installed, I haven’t been called to the rooms once for this reason.”
