SplitmediaLabs today announced that it has made a deal with Amrita eLearning Research Lab of Amrita University to license its VH Java Media Toolkit to be integrated into A-VIEW.
A-VIEW (Amrita Virtual Interactive E-Learning World) it is a versatile E-Learning tool for distance education. The product has features and functions to simulate an interactive class room environment and supports audio and video of teachers and selected students. The product also includes white board, document sharing and desktop sharing.
A-VIEW is currently under development and is expected to be made available for free to all Indian universities and colleges.
"We are developing A-VIEW with the goal to provide a world class learning product to Indian learning institutions. One of the challenges we faced was the implementation of an effective screen sharing system for which we have put great resources into finding the best option while considering both open source and commercial alternatives. We have not been able to find any systems available which comes close to the offering of SplitmediaLabs" says Prof. Praveen Bist at Amrita University.
With the release of VH Java Media Toolkit 3 earlier this year, SplitmediaLabs believes that it has managed to multiply the distance between SplitmediaLabs toolkit and other alternative toolkits or component solutions. Aside from screen sharing the toolkit now also offers sharing of specific applications or windows and remote control in addition to HD camera streaming and IP camera streaming.
