When it comes to classroom technology, UNLV is the best in the business. Just ask anyone who has toured the campus with Scott Menter and Frank Alaimo, the university’s office of information technology resident audiovisual, classroom technology, and learning space design gurus.

Next month the two get to share their expertise with the world. Menter, classroom technology services manager, and Alaimo, audiovisual systems specialist, are traveling to Amsterdam to speak about their team’s experience with building an enterprise audiovisual system for UNLV at the Integrated Systems Europe conference, scheduled for Feb. 5 through Feb. 8.

According to Menter, UNLV is the only United States college to present at this year’s conference. Considered the world’s largest audiovisual and integrated systems trade show, Integrated Systems Europe is estimated to attract more than 80,000 attendees and feature over 1,300 exhibitors.

The presentation is part of the “What’s Next … Higher Education Integrated Experience Design” program presented by AVIXA, which focuses on the transformation of learning and collaboration space designs across college campuses. On Feb. 5, Menter and Alaimo discuss the design of UNLV’s classroom and learning space audiovisual system, the advantage of collecting system data to identify utilization trends, and using that information to make smart technology decisions.

Alaimo is honored to present at this year’s conference, and when asked about what is one of the things he is most excited about, his response included learning from like-minded higher education professionals from all over the globe. "We will have the opportunity to see what other technologies they are doing - what works and does not work for them - and bring it back to the (UNLV) campus."
