2019 Summer Classroom Refresh Information


This article describes the classroom refresh project for Summer 2019.


In this article:

Start/End Dates

This project begins May 13, with an estimated completion date of August 9. The bulk of installation activity will occur in late June through August.

Changes for 2019

  • BYOD. Refresh classrooms follow the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) standard set in 2014. Labs and Specialty rooms that rely on dedicated PCs for unique functions in those areas will receive updated models. 
    A laptop or other portable device is required to present content in BYOD rooms. Full-time faculty have a Xavier-issued laptop for this purpose; personal devices can also be used, if preferred. We recognize that adjuncts often lack laptops. Accordingly, we will provide loaner laptops for adjuncts to check out from the CLC Library, beginning a week prior to the start of the Fall semester.
  • Solstice wireless display. In rooms where Solstice wireless display is available, it will be the default touchpanel display option, accommodating the widest variety of mobile devices. (For more information on Solstice, please see "Related Articles" on the sidebar). Lecterns also include HDMI and mini DisplayPort cable connectors compatible with most laptops. 
  • VGA retirement. VGA is considered a legacy connector and has been dropped from classroom refreshes since 2016. Those using older VGA or newer USB-C equipped devices in refreshed classrooms can display using Solstice; no wires or adapters required.
  • Lampless projectors. Existing projectors will be upgraded to the latest Panasonic model for improved reliability and image quality.
  • Document cameras. Permanently-mounted Epson DC-21 document cameras are standard in Single and Dual-projector classrooms unless otherwise noted.
  • New lecterns. Older 42" lecterns will be upgraded to new 36" models, in accordance with campus standards.
