BETT 2020: Five key takeaways from the leading edtech show

As the first industry event of the year, the BETT Show is always a great place to discover the direction the education sector is taking and what the key discussion points will be throughout 2020 and beyond.

This year’s edition featured a new, enlarged footprint and a whole host of new zones, covering everything from Learning Tech to Management Solutions.

From the many conversations we had with people who visited the Loxit stand, we’ve highlighted five key talking points that sum up the technology and trends affecting the edtech market today.

 

  1. Video-assisted Learning

Billed as something that will really take off in the next couple of years, video-assisted learning was a talking point both on the showfloor and across the seminar sessions.

Much more than just putting a video on and expecting students to watch it, video-assisted learning combines hardware and software to create a more engaging and interactive experience. With new tools, videos can be played, annotated on, integrated into comprehensive lesson plans and used to test understanding and progression.

The central screen will be key to the success of a video-assisted learning strategy and, of course, ensuring this is safely and securely mounted is paramount. For large-format screens and touch screens, the HI-LO® Mono range of electric mounts is the ideal solution. Smooth electrical operation raises and lowers the screen by 500mm, meaning users of all sizes and abilities will be able to interact with content safely and easily. The HI-LO® Mono has been designed for durability and stability and can be fitted with an anti-crush bar for additional safety when being used in vulnerable environments such as with young children in nurseries, those in SEN environments or wheelchair users.

 

  1. Putting the Teacher back in Control…

As in so many fields, the idea of user experience and the intuitive technology that this requires, is also a talking point in the education sector. At BETT, this included discussion about the role of the teacher and AV/IT technicians when it comes to device management, something which in the past has been quite a complex task.

By making device management simple, it will no longer be necessary for this to fall under the charge of AV/IT, instead giving teachers the ability to use devices in the way that works best for their students. This could include personalising apps to individual students’ needs and being able to uses devices in a more agile way.

In order to do this, it’s important that device management systems are intuitive and reliable. Take Loxit’s charging, security and storage solutions, for example. With options to securely store, charge and sync devices, these tools ensure tablets and laptops are always ready to use, and that students will be working off devices that are up to date, taking the complexity out of device management.

  1. …But Make Sure They Feel Supported

Certainly not a new issue in the education sector, but one that doesn’t seem to be going away, is the uncertainty some teachers feel when it comes to implementing technology in the classroom.

This was highlighted by the launch of the EdTech Evidence Group at BETT and the news that 79% of teachers and school leaders would like to see clear, tangible proof of edtech’s effectiveness in the classroom.

Being uncertain about working with a new tool is understandable, but with a bit of planning it’s possible to achieve some incredible outcomes. For example, when it comes to investing in new hardware and software, it’s important to be clear on your goals and priorities, both now and in the future. If you want to improve student outcomes or reduce teacher workload, look for tools that have been shown to achieve this, or consider the activities you do or would like to introduce and explore how this can be supported through tech.

Above all, opt for flexible, scalable, reliable and intuitive tools, and uptake and outcomes are likely to be much improved.

  1. Tech Support for SEND

With the announcement at BETT that the UK government has launched a £300,000 initiative to identify how technology can help students with disabilities and special educational needs, empowering SEND students to enable them to achieve their potential through technology was a key talking point.

With each child having their own specific needs, the focus was on how to identify the tools that will most benefit each individual. This could be anything from organisational apps and speech recognition for dyslexic students, through to touchscreens with features such as handwriting and shape recognition that remove the focus on writing/drawing skills, instead enabling the student to focus on the message they’re trying to get across.

Taking this a step further, tools such as the Magic Carpet interactive projection system have been specifically designed to create a totally immersive and intuitive experience for students of all ages and abilities, including those with complex needs. By supporting multiple access methods – gesture, eye gaze, mouse and touch – and with the ability to project images onto all kinds of surfaces, including floors, tables and wheelchair trays, all students can be instantly engaged and included.

  1. The Cosmos is quite Overwhelming

Experimental physicist Brian Cox had a packed BETT Arena enthralled with his keynote entitled Exploring the Universe. Cox took delegates on a whirlwind history of the universe and, interestingly, highlighted how technology that has just been developed is helping to prove the theories of scientists such as Einstein and Lemaître.

As technology develops it’ll be fascinating to see how the field of cosmology, and the wider edtech sector, develops with it.

Custom AV Furniture solutions made easy with Loxit online configurator

Loxit will use ISE and BETT to demonstrate the online configurators now available for its family of furniture products.

With the online configurator for HiveTM, a collaborative desk that combines a screen, device management, charging and security technologies, it is possible to choose desk size – either 3, 5 or 7 people – as well as shape, colour, power module and AV faceplate.

The Hi-Lo Workspace® electric height adjustable desk can also be customised online, with shape, size, colour and accessories able to be modified; specific brand colours and finishes can also be integrated. Particularly popular in corporate and education environments, the Hi-Lo Workspace® offers nearly 600mm of vertical travel meaning it can accommodate everyone from young children to adults.

Finally, the Hi-Lo® SpotlightTM electric height-adjustable lectern is now available in a mobile version. Using the tried and tested design of Loxit’s mobile screen mounts, the new Spotlight offers integration with the latest Creston/Lutron control panels and interfaces, while four lockable casters on the wheeled base ensure it can be positioned securely. An online configurator for SpotlightTM is also now available.

John Whittle, director at Loxit, said: “Loxit is well known for creating custom solutions designed to meet the specific needs of our customers. We have now made this much easier thanks to the addition of online configurators on our website, allowing customers to explore the different options available to them for creating their ideal solution.”

Loxit showcases secure tablet and laptop storage solutions at BETT and ISE 2020

Joining a full range of AV furniture and mounting solutions this year at BETT and ISE, will be the Lapbank® TL laptop trolley and the iBank® family of sync and charge devices.

 

Lapbank® TL is the only top loading laptop trolley, offering easier access and better ergonomics than other products on the market. Capable of holding up to 20 15.6in laptops, Lapbank® TL is a durable yet lightweight charging trolley that features soft start, surge protection, mains conditioner and an anti-backwash device for ultra-safe charging.

 

It uses the original laptop chargers, if a device is replaced or upgraded, the chargers can be swapped for the new model, there are no call out charges or on-going maintenance costs or warranty issues associated with swapping laptops using managed charging systems.

 

When it comes to securely charging tablets, Loxit’s iBank® range can accommodate between 8 and 60 devices, offering sync and charge services or just charging. Ergonomic compartments hold any tablet up to 270mm high, 300mm deep with cases up to 28mm thick, meaning different devices can be stored and charged in the same unit.

ChargeConnect 10 profiles each individual device plugged in and delivers the correct rate of charge for each, including iPad, iPad mini, Galaxy Tab, Surface, Toughbook, Nexus, Kindle, Nook, e-Readers – any USB chargeable device.

Completing the line-up of sync and charge devices is the Tabinet® family. Able to accommodate up to 20 tablets in a desk or wall mounted footprint, it’s ideal for corporate or education environments where tablets need to be stored and charged via universal USB and where aesthetics is important.

In those areas where space is particularly limited, the Tabinet® 10 Slimline wall mounted storage and charging cabinet has a depth of just 220mm and an overall height of 890mm. This has proved a particularly popular solution in medical environments where tablets need to be stored and charged in busy locations where space is at a premium.

The importance of sync and charge kits

Why invest in management, sync and charge devices?

No matter the devices you’re using or the environment in which you’re working, a management, sync and charge solution will ensure you can always be confident that your devices are stored securely and ready to use when you need them.

What are sync and charge solutions?

Available for laptop, tablet and mobiles, management, sync and charge solutions enable multiple devices to be securely stored, while charging and syncing devices to ensure they are ready to use whenever needed. There are various solutions available, from simple multi-point charging units to remote management across an entire campus.

The benefits of sync and charge

Depending on your environment, the number of devices in use and the needs of your users, sync and charge units have multiple benefits.

Take the example of a classroom, where students will be using devices regularly and if one isn’t charged or is running a different version of software, the class will be disrupted for all students. Here iPad and tablet storage systems, including the iBank family of products, can prove invaluable.

Portable or mounted units can cater for up to 60 tablets – more than enough for a classroom. Available as trolleys or cabinets, these units provide a secure place for students to leave tablets once a lesson has ended. By simply placing the device in a Lapbank trolley from Loxit, for example, each device will be charged until the intelligent charging management senses they are at full battery and turns the charge off, saving money, helping the environment and increasing the length of battery life. There is no need to connect to a PC or learn programming skills to ensure efficient charging, the intelligent charge takes care of it all for you. In addition, a USB port provides connectivity to a host computer with an iTunes account for iPad syncing.

If space is tight, such as in a small office, a standalone solution may be more effective. Again these tools are available as charge only or sync and charge, depending on your needs, and they can be integrated into your existing security and charging systems. For example, the stylish Tab Rack allows you to store and charge any USB chargeable tablet or phone, including two universal plug sockets for laptops/peripherals, all from one mains cable.

For larger organisations, laptop charging trolleys offer high security charging for laptops of all makes and sizes. Take the Lapbank TL, for example, which can house up to 20 laptops in foam-cushioned compartments. As well as providing durable, lightweight and manoeuvrable laptop storage, Lapbank TL also offers safe charging that uses the original laptop chargers. This means there are no on-going maintenance costs or warranty issues associated with swapping laptops using managed charging systems.

Sync and charge in healthcare

Another area that can benefit from the reliability, flexibility and small form factor of sync and charge devices is the healthcare sector. Here a solution such as the slimline Tabinet 10 can be an effective choice. Designed to be wall mounted, thus freeing up valuable desk space, its compact design and shallow depth makes it suitable for busy areas such as hospitals where space is at a premium. The smart design accommodates 10 tablets complete with fully managed charging, so every product – regardless of manufacturer or model – receives the perfect charging profile. There’s also plenty of in-built ventilation, allowing air to circulate around the devices, ensuring that there is no heat build-up within the cabinet itself. Charge and data transfer options include universal USB charging, charge only using adapters and sync and charge – high speed, simultaneous data transfer and charging.

Loxit has been at the forefront of management, sync and charge technology for many years and we have solutions to meet every need. To find out more about the products on offer, contact here or download our Tablet, Laptop and Mobile brochure now.

Loxit creates space saving tablet solution for Carnival UK

When it comes to tablets, the versatility of them can sometimes work against you. Storing, charging and managing large groups of these devices can be tricky, there are a lot of cables and chargers to organize. We know that many customers also need the ability to relocate the storage from room to room with the security and safety of a fixed point solution.

Loxit’s range of iBank products are packed full of features that are specially designed for the management of multiple tablets and iPads. The unique Loxit design combines weight saving technology with years of engineering expertise to create:-

– a steel construction that is durable, lightweight and secure.

– easy access to the tablets, increasing usability and making the solution suitable for all.

– flexible storage with each compartment measuring up to 270mm wide x 300mm high x 30mm thick.
– a slimline design with small footprint for maximum efficiency.

As a UK manufacturer we are perfectly placed to create and deliver bespoke solutions.

A recent project with Carnival UK saw a need for small, compact charging and storing of a particular combination of devices. Our in-house design team worked with client to adapt our standard iBank unit to accommodate exactly what they needed.

Dave Desmond, musical director, Carnival UK explains: “The Loxit units have proved ideal for the roll out of iPads used in a bespoke digital sheet music reading system for Carnival UK, across the P&O Cruises and Cunard fleet. Working with the requirements of Session Corner, who designed and implemented the roll out, Loxit designed a mobile trolley to specifically house our combination of 9.7 inch and 12.9 inch iPads. They combined this with a 10 unit charger that supplies full and accurate charge to each device. The iBank units have a welcome degree of adaptability, are well constructed and not over packaged. Both Carnival UK and Session Corner have experienced excellent and prompt communication with Loxit from initial contact to delivery.”

The Loxit experience

For over 2 decades we have collaborated with our customers and technology partners to perfect solutions for everything from iPads and laptops to touch screens and AV furniture.

Loxit: At the forefront of screen lift development

Screen Lift Range from Loxit

With over two decades of experience designing and manufacturing screen lifts and mounts, Loxit is well placed to advise on the best solution for a wide variety of environments.

From touchscreens and large-format displays to whiteboard and projector mounts, we have created reliable, stable and durable mounts that are used across both public spaces and private enterprise.

The world of mounts has changed in many ways since we first began producing them; screen sizes have grown, requiring mounts that are heavy-duty enough to cope with the increased weight this brings while not affecting the aesthetics in environments such as corporate buildings; interactivity has also meant that mounts now need to be able to handle the weight and repetition of being touched by multiple hands, particularly in areas such as education where students could be working together on a screen. Automatic and mobile trolley mounts have also grown in popularity as organisations focus on accessibility for all, while adding more flexibility to what can often be multi-functional spaces.

Over the years, we have not just responded to these trends and needs, but we have actively driven innovation in the mounts and lifts sector. From our strong but sleek Mono Slimline fixed height range, which can handle screens up to 95”, to the Hi-Lo® Mono Electric range of wall, trolley and free-standing mounts, which adds the benefit of near-silent telescopic movement and includes integrated (and hidden) power distribution as standard, we continuously strived to enhance and improve our products while maintaining the reliability and manufacturing excellence that we are known for.

Our touch screen table mounts have been recognised as taking interactivity to the next level, with the ability to electronically raise, lower and rotate the screen, transforming it from a touch screen table into an interactive easel and onwards into the vertical position as a ‘standard’ presentation stand. The Hi-Lo® Duo Flip TopTM Trolley, meanwhile, features a unique flip top design and is able to electrically tilt screens up to 100kg in weight and a maximum of 75″ diagonal, from table top to easel position, vertical and even beyond vertical.

As video walls have grown in popularity, appearing everywhere from shops to corporate lobbies, so Loxit introduced the pioneering Pop-It Video Wall Screen Mount. Responding to the issue of downtime caused by the need to maintain and service videowalls, Pop-It allows for single-person installation and panels can be quickly ‘popped’ out for easy access and maintenance.

In addition to mounts, we also offer a wide range of accessories to ensure our products offer the most value to users in a variety of environments. This includes mounts for video conference cameras, sound bar mounts, VESA adaptor kits and anti-crush bars, helping you to create a safe, reliable and effective solution whether in corporate, healthcare, education or a variety of other sectors, all engineered to our exacting standards.

Safety and longevity are at the core of everything we produce. With that in mind, every Loxit screen mount product is manufactured in the UK from high-quality welded steel, tested to the highest standards and comes with a comprehensive warranty.

Loxit shortlisted for AV Technology Europe Award

Loxit is thrilled to announce that we have been shortlisted for an AV Technology Europe award for our work with the University of Manchester.

The university recently standardised on bespoke height adjustable desks from Loxit to be used across its campus. The impact of these desks across the teaching spectrum, not just for those in wheelchairs or who find it difficult to stand for long periods, has been significant with lecturers no longer experiencing backpain from having to bend over static desks when writing.

John Whittle, director at Loxit, said: “We are very pleased to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. The University of Manchester were a great team to work with and the desks have had such a positive impact that they are now being used in 85 rooms across the university’s estate.”

The importance of choosing the right mount

When undergoing an AV fitout it can be easy to overlook elements such as mounts and accessories, which don’t have an obvious impact on the look, feel or performance of a room.

However, getting the basics right in this area can in fact have a major effect on both design and usability, not to mention safety.

A comfortable viewing experience is crucial in many environments such as corporates and educational institutions. Often a large amount of money is invested in visual technology such as displays and interactive touchpanels. Without the correct mount to support these screens, however, they can become much less effective tools.

Take an interactive panel in an education environment, for example. It is essential that such a tool is securely installed, is robust enough to handle multiple people touching and swiping, and caters for students of various heights and abilities. In this situation, sturdy height adjustable mounts are a good choice. Mobile solutions can also be effective, especially if budgets are limited, as this means one screen and mount can serve a number of teaching spaces.

In the corporate environment, a key consideration may be the impact that a mount has aesthetically. If a meeting room has been designed to be sleek and minimalist, a bulky mount will spoil this, so opt for a less obtrusive option. Loxit’s new Mono Slimline has been designed for just such a scenario. Awarded Best of Show at ISE 2019 by Installation magazine, the single column fixed height wall mount is just 125mm deep front to back, while power and data trunking allows the screen power and all peripheral cabling to be neatly and securely channelled within the central column, completely hidden from view.

When it comes to display technologies, video walls are becoming more prevalent in a number of environments, particularly public spaces such as shopping centres or lobby areas. These may have slightly different requirements compared with private spaces. As they are often used to highlight a product or brand, it is important that video walls are reliable and, should there be any technical issues, they can be resolved quickly as this may be the first point of contact the brand has with a customer or potential customer. Again, the mounting solution could play a role here. For example, the Pop-It Video Wall Screen Mount makes it easy to install, maintain and use video walls of any size or configuration thanks to its ‘pop’ in and pop out functionality. Should the video wall require maintenance, Pop-It gently springs out to allow maintenance when pushed. Once maintenance is complete, it’s simply a case of gently pushing the screen back into position until the mount catch clicks into place – quick, easy and budget-friendly.

Whatever the scenario it’s important to consider how your displays are going to be used and pick a solution that will meet your needs, while also offering longevity, reliability and meeting your design requirements. So, for example, while electric mounts represent a higher initial outlay, the additional functionality they offer and the fact that they are future proofed for any weight screen compared with spring loaded units which are only suitable for specific weight ranges, means they represent a better ROI. There will be no need to de-install and re-install new mounts as screen sizes get bigger if you opt for electric, representing a significant cost and time saving in the medium and longer term.

Loxit has more than 20 years of experience designing and installing mounts into a number of different environments. We can also create bespoke solutions should you have specific requirements. Contact us today to find out more.

 

 

Why choose Loxit furniture

As a company, Loxit prides itself on creating robust, reliable and useful products that improve the lives of users, and our AV furniture range is no exception. In addition to our UK manufacturing, extensive warranty and excellent customer service, there are a number of reasons why Loxit should be your first choice when investing in the desks, lecterns and collaborative workspaces that your university, office, healthcare facility or any other location, needs.

Inclusive for all

Whether in the workplace or learning environment, it is crucial that everyone is comfortable, safe and able to fully take part in activities. With this in mind, Loxit has spent a great deal of time creating furniture solutions that are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. Our versatile Hi-Loâ Workspace, for example, ensures that anyone sitting at that workstation can achieve comfort and the best possible seating position at the touch of a button, improving productivity and reducing fatigue. In a teaching environment, this can mean desks can be used by people of all ages and heights without some having to maintain uncomfortable positions and without having to invest in multiple different desks.

Similarly, the electrically height adjustable Hi-Loâ Spotlight lectern makes it easy for users to present at a height that’s comfortable for them.

Centred on connectivity

No matter the furniture choice you make, connectivity and ensuring people are able to use and manage their devices is central to the products we create. Take our HiveTM desk, for example, which has an integrated AV input panel featuring 2x HDMI, RJ45, USB, VGA and 3.5mm stereo jack for absolute convenience. It can be integrated into an AV environment and even offers optional laptop and mobile device charging. Or the Command desk, which is completely connected to all your AV equipment via industry-standard 12U racking and a faceplate that features RGB, HDMI, USB and CAT5, so everything you need is at your finger tips. This ease of use is what makes Loxit stand out – we understand the frustration that comes from not being able to work effectively as the multiple devices we now use on a daily basis aren’t accommodated for, and we’ve eliminated that inefficiency.

Customisation as standard

While we know our furniture offers a wide range of options, we also understand that you may want something unique, and as we design and manufacture our products in the UK, we are able to offer a bespoke service and work with you to design a solution that truly meets your needs. It is also now possible to configure HiveTM and Hi-Lo® Workspaces to your exact requirements thanks to the new online product configurator.

Build and specify your solution in minutes online

All Loxit furniture products can now be explored, developed and specified within the on-site configuration tool. This simple-to-use tool lets you choose a number of options covering, size, shape, colour, connectivity options and optional extras. Once you’ve designed your custom workspace you can log in to see prices and order. And don’t forget we’re always on hand if you have any bespoke requirements.

Working towards wellness

Workplace wellness has been a hot topic in recent years with growing evidence that a healthy, happy workforce is more productive and more fulfilled, leading to higher staff retention rates. Thorough wellness programmes are becoming increasingly common across businesses and a key issue to tackle here is the amount of time people spend sitting at desks. With that in mind, we’ve spent a great deal of time engineering furniture that promotes postural variety and encourages recognised best practice – varying your postures between sitting and standing. The Hi-Loâ Workspace offers 580mm of vertical height adjustment and a working height of from 655-1225mm allowing everyone to achieve the ideal working position and posture. Unlike many companies, we also manufacture to order so you can be sure of the perfect height adjustable desking solution for your environment.

Loxit named Best of Show at ISE 2019

Loxit is thrilled to announce that the Hi-Lo® Mono Slimline Multi Position Fixed Height Wall Mount has won the prestigious ISE 2019 Best of Show accolade from Installation magazine. 

Designed to recognise the most innovative new products on show at the RAI, the awards are judged by an independent panel of experts throughout ISE 2019.

The Hi-Lo® Mono Slimline is the latest member of the Mono family of popular single-column mounts. As with all Mono products, it offers rigid and stable support in an unobtrusive design, however the new mount also boasts a number of additional features.

Central to this is its slim form –­ it is just 125mm deep front to back – and power and data trunking, which allows the screen power and all peripheral cabling to be neatly and securely channelled within the central column, completely hidden from view, using either of the side gromets (left and right).

Handling screens of up to 130kg or 95in, the Hi-Lo® Mono Slimline is available in six pre-selected height options – floor to centre of screen 1310-1710mm – making it suitable for a wide variety of applications. It is also VESA ready with 75x75mm and 100x100mm pre-drilled mount patterns for ease of installation.

John Whittle, director at Loxit, said: “We are so pleased to once more be recognised as Best of Show by Installation. More than two decades of AV mount experience has gone into the design of the Hi-Lo® Mono Slimline and we believe it offers a solid, durable and aesthetically appealing option that makes it ideal for a wide range of environments.”

Loxit at ISE 2019

Loxit will once again be heading to Amsterdam in February for ISE 2019. Taking place from 5-8 February, the world’s largest AV and systems integration event is one not to be missed, bringing together a huge range of technology alongside a bigger than ever conference and seminar programme.

A packed Loxit stand will feature the latest in AV furniture, mounts, and sync, charge and storage devices, including the Hi-Lo® Spotlight Lectern™. This electric height adjustable lectern is all about comfort, featuring integrated technology to ensure you are physically comfortable and able to present at a height that’s perfect for you, and mentally comfortable with simple, quick access and control of the equipment that’s around you.

The Loxit team will also be on hand to demonstrate the new online product configurator, which enables users to configure Hi-Lo® to their exact requirements. The simple-to-use tool allows you to personalise a number of options, including size, shape and finish.

Loxit will be highlighting its latest mobile, tablet and laptop charging and security solutions for shared resources at ISE 2019. This includes Tabinet™, a slimline, wall mounted, secure storage solution for tablets and iPads, with built-in charging for devices. Tabinet™ offers an unobtrusive sync, charge and storage solution perfect for corridors, smaller offices, huddle areas and anywhere else where space is at a premium. The optional 10-digit combination lock access provides keyless access.

Set to be the biggest show in the event’s history, ISE 2019 is a must-attend event for AV and SI professionals. Register now and don’t forget to visit Loxit on stand 11-G150.

Visit Loxit at Bett 2019 stand C252

Bett, the world’s biggest education technology event, returns to London’s ExCeL from 23-26 January and Loxit will once more be showcasing our latest innovations.

Taking centre stage on stand will be the HiveTM desk family. The HiveTM is a productive space designed to connect your students and technology. Easily configured to deliver whatever you need – a collaborative desk area or a fully integrated solution with screen, device management, charging and management technologies – this all-in-one solution offers quick and easy access to everything needed to work effectively and collaboratively. It is available in various configurations to accommodate 3, 5 or 7 users.

We will also be highlighting our latest charging and security solutions for shared resources at Bett 2019. The latest addition to this range is the Lapbank TL, a laptop trolley designed with security in mind.

There are three things that make the Lapbank TL a stand out solution. First, it’s lighter than any other Lapbank. Second, it has a smaller footprint. Third, it’s more maneuverable.

The Lapbank TL is easier to get into smaller spaces, such as those often found in early years rooms. It requires less effort to move when fully loaded and thanks to the four grab handles, one at each corner, it responds to even the lightest of touches.

The construction is robust, fabricated from 1.5mm all welded steel sheets. Security remains class leading, thanks to the high-quality hinges and seven lever safe locks that are protected by anti-jemmy bar devices.

These are just some of the products we’ll be showcasing at Bett. Stop by stand C252 to learn more and to discover our full range of solutions.
