Labstar VS-400 Media Server

The Labstar VS-400 Video Server system allows students and teachers to play high quality video and audio clips over a network or the internet. The server and its media are accessed via standard web pages, allowing for connection from any networked computer.

Labstar Media Server for Language Learning



Labstar VOD Server

The VS-400 can broadcast hundreds of different videos simultaneously to different connected clients. A unique feature of the system is that the teacher has the ability to fully control broadcasting, using the integrated Access Time Control. With this control, instructors may determine when videos are available for viewing by students.

Videos in the system may also be bookmarked to make it easy for students to jump to specific segments of the video. Bookmarks are easy to create, and students can jump to one by simply selecting that bookmark during video playback.

Instructors and administrators can also make use of the web-based management system for media, account and access management.

The VOD management system allows instructors and administrators to manage the media library easily through functions such as add, delete, upload, etc. Videos and audio files can be added to the system from any connected computer. So once a video has been encoded or downloaded, it can easily be added to the VOD system from anywhere on campus, or even from home.

The Labstar VS-400 Media Server is designed to run and support the Genesis VOD and VLE systems.  This robust server can store and stream thousands of hours of video and audio, as well as manage complete courses.

Linguatronics Installation & Training ServicesINSTALLATION & TRAINING

When it is time to install your system in a language lab or second language classroom, Linguatronics has many options to meet your particular needs.

Linguatronics offers comprehensive, on-site installation services provided by trained technical staff.  If you decide to install our system yourself, we offer online and telephone installation support to guide you through the process.

During our on-site installation visits, we dedicate a good portion of our time to training your technical staff and end-users on system functionality and usage.  These training sessions are hands-on events, giving you valuable experience using the system in authentic situations.

If you decide to install your own system, we can make on-site training-only visits to train your staff.  Alternatively and additionally, you can use our on-line training service for complete system training or to brush-up on certain skill areas.  On-line training is available to registered users 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
