Configuration & Installation Services
The configuration of creative technology solutions in education is a specialist area requiring expert knowledge and experience. This is an aspect of a project specification that has a substantial impact on outcomes but sadly one that is frequently overlooked.
Counterpoint therefore work closely with teaching staff and IT support teams to ensure that the configuration and installation options available are fully considered and detailed along with proposals.
Initial recommendations are comprehensive to ensure that all the potential outcomes are considered, before revisions are made to tailor the package to your specific requirements.
Counterpoint's engineers are highly-trained to configure and implement projects to a professional standard. Their experience in working with education customers brings attention to detail regarding specific academic demands, which have a direct impact on the solution robustness, reliability, ease-of-use, student / teacher interaction and security.
Network Integration Integration of creative solutions with existing Windows networks brings many essential benefits to Mac and PC solutions. These include unified logon, integration with existing network and cross platform cross-curricular file access.
Application Configuration Creative software is extremely powerful and highly configurable. Securing the appropriate default parameters for these applications ensures simple consistent operation and has a significant impact on classroom outcomes.
Storage Performance Media applications put substantial demands on data storage configuration and performance. Whether integrating with an existing storage solution or implementing a specialist solution, careful configuration is required.
Backup Strategies Creative subjects produce huge amounts of data that needs to be backed up. Counterpoint engineers work closely with ICT support staff to configure integrated or segregated backup solutions.
Student / Teacher Workflows Counterpoint engineers work with teaching and technical staff to configure appropriate teacher/student workflows. Where records of in-progress and completed work are required appropriate distribution folders are configured.
Classroom / Studio Integration Joined up solutions allow pupils to start working on projects in the classroom, move to the recording studio to capture audio tracks, and then transfer back to the classroom to continue their work.
Acoustic Treatment Acoustic treatment is an essential studio component for creating an appropriate 'natural sounding' recording space. Counterpoint's studios team use acoustic treatment to reduce reflections and undesirable ringing frequencies.
Cabling Schematics Counterpoint engineers are experienced in providing high quality cabling infrastructure for creative department solutions, working closely with architects and contractors whenever required.
Classroom Layout Classroom layouts are designed to provide good student teacher interaction with appropriate health and safety considerations. During installation, engineers work with department staff to optimise the solution.
"I can't overstate the importance of Counterpoint in making our installation a success: They designed and installed the whole system, and their technical support has been outstanding."
