Telecor manufactures a high-performance communications package that interfaces separate communication subsystems into a cost-effective and comprehensive network
Intercom, Paging, and Program Distribution Features
A user can easily operate the Telecor system with the MCC-300 Administrative Console. The console contains clearly defined function keys to guide the user through operations, quickly and efficiently.
Intercom calls to classroom speakers, duplex communications to traditional telephone instruments, together with selective paging and program distribution, are performed from the MCC-300 console. Incoming calls from remote locations are presented in chronological and priority sequence on the easy-to-read console LCD display.
A facility’s telephone system can interface directly to the Telecor Communications System, providing the optimum in flexibility for institutions by allowing telephone extensions to communicate with classroom speakers and administrative consoles, manually activate tones for emergency signaling purposes, and conduct paging announcements throughout the facility.
Telecor manufacturers a wide variety of devices for the classroom environment, including loudspeakers, call switches, telephones, and clocks. Each classroom can be configured with any combination of devices to suit its specific requirements.
A built-in Master Clock controls and synchronizes all digital and analog secondary clocks, ensuring all clocks in a facility display the correct time. The Master Clock can control multiple events throughout the facility, such as class change signaling, and automatically adjusts for seasonal events, holidays, and daylight-savings time.
Digital clocks can display messages (e.g. “Bell”) from the Master Clock to provide visual indication of events. Messages can be coded to discreetly convey matters of concern to staff, such as an unlocked open door. Scrolling messaging capability is also provided. Messages can be activated/deactivated automatically or manually.
In addition to providing voice communications, the Telecor system permits access and control of media sources. Using the existing cable infrastructure, a Telecor system can provide media retrieval without significantly increasing the price of the school’s communication system.
The system allows an instructor from the classroom to operate a media device such as a DVD player or VCR located at a central location in the facility. The media device can be controlled from either a handheld remote or the classroom telephone. An instructor may start, stop, pause and replay a program with the touch of a button. The program is transmitted from the media source equipment to the classroom television over the facility’s broadband television network.
Other systems can be integrated to the Telecor System to provide increased security measures. Access doors can be equipped with Intercom Stations and CCTV cameras to provide staff both visual and audio communications. A camera automatically comes on when a call is placed. From the MCC-300 Console, staff can activate the door release mechanism to open the door. Calls can also be transferred to a wireless phone, which allows staff or security personnel to receive calls no matter where they are in the building.
In addition, the system can be used for alarm verification or remote monitoring through the use of up to eight monitor zones. The zones allow console or off-site telephone operators to listen to the areas of the facility for unauthorized activity. When a zone is being monitored the operator can conveniently change modes to address the zone using the system’s paging capability.
The TII/XL Editor is an easy-to-use web-based interface that allows for the configuration of the Telecor Communications System via the internet or LAN/WAN. An entire school board consisting of multiple systems can be managed and monitored from one convenient central location, resulting in savings of time and money.
The expanded capability offered by the Editor allows staff rather than a CSG technician to easily change characteristics of a system, such as creating and modifying schedules, music on class change, holidays, page, program, and time zones, etc.
The Editor’s web-based interface is intuitive, allowing for a wider variety of staff to attend to the system. Users can be assigned different access privileges to determine what can be modified on a system.
With central control and remote access, a school district’s IT professional can now manage and maintain all programming, all without having to leave the office. In the event that a CSG technician is required, the system can be accessed remotely via the internet.
