They wanted to get rid of display adapters and improve connectivity options that would allow classroom lectures and meetings to start promptly regardless of whether they take place in a classroom or meeting room.

The Intel Unite Solution Can Remove Barriers

This can result in several points of failure and delay in teaching and meetings. We needed to simplify display connectivity across a variety of devices and platforms. We also needed to be able to easily stream content into the classroom. The Intel Unite solution helped eliminate these hurdles.”—Erik Greenwood, Chief Technology Officer, Anaheim UHSD.
