This School, located in the Changning District of Shanghai, was established in 1965. It was among the first public schools in the city to undergo conversion into a public-run institution in 1997, and then became a fully public school in 2007. The school currently boasts nearly 1,300 students and 40 classrooms. It is known for its dedication to progress and innovation, particularly in the realm of information technology, which has consistently placed it at the forefront of Shanghai's middle schools and earned it numerous accolades from the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with directives from the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, the school has taken targeted measures to construct top-quality blended online/offline teaching studios as well as regular recording classrooms.
1. The local sound reinforcement system's limited integration with other systems results in average sound pickup/amplification performance. Due to its independent and simplistic design, it cannot be easily integrated with other systems. To enhance the sound pickup/amplification performance, a more comprehensive solution must be established.
2. The original recording and broadcasting system has a highly customized camera that is difficult to repurpose. While it supports classroom recording, live streaming, interaction, and on-demand services, the hanging microphones and speakers in the classroom are only suitable for course recording and not for local teacher sound reinforcement within the classroom. As a result, the system's cameras cannot be used by other systems, which leads to unsynchronized audio and video recording.
3. The original conference whiteboard lacks professional external audio and video hardware, resulting in suboptimal sound pickup and amplification. Online teaching primarily relies on interactive electronic whiteboard platforms such as ClassIn, Tencent Classroom, and DingTalk, supplemented by Tencent Meeting. Unfortunately, these platforms do not have professional sound pickup/amplification/camera devices and cannot reuse the microphones, speakers, and lenses of the recording and broadcasting system. Consequently, online/offline blended classrooms cannot effectively capture and amplify online student speeches, which adversely affects online teaching recordings.
