IP Endpoints for Education

Algo IP endpoints are purpose-built for educational settings, seamlessly integrating into VoIP school environments to ensure effective communication among students, teachers, faculty, and staff. Algo devices operate in harmonious coordination, offering a user-friendly approach to customize communication systems within schools and college campuses.


IP Speakers for Education

Algo IP Speakers deliver high-performance audio output in education facilities, extending the reach of voice paging, emergency alerting, loud ringing, and background music throughout schools and campuses. Algo speakers are wideband-capable, ensuring audible communication is effectively heard by teachers, staff, and students.

Algo speakers can be configured as multicast senders or receivers, making it easy to assign them to zones, which can be done by classroom, grade, or area. Additionally, Algo speakers include a range of features to enhance audible communication, such as ambient noise detection, secure SIP, and two-way talkback, making it easy for teachers and staff to communicate and ensuring the safety of students.

Wall Speakers

Wall speakers are designed to attach to any wall surface and are intended to be placed where they can easily be heard and seen. The 8410 IP Display Speaker is an integrated 3-in-1 solution offering both visual and audible alerting. In a classroom, voice paging and audible announcements can be delivered while offering visual notifications on the display screen. The 8420 IP Dual-Sided Display Speaker offers the same functionality as the 8410, but double-sided, which is ideal for school hallways and corridors.

IP Paging Adapters for Education

Algo IP Paging Adapters seamlessly bridge IP communication systems to legacy paging infrastructure in education. Algo paging adapters emulate a page port like what is found on a legacy PBX or key system. This enables Algo paging adapters to connect directly to traditional analog amplifiers, offering a simple and easy interface to an IP system as an SIP extension and multicast endpoint.

In cases where schools or college facilities are transitioning to IP environments, Algo paging adapters ensure that education staff are still able to retain functionality of their analog speakers and technology while communicating in an IP environment. Where schools are using amplifiers that have zoning structures, Algo has a solution that will retain the zones, which are often arranged by grade, department, building, offices, and common areas. 

Paging Adapter

The 8301 IP Paging Adapter is a PoE, SIP endpoint that integrates existing traditional paging infrastructure into a VoIP environment. In an education environment where traditional infrastructure is kept, the 8301 emulates a page port like what is found on a legacy PBX to connect directly to an analog amplifier, thereby acting as a bridge between IP and legacy voice paging infrastructure. However, in a full IP deployment, the 8301 is also often used as a multicast sender, whereby the 8301 broadcasts live or pre-recorded announcements to other Algo IP Endpoints grouped into zones.

Zone Paging Adapter

The 8373 IP Zone Paging Adapter is a PoE endpoint that is specifically designed to work with zoned amplifiers. The 8373 provides zone control in an education environment to existing legacy infrastructure. Containing a dry page output that connects a traditional zone amplifier, the 8373 eliminates the need for a legacy zone controller.

While the 8373 is commonly deployed to bridge VoIP zone paging to analog systems, it may also be used to add page zones to a single zone system. The 8373 allows legacy zoning to be retained in schools and campuses that retain legacy zoning voice paging infrastructure.

IP Displays for Education

Algo IP Displays bring a powerful integrated solution for communication systems for education institutions. The combined functionality of the LCD display screen, speaker, and flashing LEDs enable voice paging, visual or audible alerting, and informational visual content, such as scrolling text messages, visual paging, or graphic images in a school or campus. Algo displays easily keep students, teachers, and staff informed of upcoming school events, student activities, weather events, and daily announcements. 

Display Speakers

Algo display speakers are a 3-in-1 solution for effective audible and visual communication. Comprising three core components – a 15.6” wide-angle LCD display screen, wideband-capable speakers, and highly noticeable LED flashers, display speakers are a multi-purpose communication tool that can be deployed in hallways, common rooms, classrooms, lecture halls and many other areas of an educational institution. 

Algo IP Display Speakers come in two forms, single-sided and dual-sided. The 8410 IP Display Speaker is intended for classroom applications where it may be surface mounted against a wall. The 8420 IP Dual-Sided Display Speaker may be wall or ceiling mounted and is intended for deployments in hallways and corridors to be seen from opposite directions. 

IP Visual Alerters for Education

Algo IP Visual Alerters deliver highly notable visual alerting and can be deployed in education for emergency notification in noisy environments. Equipped with high-intensity, long-life LEDs, Algo’s strobe lights easily capture the attention of teachers, staff, and students and can be used to complement voice paging and emergency alerting systems. Algo visual alerters can be mounted on a wall or ceiling and be configured to display as steady state or flashing to signal different types of events or actions. Algo has single-color and multi-color visual alerting solutions, enabling education facilities to fully customize their environments to meet the visual requirements of teachers and students. 

Strobe Lights

Algo IP Visual Alerters come in two forms, single color and multi color. The Algo 8128 IP Visual Alerter is a single-color (white) strobe light used for bringing awareness to audible alerting where noise, noise sensitivity, or hearing impairment is an issue.

The Algo 8138 IP Color Visual Alerter is a four-color strobe light for enhanced visual communication. While both the single and multi-color strobe lights offer different brightness levels and flash patterns, the 8138 as a multi-color strobe offers the addition of various color patterns for flexible signaling.
