Salisbury University distance learning extends reach with Polycom HDX video infrastructure

Salisbury University, located near the Eastern Shore of Maryland, is a major four-year university with a strong commitment to technology and the educational benefits that it can bring to their students. When recent budget allocations afforded an opportunity to expand their video conferencing and presentation rooms, school IT administrators decided to embrace it to create a new, comprehensive distance learning facility.

Implementing a highly extensible, high definition multiuse video infrastructure based on Polycom HDX solutions, Carousel Industries not only successfully helped to achieve Salisbury’s technology goals, but also revealed new opportunities for future collaboration. This multidisciplinary approach, together with a very efficient project implementation, has enabled Salisbury University to further pursue their long term technology ambitions as a leading, innovative institution of higher education.
