Boxlight Launches Unified Solution for Campus Communication, Instruction, and Safety

Ed-tech solutions company Boxlight recently announced the debut of FrontRow UNITY and FrontRow UNITY Campus at ISTELive 2024 in Denver, Colo., according to a news release. The product unifies solutions for institutional technology, campus communication, classroom audio, and emergency notification and response into a single device. The goal was to address a variety of educational communication issues facing administrators, teachers, students, and IT staff alike.

"UNITY is a comprehensive solution. Its user-friendly interface makes it easy for teachers, while the networked back end simplifies remote support and provisioning for IT staff,” said Boxlight Americas Executive Vice President and General Manager Jens Holstebro. “Plus, UNITY’s no/low-install footprint and ability to integrate with existing campus communication infrastructure make it budget-friendly—enabling districts to maximize resources without compromising on clear instruction and announcements, while keeping students and staff informed and safe. No other product on the market matches UNITY's versatility, showcasing Boxlight's commitment to innovation and our ability to leverage 40 years of partnership with the K-12 community to meet their functional and financial needs with unique, proprietary technologies.”

UNITY is powered by FrontRow’s ELEVATE technology and utilizes many of the company’s other smart technologies, including OptiVoice+, PrivaSee, Solo, PrioriTeach+, and Adapto+. UNITY Campus expands functionality across an entire school’s communication system to include bells, intercom, paging, public announcements, and campus alerts. UNITY Campus combined with FrontRow Conductor moves into the emergency communication space by taking advantage of existing technology. ClassLight provides visual cues while Attention! offers simultaneous audio-visual alerts.

IT staff can deploy and update UNITY through FrontRow’s rollout app, which can update firmware across multiple devices. The device was designed for placement in locations like panel carts, wall mounts, desks, and bookshelves, according to the news release.
