Jacksonville, OR (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
Global Caché, the award winning provider of IP-enabling products for homes and businesses, announced today it has signed 1UControl as a Value Added Reseller (VAR) to sell and support Global Caché products as part of their new multimedia control system for K-12 educational environments. The 1UControl solutions are part of LG Electronics' Digital Classroom pilot programs.
Global Caché's flagship product, the GC-100 Network Adapter, is designed to IP-enable devices and appliances that otherwise could not be connected to a network, bringing Ethernet connectivity to infrared (IR) devices, serial (RS232) devices, and relay switches (contact closure), allowing them to be controlled using IP-based software. Global Caché also supplies IR learning devices, IR receivers, and sensors for use over networks.
1UControl's multimedia control system, 1UControl, automates audio/visual equipment for K-12 educational facilities. 1UControl is available in several configurations, from the basic classroom control option to administrative software for automating and maintaining an entire system-wide deployment. 1UControl software, tightly integrated with Global Caché products, is the control piece for the LG Electronics Digital Classroom.
"We're delighted that 1UControl and LG Electronics have chosen the GC-100 as part of their Digital Classroom," said Walt Keller, Global Caché President. "By combining 1UControl software, LG displays, and our connectivity products, an exciting turn-key solution for educators and the IT people maintaining their environment is easily accessible at a cost-effective price point. We are very pleased to be part of this solution."
Kevin Cleary, 1UControl President agrees "Global Caché's Network Adapter is the perfect device for our Digital Classroom. We are focused on the quickly expanding K-12 A/V market. The fact that LG Electronics is plugging the solution into their channel, with training, demonstration kits, and pilots, definitely gives us a big boost out of the gate with our product. In the short while we have been marketing, we have hundreds of classrooms sold, with several more hundreds expected this year. The solution definitely makes good educational sense. With 1UControl software and Global Caché, we offer strong network management, control and reporting of school district assets."
