AV Equipment Installation At Universidad Privada Boliviana

The EUBBC-Digital team from Universidad Privada Boliviana (UPB-BOL), has developed and implemented the first remote laboratory in Bolivia, in the area of optical spectrometry.

We started to follow the actual internal purchasing procedure for the AV equipment based on the list of quotations resulting from WP6.2 (terms-of-reference for the AV equipment) for UPB-BOL.  Most of the items were purchased from local suppliers, whereas those that were not available locally or which price was lower from an international on-line e-commerce site (including transport and customs), were purchased and imported. Fig. 2 shows part of the AV equipment that was purchased.

For the installation of the “AV System Kit” equipment, one classroom and one laboratory (Physics Laboratory) were selected to be equipped with the purchased AV devices. Fig. 4. shows the installation process of the AV equipment (Poly Studio HD camera, sound system, 3600 lumens projector, 27” monitor, desktop PC) in the classroom and laboratory.

To ensure the visibility of the EUBBC-Digital project, we placed information plates In both the classroom and the laboratory that were equipped with the AV System Kits funded by the project. The information plates include the name and number of the project, the Erasmus+, the EUBBC-Digital, and all the project partner’s logos.
