Communication system enables all devices to receive alerts during critical moments
In an emergency, notifying all students, staff and visitors in the school building of a situation within seconds is critical. Today, Galaxy Next Generation, Inc. (OTCQB:GAXY) (“Galaxy” or the “Company”), a provider of interactive learning technology solutions, announces the availability of G2 Visual Alerts for schools. G2 Visual Alerts sends a message – both text and image – to any device in a school district.
“The human brain processes images up to 60,000 times faster than spoken words,” said Gary LeCroy, Chief Executive Officer of Galaxy. “G2 Visual Alerts is a first-to-market solution for quick, simple and timely communications, whether that be for an emergency or a general announcement.”
Powering G2 Visual Alerts, the G2 Communicator application displays visual messages on the screens of PC, Mac, Chromebook, or interactive flat panel devices, and is compatible with Android, Mac OS, Windows and Chrome operating systems. G2 Visual Alerts can be sent to all devices on the campus network, or to a selected group of devices.
While school districts prepare for multiple learning modalities in the 2021-22 school year, G2 Visual Alerts are enabled for building use, as well as off-campus use. Educators and students accessing issued devices remotely can also receive real-time, visual communication no matter their location.
“As a former classroom teacher, it was important to me that we designed G2 Visual Alerts with educators in mind. Alerts can be pushed to all devices within a school system, which is critical because administrators often procure devices from multiple manufacturers over time,” said Shawn Wheeler, Chief Technology Officer of Galaxy. “There’s initial excitement from our pilot community to offer immediate visual communication.”
Future plans for G2 Visual Alerts include digital signage capabilities for enhanced visual communication.
