Had a chat with UofA regarding the two Sanako packages and found out a few things.
1) Study 1200 is not a low-cost option. We can expect it to be many tens of thousands.
2) There is no group conversation available in Study 1200 so telephone calls are out.
3) Latency is noticeable, especially when students can see and hear the teacher speaking.
4) If we move the labs and replace our existing headsets, we should purchase MB Quart MBK C 800 USB electret headsets (we are currently using an old version of the MB Quart headsets).
To make the decision (move Lab 300 vs. switch to Study 1200) we will need to get a quote for the Study 1200 (headsets for all stations and teacher/student station software licenses) and compare it to a UVic provided ballpark guess regarding the cost of moving the Lab 300, plus buying new headsets and extra licenses to cover the extra stations we add.
