Rose ClassView Setup

ClassView consists of a teacher's unit and multiple students' units. The ClassView units are connected together with a single bus cable.

ClassView is easy to install. Simply connect the instructor's and each student's computer, keyboard, monitor, and mouse to each ClassView unit using the Rose UltraCable. Connect the ClassViews together using the bus cable. Set the address of each student's unit from the front panel dip switches and power the units on. The yellow status lights on the front of each unit will flash to show that the units are networked together. Your installation is now complete.

Rose's UltraCable streamlines the cable connections to MultiStation, simplifying cable management and improving system reliability. Each unit comes with a five foot computer, KVM, and bus cable. Connection between the units uses high quality 13W3 video connectors for crystal clear video even at long distances.

When interconnected to the Instructor's ClassView unit, the Instructor's keyboard provides control connections through the keyboard. An instructor keyboard template is provided. It fits over the function keys and gives an easy reference to the keyboard commands to make connections. Entering commands from the student's keyboard is disabled by default, unless it is configured to be able to use the Transfer Mode described below.

The instructor can access any student's computer in three modes. View Mode allows the instructors to see the student's station without disturbing their keyboard or mouse. The Share Mode allows the instructor to see the student's station and interact with the student via keyboard and mouse sharing. The Control Mode allows the instructor to see a student's station and take complete control of the keyboard and mouse. The share mode has an adjustable timeout to optimize the interaction between the student and the teacher.

The instructor can enable and disable any or all student workstations in two modes. Disable Mode allows the instructor to blank out a student's screen and lock out the keyboard and mouse. The Freeze Mode allows the instructor to lock out the keyboard and mouse but keep the student's screen on.

There are three other modes that allow the instructor to work with the class. The Show Mode allows the instructors to show their screen to any, all, or a when lit indicates that video from the computer is being sent to other units. One or more units may be receiving the video.
