Lecture theatres are designed to effectively communicate to a large audience of students whilst keeping them engaged. The use of audio visual technology facilitates engagement and communication within lecture theatres due to the ability to control visual imagery and sound simultaneously for the purpose of the presentation that is to be communicated.

The lecture theatre combines audio visual equipment to deliver and stimulate students on a visual and intellectual level. Large screen projectors can be used in conjunction with interactive panels to allow the lecturer to truly engage. The use of visualisers and document cameras, allows the lecturer to engage with the audience in new and exciting ways, displaying 3d images and objects to enhance the learning experience.

Programme sound and voice reinforcement means the lecturer never has to go unheard.

IP cameras, IP networks and Lecture Capture systems with text support take the lecture theatre to a truly global audience. Live video can be streamed across the internet to anyone with a web enabled computer. Text support and video link allows for the communication and interaction of these remote students. Via the internet, students and other educational establishments can come together for a single lecture, each collaborating and sharing information instantaneously. Lectures can then be recorded and stored and accessed via server or the cloud.

Lecture theatres that contain audio visual equipment should be operable by individuals with or without technical expertise. An intuitive integrated system is required in today's lecture theatres, where everything is controlled from a single multi-functional panel. Control is now at the lecturer's fingertips, at a press of a single button, so intuitive it allows them to concentrate on delivering the lecture.
