In a school crisis situation, regardless of the scenario, clear and steady communication is critical to the safety and well-being of students, teachers, and administrators. Modern mass notification technology that delivers messages to people on- or offsite is required in many school districts to address these challenges. Every second matters, and many schools and districts have turned to AtlasIED’s IPX platform to help direct people to safety faster. The IPX platform offers a comprehensive and cost-effective mass communications solution that can be easily incorporated into new construction or retrofit projects. The IPX product family, including loudspeakers and text displays, connects through a school’s IT network using standard ethernet cables. Many of the IPX family’s visual displays include built-in speakers allowing schools to reduce complexity and cost. The products can be installed in classrooms, gymnasiums, offices and hallways to broadcast audible and visual notifications for routine and emergency communications.
