The Echo360 POD is the tabletop capture device, designed for smaller venues, created and distributed by Echo360. It was placed into service in May 2016.
The Echo360 POD can be set on a tabletop or shelf that allows access to the input ports on the back.
The allowable operating temperature of the Echo360 POD device is between 0° – 45° C (32° – 113° F). Be sure to install the device in a location where the temperature around the unit does not exceed this limit. If operated in an environment where temperatures exceed this limit, the unit may overheat and malfunction permanently.
Echo360 active learning platform.
Unsupported Resolutions: The POD does not support capturing at 1920x1200.
We currently support two channel PCM encoded audio over HDMI, however, high data rate encoded audio (like Dolby 5.1) is not supported.
All selected audio inputs are mixed. Meaning if HDMI and/or USB audio is enabled for either/both video channels, the sound feed from the input(s) will be combined and synced with the Audio channel feed (Balanced or Unbalanced). To use ONLY the HDMI or USB audio, select None or Mute for the Audio channel input.
The POD is configured with two MAC addresses to support the additional connectivity. The "odd numbered" MAC address is for wireless communication. The Echo360 POD contains wireless connectivity capability for when the device is being used in a room where wired Ethernet connections are not available.
If a wired connection is available, you are strongly urged to use that instead. The wired connection is configured using the even-numbered MAC address. This is the one you should use to add the device to a room. However if using wireless becomes necessary, you can change the room device assignment to use the odd-numbered (wireless) one.
NOTE: The POD cannot do live streaming over wireless; if you wish to generate a Live streamed class using the POD, be sure to use a wired ethernet connection for the appliance.
