New functionalities are available since August 2021 (see video). Has your try-out period finished, please contact us to extend.
Manage your Education Spaces with one application, store space parameters in the TUDesc database and save AV-IT and furniture properties with it. Take care of equipment’s life-cycles and generate accurate numbers on the spot.
Visualizing Readability and Sightlines makes the fuzzy concept of visual acuity clear and tangible within your Education Spaces. Students should be able to fully concentrate on understanding the subject matter and not be distracted by unreadable formulas or having strained necks.
TUDesc is available in Licenses of Use of up to 20, 50, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and unlimited number of stored education spaces. All employees of your institute are allowed to use the license. The TUDesc Manager assigns permissions to staff up to specific roles for AV, IT, Furniture and Facility Management.
TUDesc is unique in combining related but complex interactions and show these in a few simple sliders easy to manipulate by the user. It holds many bespoke widgets to meet any space configuration, functional not constructional.
TUDesc runs as a containerized, always-on application hosted in Google Kubernetes Engine. It is available to licensed users only, but possible to test before purchase. Although, one has to register.
Audiovisual equipment has gradually taken up a significant larger part of investment when designing education spaces and buildings. Even today, style and design of buildings receive significant attention, while education qualitative related issues are undervalued. Often, this results in expensive changes during the building process, if only possible.
Writing proper Programs of Requirements yourself saves lots of time and money normally spent on third parties before and during building processes.
Responsible AV-IT and Asset managers have complete overview in the Education Space Management page over the stored spaces with aggregated and derivative numbers on campus and building level, and individual parameters on room level.
Designing education spaces properly is one key feature, but managing them with TUDesc has additional advantages. Properties and parameters of education related equipment is not caught in current configuration and building management, such as AV and furniture lifecycles, readability, planned replacements, and 'green' numbers.
Responsible AV-IT and Asset Managers get accurate numbers of combined device and furniture properties for the given education practices.
TUDesc generates aggregated numbers for all stored spaces on its Dashboard and it generates Planned Replacement Lists for AV-IT and Assets based on Lifecycle Parameters, next to regular look-up for upgrade and maintenance. All in one spot, but with different access rights for managers and professionals.
