Rutgers Room Control Software

Invention Summary:

Created by the Rutgers’ Classroom Technology Service team, the Rutgers Room Control software provides faculty with state of the art technology for communicating information to a group. Rather than requiring specific technologies or restricting the types of tools presenters can use; the Room Control Software provides a wide variety of tools for use by a presenter. This gives presenters flexibility with respect to how they chose to deliver information to their audience. 

The Room Control Software operates on a standard computer and supports popular computer-based presentation software, high-definition film screening, digital video and the projection of camera-captured demonstrations. Whiteboard annotation software and over forty additional applications are available for use.

The Room Control Software provides:

  • A consistent user experience that enables presenters to learn one system versus multiple unique room setups
  • The ability to use cutting-edge technologies to make an audience experience exhilarating and personal

Market Applications:

  • Educational institutions such as colleges, universities, K-12, etc.
  • Conference facilities such as convention centers and hotels and/or suppliers of equipment for them


  • Supports a wide array of hardware and software
  • Allows completely integrated use of audio, video and the projection of information displayed on a computer or captured by a camera
  • Useful in any setting that provides room presentation capabilities; e.g., in meeting rooms, classrooms, theaters and similar spaces
