‘Next Generation’ SONY Virtuoso language lab software

SONY Virtuoso is already the digital language lab of choice for hundreds of UK schools, colleges and universities and is the complete language lab solution allowing access on site, across campus, from site to site and from home.

SONY Virtuoso is entirely software based and requires no proprietary hardware, extra networks, cables and works with all standard industrial format software. At its heart it completely repositions the concept of a language lab from a static location based technology to a site wide multi location based software programme. This delivers substantial savings in terms of costs as software enables teachers to share resources out from a central server and at the same time widen access across campus and local authority schools. SONY Virtuoso now works on wireless networks and has an integrated browser version for remote and home access.

A comprehensive annual ICT support and staff training programme is included within the purchase price of SONY Virtuoso to ensure that our SONY software is successfully embedded with an educational environment.Visit our Stand N54 for hands-on demos of ‘Next Generation’ Language Lab SONY Virtuoso.  Visit our Sony Virtuoso webpages here for more.

ConnectED is Sony PlayStation’s accredited educational channel.
