Low network bandwidth
Insight requires between 5% and 20% of the bandwidth used by the competition. While showing the teacher’s screen, Insight uses around 24 KB/sec. Monitoring thumbnails requires less than 10 KB/sec. Because Insight uses a broadcast or multicast packet, the bandwidth required for controlling two computers is close to that required by 250 computers. Other product’s bandwidth requirements increase with every additional computer that is monitored.
Insight thwarts attempts by students to disrupt the class by disabling the software. Insight students will re-join the session if the network is unplugged, the service will re-start automatically, and registry keys are protected from change. Savvy students will have the competitive products disabled in minutes.
If you suspect a student is using a unauthorized teacher console, you can quickly identify them with the security monitoring tool. It captures all Insight activity to a log file. There is also a “secure” version of Insight that requires teachers to enter a password to open the console.
Works with Subnets and VLANS
Insight functions across subnets and VLANs using Multicast and Directed Broadcast technology. Port 796 is the only port required.
Low processor and memory requirements
Insight only requires about 4% of the processor and 8 MB of memory on the client.
Unbeatable Support Policy
Insight comes with free telephone and e-mail support.
Insight empowers instructors with the ability to educate, assist, monitor, and communicate with an entire computer lab from one central computer.
