Captus Systems Included in New “Zoom for Dummies” Book!

Captus Systems is proud to announce that we’ve been included in the new Zoom for Dummies book, by Phil Simon. Having heard that Captus Systems is a Zoom Certified Pro AV Integrator Partner, Mr. Simon approached us to contribute a Zoom-related success story for his up-and-coming book – & we happily agreed. Below are paraphrased excerpts from page 290 of the new Zoom for Dummies book – the entire page of which is dedicated to Drew University’s Roll-Out of Zoom Rooms & how Captus Systems designed a very successful solution.

Located in Madison, NJ, Drew University is home to more than 2,000 undergraduate & graduate students. The university consists of three different schools, including Drew Theological School (DTS). Historically, DTS has appealed to older students, some of whom are in their 60s, & many of whom hold part or full-time jobs. To this end, DTS held many of its classes remotely. (As was reported by Shawn Spaventa, the school’s Director of Instructional Technology.)

After having used Webex for a few years with mixed results, Spaventa was looking for a new platform. He heard good things about Zoom & signed-up Drew with Zoom’s “Meetings & Chat” in 2015.

Moving forward, the Dean of DTS, Javier Viera – along with Associate Dean, Melanie Johnson-DeBaufre, wanted to do more – especially with Drew’s teleconferencing technology. They envisioned location-independent, synchronous learning via small classes, that would appeal to the school’s older students with long commutes & full-time jobs.

Having already seen the benefits of Zoom’s “Meetings & Chat,” Spaventa decided to up the ante with Zoom Rooms. To that end, Drew brought-in Captus Systems. Together, Drew & Captus Systems reviewed hardware requirements for setting-up the rooms, & Drew University launched its updated Zoom Rooms in 2018.


Being a Zoom Certified Pro AV Integrator, Captus Systems has the vast knowledge & expertise that it takes to help any organization get up to speed with the very latest in teleconferencing technology…

and the success with Drew University is only the tip of the iceberg!

Yeah. Together, We’ve Got This!
