July 31, 2008 | Chris Payatagool

DAYTON, Ohio - On Friday, July 18, PangeAir, the Digital Airline Service, together with
eCampus, celebrated the much anticipated grand opening of their first franchise at the
Dayton Convention Center. Local and state government officials, television media and
the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce gathered for the unveiling of a newly available
public-access video communications and media solution, known as Dayton's PangeAir

The PangeAir telepresence solution is available for colleges and universities to be able to
provide distant education and training opportunities for their students through
instructor-led classes. Participants can interact and share data with one another
through video on the two high-definition 65-inch LCD monitors, thus eliminating
expensive, time-consuming and exhausting physical travel. Up to 25 people can join a
class from inside the state-of-the-art suite in the Dayton Convention Center, and
communicate with multiple locations as though they are face-to-face.

The concept for eCampus comes at a time when there doesn't seem to be an end in site
to the ever-increasing gas prices plaguing the nation. Utilizing telepresence technology,
they can bring the classroom to the student when the student can't get to the
classroom. eCampus's goal is to deploy facilities to every county seat in the nation, so
each citizen can have multiple universities to choose from right in their hometown.
Students can benefit from university curriculum without having to travel beyond their
city limits.

PangeAir is a franchisor that has identified potential audiences who could benefit from
public access video communications suites, from corporations to universities, healthcare
to law. Foreseeing an opportunity to create face-to-face interaction without the need for
travel, they understood that telepresence technology had endless applications. "Dayton
is the birthplace of aviation and this is the beginning of a brand new business and
education travel venue, the launch of a digital aviation gateway," said David Allen,
chairman of PangeAir. For more information regarding new cities coming online this
