Since first opening it’s doors to students in Term 1 of 1999, Aitken College, an independent, co-education school of the Uniting Church located in Greenvale, has strived to consistently provide an environment in which students are able to achieve their full potential, and to expand and grow their skills and intellect.
In keeping with their strong values of inspiring academic achievement and creativity, Aitken College decided to overhaul over 70 classrooms with the latest in Audio Visual technology to allow their students to have all the tools and resources to enable them to get the very most out of every lesson.
Consistency was key with an upgrade of this size. DIB and Aitken College worked together to put together a ‘standard’ classroom set-up which was trialled in one classroom in 2016. Once the benchmark had been set, a proposal was put together to have this deployed in over 70 classrooms. Due to the magnitude of work, it was extremely important to not disrupt classes, therefore a strategy was worked out with DIB and Aitken College to schedule the work to begin in Senior Rooms after the VCE exams had finished, with the Middle and Junior rooms being completed over the Christmas Holidays.
Epson EB-585W Ultra Short Throw Projectors were installed onto very large 1.4m x 3.6m whiteboards. This meant each room featured a large 100” projected image size, plus a substantial amount of free space to side of image for whiteboarding notes.
JOEY Control systems were installed with each installation, which enabled teachers to easily move from room to room and not worry about the remotes. The switching between Laptop and Apple TV inputs could also be done by an easy click of a button.
As a part of these works, DIB also installed a CommBox Classic Interactive 80″ Full HD Touchscreen panel into the newly refurbished Library. The Commbox panel was installed on a CommBox Motorised Bracket mounted onto the wall. This bracket allows for the panel to be easily electronically raised or lowered by the teacher. As the Library space was used by a wide range of school levels, this feature was ideal.
DIB Solutions Consultant, Production Manager and Senior Technician worked closely with Aitken College every step of the way, during the planning and installation of this project. A 5 year extended on-site warranty was also put in place which ensures school will not have to worry about dealing with faulty projector systems for the duration of the 5 years.
