Yarra Valley Grammar has a proud tradition. Established in 1966, the school opened its doors with 135 students. The School has grown to become one of Melbourne’s leading Anglican, Co-educational independent schools with an enrolment profile of 1100 students. The School is committed to offering a diverse curriculum program empowering students with the confidence to achieve their personal best.
The School particularly values the concept of ‘teamwork’ and this extends to all disciplines. An example of this is the School’s state-of-the-art sports facilities incorporating extensive playing fields, swimming pool, synthetic hockey pitch and tennis courts, two gymnasiums, fully equipped weights room, change room facilities and seating for up to 200 spectators. With these facilities, the School has consistently performed well on the sporting scene.
To compliment the sports curriculum, the School was looking to technology to enhance the offering; a digital signage solution to display dynamic pictures of students competing at state, national and international levels.
The Performing Arts Centre manager Mr. Paul Sherriff approached DIB Australia seeking a solution. Once briefed, DIB Australia solution consultant Sam Garden proposed the installation of a 42’’ Panasonic Basic HD Professional plasma panel, bundled with market leading PADS digital signage software application. This application comes complete with the backend server software and editing software allowing full control of screen content, advanced schedule, integration with websites, RSS feeds etc.
A very high spec compact digital signage PC was mounted behind the plasma panel with full network connectivity capabilities. This compact low power machine will cater to a variety of digital signage applications with embedded video, web pages, scrolling text and more, all simultaneously as required.
With the new digital signage system installed at the entrance of the Sports Complex, Yarra Valley Grammar is able to display photos of sports competitions and dynamically update content, all with the aim of further empowering students with the confidence to achieve their personal best.
