Past client of DIB Australia, Mount St. Joseph Girls’ College is a contemporary, high performing school. When constructing their new Wellness Centre, the College came to DIB Australia to handle the audio visual installations. Four displays were to be installed in the new building’s chapel, ‘chill zone’, gathering space, and meeting room.
DIB were brought in early in the construction process, allowing wiring to be installed before walls and ceilings were permanently completed. With cabling hidden this results in a clean, aesthetically-pleasing appearance for the finished AV system.
A DIB audio visual consultant worked closely with the school to assess the space and find the right solution for each room of the new building. For the chapel, an existing display was relocated. For the meeting room and the ‘Elebana’ gathering space Philips BDL6520QL 65″ LED panels were installed. The school’s ‘chill zone’ received a BDL5520QL 55″ panel. These Phillips Q-Line displays are often favoured by DIB for digital signage. They produce a stunningly sharp and clear image regardless of the size of the display. One reason they are desired by schools and business is for their SmartPower feature. This energy saving capability lets the screen’s backlight intensity be controlled to save significantly on energy costs. Energy efficiency is paramount in these displays as they are often left on all day. Finally, the Phillips Q-Line 55- and 65-inch displays are reliable, coming with a 3 year comprehensive warranty.
For all the spaces except the chapel, a JED T430 control panel was installed alongside the displays. Two buttons – one to turn the system on and select source, the other to turn the system off. This simplifies control of the system and does away with easily lost remotes or complex controls.
Each room was also equipped with an Apple TV. These modern devices wirelessly mirror content from an Apple device to a display. It is a quick, simple, and configurable way to share materials from iPads, iPhones, or Macs. Apple TV boxes are a the perfect solution for schools that use iPads or MacBooks in the classrooms.
