Siena College is a high achieving Catholic school for girls. Sienna works towards astounding VCE results, with over 30% of their students achieving an ATAR of 90 or above in 2014. This success is assisted by the school’s strong teaching staff, refined curriculum and advanced facilities.
DIB Australia have completed a range of works at Siena across the years, and look forward to the future of our association. This included audio visual installations for the school’s new student centre in 2015, helping to create a beautiful space which can be read about HERE. The latest job involved installing a projector system for Sienna’s gallery and resource centre. DIB consultants worked closely with the school to design a specialised solution for each room which was then installed by DIB technicians.
It goes without saying that picking the right projector model is critical to any successful projector system. For the two rooms, a EPSON 1985WU Full HD projector was chosen. EPSON are the best selling projectors in the world for good reason. The 1985WU provides amazing colour and image quality, with 3x brighter colours than alternatives. The projector has rich functionality including wireless capabilities, making it perfect to businesses and school alike.
Misuse of audio visual systems stops teachers from being able to harness the full benefits of education technologies. To avoid this, DIB works hard to make every audio visual install simple and intuitive to operate. To accomplish this, both rooms were equipped with Joey Micro control panels. As shown in the image below, these panels simplify the use of the projector system with a small set of buttons. This way teachers or users are not swamped with controls, and can instead quickly and easily begin their lesson or presentation.
The resource centre installation also featured an Apple TV. These modern devices allow mirroring of Apple devices to a display. For example, if a student was presenting their work from an iPad, they could wirelessly mirror the iPad’s display to the projector. This is a fast, simple and versatile way of presenting just virtually anything that you can access from an Apple device.
