Mentone Girls Grammar School, located in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Mentone, is a place where young minds are inspired through learning. This independent school with outstanding results aims to produce truly remarkable women. Mentone Grammar’s mantra is to “develop compassionate, connected, articulate young women who enjoy learning and have the confidence to succeed” (Source Mentone website). In order to develop a globalised outlook and connection to world-class educational tools, Mentone is committed to upgrading and maintaining their technological tools. DIB Australia and Mentone Grammar have had a close working relationship, working together to create technology solutions for a variety of classrooms and communal spaces in the school. See here for more examples of DIB’s previous work at Mentone Grammar.
For this particular install, Mentone Girls Grammar desired a technology solution to update their existing audio visual equipment located in their Wellness Centre. The DIB team consulted Mentone and eventually the LG 65″ Full HD Commercial Lite monitor (integrated HDTV) was selected. The LG LCD monitor has a slim and sleek design for aesthetic viewing. Additionally, the LCD panel boasts high connectivity with two HDMI and one VGA input. This connectivity is utilised as the panel has extremely high quality with Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The panel was installed with a specific LCD wall installation 42″ – 60″ with Swivel and Tilt features so the panel is angled and aimed perfectly.
In order to enhance the display of the panel a sound system was installed. This sound system included 2 x 15W Kramer 2-way stereo speakers and a Stereo plus 8″ Active Subwoofer. The speakers and subwoofer create a sound which is clear and is easily able to fill a room.
The DIB team also fitted the room with connectivity points such as direct IPOD / MP3 3.5mm audio direct speaker connection so that audio can be played without the projection system needing to be turned on. An HDMI plate was also installed to extend connectivity.
An Extron MLC62 Simplified 8 button wall control panel was installed in order to easily command the entire audio-visual system.
