Queen’s College, a residential college at the University of Melbourne is a 300 person coeducational college providing accommodation and a comprehensive tutorial program for the educational and social growth of their university students. The college promotes an educational focus as well as an extra-curricular program including sporting, drama and music opportunities. Queens College as a place where students develop educational and life skills rely on the most up to date technology so that students can develop content and share with their colleagues and friends.
For this particular project, Queen’s College approached the DIB team to update their Junior Common Room in order to provide up to date audio visual technology. In particular, the college was interested in increasing their tech capabilities with a large projector screen and a revamped audio system for clear, loud projection of sound.
In consultation with Queen’s College, DIB Australia selected the EPSON EB-G7800 XGA, 8000 ANSI projector system. This projector has 8000 lumens of brightness and features XGA resolution which allows for a high-resolution image to be produced. This EPSON EB-G7800 projector was cleverly installed from the extremely high ceiling using a Skyhook universal ceiling bracket in order for the projector to be positioned at the correct height.
The projector produced an image onto the new ScreenTechnics 115″ 4:3 screen lowering ElectriCinema screen. This screen both unfurls electronically and descends from a screenbox attached to the roof. This ensures that when the screen is not in operation the JCR appears with the beautiful large windows and wood furnishings uninterrupted (See video).
A Joey Micro 9 simplified wall control panel was installed to easily control the entire system. This control panel features 9 programmable buttons which control functions such as on, off, PC, DVD and TV selection as well as channel up, channel down, volume up and volume down buttons.
HDMI, VGA and Audio input plates are installed at the stage for connectivity. Additionally, a professional grade speaker system was also installed. This included an A AMD200 Class D amplifier with full DSP, installed along with a pair of high-quality wall-mounted XDS8 speakers. An ICON wall control panel was placed to control the volume of these speakers.
For presentations and projection needs two Sennheiser G3 series wireless handheld microphones were installed. This means that staff and students can easily use these microphones to present efficiently to large audiences.
A small AV wall rack and a Large AV floor box were installed in order to house AV systems equipment for the installation. These were installed neatly in recesses so they are both protected and not visible.
