As one of Australia’s leading girls’ schools, St Catherine’s School is dedicated to providing young women with a comprehensive and enthralling education fit for the modern age. St Catherine’s hopes to foster a vibrant learning environment that nurtures and empowers students, shaping them into independent and globally responsive young women who are not afraid to approach current and future opportunities with confidence, wisdom and integrity. To facilitate effective teaching and learning, St Catherine’s recognises that using the most up-to-date educational technologies is essential.
DIB was happy to work with St Catherine’s in installing new audiovisual equipment inside their Junior School. After consulting with the school to determine what their requirements were for the space, DIB designed a project featuring the installation of touchscreen monitors across twenty classrooms.
In all of the classrooms, a 75″ CommBox Classic Interactive touch monitor was installed. With an ultra HD, 4K (3840×2160) resolution, this bright, versatile monitor adds an extra element of interactivity to every lesson. Utilising combined infrared and camera technology for ultra fast and accurate touch response, the CommBox can register four points of touch at any one time, allowing multiple students/staff to interact with the display. The CommBox screen was wall-mounted on a motorised bracket, accommodating for different heights by lowering or raising the position of the monitor.
For audio reinforcement, DIB installed a CommBox soundbar. Hanging directly off of the CommBox screen, this soundbar is not only effective in carrying sound throughout the classroom, but complements the modern, sleek aesthetic of the monitor.
For a more intuitive and user-friendly control of the new system, the team programmed and installed a CommBox Control Hub 9. Comprising of a Joey Micro 9 control panel and an input plate (HDMI/USB/VGA/Audio), this control hub enables users to access the important functions of the system with a single touch of a button. Users can also locally connect their devices to the monitor using the various inputs.
For a wireless way of presenting content, a VIVI wireless receiver was also installed. This wireless presentation system allows both students and staff to share content from their devices, allowing for a more open, collaborative classroom.
