Apollo Parkways Primary School, located in Greensborough, provides an opportunity for all students to experience an extensive curriculum in a caring, yet challenging atmosphere.

The school values life long learning in a global community, encouraging their students to reach their full potential whilst preparing them for their school years ahead. Apollo Parkways acknowledges the importance of educational technology, integrating a wide range of computers and technologies into the schooling system to support the curriculum and establishing the use of ICT as a regular part of all learning.
The school engaged the team at DIB with the intention of upgrading the AV system in eight of their classrooms. This involved updating the projector and speaker systems.
An EPSON EB-685Wi 3500 ANSI WXGA Ultra Short Throw Interactive Projector was chosen for this project. These projectors are particularly suited for the classroom environment, as the projector features a special pen that can turn any whiteboard into a giant touchscreen without any additional hardware. The projectors are easy and intuitive to use for both students and staff, as the projectors are self-calibrating. They further add a hands-on experience, particularly with the dual pen functionality.
The projector’s 3500 ANSI Lumens of output ensure that projected images are bright and vibrant, making engaging and captivating to look at. Further, as the projector is an ultra short throw, less shadows and glare obfuscate the clarity of the images.
An EPSON 30 Watt external powered speaker system was also installed by DIB. This speaker system features an auxiliary input, which can be used to connect external iPod or MP3 devices and play audio without the projector needing to be open.
The projector has a variety of ways through which users can connect their external devices. The wireless connectivity of the projector means that users can monitor, control and present from a remote locations should they choose to do so. The projector also has HDMI and USB inputs for more local connectivity.
