Melbourne has many picturesque bayside locations providing residents with a unique balance of big city living in idyllic waterfront surroundings. One of the prettiest is Hobsons Bay, about 10 kilometres west of central Melbourne.
Hobsons Bay City Council services the area’s 96,000 residents, providing a range of services to the local community.
The Council’s ICT team approached DIB AudioVisual to upgrade Council’s ageing audiovisual system used in the Council Chamber, where all important public Council Meetings are held. The new system needed to ensure ease of access and better meet the needs of Councillors, staff and residents.
DIB Audio Visual recently completed an AV upgrade to Hobsons Bay City Council’s Chambers, featuring a new 3 metre Grandview Motorised Smart-Screen Projector Screen.
A grand view
Epson’s versatile EB-G7500UNL multimedia projector is the heart of the upgraded system. The projector provides crystal clear clarity thanks to 4K enhancement – ideal for presentations in the brightly lit Council Chamber. To do justice to the Epson projectors superb 4 K output, DIB selected the Grandview Motorised Smart-Screen Projector Screen. Measuring 3 metres by 1.8 metres, the Grandview’s vast size ensures content is easily viewed from anywhere in the Council Chamber. Being motorised, the screen rolls up and out of the way at the touch of a button. The upgrade also included a 1.9-metre confidence preview monitor, mounted on the opposite side of the chamber to the projector screen, allowing Councillors to see what was being presented on the main screen.
An enriched collaboration capability was added to the upgrade thanks to the installation of Airtame and Miracast wireless collaboration devices.
The upgrade also included a 1.9-metre confidence preview monitor, mounted on the opposite side of the chamber.
Easy to use design built-in
The DIB team ensured easy-to-use control of the new audiovisual system by designing and installing a full-colour Extron TLP Pro Tabletop touchscreen controller coupled with the Extron IPL Pro S3 IP Link Pro Control Processor. We ensure absolute simplicity of operation by designing our systems so that 80% of the user requirement is accessible within one to three button presses.
