A bright idea for Westmeadows Primary School.
Westmeadows Primary School are a client that DIB helped a few years ago with a projection system in their staffroom. After success with this space, they asked us to design a system for their basketball stadium.
The schools basketball stadium had a lot of ambient light so the challenge was to install a large enough screen so that it could be seen from all locations in the stadium but at the same time have the image bright enough so it was not washed out.
DIB proposed a 12000 ansi lumen EPSON EB -L1505UNL projector which packs a serious punch in terms of brightness. This projector allowed a large 180” motorised screen, measuring 3.9 meters wide x 2.4 meters high to be optioned with confidence that the projector would handle any lighting situation in this space.
The Projector was installed in a security cage offering protection to the projector from wayward basketballs or other wayward objects.
Another feature was a separate long throw lens allowing the projector to be mounted a significant distance from the screen and be secure on the opposite wall.
The main technical challenges in this space were the distance from projector and screen – being handled with the lens. And of course, light, which was handled with an appropriate investment in a more expensive, but ultimately more functional projector. A bright idea for Westmeadows.
