Mount Lilydale Mercy College, or MLMC, is a catholic co-educational school in Lilydale which has been catering to the needs of students from the Yarra Valley and outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne for the past 115 years.
The young men and women of MLMC are taught the important values of spirituality, learning and community in a supportive and nurturing environment.
Always exploring new ways to assist in enhancing the academic achievement of the 1500 students, the IT team at MLMC approached DIB with an idea to upgrade their Home Economics classrooms with some of the latest in video capturing and recording technology, helping to make the food preparation and cooking lessons more visual and valuable for the students.
By using two high quality EVO 2 dome cameras installed over the demonstration bench the teacher is able to not only show the demonstration projected live at the front of their classroom using a new Epson projector, but coupled with the installation of a Digital Video Recorder, or DVR, the teacher is then able to record the lesson with their audio instructions with a click of a button so students are able to review any of the recorded lessons!
The Extron MLC226 control panel installed and programmed by DIB also allows the teacher to easily switch between which cameras, either above preparation area or above stove-top, are being projected. The panel also includes buttons such as record start/stop and microphone up/down making the system simple to use.
Bundled with the supply of a Wireless Headworn Microphone and installation of four flush mounted ceiling speakers, students are given the complete solution to viewing and hearing a demonstration happening at the front of the room from anywhere in the classroom, no more crowding around the bench!
