Balwyn High School, located in Balwyn North, strives to be the benchmark for educational excellence. Dedicated in fostering intellectual growth and personal development within their students, the school provides a foundation of future success for their students.They are committed to assisting young people become resilient, independent and lifelong learners with the capacity to solve problems, think creatively and think critically. As such, Balwyn High is proactively responding to the rapidly changing local and global environment, better equipping students for the world ahead. Knowing this, the school acknowledges the importance of educational technology, employing new equipment to better facilitate learning.
Balwyn High School worked with the team at DIB Australia to install new AV equipment to match their two new portable buildings. This involved choosing the right equipment to suit the needs of the students and staff who’ll be utilizing these facilities.
For this project, an EPSON EB-696Ui FULL HD 3500 ANSI Interactive Finger Touch Projector was installed in both buildings. The interactivity of the projector perfectly suits the classroom environment: coming with a special pen that can transform a whiteboard into an interactive touch screen, the students can use these pens (or their fingers) to engage with the projected presentations. This adds an element of fun that can innovate the learning landscape. Additionally, the projectors are self-calibrating, making them easy to use and hassle-free.
The 3500 ANSI Lumens output and along with the full HD resolution provides high-quality, crystal clear displays. This allows the projector to create vibrant images that further attracts the attention of students. Since it is an ultra-short throw projector, fewer shadows and glare obscure the clarity of the image.
A pair of Kramer powered stereo speakers was also installed to suit the projectors. These speakers are able to fill the classroom with sound so every students, regardless of where they are in the room, can hear the audio.
For DIB, convenience and simplicity is key. Thus, to simplify the operation of the projector systems, a JED (T460) four button LCD wall control panel was installed. These panels do away with the need for multiple remote controls, compiling all functionality in one place. The panels are set up to include buttons that turn the system on and off, control the volume, and source selection.
To make it easier for staff or students to connect their devices, 3 HDMI input plates were installed, along with VGA and audio input plates and a USB wall plate for interactive display.
