Blackburn High School is a public secondary school for both girls and boys in years 7 to 12 in Blackburn North, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, founded in 1956.
The school espouses values such as Respect, Pursuit of Excellence and Citizenship.
Like most schools in suburban Melbourne, space is at a premium and with a large student body, the space to hold events, assemblies and public meetings including parents are limited.
The Gymnasium is often the largest space in schools, but is rarely designed in a way that is conducive to light and sound. Hard surfaces, light filled spaces and ball sports also don’t play well with audio visual equipment.
Nonetheless, the professional team at DIB Audiovisual is well versed in solutions to make it work.
In this instance, the team at Blackburn High School wanted to use the Gymnasium configures down the long axis of the room.
To handle optimal viewing angles, DIB proposed a dual projector and screen system.
We coupled this with the latest in high brightness, laser projector technology from Epson.
In this case, we used two EPSON EB-L1505UNL WUXGA 4K Enh 12,000 ANSI Projectors. Installed in security cages.
And lenses which make sure everything is in focus whilst projecting images over several metres from projector to screen. In this project it was two EPSON G7000/Laser – Long throw zoom lens.
The screens were motorised Grandview SmartScreen 200″ 16:10 Projector Screens.
All this was integrated with the schools’ existing audio system.
This was the first time DIB Audiovisual had worked with the school. Our pre-proposal planning meetings, equipment tests and gaining a clear understanding of needs was important in the decision process for the school. We were also able to connect the school into our network of past clients and arrange site visits to similar projects.
DIB Audiovisual takes the time to get the solution right, and we’re all about making great connections.
