Penola Catholic College goes hi-tech with their new Sports Hall

Penola Catholic College is a co-ed college situated on two campuses, located the Melbourne suburbs of  Broadmeadows and Glenroy. The college focuses on holistically educating students, focussing on both academic endeavours and extracurricular activities. Penola Catholic College provides the most up to date technology to help students to learn with ease and master their subjects.

Penola College approached DIB Australia as they were after a complete makeover for their newly renovated Glenroy Sports Hall located on their Broadmeadows Campus. Primarily, an EPSON EB-Z11000W, 11,000 ANSI, WXGA, Dual lamp projector + long throw lens was installed as a commercial grade projector capable of producing high-quality images from long distances. This is installed in a recess in a wall and protected by a visually appealing custom steel projection case to prevent any potential damage.

This projector image is used along with a Grandview 180″ SmartScreen motorised screen which descends from a screen box attached to the roof. This allows for high-quality video when needed, and when sports are being played in the hall the screen can be fully retracted. VGA, HDMI (extended by BaseT cabling) and Audio inputs were installed in both the front and back of the hall, available to use to connect devices to the audiovisual technology system.

The Sports Hall also was improved with the addition of a brand new audio system. This audio system included a commercial grade audio system with AMD amplifier at the core complete with EQ and DSP control. This amplifier system feeds to four wall mounted 2-way speakers positioned throughout the space. All of the speakers are protected by custom covers. Additionally, this sound system is controlled by two ICON control panels positioned at the front and rear of the space which allows for easy access and control of the speaker system including the microphones and AUX inputs.

Two JED T460R4 control systems were also installed in the front and the rear. This will allow easy control of the entire audio-visual system, including the lowering of the projector screen, HDMI and VGA. The Kramer vision scaler and switcher system installed also helps manage a large number of inputs within the space.

Four separate Sennheiser wireless microphone systems will be installed in the sports hall. These include three handheld and one lapel microphone. These microphones will allow for easy, loud projection for assemblies, presentations and sports games.
