DIB worked with long-time client Melbourne Girls’ Grammar School to install an audio visual upgrade to the school’s Ross Hall theatrette. This included an upgraded Epson projector, a new motorised projector screen, and audio integration with the school’s existing system. These works occured in conjunction with two projector installations in the school library conference room and research areas which will be covered in a later blog post.
A DIB Solutions Consultant worked closely with the school to assess their needs and design the right AV system to fit the space. This also involved a site visit to the school in order to deliver the highest quality result. The school’s old system was tricky to control with sub-par picture quality. For the upgraded projector, an Epson G-series EB-G6270W was installed. Ultimately, image quality is one of the most important deciding factors for any theatre installation. The Epson G-series excells in this regard. It features 3LCD technology which results in colours that are three times brighter than leading competitive projectors. This results in a bright and vibrant image, making for a truly impressive viewing experience. With 6,500 lumens, the projector gives off a bright image even when there is light in the room.
The G-series projector displays onto a Grandview motorised smartscreen stretching 140 inches. The screen can retract at the touch of a button using the JED control panel. This wall control panel was relocated and reprogrammed to fit the new AV system. It simplifies control of the theatre, allowing users to turn on the whole system and lower the screen with a single button-press while an LCD screen clearly displays what state the projector is in. An ICON control panel was installed alongside the JED to handle volume control and easy selection of audio source from the microphone, projector, or aux inputs. Overall this design worked to simplify the system.
This theatre upgrade will provide staff with an easy way to deliver high quality presentations and stunning viewing experiences. The overall result is an easier to use, cleaner, brighter, and more powerful theatre projector system. Melbourne Girls’ Grammar School were a pleasure to work with and DIB look forward to our future association.
