The motto for Broadmeadows Special Development School is Embrace your Ability.
For a school providing educational programs for primary and secondary school-aged
students with a moderate to profound intellectual disability, sensory and physical
impairments, and Autism Spectrum Disorder, this is an inspirational statement.
When the school approached DIB to assist with the installation of some audiovisual
equipment we were naturally delighted to help.
The school is a modern purpose built facility located in the Melbourne suburb of
Broadmeadows and provides an attractive and safe environment.
Quality audiovisual equipment can enhance the learning for any student, and this includes
those with some physical or intellectual disability.
In this instance, DIB proposed the use of the The CommBox Interactive Classic V3
premium touchscreen. This product provides a simple, clean interface that supports
pedagogy with built-in web browser, whiteboard and screenshare.
Apart from a wide range of cool high tech features, a big decision point for the school was
the 5mm toughened glass on this product, making it able to withstand some tough
treatment in the classroom.
Here are some other key features of the CommBox Interactive Classic V3:
– Instant Whiteboarding – without connecting a laptop or PC. The CommBox Whiteboard
supports multi-touch and has an infinite canvas. Share & collaborate on your
– Clickview Built-in – Browse, view and play content from your ClickView library without
the need for a PC.
– Built-in screenshare – Connect up to four devices wirelessly and simultaneously, then
remote control your touchscreen.
– VIVI Built-in – Access Vivi screen mirroring and video streaming as well as classroom
communications and emergency broadcasts without a laptop or PC connected.
The touchscreen also incorporates CommBox Glide™ Technology, ensuring that the
panels are smooth and frictionless to touch.
The Commbox team also offer seamless updates to apps and software. Remote
management of your devices is available through Commbox central control portal.
DIB specified height adjustable wall mounts to make the screen accessible for everyone.
Not only students with special needs, but different age groups as room use changes year
Being a touch screen, the most important thing is that students are able to comfortably
interact with it, and then if being used as a display, or the teacher is presenting something,
it can be raised to a more comfortable level.
DIB Audiovisual also installed a Commbox Soundbar with this system.
The team are justifiably proud of this installation, supporting special needs children in
