Toorak College has a long history of integrating technology into its learning environments. The presentation space in the Norman Carson Library – used by Year 5 to Year 12 students and previously fitted with a projector and fixed screen solution – was due for an upgrade to meet the school’s evolving demands as an early-adopter of new technologies.
The IT and AV team at Toorak College contracted the technology experts at Vision One to design and deploy a digital video wall solution to suit. Vision One began by supplying and installing 4x NEC X555UNS Video Wall Displays to form a single 2×2 configuration. The 55″ NEC X555UNS utilises S-IPS panel technology to provide a superior signage solution for building video walls with excellent off-angle viewing and far less color shift than traditional video wall panels.
Beneath the video wall, we installed an Audac IMEO1 Sound Bar for presentation audio. The IMEO1 Soundbar features a slim and elegant design and includes all required functions for expansion of any audio visual system with an impressive sound. The acoustics feature two 1.75” high frequency drivers with an RMS rating of 15 Watt and a low frequency section composed of two 2.5” low frequency drivers with an RMS rating of 30 Watt, resulting in an overall 60 Watt RMS rating.
For content, we installed a Kramer VIA GO behind the video wall. VIA GO gives iOS, Android, Chromebook, PC, and Mac users instant wireless connectivity with advanced presentation capabilities. The product features content streaming with crystal−clear mirrored images and stunning video playback and includes iOS, Windows and Android mirroring. VIA GO is easy and flexible to install with both built−in Wi−Fi and LAN connectivity and includes industry−leading 1024−bit encryption for secure use on the internal network.
For control, we installed our reliable and familiar JED T460 Wall Controller, providing ON/OFF, SOURCE selection and VOLUME control.
