Heathmont College is a coeducational government secondary college located in Heathmont, Victoria. It is located between Waters Grove, Marlborough Road and Hardy Crescent. Beginning in 2020, Vision One were approached by the team at vtas Architects to design and deliver a “showpiece” audio visual system for Heathmont College’s brand-new multi-purpose hall.
The brief was simple: audio and visual excellence, by any means necessary! We kicked things off with the supply and installation of two 2×2 LG Video Wall Display Panels, strategically positioned on either side of the presentation area. The video walls were housed within custom-built Ultralift frames, complete with stylish side-shrouds and protective Perspex glass.
Two Audac GIAX Column Speakers were installed immediately beside each video wall cluster while the lower end was complimented by 2x conveniently-mounted BASO12 12″ subwoofers. Again, Ultralift came to the rescue, designing and manufacturing unobtrusive and protective speaker cages for each audio element. The GIAX is a design column speaker with an extraordinary sound and surprising high power for use in all applications where audibility of music and speech is most important. It features a line array with 24 special designed 2″ drivers, which are located on precisely calculated locations to accomplish a wide sound dispersion, while it gives the impression of listening to just a single sound source but with a more distributed sound coverage.
A Dual Sennheiser Wireless Microphone system was also installed, offering the school wireless and handheld presentation capabilities.
Inside a 12RU Equipment Rack located in the store room, we installed an Audac SMQ350 Power Amplifier and a PRE116 Mixer. The SMQ350’s WaveDynamics™ DSP processor in combination with the 2.5” LCD display gives an unmatched user experience with intuitive functions overview for easy configuration.
For connectivity, a Kramer-powered HDBaseT/HDMI Wall Plate Transmitter was installed on the side of the stage, while a custom Vision One JED T460 Wall Controller delivers system operation and general control.
A Kramer VIA GO2 Wireless Presentation Device was also provided for wireless mirroring/streaming from any device.
