  • Epson EB-485Wi Interactive Projector, 30W Powered Speakers & JED Controller

Whittlesea Secondary College commissioned Vision One Australia with the job of upgrading many of their classrooms with new interactive technologies. Twenty five classrooms were installed with Epson EB-485Wi ultra short throw interactive projectors, whilst another three rooms including the school’s Conference Room, VCE, and the Performing Arts Centre all had upgrades of their own.

Accompanying the Epson projectors in the classrooms were 30w powered speaker systems for sound, as well as JED projector keypad controllers for touch button automatic control over the projector’s functions including ON/OFF, source selection, and volume control. The wall plates installed allow users to connect multiple sources to the projector including, PC’s/Laptops, Game Consoles, & Blu-Ray players.

The interactive projectors are all set up to project onto standard classroom whiteboards allowing users with pen touch interactive functionality for annotations, drawings, and many more interactive functions and features.

Adam Lang, Network Manager at the school worked closely with Director Chris Sismanes and Vision One technicians on the project.

Adam explains “As a public school money is very limited as we know, and it was very important for us to not only find a solution that could take us to the cutting edge of technology, but one that could also provide a cost effective outcome in the process. There were a lot of classrooms that we needed to address, and we were keen to get as much value for our dollar as we possibly could. Vision One not only met our criteria, they were able to far exceed our expectations. I have been working with Chris and Vision One for many years now and have had the privilege to work with them on a number of large projects. They are a very professional team with a level of service that is second to none. But at the same time, they have such a personable manner about them that makes you feel incredibly comfortable. I can never question their support. Any time I need anything at all, they are always there to accommodate our needs. I know that there are many audio visual dealers out in the industry, but I can honestly say that I couldn’t be happier that I was fortunate enough to find Chris and his team at Vision One. Their service, support, professionalism, and friendship is something that I value and look forward to continuing in the years ahead”
