Want to really engage students in subjects? Or show off the great work students are creating on screens around school? We can advise on a huge range of audio visual (AV) solutions that are perfect for education, including touch displays, projectors, whiteboards, digital delivery and signage. And of course, our AV team can set the whole lot up for you, and provide training to make sure you’re getting the most from your kit.
Digital delivery and signage
Once your students have created all their fantastic class projects, don’t just leave them sat on the server – start showing off students’ video, animations and presentations by streaming them around the site. Along with your own branded messages and announcements, it’s a great way to let your students’ hard work shine (as well as help develop your institution’s identity, and look seriously impressive to visitors on open days). Here are a few of the solutions we recommend…
Digital signage and video walls
We can tailor-make and install a full digital signage system or video wall based on your school’s exact requirements and space. We can also provide training to get staff familiar with how to create, update and schedule content, so they can manage the entire system themselves with very little effort.Ask about digital signage
Affordable media streaming with Apple TV
With Apple TV, you can wirelessly stream video, images and presentations directly to your existing displays or TVs, hook it up with an HDMI cable, plug in to your classroom’s projector with a Kanex ATV Pro adapter, and even stream your Mac or iPad’s screen through Apple AirPlay to run your class through what you’re doing on your own screen. All from a tiny, portable box.Shop now
TrilbyTV is the number one digital signage platform made for education. Students can easily express themselves when given a platform that encourages student voice and ownership. Work smarter and encourage collaboration by sharing inspiring examples of best practice. We work closely with TrilbyTV to install their solution, and have seen that parents, governors and the wider community have all been impressed with the work created at school.Ask about TrilbyTV
Connecting staff and students at Bulwell Academy
The Academy’s new state-of-the-art building was to be divided into five vertically grouped ‘business community’ areas, and staff wanted to be able to share specific year group information like lunch menus and library updates effectively with students and visitors in each one. They asked us to help them find a solution that would be easy to use by students and staff alike.
“The consultation process was very positive: several meetings took place to allow discussions about the product and to establish our needs... Anthony was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.”
Scott Burnside, Senior Vice Principal, Bulwell Academy.
