ABOUT SHERIDAN COLLEGE
Founded in 1967, Sheridan has grown from a locally-based college of only 400 students to a dynamic and innovative institution with a student population of 14,000 full-time and 35,000 continuing education students across 2 campuses located in Brampton and Oakville, Ontario. Today, Sheridan attracts students from across the country and around the world and is nationally and internationally recognized for excellence in business, digital media and communications, performing arts, visual arts and design, applied computing, telecommunications, engineering, manufacturing sciences and community service studies.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Advanced is pleased to have been a key partner to Sheridan College since 1999, providing complete audiovisual and collaboration solutions for classrooms across both the Brampton and Oakville campuses. The Integrated AV projects have ranged in size from literally hundreds of basic classrooms, to the design and installation of specialty spaces such as the President’s Boardroom, Cosmetics Lab, Lecture Halls and Amphitheatre, the Child Studies Observation Centre (part of the Early Childhood education program) and the Fitness Centre.
Each integrated classroom is designed in a similar fashion to maximize ease of use for faculty, facilitate unique learning outcomes and provide the latest in classroom technology, both hardware and software, all of which can be easily maintained and updated.
The installations include a mix of Epson, NEC and Canon projectors, installed using Peerless mounts and Draper screens located at the front of each classroom. Based on the application, a combination of either TOA or Tannoy audio has been integrated, as needed and helps tie together the complete audiovisual learning environment and experience.
