ADVANCED INSTALLS VISUAL COLLABORATION SOLUTIONS WITHIN EXCLUSIVE TORONTO PRIVATE SCHOOL, ST. CLEMENT’S, TO PROMOTE LEARNING AND INTERACTION
ABOUT ST. CLEMENT’S SCHOOL
Founded in 1901 by Reverend Canon Powell, St. Clements School (SCS) is an Anglican independent all-girls school located in Toronto, Ontario whose students are often referred to as `Clementines`. The school recently completed a new addition, doubling the space for the students. The school is a member of the Round Square affiliation of schools and educates students in Grades 1 through 12.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
SCS called upon the experts at Advanced to design and install integrated, interactive display technology and visual collaboration solutions within the school’s 34 classrooms. Equipped with a SMART Board, ceiling-mounted projector, amplified audio system and an equipment rack for DVD and VCR, each of the 34 rooms can effectively facilitate the different learning habits and patterns of the school`s unique student population.
The gymnasium is equipped with an impressive 300” diagonal, motorized screen, large enough that it is often used for large assemblies and an entire audience can clearly see it.
Advanced was also responsible for a major portion of the AV installation in the school`s state-of-the-art performance theatre. Within this space, the orchestra is located at a lower level, below the stage. For complete synchronization between actors and orchestra, a camera, installed at the back of the stage connects to a TV where the orchestra sits. Speakers placed on the stage enable actors to hear the orchestra with absolute clarity and brightness. The theatre also has a 240” motorized, diagonal screen and a powerful NEC projector with long-throw lens that brilliantly and accurately reproduces any multimedia video required on stage, both for plays and presentations.
Finally, a staff meeting room was equipped with a 46” LCD flat-panel monitor with an interactive SMART overlay that transforms the TV into a large-format, interactive touchscreen display, allowing teachers to share lesson plans and collaborate on ideas.
