ABOUT THE YORK SCHOOL

THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
The school turned to the audiovisual experts at Advanced when they realized the need to incorporate visual collaboration technology into their classrooms. Advanced design and installed an AV solution that equipped each classroom SMART interactive whiteboard, a high-power, high-resolution NEC projector and an amplified stereo audio system. A total of 37 electronic classrooms were installed, including the art and music rooms, science labs, 2 libraries, a boardroom, a drama theatre and the gymnasium. Today, each learning environment within the school is well equipped to provide students with an interactive and immersive learning atmosphere to promote greater participation and enhanced learning.
In addition to the classroom collaboration solutions, Advanced also installed a large portable rear-projection screen and ultra-high powered projector with interchangeable lens within the school gymnasium to bring special events to life and provide a visual teaching tool for presentations and school meetings. Projection and video screens were also installed in the libraries and drama room, to enable ongoing collaboration and foster teamwork.
To promote enhanced communication between the school, faculty and students, 2 37″ digital displays were installed at the front and rear entrances to the school to welcome visitors, display relevant, current school information and alerts and display pictures of recent school activities. The entire AV system helps the school achieve its goal of supporting collaborative learning outcomes and bringing students and teachers closer together.
