Sponsored: IT manager Lee Powell on the importance of making clever technology decisions

It’s more important than ever for schools to be making clever technology decisions which provide educators and students alike the best experience through a cost-effective solution that will last. The choice can be baffling, especially when designing the layout within a new build facility, which is the position Lee Powell, information technology manager at Aberdare Community School found himself in last year. His solution; 70 Ultra Short Throw projectors from Casio.

Aberdare Community School has always driven its students to strive, believe and achieve more so when moving to new premises it seemed only natural that the school facilities needed to do the same.

Powell, explained, “As part of the new school building, we wanted to make sure that each of the classrooms were equipped with the best education technology to deliver our leading teaching experience; which is why we selected the Casio UST projector to be installed in each of the classrooms.”

Without filters or other replacement parts, it was a fantastic solution for Aberdare as it virtually eliminated maintenance

Integrator Comcen fitted the UST projectors in the new facility during the build process. Like all of Casio’s projectors, the UST is powered by Laser and LED Hybrid technology, meaning that the unit is completely lamp-free. Without filters or other replacement parts, it was a fantastic solution for Aberdare as it virtually eliminated maintenance. The UST is also mercury free and delivers great power savings through its lifetime, making it a sustainable investment.

“One fantastic aspect of the projectors is its flexibility,” Powell noted. “The short throw distance of only 27cm to achieve an 80” diagonal image means that they can seamlessly fit into even the most uniquely shaped classrooms; they can be installed directly where the display is required. They also provide a great presentation experience to teachers. Due to the positioning of the projector, there is no glare or light shining into the presenters’ eyes and shadowing is virtually eliminated, great for dynamic teachers.”

It is simple, easy to use and the peace of mind we get from not having to worry about maintenance and replacement lamps is ideal

The projectors have been a great hit with students and staff and helped to make the transition into the new space smooth and hassle free. Casio’s 5 Year or 10,000 Hour warranty also provided the school with the peace of mind that the projectors would not be something the school would have to worry about during the move.

“We enjoy using the technology,” Powell concludes. “It is simple, easy to use and the peace of mind we get from not having to worry about maintenance and replacement lamps is ideal. I wouldn’t hesitate to continue to invest in Casio in the future.”
