Sheridan College

Providing Higher Level Learning Environments with Integrated AV and IT Solutions

Sheridan College administration was looking for a way to upgrade conventional classrooms into state-of-the-art integrated learning spaces using AV and IT Solutions. To accomplish this, an experienced technology solutions provider was needed to provide interactive video technology in 17 classrooms throughout the new wing of their Brampton Campus.

As one of Canada’s top polytechnic institutes, Sheridan College is a leader in providing skills-based educational programming that integrates theory with application. Their dedication to providing students with exceptional learning methods prepares the students for careers in visual and performing arts, business, community services and technical fields.

Diversified was contracted to integrate ground-breaking audio visual (AV) and IT solutions in the new wing of the campus. Each room was installed with AV equipment featuring multiple projectors to give both teachers and students the opportunity to share digital and visual information in different ways.

Diversified partnered with Just Add Power to install the new AV equipment. Complete audio and video solutions were installed in the classrooms to provide students with a unique and interactive way of learning. A total of 16 flex classrooms featured two, four, or six NEC commercial grade projectors; the last room was designated the college “Co-Lab” and featured six projectors.

All classrooms feature Dell computers, AverMedia 350+ Doc cameras and advanced audio components, all controlled by a central control panel to allow teachers to fully interact with the students through digital displays. To facilitate mobility, teachers can use the wireless gooseneck microphones also connected to the AV setup.

Sheridan was so pleased with the installation that they are looking to implement this design in 150 more classrooms throughout their Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville campuses.
