The dual lamp feature has given us a vibrant bright image with the added knowledge that should a lamp fail the redundancy allows us to continue to use the main hall.

Results: State of the art projection facilities in both the performance and classroom spaces, befitting a school specialising in the Performing Arts.

The Challenge

New state of the art projection facilities

Background
RM Education was commissioned by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to provide an extensive range of ICT facilities for two new build projects. Two schools were involved, one being Dagenham Park Church of England School.

Planning and Installation
One of the problems encountered during the installation, was they found keystone correction wasn’t being applied after power on/off on the ProScene EH7500 projector. Optoma technical staff attended on-site and performed a firmware upgrade that rectified the problem.

Although the project was long and complex, the EH7500 projector install proceeded smoothly and the installation took less than one day to complete.

The Solution

Why an Optoma Solution?
The ProScene EH7500 with an ST1 lens was installed within the main school hall and 58 Optoma EW766 projectors were installed in the classroom spaces. DLP projection had been specified to reduce maintenance costs for filter cleaning during operation. RM Education approached Optoma to provide the EH7500 and EW766 as they offered the best performance versus price comparison on the market and exceeded expectations in terms of support for high definition, high brightness and installation flexibility.

“Initially, the installation was designed to drop the projector from the truss to clear light fittings. However, due to the raked seating, this meant the projector was in the audience line of sight when they were seated at the back. As a result, the projector mount was shortened. EH7500 provided the flexibility with lens shifting and keystone correction to allow these changes to be made quickly and easily.” – Tony Matthews, Lead Engineer for RM Education.

The Results

Glowing feedback for the EH7500

Following the installation, Dagenham Park School now has state of the art projection facilities in the main hall and classroom spaces, befitting a school specialising in the Performing Arts. The EH7500 provided installation flexibility with lens shift and keystone correction to allow any changes to be made quickly and easily.
