Private College, Victoria

Oct 19, 2023 | Education, Projects

A Melbourne college contacted Jacques with the requirement of a PA system upgrade back in 2015. The college had three separate schools, consisting primary, secondary and senior schools (prep up to grade 12) all on one campus. This college sums up the benefits of installing a scalable Jacques school system, starting out with a small school system and expanding into a comprehensive school system with full IP speakers, an emergency evacuation system, graphical user interface with custom maps. The college required a flexible system with the ability to connect to other buildings on the campus (in preparation for an expansion). The initial requirement was 3 PA zones, for which Jacques provided 3 UAI-3B1 (PA zone controller) modules connected to 3 separate groups of speakers. Jacques Announcement Scheduler (JAS) made it easy to manage PA announcements and bell schedules across the school site. Later in 2018, Jacques successfully installed 25 IP smart ceiling speakers (SCS-150+) as part of the school expansion. Installing IP speakers provided the school administration with more control over communication to each classroom, tamper detection and device removal notifications. Moreover, with the built-in microphone featured in these speakers, classroom noise level monitoring was achieved. The college expansion included specialist facilities such as a music centre, performing arts auditorium, a chapel, as well as computer laboratories, technology facilities, wetlands, and a mini farm – all of which were equipped with audio coverage using the Jacques system. In 2020, a further 40 IP ceiling speakers were installed along with a PC master station (PCC-650WTS) which allowed the school to upload custom maps of the schools with complete control over PA and endpoints. An emergency evacuation panel was also installed for emergency alarm management.
