Three extra-large dnp Supernova optical displays were chosen to deliver exceptional teaching and learning experiences at Southampton University’s new Centenary Building. This state-of-the-art resource will be in use for decades to come and help to ensure the University of Southampton maintains its position as one of the top 100 universities globally
Larger teaching spaces can lack immediacy and impact and, as such, may affect learning outcomes adversely. The larger the space, the harder it is to deliver clearly readable content to students throughout the entire area. Students need to be able to see and engage with subject matter from every position in the room.
Leading consultant, Cundall, had specified dnp Supernova optical projection screen technology on previous projects. The 250 seat main lecture theatre and 80 seat Harvard lecture theatre both required high-contrast large screen displays.
Global AV system integrator proAV, having won this prestigious bid, was determined to deliver outstanding results for this contract and the Visual Displays team was equally determined to play their support role to its fullest extent.
Quality displays at competitive prices
The dnp Supernova Infinity ambient light rejecting projection screen makes it possible to install standards- conforming displays at a fraction of the cost of competing technologies, such as direct view LED. As ‘Infinity’ implies, these screens can be made in literally any size, to the exact required mm.
In the two largest teaching spaces, three Supernova Infinity Screens were fitted, two in the main lecture theatre to facilitate twin-screen presentations. Not only do these displays deliver content to every viewing position in each teaching space, but they all also exceed the PISCR image contrast standard with the lighting at teaching levels.
Using the 3LCD colour technology with the specified Epson EB-L1500UH projectors, the ISF-certified dnp Supernova screen material is capable of delivering fully colour-calibrated content.
