WEST THAMES COLLEGE, MIDDLESEX

The Customer
  • Provider of 16+ years education
  • Offers a wide range of specialist vocational and professional courses
  • Is equipped with excellent learning resources and modern facilities
  • Has close links with employers in a variety of sectors
The Challenge
  • The college was using interactive whiteboards and projectors that were unreliable, hard to use and expensive to run
  • Existing projectors were sometimes left on for months at a time, running up huge energy bills
  • The college wanted new whiteboards and projectors that would offer higher reliability and better quality images
  • It needed to be able to manage the equipment centrally, so that it could troubleshoot problems quickly and switch off equipment when not in use
The Solution
  • Installed 30 Epson EB-1400Wi series projectors, which combine the roles of projectors, interactive whiteboards and paper flipcharts in a single system
  • The capital outlay is 25% less than for separate whiteboards and projectors
  • There is no need for a specialist interactive board – the projector makes any surface interactive
  • Every projector can be monitored and controlled remotely and turned off automatically at night, substantially cutting energy costs
  • Over the next five years, the college will install the Epson projectors in its remaining 130 classrooms
