We are the go-to expert for national framework AV suppliers and other leading AV integrators whose Higher Education, Further Education or school clients want to offer their students world-class display solutions and improve efficiency, productivity and learning outcomes.
Optimal performance and value
With a deep understanding and many years’ experience of the requirements and challenges in the education sector, we can add great value to a project regardless of size and complexity, from refurbishment and upgrade programmes to full new-builds.
In education, now more than ever, it is vital to offer solutions that achieve maximum value, without compromising on performance.
We offer expertise and highly-skilled support at every stage of a project - from technical site survey and 3D CAD design to supply and installation - to get it right the first time and give your education clients an appropriate and impressive solution that is reliable, futureproof and cost-effective.
Let us do the work
Simply give us a brief for a display of any size and complexity and we will create an outstanding, appropriate and best-value solution.
We use globally recognised AV standards to determine the minimum size and image quality a display needs to be, eliminating guesswork and costly post-installation snagging.
We provide integrator partners with a full tender-support service with competitive pricing and technical excellence, backed up by verifiable metrics.
Solutions and Technology
Displays for education normally need to be 100” and above, to comply with the screen size requirements set out in the DISCAS image size standard.
What size should my display be? Use our quick-reference 3-Step Guide to Display Success to get started.
We supply large-scale, seamless HD and 4K/UHD* displays for collaboration, presentation and signage from 100” up to any size.
*NB - UHD is the version of 4K that's used in proAV because it's exactly 4 x HD (imagine a 2 x 2 array of HD images). 4k is a few pixels wider and is the modern cinema resolution.
Projection is almost always the optimal solution as it offers the necessary size and performance at a fraction of the cost per square metre of the alternative displays (which, over 100”, are videowalls and direct view LED displays).

Projection is also the environmentally sustainable option, from materials and manufacture environmental impact, to low energy use throughout lifetime, to end-of-life recycling. See, for example, our market-leading partner Epson’s leadership here.
Laser projection, with 20,000 hours of high performance maintenance-free operation, means projected displays can be installed and managed just like large format displays, but without some of their critical limitations. For students to be able to see and engage with detailed information they need a minimum image contrast of at least 15:1, according to the globally adopted ANSI/AVIXA PISCR and ISCR standards. In properly-lit teaching environments, there is no alternative to using a specialist ambient light rejecting (ALR) projection screen.
We run regular webinars, open to all, on subjects including:
- The 8 Essentials in Specifying Screens and Displays
- Creating Excellent Teaching Spaces - Putting the Theory into Practice for HE / FE Environments
- Understanding standards - practical guidance and useful tools for AV Integrators
