We are delighted to announce that we have won two national awards for our work within the education sector.
We were presented with both the Star Product Award and Best Project Award at the Install Awards 2014 for our ground breaking AV installation at Phoenix Academy, Telford.
The Phoenix Academy project saw us revolutionise classroom AV with the first install of the Clever Tabtouch, a system we developed in partnership with Sahara Presentation Systems and Telford and Wrekin Council.
Clever Tabtouch sees teachers using tablet devices to connect wirelessly and seamlessly to state of the art wall-mounted screens, giving them freedom to roam around the classroom and teach from various locations, thus increasing engagement and interaction with students.
We were also shortlisted in a further three categories for our teamwork and our projects in the commercial sector.
CDEC’s managing director, Toni Barnett, said: “We are incredibly pleased to have been recognised in this way. To be presented with two trophies at the Install Awards, when up against fierce competition, highlights us as leaders in our field. Our collaborative approach with Telford and Wrekin and Sahara has resulted in a truly fantastic and revolutionary product that we are already in the process of rolling out at around 100 other schools across the UK. Winning these awards gives a seal of approval to our product that we believe is the future for educational AV. We thank all involved in the project, including our dedicated staff, our exceptional partners at Sahara and Telford and Wrekin Council, and of course Phoenix Academy.”
The Install Awards 2014 ceremony took place at The Hilton, Wembley on 12 June to recognise excellence within the AV installation field and saw fierce competition from projects across Europe.
Organised by Installation Magazine, the awards recognised achievement and excellence across projects of different sizes, scopes and budgets. The night reflected that successful installations are a result of a careful combination project design, product selection and teamwork.
