Hastings Deering Institute of Technology Case Study

Hastings Deering Institute of Technology

Project Background

The Hastings Deering Group of companies sell, service and support the complete range of Caterpillar heavy equipment used in the mining and construction industries. Hastings Deering operates dealerships in Queensland, the Northern Territory, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia (Caltrac). With such an extensive network and over 3000 staff, support from the company is always on hand to provide the right solution to a customer’s needs.

The Hastings Deering Institute of Technology provides nationally recognised training and assessment services across a range of industry specific areas. In order to ensure their facilities provide the most advanced training experience available, it was decided to upgrade the training rooms at their Brisbane campus. The team at Videopro were engaged to bring their training into the 21st century through the use of current interactive educational technologies.


VIDEOPRO introduced Hastings Deering to the Hitachi Interactive Whiteboards which were integrated into all of their training rooms packaged with the Hitachi Ultra Short Throw data projectors. This complete upgrade allowed for a seamless transition for all staff at the facility.

Each room contains varying levels of AMX controls together with document cameras, audio reinforcement, multiple computer inputs and television to both compliment and assist in the use of the interactive solutions and current training methods.

Hastings Deering also have two rooms that can be joined or separated by a folding wall – each individual room contains an interactive whiteboard and ultra short throw projector installation. When the dividing wall is removed, the larger teaching space is aided by the multiple visual mechanisms for maximum viewing from all areas of the room. The dual rooms each have AMX touch screen control for staff to control the different elements of technology at one central location.

Along with producing an advanced training facility, another essential requirement was to integrate the interactive whiteboards into the training whilst maintaining Hasting Deering’s high professional standards. With this in mind, the Hitachi solution was chosen as it would best utilise the more corporate applications of interactive whiteboards.

Upon completion of the training room installations, VIDEOPRO conducted professional training for the staff to learn how to best utilise their new interactive whiteboards and technology.

The finished product is a corporate training environment to be proud of. The fully integrated and interactive solution packaged with the professional training VIDEOPRO provided has enabled staff to immediately begin using the technology confidently and successfully in both their training sessions and in internal meetings.
