James Cook University - Case Study

Project Background

The dental school at James Cook University (JCU) was established in 2008 in response to the challenges presented by the oral health needs of Northern Australia. It is one of only three dental schools in Australia located outside a capital city.

In 2011, new, purpose built facilities were being designed and built with the aid of Federal Government funding. JCU engaged Videopro to assist in the supply of audio visual products to further aid the educational experience.


The concept was to provide improved practical experiences to large numbers of students through the use of video, audio, and content streaming to almost anywhere in the building. The project, designed by audio visual consultants Design Stage, allowed the ability to capture real time procedures and feed the video content all over campus, if required.

The project was complex and involved working together with many different people to create the final vision. Videopro assisted in the supply of numerous high end commercial screens, touch screen control and programming, and the design of housing for all of this digital hardware which needed to suit a number of wet areas (as some spaces would require intensive cleaning with chemicals and high pressure water).

Selecting the best product to suit the project was paramount. In this case, the system required the use of Indigo Vision to deliver streaming content and the ability to record real life and mock dental procedures with ease.

After 3 months of installation and nearly 5 weeks of programming, the project completed on time, to impeccable standards and produced one of Queensland’s best dental schooling facilities available, and developed strong relationships between all parties involved, including JCU, the builders, and Videopro.

Videopro’s contribution as part of the team involved with the Dental School project was extremely valuable. This was a challenging project that required a lot of interworking between audio visual systems, the JCU network and specialist dental equipment and software. Without Videopro’s technical expertise, flexibility and willingness to work as part of a larger team we could not have achieved the end results that we did.
