SIDC match your school or business the latest technology to compliment your requirements. We aim to provide cost-effective, environmentally sustainable and socially responsible solutions.
We also provide consultative services where we can assist to develop system designs and schematics for your projects.
We take a stewardship outlook with all our AV customers. Our aim as an AV partner is to do just that… Partner with you. It is important that your AV investments are maximised to their full potential to ensure the full return on investment and just as importantly preventing good equipment going to landfill.
To complete our stewardship focus, SIDC collects school e-Waste and at no cost delivers this to Substation33 to ensure old equipment does not end up in landfill. Substation33 provides training and employment opportunities for volunteers through the recycling of electronic waste.

Coral Coast Christian School approached SIDC for solutions for 3x Learning Spaces. For the Kindy and Prep to Year 2 classrooms, accessibility and resolution were paramount to allow the youngest children to utilise the interactive surface and to give a crystal clear image for children seated on the floor directly in front. For the Year 3 to 4 Classroom, the school requested a larger image with interactivity as the children are taller and the general viewing habit is from behind a desk (need to ensure clear line of sight for the image)
For their newly renovated library space, Coombabah State School wanted a large interactive flat panel display that was capable of wirelessly displaying content via AirPlay (Apple iPads) and from Windows Laptops.
The 75″ ViewSonic IFP7550-2 was the perfect display for this, and when partnered with the North Bayou TW-50 Motorised Stand, is capable of dropping the display to sit 10mm above the trolley legs so students from Prep to Year 6 can utilise the screen to it’s potential
SIDC has been working with Carmichael College and Cornerstone Electrical to deliver a campus wide upgrade of the PA System in line with the new Administration Building and Sports Court New Builds.
We have utilised a Dante based network system using Yamaha Commercial Audio, Kramer Electronics and Audinate products to provide a quality system with flexibility to handle the future growth stages of this expanding college.
Wynnum State High School has rolled out another batch of Epson Projector Upgrades. Here in the science labs, we are using an Epson EB-685W Ultra-Short Throw Projector with a Microsoft Wireless Display adaptor. This allows teachers to stand at the work bench facing students without any cable trip hazards.
Hudson’s Cafe @ Muelle College engaged SIDC to install a digital signage / menu board solution. As a space that is used within school hours for staff, parents and students, whilst also being utilised after hours for events / catering, it was important to have a solution to provide flexibility with content display.
SIDC was approached to upgrade the audio system for Coombabah State School’s multipurpose hall, which was built during the BER funding days. The school wanted to do away with having to patch in a sound desk when ever they needed audio.
We have utilised the latest Dante digital audio technology, combined with the performance and reliability of Yamaha Pro Audio and Commercial Audio products…
Springwood Central State School has recently upgraded two rooms with the latest IFP50 Series Interactive Displays from ViewSonic. Opting for motorised height adjustable trolleys allows teachers the flexibility with positioning and accessibility, with the younger prep students able to access the interactive surface when at it’s lowest height. Raising to full height allows all kids sitting at their desks to have an unimpeded view of the display.
Noosa Christian College requested a demonstration of the ViewSonic 65″ Interactive Flat Panel for their Library Resource Centre. I took a demonstration unit to site on a fixed height trolley, and within 10 minutes of the demonstration being complete the school had taken ownership of this display.
SIDC is trusted by schools, both public and independent, across South East Queensland.
Our focus is to provide solutions that are designed to assist pedagogy. Many AV and IT companies focus on providing technology without understanding it is a teaching tool, rather making it the core of teaching. We partner with schools with a focus on saving costs by considering the total cost of ownership, energy efficiency and environmentally sustainable products.
For corporate customers, SIDC provides a range of products and services. From boardrooms, wayfinding and kiosks, to our EasySignage digital signage solution, we can assist you achieve your technological goals.
We pride ourselves on focusing on your triple bottom line: economically viable, environmentally sustainable and easy to use Audio Visual solutions. From energy efficient and no-maintenance projection and flat panel solutions from reputable vendors including ViewSonic, Casio, Panasonic, Sony and BenQ, to simple to use background audio and paging solutions by Yamaha Commercial Audio, Australian Monitor and Audinate, we have your needs covered.
As an active church-goer, I understand the importance of Audio Visual elements to encourage active participation and to ensure all church members can be included in services and events. I also understand that churches are a body of people of all backgrounds, including professions, so it is my focus that we work with churches to minimise the spending of tithes and offerings to maximise value.
One way which differentiates SIDC from the competition is we look to use trades already in the church membership where possible to assist with installation and commissioning, again minimising the church financial outlay.
