From screen and projector mounting systems to teaching aid trolleys to AV collaboration furniture – UNICOL has the answer.

In 1963 UNICOL made the first AV Trolley for UK schools and continues the tradition with AV furniture, trolleys and lifters for screens up to 98” including Microsoft Hub, Smart-board and CleverTouch; all VC compatible and conforming to BS8590.

Education is experiencing a period of tremendous change with EdTech solutions being the focus of the future. Adaptive learning, predictive modelling, VR, social media and unparalleled access to global data all have a part to play.

As an AV mount manufacturer for more than 50 years, Unicol has been adding to its portfolio to support institutions with their evolving needs. These include lecterns, collaboration furniture, teaching aid trolleys and desks – all able to be customised with branding in school or college colours.

Sales of traditional products for screens and projectors continue, but the learning environment is changing. A recent study revealed that the use of remote learning technologies in teaching is expected to rise significantly, and real-time video collaboration and mobile devices will be the primary way students engage with content by 2025.

AV/IT service teams are not only called upon to respond to teachers’ requests for new technology and services but also to come up with intuitive ideas to satisfy increasingly tech-savvy students. To work effectively, students need to have available the technology they use in their daily lives so that they can relate to it during class.

Unicol works closely with integrators and installers to satisfy AV/IT department ‘custom build’ complete solutions. It provides the AV sector with support to carry out implementations effectively while giving guidance on quality, functionality and cost, prior to supplying the solution required.
