Advanced audio technology transforms the student experience at Preston College

The safety of learners, staff, and visitors is a key priority for Preston College, so they enlisted Audiebant to revolutionise the way they communicate with thousands of people on campus each day.

Audiebant’s innovative audio communication system allows Preston College to communicate a wide range of messages with campus visitors, from key updates to reminders, such as ‘wear your ID badge at all times’, and security messages, ensuring the safety of everyone on campus.

A total of 216 speakers have been installed within 14 zones across the campus, and as well as ensuring safety, the speakers can also play a bespoke playlist of music which creates a vibrant and welcoming environment for everyone. They can be used to enhance on-campus events too.

The integrated Audiebant system also allows the College to play and schedule different announcements within specific areas or campus-wide, and they have the ability to mix pre-recorded and live messages. If an emergency arises, an override facility can be accessed from any mobile device so updates can be broadcasted immediately.

Audiebant’s Commercial Director, Josh Dean, said:

“We’re delighted to have worked with Preston College on this exciting project which will not only enhance the campus experience for learners, staff, and visitors, it’ll ensure their safety too. As well as playing a key role in the College’s communication strategy, the easy-to-use audio system is completely adaptable to their requirements, so they can tailor their messages to different audiences within different areas of the campus.

“We really pleased with the feedback we’ve received from learners and staff, and look forward to working with Preston College again in the future.”

Phil Maudsley, Assistant Head of Department (ICT Services) at Preston College, said:

“We are thrilled with the Audiebant system, from installation to broadcast. Feedback from our learners and staff has been positive with many indicating that the college feels more vibrant and welcoming.

“What’s more, this integrated system enables us to quickly and efficiently communicate any safety-related messages in the event of a safety breach, which is a key priority for us in the health and safety of our learners.”

Audiebant’s intelligent audio communication system is completely unique as it uses Signal Detection Theory which dictates that messages must be different from a background to be noticed.
