We believe educators make a long-lasting impact upon their students and the communities around them by using the tools at their disposal to create a genuine connection. Across classrooms and lecture theatres, common areas and training studios, we are improving student engagement and productivity, encouraging faster learning and facilitating greater collaboration among groups.
Advances in information technology have helped eliminate time and space constraints, opening up new possibilities for education. Our audio visual and information technologies can transform your spaces into more interactive, creative places to learn
Working hand-in-hand with schools and universities around the world we provide a single point of contact to develop bespoke solutions tailored to your institution.
With brighter, better-looking pictures, smart features and affordable running costs, our HD and 4K BRAVIA displays keep students informed and are user-friendly and easy to install. Featured as standard, HTML5 compatibility and IP-networked capabilities ensure your IT team can manage all assets from a central location. Optional TDM Digital Signage software, meanwhile, allows you to easily create your own content and send it to one or more displays anytime and from any device, whilst touch overlays enable you to turn your display into an interactive touchscreen.
Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding venues, Sony education projectors offer the highest quality images combined with energy efficiency and reliability.
For those large areas where all-day projection is a requirement, 3LCD laser projectors offer quick power-on and constant brightness. While up to 20,000 hours virtually maintenance free operation allows you to spend 100% of your time on teaching, rather than tackling technology.
Share your vision and inspire your audience with Sony Vision Presenter, a presentation system which puts you in control, helping educators make greater use of active learning methods. Combining traditional teaching or multi-way group discussion and presentations, Vision Presenter allows you to show and control a wide range of content, including videos, images, web pages and files, simultaneously. Lecturers or students can run the system intuitively, using a tablet device.
Ensure the safety of students, staff and visitors with our cutting-edge video security systems.
Optimise costs by monitoring people flow and queue sizes with retail analytics.
Monitor secure areas and ensure only authorised personnel have access.
Keeping students and staff safe is paramount to any educational environment, and the larger the premises, the harder this task can be. With a range of cameras available and tools such as ViewDR and Integrated IR, we offer solutions to monitor any environment, day or night. And with our new 4K SNC-XM772R, fewer cameras are needed to cover larger open spaces, such as playing fields and car parks, providing a cost effective solution.

To truly make a great first impression Norwegian university NTNU, based in Trondheim, decided to create an exhibition space in the reception area, showcasing its diverse work and attracting the interest of new students and other guests.
Rather than a static exhibition area, NTNU worked with Sony to create an interactive information wall. Using a VPL-FHZ700L 3LCD laser light source projector in combination with Microsoft’s Kinect system, NTNU’s ‘wall’ presents a slideshow of pictures from events, student activities, student projects and other relevant information. Since the projector needs to run for 10 hours a day during the week, the 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation offered by the VPL-FHZ700L reassured the university it’d be wowing students for years to come.
The University of Helsinki’s Centre for Properties and Facilities had some clear objectives when planning to replace its older projectors in lecture theatres, halls and other areas: high reliability, low maintenance and demonstrably ‘green’ credentials were all essential. The university chose Sony’s VPL-FHZ55 and VPL-FHZ700L 3LCD laser light source projectors thanks to their image quality, low running costs and range of energy-saving features, installing 17 projectors in total across the campus.
Harton Technology College in South Shields in the north-east of England has been delivering excellence in education since 1936. When the school decided to improve its security solutions, it installed two of our SNC-VM772R 4K video security cameras to its existing network, becoming the first educational institution in the United Kingdom with a Sony 4K surveillance solution. With a busy main gate carrying students, staff, parents and visitors through it every day, the solution needed to deliver all the benefits of 4K technology, particularly high image resolution, but without adding to the strain on the video network. The transition to 4K in key areas has created a streamlined security solution at the school, with swift, easy identification, thanks to the 1.0 type 20MP Exmor R™ sensors used in our 4K video security cameras.
