Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt deployed an AMX SVSI network media solution to deliver seamless streaming across multiple campuses
QUEENSLAND, Australia—Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt installed AMX SVSI Networked Media Solution at The University of Southern Queensland (USQ) to create flexible teaching spaces leveraging the University’s standard network infrastructure.
With campuses in Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich, USQ offers courses in law, health, engineering, business, education, arts and the sciences. USQ recently deployed a series of POD-based learning and teaching techniques to facilitate interconnectivity both within and between campuses. USQ turned Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt to design an affordable and easy-to-use AV solution. Pro AV Solutions Queensland suggested the AMX SVSI networked media solution, capable of delivering high-definition audio and video with minimal latency across a variety of end-points on multiple campuses.
"We realized that we couldn’t approach this project with a traditional AV technology platform due to the scope of the network,” said Marc Braganza, Sales & Business Development Manager, Pro AV Solutions Queensland. “USQ wanted to bring content closer to students across three campuses. We needed a unique solution that could distribute massive amounts of audio and video over several devices using standard network cabling and IP technology. We chose the AMX SVSI networked media solution because of its flexible, affordable, and it distributes content over the entire network without instantaneously.”
The AMX SVSI network media solution enables USQ to create a complete digital media distribution solution. Students and staff can quickly connect from desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, and use the flexible user interface to control any linked devices.
"USQ is paving the way for the future of AV in the education sector,” said Dr Andrew Maxwell, Senior Lecturer, The University of Southern Queensland. “Our students love that they can send video feeds from anywhere they need to, which has allowed them to collaborate and work more effectively.”
"We are privileged to be associated with the prestigious University of Southern Queensland,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, VP & GM HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “It was a challenging project, and we're glad to have provided technology solutions to help make an impact on the students across campuses. We would like to thank ProAV Solutions Queensland and avt for providing a robust AV solution that enhances student and teacher interactions in unimaginable ways."
