University of Southern Queensland, Australia

The Opportunity

With campuses in Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich, the University of Southern Queensland 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 to Pro AV Solutions Queensland and avt to design an affordable and easy-to-use AV solution.

The 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. 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.

The Impact

“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 it is flexible, affordable, and it distributes content over the entire network, instantaneously.”

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.”
