University of South Australia

Pridham Hall Project.


Each year over 9,000 students graduate from the University of South Australia, and over 20 UniSA Sporting teams compete in local competitions. Pridham Hall will house both of these and more, offering a dynamic space for graduation ceremonies and sport as well as corporate functions and events.

The project team’s primary goal was to provide an Audio Visual system with sufficient flexibility to match the many uses of the venue itself. It was critical that content could be routed within the venue as required to suit each usage mode of the hall, as well as other supporting spaces within the building.

The Pridham Hall building includes:

  • A large multi-purpose hall that will be transformed for graduations, functions and sporting events featuring an8x4.5m LED Screen as well as 2×275” Projection Screens
  • Three flexible function rooms that can be joined to house large corporate events and dinners, or used as overflow for the Hall
  • A fully-equipped Fitness Centre for instructor-led classes or recreational use
  • A 25m five-lane, heated swimming pool
  • Two open-plan lobbies that can be used as standalone venues, or joined to the Hall for large events


Given the highly flexible nature of this building, it was clear from the early stages that an IP-based Audio Visual solution would be ideal. As this project had been a long time in the making, it had initially been conceived as a DXLINK based system, with DGX and DVX units providing the matrix switching across the building. The release of the NMX platform came at the perfect time, and the system design was re-engineered to incorporate the benefits of theNMX’s video-over-IP capabilities.

The NMX platform allows equipment to be relocated without any patching or manual routing at the head-end, which allowed us to provide end users with the ease-of-use that they are familiar with, whilst providing them more flexibility that was previously possible with other solutions.

The AMX control platform was employed for this project as it partners seamlessly with the NMX platform. This allowed us to easily build custom user interfaces that provided complete flexibility whilst remaining simple to use.
