UWA Trading Room Learning Space.


22 August 2018

The University of Western Australia’s Trading Room is a purpose-built teaching environment that takes students from out-of-date text books into real-time data. The room can seat 45 students. Students can work with live real-time Bloomberg terminals and view live Foxtel feeds. All seated positions have sight lines to directive content from the instructor.

This modern facility gives students access to over 400 global markets and more than four million gigabytes of historical market data.

3D Audio Visual took care of the AV design. Features include:

  • Content delivered via an IP fibre streaming network which is integrated as part of the client network.
  • Low latency SVSI encoders deliver media streams to most of the displays which include live stock data, news feeds and simulation content. 15 streams in total.
  • 11 visual live stock trading feeds on vertically operational lifts (Turrets) central to the participating students’ terminals.
  • The desks were prototyped 10 times to ensure an optimal configuration for comfortable study space for each student.
