About Flinders University
Flinders University was established in 1966, with a vision to be internationally recognised as a world leader in research, an innovator in contemporary education, and the source of Australia’s most enterprising graduates. With core values of integrity, courage, innovation and excellence, and an underlying ethos of being student centred, Flinders University has a bold mission of changing lives and changing the world. fter the famed navigator Matthew Flinders, who in an 1804 letter explained why he was embarking on his adventurous life of discovery: "I HAVE TOO MUCH AMBITION TO REST IN THE UNNOTICED MIDDLE ORDER OF MANKIND. SINCE NEITHER BIRTH NOR FORTUNE HAVE FAVOURED ME, MY ACTIONS SHALL SPEAK TO THE WORLD."
Flinders University engaged LaunchPADS partner Pro AV Solutions for the design and fit out of their new Trading room in the Law and Commerce building. The purpose of this space was to provide students with a simulated financial trading centre to develop real-world skills.
The cutting-edge market simulation was designed and developed to enable students to access time-series data on security prices and exchange rates so they are able to simulate and execute trades in real time.
Pro AV Solutions contacted LaunchPADS to assist in getting a ASX 200 stock ticker feed onto an 18M long custom LED screen. This feed would also need to highlight stocks that were postive and negative from the feed.
LaunchPADS deployed PADS4 on a single PC to cover the entire 18m span for the LED Screen. Using a custom resolution PADS4 was able to create a canvas that was in native resolution for the custom LED. PADS4 was then able to pull the ASX200 data from its source, and convert it into a ticker format. Rules were aplied to the data to change the colour of each element depending if it was higher or lower.
