The Murray-Darling Basin Authority is the principal government agency in charge of managing the Murray-Darling Basin in an integrated and sustainable manner. The Authority (MDBA) is the statutory agency that manages, in conjunction with the Basin states, the Murray–Darling Basin’s water resources in the national interest. The Authority reports to the Australian Government Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities.

AMX Enova DVX All In One Multimedia Presentation System:

An AMX Enova DVX all in one presentation switcher provides complete signal routing from any source to any display device as well serving as the control centre for all the devices.

AMX DX-link wall plates provide VGA and HDMI connectivity in each of the three rooms which cable back to the AMX Enova DVX device with only a single low cost data cable. Wall plates can situated up to a 100m away from the Enova device allowing for an uncluttered and cost effective audio visual system which greatly minimises the amount of devices required to achieve the desired outcome.

Audio System:

Ceiling speakers in each of the three rooms provide sound for all AV sources
A total of 4 wireless microphones provide sound reinforcement for speakers, consisting of two hand held and two head worn microphones.

Numerous Shure Ceiling microphones along with a Nexia TC teleconferencing sound processor in the Corowa Room allows the entire room to serve as a large telephone. Users can dial a number on the wall mounted iPad to any land line or mobile phone and the person on the line will be heard through the ceiling speakers with the ceiling microphones providing audio pick up for the call.

The audio head end system consists of a multichannel amplifier and a Nexia TC teleconferencing sound processor. The Nexia TC sound processor allows for fine tuning of the audio system with Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) of microphones preventing any feedback of microphones.
