Christie M and Christie J Series Projectors Help to Bring Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre to life
Since opening its doors for business in 2013, it’s fair to say the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC) in Brisbane has made quite a splash “down under” in a very short time on the events hosting and production scene. From high-profile sports competitions to large corporate conferences, product launches, gala dinners and everything in between, the Centre has hosted a variety and volume of events more common with an established venue than a newer one.
How has the Royal ICC done it? The secret to the venue’s success – at least a large part of it – really isn’t a secret at all. Beginning with the first phases of construction in April 2011, an early and earnest commitment to delivering the latest technological advances has been the hallmark of the Centre.
That commitment took further shape when Australia’s Microhire was chosen to manage the vast audio-visual needs for the facility. The company brought to bear more than 25 years of high-level experience in the field of corporate audio-visual management as well as a technological vision aligned with the Centre’s. Beyond their dedicated management manpower onsite, Microhire committed to a $3 million investment to make the desired and complete audio-visual suite a reality.
According to Microhire Queensland General Manager Russell Bennett and lead for the audio-visual management team at the Royal ICC, the decision to use Christie projectors was an early one – in fact, it was the first one.
“The Christie Roadsters were the first part of our capital equipment purchase and certainly had our technical staff excited,” said Bennett.
