ABOUT THE INSTALL
As one of the region’s premier sports, social and community clubs for a number of years, Rockhampton Leagues Club was established in 1971 and from humble beginnings has gone on to become arguably the leading club in Queensland.With a well-earned reputation as a club that has “something for everyone”, its initial main purpose was foster and support Rugby Leagues in the area and improve the facilities of the clubhouse for its members.
A recent upgrade of the Club’s AV and IT facilities was all the more important in terms of providing the level of service the venue had itself become renowned for. In addition to the large central bistro and lounge bar areas overlooking the main sports field, the club includes a foyer, restaurant, coffee shop and gaming room – which all feature AV distribution to screens located throughout each area. AV distribution was also required to three function rooms supporting a capacity of over 500 dinner guests, four conference rooms for further corporate, training and private hire applications and multiple offices throughout the venue.
The requirements of the AV upgrade were very much dictated by the venue and how it is used, both presently and in the future. After consideration of suitable technologies available, a WyreStorm NetworkHD 200 Series AV over IP solution was chosen. The system was required to support a variety of devices, including Foxtel set-top boxes, Blu-ray, CCTV, audio processing, wireless microphones and amplification.
