The Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC), part of The Star Entertainment Group continues to ensure event organisers receive seamless end-to-end experiences with the cornerstone of modern conferencing proudly on display.
It’s more than just light and sound, as GCCEC’s in-house Audio Visual specialists continue to orchestrate some of the most technically complex events in Australia. Investing in the latest innovative technology, four Christie Digital Projectors have been added to the Centres’ arsenal of state-of-the-art equipment.
GCCEC’s newly acquired digital projectors are being utilised for large format screens and pixel mapping throughout the venue. The video display technique is extremely versatile in crafting mind-blowing visual displays including the largest ever created by the team spanning 50 metres wide and over 8 metres high, projecting over 8 million pixels.
The projection technique uses specialised software to warp and blend projected images in 2D or 3D onto surfaces such as buildings, interior spaces and natural landscapes acting as unorthodox screens.
When combined with bespoke content, GCCEC’s AV specialists are able to set dynamic backdrops and visual masterpieces for events, conferences and meetings.
Vision is the fastest moving element of audio visual technology according to GCCEC Audio Visual manager Ben Morris, making it a compelling drawcard for event organisers seeking the “wow-factor”.
“Projection mapping transcends ordinary video projection because we can alter the perception of reality against any surface or space and create focal points for conference proceedings or set 3D scenes for sophisticated gala events.
“Clients expect flawless imagery, and this equipment ensures GCCEC is well placed to stay at the forefront of available technology,” Morris added.
The latest investment in infrastructure and technology is a further testament to GCCEC’s ongoing commitment to remain one of Australia’s leading conference and event destinations.
