Opening in December, the International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) promises to
deliver a new standard in the industry in terms of technology explains director of audio-visual
services, Brian Nash.
Created from the ground up, it is a purpose-designed digital venue which not only supports
the needs of today, but has the capability to flex and adapt for decades to come.
A critical component underpinning ICC Sydney’s flexibility is the 10Gbps optical fibre
backbone upon which it has been built. This provides the power and freedom for the team to
truly lift the bar in terms of industry standards.
“Unlike other venues, we have been able to hard wire a high calibre, functional IT network
hardwired into every room, allowing for multiple live interactive systems, video streaming, huge
file transfers and much more,” he explains.
“The technological foundation of ICC Sydney also ensures the venue is consistently
connected with outstanding Wi-Fi capability across the integrated precinct. Indeed, there are
955 access points which ensure there is high bandwidth, high density and robust wireless
connectivity across the venue.”
In an unprecedented move, the precinct has also combined its ICT and AV departments to
deliver a frictionless digital experience. All formal meeting spaces are integrated with the AV
system, and can be preconfigured with optimal environmental ambiance including lighting
“W ithin the Pyrmont Theatre and the Darling Harbour Theatre, every syllable that leaves the
stage will be heard with perfect clarity thanks to a cutting edge sound system and custom-
designed acoustic panels,” Nash explains.
“This is the result of 3D modelling during the building’s planning phase, with the architectural
finishing specified around the AV requirements of the area.” m
