Innavate provided high-quality audio and IPTV systems in the comprehensive refurbishment of Gosford RSL

“Our goal was to deliver a club-wide system consisting of high-quality audio and IPTV systems that are easy to use yet capable of being scalable. We were brought in to assist North Construction & Building in taking the original design from 70% completion to a fully functioning system,” said Director, Anthony Finlay.

The club needed an efficient way to select TV channels or signage for specific displays at any given time. They also desired a prominent feature screen in the Sports Bar and a robust audio system in the Terrace area for events, including DJ performances.

A slight redesign was needed to accommodate the LED wall in the Sports Bar, as the overall width of the wall increased. However, the most significant hurdle was the programming.

“A venue of this size, with numerous displays, audio zones, and function rooms, required extensive detail and coordination between our design and programming teams,” said Anthony. “It took months of development and custom coding to create a seamless user experience.”

Several key products were integral to the project’s success:

  • QSC Platform: Used for both audio and control, its flexibility and iPad compatibility made it ideal. Innavate developed a 3D rendered user interface for easy TV content selection and control.
  • Exterity IPTV Platform: Chosen for intuitive TV to signage selection, it provided a user-friendly backend that the RSL staff quickly adapted to.
  • Samsung Displays: Used throughout the venue for signage and IPTV displays, known for their reliability.
  • Unilumin LED Display: Selected for the Sports Bar, featuring a 1.8mm pixel pitch and measuring 5m by 3m, it offered excellent quality within budget.

“Having the Club CEO and COO get their hands on the iPads and really turn up the volume in the Terrace and Sports Bar was the icing on the cake,” said Anthony.

The renovation of Gosford RSL proved to be a particularly intricate and rewarding endeavor for Broad Windows and Façades Sydney Pty Ltd.
