  • rutledge wins at QLD NECA excellence awards 2012

    Rutledge was awarded with the Commercial - Large Project Award for the Rio Tinto Brisbane Regional Centre at this year’s NECA QLD Excellence Awards held in Brisbane recently.

    Rutledge was awarded with the Commercial - Large Project Award for the Rio Tinto Brisbane Regional Centre at this year’s NECA QLD Excellence Awards held in Brisbane recently.

    "The NECA Excellence Awards are the ultimate recognition of outstanding contribution to the industry. The NECA Excellence Awards recognise the accomplishments of individual electrical and communications companies, small and large, for their work on various projects across the state" (NECA Excellence Awards).

    Rio Tinto required a state-of-the-art digital signage and broadcast solution that could be site selective, or display different content to different levels of their building, plus a broadcast system to facilitate video conferencing anywhere in the world.

    This comprehensive project included the supply, installation and integration of digital signage and display systems, audio visual and video conference systems in over fifty rooms, global streaming and a broadcast function for video and audio presentations.

    David Millar, Rutledge AV's QLD Regional General Manager said, "Access to cutting edge technology was a key requirement for Rio Tinto and a state of the art fully integrated workspace has been created to meet their operational and performance objectives.

    We use the very best that technology has to offer and we deliver that technology using best practices. This philosophy has underpinned our work at Rio Tinto. This award recognises Rutledge for pioneering new standards for world class audio visual systems in what was one of Australia’s largest digital signage roll outs to date."

    The Rio Tinto project will now be a finalist at the National NECA Excellence Awards that will be held later in the year.

    University (Footscray Park Campus) – Learning Commons, Exercise Science and Sports Precinct (LCESSP) Project. The project is an excellent example of technological advances and their interactive application to education and facilities provided by Victoria University.

    The project consists of 43 spaces including 12 Laboratories and associated areas for Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Anatomy, and Motor Learning as well as 12 Collaborative classrooms/workrooms, 6 meeting rooms and other commons areas.

    The highlight of the project is the laboratory spaces that provide a cutting edge research facility for Victoria University.

This facility extends Victoria University’s science research capabilities in the field of exercise science, sports and recreation. Victoria University collaborative classrooms are also an integral part of the designed system, which allows student interaction with the research in real time from a remote location.

    All spaces are linked to AMX resource management suite (RMS) for scheduling and system feedback monitoring for AV/IT Staff.

  • 2010 AVIA for Melbourne Convention Centre Development

    Our innovative design has set a new benchmark for audio visual technologies within Convention Centres throughout Australia.

    Our innovative design has set a new benchmark for audio visual technologies within Convention Centres throughout Australia.

    The Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) is Australia’s largest and most versatile combined convention and exhibition facility, being the first and only ‘6 Star Green Star’ environmentally rated convention centre in the world. As such, the primary objective for this venue is to showcase pioneering technology to suit the architectural design which makes this convention and exhibition space world class.

    Rutledge implemented all display systems on a native high definition (HD) platform, supported with production quality sound systems and intuitive control interfaces, future proofing the system’s extended life.

    The central broadcast optical router is a critical element of the successful implementation, providing the ability to transcode between digital and analogue. The mammoth size of the venue meant the ties between performance spaces and control rooms had to be fibre optic to maintain native HD video resolution, given distance limitations of copper cabling. Other system components including the EWIS system, microphone, line level audio for mixing consoles and Ethernet infrastructure also utilised optical fibre to go the distance.

    The facility wide IPTV System allows performers to view the stage remotely from within VIP rooms. Multi Window video processors within the Central Control Room are the key for centralised management and confidence monitoring. This allows up to 12 rooms to be displayed across 3 X 46” LCD screens in various layouts. Audio-visual help desk technicians are able to monitor and remotely control all 32 meeting rooms, the Grand Banquet Room and the Plenary divisions from one central location.
