NEC agrees 10-year display network link with Venues NSW

NEC agrees 10-year display network link with Venues NSW
August 27, 2021

NEC Australia has announced that it has secured a 10-year partnership with Venues NSW, which includes the deployment of 1,500 display screens in and around the currently under construction Sydney Football Stadium.

The technology deployment is scheduled to commence in December, and, when complete, the display network will offer live action updates and public safety messaging.

Additionally, NEC will also implement biometric technology for express check-in and entry with facial recognition systems, personal registration, to assist wayfinding and provide enhanced safety and security.

Scheduled to be opened in time for the 2022 NRL Finals Series, Venues NSW has advised that NEC’s deployment will make the fan experience at the 42,500 capacity venue “a whole new ball game”.

Mitsuhiro Murooka, President and Chief Executive of NEC A/NZ, advised that its solutions at the Sydney Football Stadium will be a showcase of its technology, commenting “by utilising NEC Australia’s state-of-the-art digital and customer experience technology, we will ensure everyone who visits the new Sydney Football Stadium will have an experience that is second to none.

“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Venues NSW for this opportunity, we look forward to working together on this project and any future opportunities that may arise across the network.”

The deal also extends NEC’s services to upgrading screens across the rest of Venues NSW’s network, which includes Stadium Australia, Bankwest Stadium, McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle Entertainment Centre and Showground, Sydney Cricket Ground and WIN Sports Stadium and Entertainment Centres.

This is the latest deal for NEC involving screens, with it previously winning a deal with West HQ to provide digital display technology for the Sydney Coliseum Theatre, which was announced in August 2019 prior to its opening in December that year.
