Tennis Australia is an organisation that hopes to promote and advance tennis throughout the country. They are responsible for conducting various domestic and international tournaments, most notably the Australian Open. This year marked DIB’s 20th year of working alongside Tennis Australia, taking pride in being the AV provider for such a significant Australian sporting event.
DIB Australia has provided excellent AV design and AV services to meet the requirements for this major sporting event. This extends from making sure all AV upgrades are completed in a timely and professional manner, to ensuring all AV services are operating correctly during the tournament. More specifically, DIB has undertaken the responsibility of overseeing the live streaming of the Australian Open, broadcasting various tennis matches throughout monitors and displays around the arena.
This was a multi-faceted project, involving much coordination with Tennis Australia to facilitate a smooth, problem-free operation that gives the Australian public the best experience possible.
Controlling the live feeds
DIB was tasked with managing broadcasts from various feeds and delegating their content to 50 simultaneous TV channels, all of which can be viewed on the various displays scattered around the arena.
Live event support
To minimise the possibility of coverage being disrupted, DIB also provided live event support for the entire two-week duration of the Australian Open. This involved:
- The provision of highly trained, professional DIB staff who remain onsite to assist with any faults or issues that may arise during operations
- Delegating the appropriate resources necessary to overcome any hurdles
DIB also conduct various cabling installations to temporarily expand the broadcasting system of the venue, ensuring that the feeds can reach any of the monitors installed within the venue.
The DIB team is proud of the work that it has done alongside Tennis Australia, and hopes to provide the best audio-visual experience possible for viewers of the Australian Open for years to come.
