Victoria Racing Club, Flemington Racecourse

Services: Installation

Client: Multiplex

Location: Melbourne, VIC

The new Members Stand at Flemington Racecourse encompasses bars, betting facilities, open viewing, dining areas, functions rooms and other specialised areas for race days and small events and functions.

A venue-wide distributed PA and video system was required, which operates on event race days and small events and functions. Displays operate from the racecourse MATV system on located menu boards. The audio system comprises 4 main feeds from the Flemington control room, which involves integration into the existing legacy systems.

Fredon were engaged by Multiplex to carry out the Audio Visual works, which comprised of:

  • A building of 4 levels, plus a betting ring and separate owners and trainers stand
  • 303 individual displays
  • 844 JBL loudspeakers
  • General race information display systems
  • Digital signage and way finding systems
  • Point of Sale (POS) and menu displays
  • Network-based BSS DSP and Crown Amplifiers
  • System Redundancy
  • Network-based WiFi hearing augmentation systems

The project was completed in September 2018, in time for the Spring Racing Carnival.
