After an exhaustive selection process, Big Screen Projects were awarded the contract to supply the Star with a flexible and world class LED display system for the Event Centre .
The 55 sqm of 5mm LED allows the venue to supply clients with customized “High End” displays, which are fresh and unique for every show, whilst minimizing labour for set-up and pack-down times. Currently the largest in house Hi-Res LED screen in any Event space in Sydney, the 10m by 5.5m screen is made up of 220 panels of LED in a 5mm pitch. The modular design allows for flexibility in configuring the LED into a variety of different size walls and designs.
The first major international act to use the new system was Alicia Keyes last December, since then the LED has been featured on almost every show held within the venue. More recently the huge screen was the main feature at the Star’s Hyundai Fan Park for the FIFA World Cup.
Big Screen Projects consulted on the LED System design and supplied the LED Display, Front end processing, Customized dolly system and LED Frames for speedy deployment, Power distribution system, ongoing support and 24/7 service to the Star Technical Team .

The Event Centre will be showing all Australia’s world cup games and the finals on Sydney largest indoor high resolution screen procured from Big Screen Projects. This will offer our patrons a completely immersive experience when viewing the game on a 10M by 5.5m screen.
