Sandgate Bay Of Lights

We had fun the weekend just gone with projection mapping this cute little church out at Sandgate. We used two projectors to cover the front walls and using Resolume Arena where Dean from Bacon Factory Films put together a collage of historical photos from the area with audio score and narration. Pictures dont really do justice, but it ran for two nights and virtually the whole community in the area came to experience this with such positive feedback.

Have you got a great building in your area and a story to tell? Get in touch and lets see what we can do for you.

Getting ready to turn the lights on!

PwC Federal Budget Insights

Vast was engaged to supply the delivery of the live webcast for this years federal budget insights that took place in Brisbane at The Royal International Convention Centre. We acquired a camera mix and graphics content with audio from the local AV team on the ground at the event and pushed it to the clients' web-server for registered attendees around Australia to watch it live.

This was a successful and huge event and we look forward to being a part of next years.


Royal Visit to Brisbane

Vast AV was honoured to be involved with such a prestigious event yesterday for the Royal visit of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall to Brisbane for the opening of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.


The Premiers Department engaged us to supply a full production in the Botanic Gardens which involved a large LED screen and sound system to cover the area for the public to view the live broadcast of Channel Sevens coverage as their plane landed to when they arrived at Old Government House for the 21 gun salute.

Check out some of the pictures, you can also see just how close we were to the Royals as they walked by our installation. Some would say we had the best spot in the gardens with the 7000+ people that turned up.

Stepping out in style...

We have just finished commissioning three high-speed video data capture systems for All Podiatry at their two stores located in Brisbane.

The state of the art setup included two HD digital cameras on a vertical mounted dolly with a gimbal for positioning the cameras around the treadmill to get the best shot whether at the ankles or upper thigh.


Each camera position had a dimmable LED panel and we could also adjust the colour temperature to suit the environmental shop lighting and get the best image into the cameras.


Custom built PCs were required with plenty of "grunt", to deal with capturing two SDI video feeds of full high definition video at 60 fps into the system to be trans-coded into Silicon Coach Pro, which is a great piece of software designed for sporting and medical analysis to ascertain movement and joint diagnosis. We needed a high framerate so that upon analysis, it could be slowed right down to get a clear picture of what was happening.


All this in a compact Stand-Up Workstation, made it easy for the staff to get access immediately and start recording to provide instant feedback from the system and recommend the best footwear to get people moving in comfort again.

I highly suggest you pop in and test it out. Stores are located in Indooroopilly and Windsor.

New! Roland V-60HD Vision Switcher

Excited to announce we have acquired the new Roland V-60HD Switcher in our inventory, and were one of the first as they landed off the boat early January.

This compact switcher has all the features you would expect on a larger unit at a much higher price point. Scaling on 2 x HDMI's and 4 x HD-SDI inputs gives you most scenarios whether you are conferencing or webcasting. Multiple outputs on HDMI and HD-SDI as well as an AUX out which suprisingly comes in handy a lot!

Enquire to hire or purchase this unit from us, we are Roland stockists and can get you some of the best pricing in Brisbane.


Plebiscite Results Countdown

Vast was engaged to supply a large LED screen, staging and audio for around 3000 people at Queens Park in Brisbane City for the countdown to the official results of the marriage equality vote. With all the news crews buzzing around capturing the emotions and stories, there was plenty celebrating the outcome once it was revealed. It was a historical day for us, that we won't forget too quickly.

Darren Percival & Band

We had the pleasure of doing full production for Darren Percival and his band last week. Some of the key factors were to style the event with a 'cabaret' feel in mind, with some sneaky corner cutting like the electronic keyboard in the piano shell. Everyone had a great night and Darren personally thanked us for a splendid job.

Hitachi Reveals New Excavator Range

What a big day we had setting up a Kabuki reveal for a 12 metre vehicle along with lights, PA System and 10 foot screens to bookend the main attraction. This was then followed by a dinner inside a clear hoecker where we had more lights and sound for an eight piece band. Also we decided to map the back of the stage with a projector and created segments to customise the graphics and video in those areas. Take a look at the video, it will explain better.

Iron Chef Sakai at TAFE Qld

We were asked by Tafe Queensland to offer a webcast solution for the visit of Iron Chef Sakai who was giving a master class in their main auditorium. The event sold out quite quickly, therefore TAFE Qld were able to offer those who couldn't attend an alternative to watch it from their mobile device or computer as it was happening live!

BlueWater Festival

Was an awesome day to kick off easter with thousands coming out to witness the re-launch of the newly designed pier at Shorncliffe. Vast was running the main and solo stages as well as the Lord Mayor's media launch. The highlight was seeing crowds of people rock and roll dancing to the first band, Facin' The Crowd. Check them out if you get the opportunity. The Blues Brothers tribute was a great closer for the day also.

BMW Display Brisbane

We were approached by BMW in Brisbane to design a video and lighting show loop for their BMW i8 on display. Some key features about this are dual projector display onto custom panels in a curved array, pixel mapped lighting triggered by the video. The back end of the 3 month display had to have automation to shut down and start up each day and remote access for any maintenance or changes. We are pretty happy with the end result.
