… a vital public service

Hearing Augmentation Systems are a legal requirement in many public spaces as defined in the Building Code of Australia. They are also a vital public service.

The P.A. People has been delivering hearing augmentation solutions for well over twenty years. The company has been and continues to be a leader in the design and delivery of these systems. Prior to Sydney’s iconic Olympic Games in the year 2000, we installed hearing augmentation systems in many of the new venues that were constructed - including the Olympic Stadium and while not as ‘visible’ or well known, we also provided coverage of Yulang - a 5,000sqm outdoor paved space around the Sydney Olympic Park railway station. Since that time, we have installed solutions in The Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Town Hall and Sydney Airport - just a few venues that have benefited from our understanding of and expertise in Hearing Augmentation.

The purpose of these systems is to assist those with hearing difficulties to both comprehend and enjoy material that is being amplified through an installed PA system, and their provision is mandatory in many public spaces, including educational institutions, places of business, auditoria, rooms used for legal proceedings and some reception areas. 

All systems designed and installed by The P.A. People are custom engineered solutions that draw on their extensive experience working with builders, engineering consultants, suppliers, clients and end-users.

An appropriate Hearing Augmentation System will improve the experience and engagement of your patrons and audiences.

Download Case Study

Since the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006 The P.A. People has utilised IP based video technology within our Event Communications offering. In recent years we have had the opportunity to expand our event based offering into the Installed Systems arm of the Company and into the IPTV market.

In 2011 we were successful in the design and supply of IPTV systems into both Carrara Stadium (now Metricon Stadium) and Canberra Stadium. This was shortly followed in 2012 with the provision of a system for the Sydney Showgrounds Stadium.

Our most recent and significant IPTV system can be found at the Royal Randwick Racecourse redevelopment.  This system features some sixty channels of content, 30 pages of digital signage, and over 700 screens ranging from 21” touchscreen PC’s through to 84” TV’s .  The project includes the design and implementation of a specialist Ethernet Network that spans the entire precinct with over 1,000 network ports as well as the installation of the IPTV head-end and all the screens.

The systems in each of these venues have been delivered under a design-construct philosophy, and the implementations have ranged from full turnkey designs including the network and screens through to the delivery of just IPTV technology itself.

Recently, with the addition of an optional middleware package from Enabledware we are also able to provide a comprehensive integrated signage solution.

The P.A. People is an Exterity Platinum Streamforce Partner, and an experienced Spinetix integrator. We have also worked with IPTV solutions from Visionary Solutions, Mediaware, and Amino amongst others and we are able to offer a comprehensive IPTV solution complete with long term maintenance and support.

A system is only as good as its interface...

The true value of a system is often only realised if the system is easy to use.
To achieve this goal Control Systems are often employed to provide a simple integrated user interface for a system.

The P.A. People is a specialists in the design and provision of Control Systems. We have implemented a variety of user interfaces for clients as diverse as the Sydney Opera House, St Mary’s Cathedral, Stadium Australia, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the RAAF Richmond and many education facilities throughout Australia.

We are able to select from a wide range of appropriate technology from simple button controls, through touch screens and hand held remotes, to large scale client server systems.

Simple Classroom Control

From the provision of a programmable remote control, to a simple wall mounted control panel that controls the projector screen and a playback device, we are able to provide a wide range of simple classroom control systems so that you can be in control of the technology, rather than the technology being in control of you.

Board Rooms, Training Rooms and Tertiary Education

The next step along the control systems road is the provision of a fully integrated solution that can take care of all the functionality that a modern training or presentation facility can offer - not only the presentation technology including projection, audio, and lighting, but also air conditioning, IT integration, room booking, etc.

We design systems that can be controlled from a combination of touch screens, web interfaces and simple button panels, and that can email the appropriate person when the system needs maintenance.

Our Control systems are drawn from acknowledged industry leaders - AMX and Crestron - so you can be assured of their integrity and reliability for years to come.
