It seems that fifty years is a long time to be in business these days. The P.A. People will celebrate its half-century ‘birthday’ later in 2021. More news in the months ahead!


Anzac Day Sporting Event communications

Event Communications …activity ramps up!

Happily, it has been a reasonably busy season for the Events Department. We have continued to support various sporting codes, and this has seen the Bose ShowMatch PA working hard; in Qudos Bank Arena for the Sydney Kings home games and the PA ‘Carts’ at both Netstrata Jubilee Stadium and Leichhardt Oval. We continue to support our stadium clients for game-day matches, along with the return of additional overlays for Anzac Day this year. The last couple of months have seen a return of activity with some of our corporate clients ‘in the room’ along with the continued integration of remote solutions. As always, we are providing innovative and practical communication solutions for our clients.

Blue Mountains Theatre Audio Upgrade

The Blue Mountains Theatre …audio upgrade expands capability

‘Recently we added a new centre speaker cluster which elevates the system to a new level and increases the theatrical options for the Venue’ said Brett Steele – Manager, Installed Systems at The P.A. People.

Back in 2015 – The P.A. People was tasked with supporting the AV requirements for the brand-new facility at Springwood in NSW – and were responsible for the installation of all the theatre audio, lighting, paging, vision systems, and communications infrastructure. The project was undertaken in conjunction with Kane Constructions. At the time, Josh Jones, Installations Project Manager on this task, said; ‘The audio-visual infrastructure allows various hirers and user groups to patch into the system – making it versatile and user-friendly’.

St Anne's AV Install

St Anne’s Catholic Church …AV upgrades welcomed!

“Our congregation is delighted with the outcome. As Parish Priest, I appreciate the professionalism demonstrated during every phase of the works.” Monsignor Greg Flynn, Parish Priest.

As with many venues during the various stages of COVID-19, congregations and activities at churches have faced restrictions. This has led some to consider their level of technical support and to upgrade accordingly.

St Andrew’s College is a co-residential college within the University of Sydney with a population of over 285 male and female undergraduates, resident Fellows and graduate residents.
