Recognised as some of the best in the industry, the MCEC technology team offers diverse skills across lighting, audio, vision, and IT, as well as decades of experience at the venue. They will work with you to make your event truly memorable, and ensure that it runs smoothly and professionally every step of the way.

Visualisation Studio

At MCEC’s Visualisation Studio, you can work with our technology team to create a virtual 3D representation of your event space. IMAGINE the possibilities of audio, video and lighting, and then view a precise and realistic depiction of your ideas.

Being able to view the Melbourne Room set up, lighting and staging details through the Visualisation Studio during the year was amazing, we could visualise how the room was going to look on the night.

I could not have asked for a better team to be working with than the technology team, whatever we asked, they were able to assist.

Social media integration 

Through an easy-to-use iPad interface, you can control and moderate the display of an event-based Twitter feed. Display options include room door cards, LCD screens and slides integrated into event sessions. You can also display rich media content including Instagram and RSS feeds.

Webcasting and event recording

M Channel, MCEC’s webcasting service, allows event presentations to be viewed online, and synched with audio, video and presentation slides.

A range of cost-effective event recording options are also available, using either pre-installed room cameras or broadcast-quality high-definition cameras.

Live View screen
