Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse - Portable hearing solution

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is investigating how institutions like schools, churches, sports clubs and government organisations have responded to allegations and instances of child sexual abuse. It is the job of the Royal Commission to uncover where systems have failed to protect children so it can make recommendations on how to improve laws, policies and practices.

Redfish were engaged to provision a number of core AV elements to integrate into the portable hearing rig for offsite hearings. All systems were to be placed into robust transportable cases for easy movement around the country.
 
The rig was to reuse existing key items taken form the hearing rooms refit and then build a solution that provided a similar set-up  to the main hearing rooms.  This was to include:
 
  • Audio systems to support all members appearing
  • Audio outlets for media, steno operators and digital recording
  • Voice lift for each room
  • Web casting integration and support
  • Portable hearing loop
  • Integration into the  new AMX control system
  • Integration into evidence presentation system
