Introducing Ci's amazing Whitten Oval scoreboard

Wow. It’s not a bad picture for a television, let alone a scoreboard. Once you realise that’s a broadcast picture from channel 10 being displayed, the enormity of what’s been achieved at Whitten Oval sinks in. The Western Bulldogs now have a scoreboard that puts all others in the shade.

Ci not only provided the screen and installation but also created the content management software from scratch. This enables the club to compose content from a mix of scores, live action, replays, news feeds, sponsor logos and advertisements. Dollar for dollar, this is the best scoreboard in Australia.

“A big Thankyou to you and your team for all of your hard work and late nights to finish the screen ready for our first match. Your commitment and cooperation has been outstanding. The screen looks fantastic!”

Maree Hallebone Risk & Governance Manager @ Western Bulldogs

“The feedback from our guys of your professionalism and collaboration to deliver an outcome within tight parameters has been fantastic and we are grateful.”

Ameet Bains. CEO @ Western Bulldogs

“Thank you team - the screen looks amazing! It’s been a huge effort - but so worth it!”

Sue Clarke. COO @ Western Bulldogs

Ci would like to acknowledge the contribution of Populous as the project architect.

Ci helps Queensland Museum see the world a little better

The projection mapping installation Ci provided the Queensland Museum for its Science Centre has been a big hit. Spread out across 3 zones, the centre houses over 40 interactive exhibits incorporating audio visual which the public can explore to discover how science, technology, engineering and maths affect our everyday world.

This ‘Science on a Sphere’ projection system shown above offers a variety of displays selectable from the adjacent kiosk.  These can range from a complete 3D model of the planet earth (as if you were viewing it from a spacecraft a million miles away), to a replica of the sun, Jupiter, Saturn, or even satellites of those planets’  It’s amazing to see a rotating planet on the sphere and then realise it’s not the sphere rotating, but four stitched images moving in unison.

In an emergency, an incident room proves really useful

This incident room installed by Ci for the Mackay Regional Council was put to good use almost immediately with Queensland’s bushfire breakout. Control rooms, operation centres and incident rooms are invariably satisfying projects to deliver. The end users really appreciate them.

This is what any town's football scoreboard can look like...

Electronic scoreboards for Australian football have come a long way since the first sepia version was installed at VFL Park when it opened. 2019 will see the performance standard raised yet again when Ci’s first example gets installed at the Whitten Oval. Internet enabled, it can display a news feed across the bottom as well as the Bulldogs winning score at the top. Thanks to the quality of the LED to be deployed for Whitten Oval, any sports action content displayed will look great.
