Technical Direction Company (TDC) has been shortlisted for the Best Technical Achievement and Innovation category of the Australian Event Awards. TDC was nominated for its involvement in Vivid Sydney this year.

For Vivid Sydney 2015, TDC provided video expertise for edge mapping techniques as well as core video technology across a 10km distance as the festival expanded into the inner-city precincts of Sydney. All in all, TDC provided nearly 9,000 square meters of video (or 7,464,960,000 video pixels) projected onto the architecture of over 10 buildings in Sydney, during Vivid Sydney’s 18-nights.

The company worked with Destination NSW, the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, as well as various artists for each installation. Destination NSW, owner and manager of the Vivid Sydney 2015 festival, is also shortlisted in the Best Event category of the Australian Event Awards.

Michael Hassett, managing director at TDC, said: “Being shortlisted for this award is very exciting. A crucial ingredient to the innovation at Vivid Sydney 2015 and its success was made possible by our highly knowledgeable technical and production teams and Australia’s largest stock of the most advanced video imaging technologies which are deployed in projects to wow, entertain and engage audiences.”
