QMS Reveals First City of Sydney Communication Panels
Leading digital outdoor media company QMS revealed the design of its state-of-the-art communication panels being introduced across its new City of Sydney network, with the first units already installed in Elizabeth and Castlereagh Streets.
A total of 150 units will be installed across the City of Sydney, with installation to be completed by August, weather permitting.
The communication panels consist of a double-sided, 86-inch digital display and feature an advertising face on one side and a City of Sydney community information face on the other. Important public messaging, upcoming event information and visitor services across the City with touch-screen capability will be featured to support increased community engagement for the residents and businesses within the City.
Designed by QMS and award-winning architects, Grimshaw, the new communication panels have been developed in consultation with independent accessibility consultants to prioritize accessibility in accordance with the City of Sydney’s Inclusion Action Plan and meet the AS1428.1 and AS1428.2 compliance standards.
QMS General Manager, City of Sydney, Jemma Enright, said: “Our re-energized City of Sydney network is focused on breathing new life into the economic and cultural capital of Australia. The communication panels are a critical inclusion in achieving that goal, providing both a high quality and visually stunning asset for advertisers, and an inclusive communication channel that prioritizes information for all Sydneysiders where they work, live and play.”
The panels will also be 100% carbon offset from installation, with the design of the infrastructure comprising responsibly sourced materials with high “end of life” recyclability in alignment with the City of Sydney’s commitment to sustainability.
The City of Sydney covers 26 square kilometers, with 10 distinct precincts across 33 suburbs, and is home to high-income, educated and high-spending audiences.
