AV1 opens new facility to house $1m in equipment investment


Sydney-based audio-visual production company AV1 has opened a new facility in Alexandria following a $1 million investment in its operations.

The larger facility has a dedicated space for set up and rehearsal of live events, training capabilities, studios for content production and remote recordings and increased inventory storage for operational efficiencies, including pre-loading vehicles.


AV1 has increased its inventory with the latest equipment including Barco vision switching systems, Sony cameras and advanced wireless communications systems, along with the replenishment of digital audio equipment and lighting.

The new facility has a dedicated training space to allow rapid upskilling, with the company welcoming new permanent positions and an 18-month training programme to level-up existing staff and attract new team members.

“Our business is growing, our clients are investing in their live event strategies, and we are poised to continue to deliver exceptional productions for them,” said Keith Wootton, AV1’s managing director.

“We have always been and remain to be all about our customers. They are at the heart of everything we do.

“2023 will be a landmark year for AV1. We have come a long way in our 18 years of operations and we’re not stopping now. A healthy business, hearty team and happy customers have been key to our success.”
