The Changing Face Of The Old NEC

There are lots of exciting things happening at the old NEC site in Birmingham and at RF Digital Systems we are proud to be playing a part in it. The LG Arena on the NEC site is now called the Genting Arena as a result of a new partnership with global leisure and entertainment business Genting Group. Right next door to the Genting Arena is one of the most exciting developments not only in Birmingham, but the whole of the UK – Resorts World Birmingham. It's not quite finished yet but it's well on the way.


At RF Digital we have been involved in installing the brand new state of the art Digital TV and Satellite systems to all areas of the Genting NEC Resort world site, getting them ready for the thousands of visitors that will be descending on the resort later this year, when it opens. To be exact, we are actually installing a system called fibre IRS (FIRS) which allows TV and satellite to be distributed over fibre to various areas. The system is distributing to the hotel, the casino, cinema, shopping mall, conference centre, spa and all food and beverage areas. When complete we can provide satellite signals from any satellite available. The hotel system is providing all TV and satellite channels from 2 satellites to all 190 hotel rooms.

As well as the casino and the hotel, Resorts World Birmingham will offer visitors a superb choice of restaurants, bars, an 11 screen IMAX cinema, outlet shopping and an Asian themed spa – all under one roof.

Resorts World destinations can currently be found in Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and New York, so Birmingham is joining an elite group!

Working on the Resorts World Birmingham Digital and Satellite TV installation was a fantastic project that we were delighted to be involved with and we now eagerly await the opening of the resort to experience it in all its glory!
