With 2023 well under way, Pro AV manufacturers and industry experts have been busy elevating the fan experience for stadiums and arenas across the country and beyond. Here’s a look at some of the most interesting and exciting AV upgrades stadiums around the globe have seen lately:
tvOne has released a new video showcasing their stadium offerings, which include a host of AV solutions across all areas of an arena’s needs. These include menu boards, interactive map stations for attendees, information stations, and a variety of eye-catching video wall designs. These are just a few showcased options for the general sections of stadium interiors, while a bevy of control room, racking, power, and signal management solutions are available for more specialized areas.
Last year, the 48th G7 Summit took place in Germany. As a large number of world leaders were present, it goes without saying that there was a heavy security presence. To help aid the effort, integrators AVS used VuWall’s TRx centralized video wall management software, encoders, and video wall controllers to transform the city’s stadium into a police command center.
The Green Bay Packers have selected Daktronics to upgrade their home stadium with nearly 24,500 square feet of LED displays. Fans who come see the season opener this fall will be treated to the new displays, including two main end-zone field displays, two auxiliary displays, and 60 concourse displays featuring 2.9-millimeter pixel spacing.
JBL Professional is elevating the experience at UBS Arena in Long Island, New York. The multi-use arena was looking to upgrade the AV portion of its offerings, from the main arena, all the way through its various meeting spaces. New features include a central array system with VTX speakers in stereo sound and individually powered delays for concert events.
February’s Super Bowl halftime show featured L-Acoustics for the first time in over two decades, where they delivered premium audio for Rihanna’s stunning performance. The NFL’s mandate that nothing be on the field during the halftime show this year meant that the audio system had to be flown. L-Acoustics gear was more than up for the task, with the aerial deployment allowing for additional room, which meant more power and more coverage.
St. Louis’ CITYPARK is the new home of the CITY SC, the city’s MLS franchise. Designed with maximizing crowd noise in mind, the stadium’s layout presented some unique challenges for an integrated audio system. L-Acoustics was up for the task, and the company’s A15i loudspeaker proved to be the perfect fit. Cignal and TSI leveraged the loudspeaker’s unique characteristics to implement a powerhouse audio system that fell in line with the stadium’s unique design.
