As the weather is finally starting to cool off, football season is heating up here in Texas.
Whether it’s at high school, college, or professional sporting events, you can expect to see some of the following five audio visual technologies enhancing your experience.
Sports teams are already rolling out plans to update their audio visual equipment. Some arenas are ahead of others. With more games televised than ever, sport teams have started integrating these technologies to make the live experience worth attending.
Better acoustics make performances more enjoyable
Acoustic consultants design spaces that echo or flatten sound. Finding the right mixture of structures and materials makes it easier for spectators to hear action on the field without interfering with people ordering snacks in the concourse.
As acoustic equipment improves, expect gameday to become even more enjoyable. You’ll have the opportunity to hear players grunt and crowds cheer without losing the ability to talk to your friends.
360-Degree video screens offer exceptional views
The upcoming Atlanta Falcons stadium will include the world’s first 350-degree video screen. It will stretch 335 meters around the arena to give every person an unprecedented view of the action.
This accomplishment will cost the Falcons a lot of money. Building the stadium will take about $1.5 billion. While this is certainly a large sum, you can bet that the team budgeted its audio-visual expenses to get the most for every dollar.
Drones can provide unbelievable close-ups
As drone technology improves, expect to see more stadiums use them to provide unbelievable close-ups of every play.
Instead of zooming in from a distance, drones can hover right above players. If you think that today’s cameras give you a sharp view, just wait until you can see the expressions on every player’s face.
Unified communications help communication
Exciting coverage depends on a broadcasters ability to communicate with coaches, players, refs, and other people on the scene. Unified communications technology will make it easier for reporters to exchange messages via text, video, and audio formats. Whether you attend the game or watch at home, you’ll get in-depth coverage that helps you understand every event’s progress.
Improved video conferencing technology will also make it easier for reporters to communicate with remote broadcasters and experts who can provide more insight into each play.
LED lighting creates better visibility for fans
The LED lighting included in modern stadiums creates better visibility for fans while helping owners save money and controlling temperatures. LED lights provide bright coverage that will eliminate shadows from fields. Since they’re cooler than older types of lights, stadium owners will spend less money on climate control.
All of those lights will require a lot of cables. The good news is that companies can use covert cabling without jeopardizing their connections. Carefully arranged cables will enhance the viewing experience for fans while making it easier for technicians to troubleshoot any problems that arise during games.
Audio visual tech for the win
The future of audio visual will radically change the way that people experience sporting events.
Whether you attend games or watch them from home, improvements in audio visual technology will make every event more exciting by stimulating your senses and giving you access to more information.
