Icor installs AV system for ice hockey stadium nightclub14 November 2014
The Club Red nightclub inside the BB&T Arena has had a new multi-purpose audiovisual system installed. The arena is the home of the Florida Panthers ice hockey team, with the club overlooking the centre of the ice rink.
The audiovisual system was designed and installed by Icor International Systems of Doral, Florida and provides live Panthers coverage, video playback and sound reinforcement.
The arena also hosts concerts, and audio and video from these events can be routed through the club’s AV system. To provide coverage throughout the 12,000sqft space, Icor installed 25 large screen video displays, a videowall and 66 Community D5 ceiling loudspeakers.
Bill Craig, Icor vice president, said: “We prefer the Community D Series ceiling speakers for projects like Club Red. They have wide, smooth dispersion, plenty of output power, clear voice for the sports feeds and great musical sound quality for concerts and private events.”
The loudspeakers are powered by QSC amplifiers and a Symetrix DSP provides signal processing and audio mixing. Video sources are routed by a Crestron system and the entire AV system is controlled from a 17in Crestron touchpanel display.
