Wintrust Arena: Audiovisual Fan Experience

Our audiovisual scope included the design of the broadcast and production systems, including in-house video production control room, signal distribution systems, broadcast cabling plant, large venue LED and scoreboard displays, and exterior LED systems. Additionally, SM&W designed large venue sound reinforcement systems for the arena bowl, and done so in a way to suit various types of events. Both audio and media distribution systems take advantage of IP networking and structured cabling systems as much as possible to ensure the facility has the capability to expand and evolve into emerging and future technologies.

Arena design that shines through:

  • A high-end elaborate audio and video design system integrating in-house systems with full broadcast ties.
  • Intricately designed audio system, carefully mapped and designed for optimal coverage and intelligibility. Also utilizing ties to broadcast and the ability to tie in for multi-use events, as well as Dante audio network for distributing audio around the facility
  • A large deployment of signage and IPTV across the facility, including to the scoreboard and LED displays and banners.
  • A state-of-the-art control room for central monitoring and control of all audio, video, and broadcast feeds.
