Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Audiovisual upgrades at Kansas State University stadium

Kansas State University continues to call on Daktronics for upgrades to Bill Snyder Family Stadium with new auxiliary video displays and an upgraded audio system customized to fit with the other improvements made to the stadium in recent years.

“We are excited to continue partnering with Daktronics as these new upgrades are introduced at Bill Snyder Family Stadium,” says Laird Veatch, acting K-State athletics director. “Like the addition of the Carl & Mary Ice videoboards on the north end zone, the improved sound system and statistics boards in the south end zone will be another step in our continued efforts to deliver The Best Fan Experience in the Big 12.”

Two displays measuring 9.5ft high by 26ft wide will flank the existing main display and replace the existing hustle stats scoreboards. Additionally, two field-level displays measuring 3.5ft high by 24ft wide will be installed. These displays feature 13HD pixel layouts for pristine image quality and contrast as they provide additional statistics and other dynamic content for each event.

“The addition of new structures in the stadium changes the audio experience,” says John Olsen, Daktronics audio sales representative. “We’ve designed their new system to better account for the current configuration of the stadium’s architecture with the intent to give all the fans a more consistent sonic experience, including those seated in the south end zone.”

The new audio system positioned in the south end zone is larger and more powerful than the previous system, but also comes with greater control of sound levels and system tunings to improve the audio experience for nearly every seat in the stadium.

The previous audio system was installed nearly 10 years ago and since that time the stadium has welcomed new fixed seating, video displays, an athletics building and a press box. The new audio system takes those enhancements into account and is flexible enough to be reconfigured in the future.

Updated front-of-house equipment such as new digital mixing consoles, advanced wireless microphone systems, computerized system monitoring panels, redundant audio computers and a new announcers interface are included in the project. Each new enhancement offers more control, upgraded audio and greater monitoring of the audio system performance.
