Arizona Stadium

 
 
Pro Sound was awarded a design-build project led by Hunt Construction Group for the latest NFL super stadium and the only facility in the United States with a moveable field and an operable roof. Our efforts included complete coordination and installation of all sound, video, control, RF/TV, satellite and broadcasting facilities.

Pro Sound worked with the project Architects and Engineers to produce well coordinated drawings that provided for electrical loading, mechanical and air-conditioning requirements, structural connectivity, and acoustical coordination.

Pro Sound continues to support this facility including work or consulting services at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and BCS Championshios in 2007 and SuperBowl in 2008.

The work included a high powered distributed Meyer Sound Milo line array speaker system with additional powered Meyer Sound UPA1-P delay speakers installed at the outer edges of the upper seating areas. In shadowed areas additional un-powered speaker systems were provided for audio support. The entire audio system is run on a digital backbone with analog backup. The principal digital transport method uses CobraNet technology and all signaling is routed through a Yamaha DM-2000 console. All amplification is provided using QSC Audio amplifiers.

A multi-definition video production system was installed using Ross Video Synergy switcher including a 64 channel router. Sony professional grade cameras are included along with a new Sony wireless based unit. Pro Sound designed and installed a complete production control room using Leitch, Evertz, Doremi, Bittree, Midas, Sony and Panasonic professional as some of the major pieces. Pioneer 61" plasmas provide the “preview and on-air” viewing while there are many 24" LCD and 7" Panorama monitors for Engineering use. A Non-Linear Editing suite was also provided using Apple’s Final Cut Pro System using quad-core processing.

Pro Sound installed an extensive broadcast cabling system using tri-axial, coaxial, fiber optics, audio, and tele-data backbones terminating throughout the entire stadium in custom broadcast panels housed in stainless steel boxes. This system was coordinated with the National Broadcast networks to provide them with the latest requirements in broadcast technologies.

An RF/TV system was provided and installed using off-air digital signals, satellite receivers in both high definition and standard definition, and local cable TV. The entire head-end is processed principally in HD format but also processes in standard definition. Stadium TV distribution is accomplished via a hybrid of fiber optics and copper cabling providing a 1-Gigahertz TV system enabling the stadium to be complete high definition.
