PEL leads innovation in Stadium AV
This January AV industry feature in INAVATE magazine carries comment from PEL's experts as it studies the new and refurbished stadium sector, showing that owners are tuning in to the potential for integration and reinvention, as a way of improving the fan-experience.
The article highlights the importance of PEL’s knowledge of “The Green Guide” and explains the staged approach pioneered by PEL, where systems are evolved strategically each close-season, making the most of each short period for refurbishment, after having established a strong base network architecture.
It recognises a process-problem with new stadia, where different AV feeds for music, advertising and safety systems are inevitably installed late-on and close to project-completion, which can limit the scope for best-practice integration.
PEL’s Vic Swain and Chris Wilcox feature in the section on refurbishment, where stadium owners have been able to live with their uniquely imperfect stadium, survey fan-experience and therefore have experienced the mismatches in potential integration.
