Minnesota is in the middle of getting a new professional football stadium.
The Minnesota Vikings partnered with Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment to manage the Stadium Preview Center. They wanted a world-class preview center to simulate a fan’s perspective of premium seating and experience zones that will be at the team’s new home.
The preview center was designed to provide an exciting and interactive glimpse of the new facility with full size mock suites, scale models, wall and lighting décor and cutting edge technology. Current and prospective season ticket holders can get a unique and exclusive look at what to expect from the new stadium in 2016.
The 7,500-square-foot Preview Center is the largest ever built by an NFL team and is located just south of the new stadium construction site. Access to the Preview Center is by appointment only.
EPA Audio Visual, Inc., implemented more than 40 HD video displays in an array of unique applications representing Suite, Club and Luxury areas. Multiple video walls, interactive touch screens, laser projection systems and a nine-monitor “Player Tunnel” were among the solutions deployed. Chief met challenging mounting requirements. All monitors, including a 3×3 video wall, were installed using the Fusion mounting system.
Multiple installs were recessed into custom fabricated display boxes benefiting greatly from the post install leveling and cable stand features. Additional solutions included multi-zone distributed audio, wireless presentation interfacing, event triggered automation and comprehensive AV & lighting system control.
EPA also assisted the client with their executive Board Room, which deployed a professional audio video conferencing system featuring dual 80” monitors and wireless presentation capability.
EPA was able to meet the client’s expectations and the promise to their customers by providing an outstanding solution that was elegantly integrated into the space. Wow factor was paramount; however, the system needed to be automated and seamless for users of all experience levels. Every day, hundreds of viewers are brought through the Player Tunnel, accompanying interactive monitors and experience zones.
The solution has proven to be easy to use, reliable and impactful. The technology provides an extremely powerful presentation tool for Vikings staff and has been a critical asset in their marketing efforts.
