Visitors to Sprint Center in Kansas City, MO, the nation’s number five arena, are greeted by a 70-foot media wall featuring interactive audio and video technology. They can experience music, video and games through a touch-screen panel, gesture recognition technology, focused audio, or even their own cell phones.
To create this incredible interactive experience for the more than one million guests visiting the Center annually, Sprint enlisted a team of display designers, creative agencies, interactive software developers, and audio/video integrator Mission Electronics. Mission Electronics choice for managing the video sources: the Sierra Pro XL™ 3232V5S wideband video and stereo audio routing switcher.
Mission Electronics designed an audio/video system that feeds a 4 x 4-foot video cube consisting of 16 40-inch LCD displays, plus two additional displays on either side of the video wall. The displays can showcase a single picture, 16 different pictures, or even blocks of four pictures by using the Sierra Pro XL router to direct the various signals.
“The Sierra Video router runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and has never had a hiccup,” Nelson said. “The capability of the display is constantly changing, so a reliable, versatile router is one of the most important components in the system.”
