Mohegan Sun upgrades arena fiber optics

The Mohegan Sun casino is upgrading the production of video content. It is using a range of fiber-optic linking systems to support and simplify production for a range of sports, concerts, game shows and other entertainment events.

Systems integrator Conover Production Services provided the fiber gear from Telecast. It allows the arena to standardize its fiber network on one connector type for easier setup and, in turn, establish more reliable fiber connectivity among venues across the facility and to its mobile production unit and transmission areas.

Following the expansion of the casino and construction of the arena, different types of fiber runs have been made to accommodate high-profile network productions. With increased use of fiber pathways and demands from internal productions, the facility chose to purchase and deploy its own industry-standard fiber solutions. The Mohegan Sun arena's new store of Telecast equipment includes Adder 322 audio, data and intercom multiplexers; DiamondBack II analog video multiplexers; Rattler HD/SDI links; and standalone point-of-view (POV) video, audio and data transceivers.

Conover Production Services installed the Telecast equipment to link four venues within the facility to a central production and transmission area. These venues include a 10,000-seat arena, home to the WNBA's Connecticut Sun and concerts for performers such as Aerosmith, Rascal Flatts and Eric Clapton; The Cabaret Theatre, an intimate venue in the Mohegan Sun's Casino of the Sky that hosts world class concert performers and comedians; Wolf Den, the center of entertainment in Mohegan Sun's Casino of the Earth, which plays host to billiards, arm wrestling, blackjack tournaments and other popular performers; and the Mohegan Sun hotel lobby, which has hosted NBC's "George Michael's Sports Machine," ESPN's "SportsCenter" and FOX's "Best Damn Sports Show," among others.

We feel the negatives are known and are a lot more comfortable recommending the space.
