Systems-integrator-design company Venue Services Group (VSG) has been awarded a contract to perform systems installation work for The Arrowhead Pond arena in Anaheim, CA, home to the NHL’s Anaheim Mighty Ducks. VSG has been hired to modernize the facility’s in-house analog scoreboard-control-room facilities and convert and rebuild the system to be HD-compatible at a cost of more than $1 million. The Arrowhead Pond Arena project is scheduled for an August 2004 completion date, in time for the upcoming hockey season.
The project includes a complete rebuild of its control room that feeds the arena scoreboard and the updating of audio and video production equipment to facilitate the transition to HD and improve the technical quality of arena productions. Also included in the project is installation of SMPTE fiber to nine camera locations within the facility. VSG has recently completed similar SMPTE fiber-installation work at both the Fleet Center and Fenway Park in Boston, MA.
