The sports industry has come a long way from manual scoreboards and unintelligible announcements in ballparks, stadiums and arenas. Today, a ticketholder attending a professional sports event can expect state-of-the-art LED scoreboards, digital signage, crystal clear audio and massive video walls featuring HD video content for fan entertainment. Sporting events are well-known for their reliance on AV technology to inform, entertain and enlighten fans.
Sports fans have come to expect more than just the game; they want entertainment. Considering that the average price of a National Football League ticket in the 2009 season was $75, fans attend sporting events for the total experience. As a result, the power of AV is used to bring the action, excitement and game play to each seat in the venue.
