I should have elaborated when writing my comment. I agree the music is definitely not a problem nor are live segments when they are quizzing fans in the arena during gamebreaks. But in between periods or during commercial breaks I do find it difficult to understand what is being said if they are broadcasting an interview with the players etc. Maybe that has more to do with the taped segment itself rather than the actual audio within the arena.

For instance, someone was trying to tell me about how AppleTV is “state-of-the-art”. Obviously he’s never touched Windows Media Center with 8 CableCards and a stack of HDHomeruns. Get my drift?

What might be interesting to follow is what is going on with the scoreboard in Sunrise, FL. That building was basically put together by Dean Jordan, who then left and came here to help GaleForce build this one. There are many similarities with the buildings, including the scoreboard.

And the Tar Heels, who get to call this building home once a year. ]]> By: Jonathan Hawkins http://www.gogoraleigh.com/2009/06/02/rbc-center-gets-new-scoreboard/comment-page-1/#comment-18399 Wed, 03 Jun 2009 04:54:33 +0000 https://www.gogoraleigh.com/2009/06/02/rbc-center-gets-new-scoreboard/#comment-18399 Bruce and CarnifeX,

The audio system in the RBC Center was completely replaced during the 2008 summer. If you were able to make it to any games this season you may have noticed that it is much crisper and clearer now, and the bass can be pretty booming.

Should that business fail, as those in comparable cities currently are, it will cost us, the taxpayers, a fortune. (have you compared your property tax bills to those you got just five years ago? Notice restaurant prices climbing?) The viability of this facility is of extreme importance to this area (as opposed to some sandwich store). Ignoring what other cities are doing with similar situations is a recipe for outright failure (something at which the federal government has become quite skilled).

In all honesty, this scoreboard is the most exciting development in Raleigh since the Lego store was announced. If we are going to beat our chests as a “high-tech” area, we better not be showing the rest of the continent something equivalent to the Ford Taurus. The Dallas Cowboys aren’t putting up a $40 million HDTV (the largest HD screen in the world) because of a Myopia epidemic in Dallas.

LOL Good thing other Raleigh sites are keeping up with new restaurants and the new SECU building planned for downtown. ]]> By: CarnifeX http://www.gogoraleigh.com/2009/06/02/rbc-center-gets-new-scoreboard/comment-page-1/#comment-18371 Tue, 02 Jun 2009 21:01:06 +0000 https://www.gogoraleigh.com/2009/06/02/rbc-center-gets-new-scoreboard/#comment-18371 Bruce, would you say the audio needs improvement? I’ve been very impressed with that aspect of the arena since their last upgrade in 2006 after winning The Cup. I can feel the bass from that system during games.

It’s my understanding that “state-of-the-art” means HD and LED.

You can find it here: https://canesvision-hd.blogspot.com/

They confirm on there that it will in fact be essentially the same design as the Prudential Center videoboard. Here is a schematic of the exact board they are installing: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/_Vr9UptUKqCA/SiQImZcAgNI/AAAAAAAAAEg/DYCTujs_hYs/s1600-h/DAK+DAY+1+018b.jpg

I hope the improvements in audio are as impressive as that of the video. ]]>
