Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 2, 2007
Kroenke Sports Enterprises (KSE) recently selected Burst for the design and build of the video production system for the big screen display at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado, located nine miles northwest of Downtown Denver.
With 24 full-sized lighted outdoor fields and an 18,000-seat outdoor stadium, Dick's Sporting Goods Park will be the largest soccer sports complex in the world when it opens this spring. The sports park will house the MLS Rapids starting next season and will also serve as the official home of Colorado Youth Soccer and NDP Lacrosse.
Working in partnership with KSE, Turner Construction and Empowercom Inc., Burst will manage the engineering, design, equipment procurement and installation of equipment in the video production room at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, which is owned and operated by KSE.
The design will meet the present and future needs of the video production system for the stadium screen and other stadium video needs. Burst's flexible system design accommodates various staffing requirements for events of differing sizes.
"We were pleased that Burst came forward and created a design on such a short timeline that is flexible and functional. Burst has been exceptional in dealing with the accelerated time issues," says Alan Schroeder, Manager of Arena Technology at Denver's Pepsi Center. Schroeder is also responsible for technology at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
The project will be completed in early April, just in time for the April 7 inaugural match, Rapids vs. DC United.
"Burst is happy to have the opportunity to work with Kroenke Sports in designing and building an effective, functional, reliable video production system for a state of the art MLS stadium," says Doug Houston, VP of Systems Integration. "We are confident in our abilities to provide a system that meets the operational capabilities of one or more operators and will meet the demands of today and the eventual growth of tomorrow."
