The 13-year-old arena will be getting a makeover for the upcoming season — a $16 million one at that. Overall, the technological upgrades to the sound system as well as the installation of ridiculously-sized scoreboards should put the arena in the upper echelon of the country’s professional venues.
The scoreboards, which were designed by Atlanta-based ANC Sports, will include one hung above center court with two 50-foot-wide HD screens. They are scheduled to be ready for the team’s home opener against the Sacramento Kings on November 3.
The renovated fieldhouse will also feature 330 new HD flat-screen TVs on the concourse level and additional upgrades to the audio equipment that controls the arena’s scoreboards and video screens.
“In the fall, you will see a visual experience that I don’t think you will believe,” said Rick Fuson, chief operating officer of Pacers Sports & Entertainment, to the Indianapolis Business Journal of the developments in sports technology. “It’s going to be an experience you’re not quite used to.”
