Entering a stadium for the first time is a precious memory for many sports fans. Whether you’re taking a break from the work day or planning a family outing, sports offer a whole realm of comradery and bonding between die-hard fans. As sports-lovers eagerly anticipate the return of live sporting events and for the day they can come back to stadiums, HARMAN is passionately working to enhance your stadium experience by outfitting stadiums around the world with the best sound system from our signature professional audio brand, JBL Professional.
By partnering with JBL Professional, well-renowned sporting arenas across the globe such as HyperX (Allied) Esports, SoFi, Allegiant, Tottenham, Yangpyeong, and Ulsan use state-of-the-art professional audio systems that will continued to be enjoyed by thousands of fans from around the world. Once sporting fans are ready to return to their favorite venues, these new and powerful audio systems will be prepared to bring fans that unique and enriching live event experience they rightly deserve.
Never Miss a Beat of the Action
Brand new SoFi Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers NFL teams, recently unveiled a 70,000 square foot videoboard from Samsung, which has been enhanced with the impeccable sound system comprised of JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown amplification and BSS digital signal processing technology. Along with the videoboard, our JBL Professional loudspeakers will be used all throughout the stadium, so even if you step away to grab a snack and refreshments, you’ll never miss a piece of the action. These powerful integrations ensures each fan can take in every visual aspect of the action, in addition to live music performances, important announcements, on-field ceremonies and entertaining video replays and packages. Every sight and sound will be magnified to new levels thanks to the state-of-the-art audio technology from the JBL Professional team.
New-build stadiums like Allegiant, home of the Las Vegas Raiders NFL team, and Tottenham too installed new systems, identifying JBL Professional’s revolutionary audio technology and exceptional sound intelligibility as a key component necessary for their critical sound. English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur sought a dynamic audio experience to complement their newly constructed 62,000 capacity stadium. A reason they identified JBL Professional as the best audio solution was that “JBL is a name that’s synonymous globally – consumers understand who they are and understand that when you see a product with that name on it, it comes with best-in-class quality,” as Fran Jones, Head of Partnerships for Tottenham Hotspur recently said. JBL’s state-of-the-art audio devices can keep you locked into the action wherever you sit.
Though NBA arenas are empty where JBL Professional is installed, like the Milwaukee Bucks in the Fiserv Forum, the Golden State Warriors in the Chase Center, and the Los Angeles Lakers in the Staples Center, JBL Professional loudspeakers are on hand at the NBA “Bubble” to provide sound reinforcement for the remainder of the NBA regular season and playoffs. With JBL audio in each of the game venues at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World, the loudspeakers have ensured a high degree of intelligibility for commentary, court audio and music.
Bringing Powerful Fan Experiences to South Korea
HARMAN’s legendary sound has helped extend its global impact, providing stadiums in South Korea, including Ulsan and Yangpyeong, with excellent professional audio products that can withstand the dangers of wind, rain and a winter climate. “Yangpyeong Stadium needed audio solutions that could withstand the wear-and-tear factors associated with harsh climate conditions while delivering the coverage and clarity required in a professional sports facility,” said Ramesh Jayaraman, Vice President and General Manager APAC, Harman Professional Solutions. Your favorite teams are expected to play in all kinds of weather, so it’s important that no piece of the action is missed while you cheer the athletes on. HARMAN in tandem with our leading audio brand, JBL, is actively designing smart audio that can withstand the constantly shifting outdoor environment. Sports venues and fans expect the best and HARMAN ensures your sound delivers and executes reliable, durable audio with a safe and easy-to-use setup.
Captivating Sound for Every Athlete
Esports has skyrocketed in the past few years, particularly as live-action sporting events have been postponed. HARMAN and JBL Professional understand that powerful audio can make the difference between victory and defeat, and the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas is designed to offer the best-in-class sound for the top gamers and Esports athletes in the industry. HARMAN has created a gold standard for quality, professional audio in competitive gaming arenas. With powerful audio, visual, lighting and control solutions that provides gamers and fans with unparalleled experiences, HARMAN Professional Solutions is best positioned to lead the space as Esports further dominates the future of live and competitive events.
JBL loudspeakers, fitted throughout the arena, offer premium sound quality and control, immersing gamers into action and paving the way for new standard for competitive gaming and entertainment.
“Sporting venues are driving advancements in large-scale audio and visual integrations that require the latest technology to enhance the fan experience,” said Brian Divine, President of Professional Solutions at HARMAN. As large-format video LED delivers visual clarity that fans enjoy at home, the sound systems need to match or exceed that quality, otherwise the experience is incomplete. JBL is a sought-after brand for these stadiums and arenas because that quality and reliability is critical for delivering the best for fans.”
HARMAN is constantly striving to create best-in-class sound that can pierce through any environmental interference that teams may experience. As many venues await the day that live sporting events are back in action, HARMAN is helping design and bring top-of-the-line professional audio systems to stadiums around the globe so that they can bring their signature sound to every game and make every play one that cuts through the roars of the crowd. Sporting events and tailgates are a unique bonding experience for many and HARMAN is committed to making each and every one of these moments a treasured memory for stadium-goers. Eager sports fans of all kinds will be able to make brand new memories once these stadiums across the globe reopen, inviting audiences to share in the victories, revelry and never miss a beat of the action.
