Inside the Largest Dedicated Esports Stadium in North America

The idea for an Esports Stadium came a few years ago, when the City of Arlington, Texas, commissioned a study to examine the popularity of esports.

“What we found is this industry is exploding,” said Deputy City Manager Of Arlington Jim Parajon.

The 100,000 square foot facility is the largest of its kind in North America. It is a turnkey solution for esport productions and events built to serve the esports community. The experience inside the stadium is meant to be immersive. When something’s happening in a game, they want the audience to feel it.

So, when they went looking for someone to do the sound, they had specific ideas.

“We really delivered one message: We needed an immersive experience from top to bottom,” said Jonathan Oudthone, President, Esports Stadium. “Whether it was video, lighting, or sound, and Infinity was able to hit the mark for us.”

The folks at Infinity Sound chose Contemporary Research for video distribution. This allowed them to use a one cable system.

“When somebody sits down, and they can actually feel the bass coming through their legs, or a huge KO goes across the screen, and the crowd starts roaring because they can feel it with the lights, they can see it, that’s what we’re really wanting to achieve,” Oudthone said.
