In 2019, Red Deer College expanded upon its distinguished sports history by hosting the 2019 Canada Winter Games.

However, putting on such a prestigious event requires a world-class facility…

… we were up to the challenge.

digital EDGE is proud to have worked alongside Red Deer College and Comtec Associates to deliver a robust AV system capable of supporting a variety of sports, while also delivering an exhilarating experience to the audience.

Seriously, this setup is one of the coolest things we’ve done:

Two 17 foot wide LED walls hang in the college’s gymnasium, equipped with custom scorekeeping software and media playback for instant-replays, advertising, and communicating important messages.

There are four locations where it is possible to control these media walls—an essential feature given that some sports require the gym to be set up in entirely different configurations.

Did we mention how simple it is to control the system?

Using AMX control touchscreens and IP video systems, you can switch between your installed presets and adjust sources and volume for your space. The system is so intuitive that anyone can easily use it without having any prior experience

Community R-Series Loudspeakers and I-Series Subwoofers comprise the gym audio system, providing intelligibility, clarity, and high-fidelity sound—a rare find in a gymnasium environment.

Since Red Deer College’s arena can come apart entirely to switch from an Olympic-sized facility to a hybrid, it requires an AV system that can adjust to meet these specifications.

Our system accommodates that.

The AV system can move 10 feet forward without hassle, giving Red Deer College the flexibility they need to support a number of sports programs.

An AMX touchscreen control at the fitness services desk controls the AV system in the recreation center.

A simple touch can control background music, manage audio and video sources, and integrate paging in the squash courts, yoga studio, and drop-in spaces.

Everything from the floor installations, glass, lighting, and green initiatives play a hand in making Red Deer College a top of the line facility. With our AV system, they can also add effective communication and the ability to host a variety of sports functions.
