Jyske Bank Boxen Arena, Denmark

The Opportunity:

The Jyske Bank Boxen is a 15,000-seat indoor arena that hosts sporting events such as ice hockey and basketball, as well as concert events with international artists. Jyske Bank Boxen is part of the MCH Messecenter Herning exhibition center in Herning, Denmark. In preparation for the 2018 International Ice Hockey Foundation (IIHF) World Championships, the MCH Messecenter Herning opened a new visitor foyer, featuring a dynamic façade designed to direct visitors to the arena, exhibition halls and other areas of the complex.

The Solution:

MCH Group recently installed a complete audio and lighting solution from HARMAN Professional Solutions. The Martin fixtures provide a smooth and consistent color for each triangle, leveraging the superior premixed color of the Martin Exterior QUAD fixtures. Each fixture is controllable, designed to allow the look of the façade to be adjusted to match the event going on in the arena.

Inside the new foyer, a complete HARMAN audio solution provides flexible control of the high-quality, high SPL sound system. The solution features JBL Control Series ceiling speakers along with CBT and Intellivox column speakers, providing consistent coverage throughout the facility. The installation in the new foyer connects to JBL speakers located throughout the existing facility. The entire system is connected by a BSS Soundweb audio network for audio processing capabilities, and is powered by Crown CDi Series amplifiers.

The Impact:

“We are very pleased with the overall result and how the Martin lighting transforms the building into an exciting environment, perfect to build up the right atmosphere for our customers coming to a new arena concert or large sports event,” explains Gehling. “Already, when people arrive from the highway, our façade is highly visible and people start looking forward to a great night.”

Karsten Ørkild, Project Manager at system integrator Lydrommet explains, “The end customer wanted a system that was able to deliver high quality, entertainment-ready sound at a high sound pressure. Thanks to BSS Soundweb, which connects the entire facility, local technicians can configure the system to fit any type of event. We are happy to have worked with HARMAN to deliver a system design and software programming that provides a flexible, reliable and future proof audio system.”
