Coastal Carolina University HTC Convocation Center
Client: Garvin Design Group
Completion Date: 2012
Polysonics provided acoustical, broadcast video infrastructure, sound system, production lighting and rigging system design to accommodate a variety of uses, from a basketball arena, recreational gymnasium, fitness/exercise spaces, to an assembly/convocation space and performance venue. Depending on the configuration, the facility is to seat 3,600 for basketball, and increased capacity with floor seating to 4,800 when configured for entertainment.
Supporting the flexibility of the space, Polysonics provided the designs for a full-range, high performance sound system capable of providing clear, intelligible speech, with the dynamic range to reproduce sports audio programming. Further, Polysonics provided a lighting system design that is simple to use and operate, flexible and able to support a variety of presentations and able to be hoisted well out of the way when the building is serving other functions. Also, Polysonics provided infrastructure layouts and general direction and coordination for the support of broadcast operations in and about the space. Finally, Polysonics designed a distributed sound system throughout the center, including stand-alone systems in the fitness center and multi-purpose rooms, which featured local inputs for video sources, ipods and other media.
