L-Acoustics K, A, and X Series Bring Clarity to the Spoken Word at BYU-Idaho Center

The BYU-Idaho Center, on the western edge of Brigham Young University-Idaho’s Rexburg campus, is an architectural marvel. Dedicated in December 2010 after three years of construction, the “I-Center” is a 435,000-square-foot facility combining two distinct gathering places: a large athletics center equipped with ten multi-use sporting courts and a 15,000-seat auditorium used for student devotionals, ecclesiastical meetings, graduation exercises, and select artistic and cultural events. Recently, the auditorium became more intimate sounding when an L-Acoustics loudspeaker system was installed by Clearwing Systems Integration.

The fan-shaped venue with its 7,500-square-foot stage is one of the largest production theaters in North America, offering only 6,000 fewer seats than its sister facility, the LDS Conference Center at Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Familiar with L-Acoustics loudspeakers installed at other LDS facilities—including the Conference Center, Salt Lake Temple, and Provo’s BYU Marriott Center—BYU-Idaho called on L-Acoustics House of Worship Application Manager Josh Maichele to conduct a product demo in its auditorium. L-Acoustics Certified Provider (CPi) Clearwing Systems Integration had both the inventory and available personnel to assist and was committed to investing the time to fine-tune the demo system to ensure that it would be optimized for the space.

When the fastest swimmers in the United States met last month at CHI Health Center Omaha to determine who would go on to Tokyo, Riedel’s Artist and Bolero intercom systems helped Dodd Technologies orchestrate the event for broadcast and streaming to fans around the world. The Riedel systems provided flexible, reliable communications throughout the swim trials, which ran from June 4-20, as Dodd managed the in-house show and addressed the requirements of its broadcast partners and supporting production trucks.

“We needed a flexible intercom system that was both easy to use and extremely advanced, and Riedel met all those requirements,” said Caleb Cassler, Audio Systems Engineer at Dodd Technologies. “The Artist and Bolero systems handled the immense quantity of signals involved in production while providing better range than other solutions, without as many antennas. Any other solution would have been much more complicated, but the Riedel gear kept comms flexible and manageable without dedicating a role solely to comms.”
