Braves Select Pro Media/UltraSound for SunTrust Park Sound & AV System Build-Out
Sept 21, 2015
Martinez, CA — Pro Media/UltraSound (PM/US), national provider of live sound, video and specialty AV technologies, has been awarded the contract to outfit the MLB Atlanta Braves’ new SunTrust Park with fan-experience-enhancing music systems and AV and broadcast cable plant infrastructure. General contractor American Builders elected PM/US to implement a technology design by WJHW for the Populous-designed ballpark, which opens in April 2017.
The new ballpark will house 41,500 seats in an intimate configuration that maximizes sightlines and elevations in a three-tiered cantilevered seating bowl. It’s being touted as a sports design first, as it will anchor a 60-acre mixed-use development that includes retail shops, restaurants, an office tower, hotel, a concert venue and residential units.
