ISU Basketball Goes High Tech

March 12, 2013

The heartland takes its sports seriously, so when Iowa State University decided to build a new, 36,000 square foot, $8 million basketball practice facility, consolidating and simplifying all audio, video and control systems into one easy-to-use solution was at the top of their “must-haves.”

Despite offering a building large enough to hold both the men’s and women’s organizations, ISU also wanted an automation system that attracted potential recruits. In addition to 24-hour access to the courts, athletes enjoy the 65-inch HDTVs, iPod docks, Playstation 3s, and Nintendo Wiis in both the men’s and women’s lounges. Athletes can manage the multiple systems using either a Control4 remote or in-wall touch screen and staff members have remote monitoring access for security and maintenance capabilities.

Oh, but that’s not all… there’s much more. Did we mention the 133’’ screen in the auditorium? Check out the rest of the project and photos here: Iowa State Basketball Facility
