IMS: ARLEN SPECTER
U.S. SQUASH CENTER
BROADCAST SYSTEM
The dream of a national
center for squash had been
envisioned for decades,
and with the help of IMS
that vision was realized.
By Jonathan Blackwood
SINCE 2011, the Event Staging division of
IMS has been performing live event services
and production for US Squash.
Now in 2021, the center's 65,000 square
feet is a state-of-the-art athletic facility. The
third level is home to the AV/IT head-end,
control room, and open staging area for
live event production and management.
The AV technologies required to capture,
distribute and support worldwide
streaming from all for twenty squash courts
for more than twelve hours a day rely on a
sophisticated SDVoE network.
All 20 courts are able to support
multiple cameras, court ambient audio,
and referee microphone audio along with
instantaneous embedding of scoring in the
lower-thirds prior to capture and streaming.
Each primary camera feed, inclusive of
the embedded audio, is routed through the
64 x 64 SDI matrix and routed into a Coolux
Live court action and auxiliary video can simultaneously be distributed around the
facility to more than 40 monitors, sized from 43 inches diagonal up to 100 inches.
embedding and streaming system.
The Coolux processing system receives
a court specific HTML from US Squash's
scoring and sports management system,
CLUBLOCKER, which overlays the feed into
the court's primary camera signal and out
to YouTube for live viewing, to a Haivision
HMP capture system, and back into the 64
x 64 SDI matrix router for internal delivery
around the facility.
Live court action and auxiliary video can
simultaneously be distributed around the
facility to more than 40 monitors, sized
from 43-inches diagonal up to 100-inches
while utilizing frame accurate switching
allowing no discernable latency between a
live court view and display rendered action.
Dante audio using Q-SYS DSP features 68
input channels feeding the capture system
as well as up to 110 speakers throughout
the center's eight spectator zones as well as
the locker rooms, Physio, classrooms and
coaches' center on the two main levels.
Any court audio mix along with all of the
systems multiple wireless microphones

can be routed to any area within the space.
The level 4 control room features auxiliary
connections for on-demand live event production
via front-of-house mixing consoles.
IMS's software programmers customized
a robust but easy-to-use control system that
provides management of all aspects of daily
AV operations with simple Q-SYS touch
panels and iPads.
The center and its technology systems
have created the opportunity for the U.S. to
have a place to call home for their sport and
to draw international attention.
