THE MONCTON AVENIR CENTRE PROJECT

Ivan’s Audio-Visual supplies a state-of-the-art Audio and Video production systems.


For over 35 years Ivan’s Camera has been part of the Moncton downtown core. The Ivan’s name has been associated with cameras & photographic equipment, but most people are not aware of is our Commercial Audio & Visual division (Ivan’s AV). We have been told that we are Moncton’s best kept secret! With 19 full time AV staff at our offices in Moncton and Dartmouth, we are able to serve clients through out Atlantic Canada.

We were fortunate to partner up with Gardner Electric, Bird Construction, SMG Canada and Daktronics to supply and integrate the new state-of-the art audio and video system. This was a challenge that we welcomed and are now excided to be able to show the quality of work that we offer to our clients each and every day.


Audio System

The audio system in the main bowl consists of 10 strategically placed and tuned clusters of JBL VRX series line array speakers with 4 subwoofers to add some thump and bottom end. A total of 66 individual speakers were installed in the main bowl area. A distributed audio system was also installed throughout the facility to add audio to the washrooms, public areas, stairwells and suites. Bottom line the system really sounds great!

We also installed a wireless hearing assist system in the new facility that will have portable wireless receivers available for people requiring these devices. They are compatible with most hearing aid devices (T-Coil) or can be used with standard headphones or earbuds.


Video Production System


Ivan’s Audio Visual was also sub-contracted by the new scoreboard supplier Daktronics to provide all the production video cameras as well as the video switching and replay system for the new center hung scoreboard. The system consists of 2 Panasonic portable 4K cameras, 2 fixed goal cameras as well as 2 fully automated 4K pan-tilt-zoom cameras located under the scoreboard. The new 4 channel instant replay system will allow frame by frame slow motion replay of the action to enhance the fan experience. A large switching and distribution system were also installed to leave some room for future expandability.

In addition to the audio and video systems, we also provided the follow spot lighting fixtures for the main bowl. These fixtures will ensure that the talent will shine bright for years to come, no matter what the occasions.


Outdoor Plaza Audio System


Finally, an outdoor audio system for the plaza was also installed to provide year-round music and announcement capability to new outdoor plaza and ice rink. This area was a combined effort with Roadway Systems who provided the cabling and electrical requirements.

We are certainly pleased with the outcome and honored to have been part of this project. Ivan’s AV would like to say a special thank you to Serge Goguen the Sales Project Manager, Andrew Arsenault our AV Team Lead and the rest of the Ivan’s AV integration team for a great successful Job.
