Mobilize Your Fans with Stadium Noise Monitoring

Accurate Real-Time Noise Monitoring System

Stadium noise monitoringAs venues continue to compete with the ever improving home viewing experience, providing fans with feedback about real stadium noise levels has many benefits:

  • Ensure Fan Engagement – Fans want to be part of the game. A powerful fan experience is essential to pulling spectators away from their home viewing options and to the game itself. Using noise to involve the crowd creates an emotional connection that drives engagement and sales.
  • Drive the Crowd Noise – Accurate scoreboard displays allow direct control of when fans get louder - for example, cheering for the home team’s defense on a 3rd down - or get quieter - to allow the home team’s offense to communicate before a play. Help drive the participation you’re looking for with real-time noise levels displayed in a fresh way.
  • Deliver on the Home Field Advantage – Recent history has shown that teams with a loud home stadium have a distinct competitive advantage.
  • Sponsored Displays – By presenting real data, the levels can be displayed more often and more confidently. This provides more revenue options from sponsors.
  • Protect the Integrity of the Game – Don’t mislead fans with fake meters. Show real measurements. Today’s tech-savvy fans expect it!
  • Create Marketing that Works – Marketing campaigns driven by stadium noise levels are powerful. Study crowd reaction to game events and sponsored activities.
