Harbor Park

For many years, 150 Park Ave in Downtown Norfolk has been known only as the home to thousands of baseball fans cheering on the Norfolk Tides at Harbor Park but recently the city of Norfolk introduced an exciting expansion to the Harbor Park facility, The Norfolk Boxing Center. This state-of-the-art facility is 13,000 square feet and boasts two USA Boxing regulation-sized competition rings with stadium style seating with a well-equipped gym and fitness classes. It’s not just boxing that makes this facility so unique, the city knew they needed the right technology for the space and they chose Vicom to provide the solution.

Two high definition cameras capture the action in the boxing ring

Two high definition cameras capture the action in the boxing ring and the video is routed to multiple Samsung displays within the arena via a Crestron AV distribution system. Content shown on the displays is controlled by a video switcher that is housed in a roll-top desk that can be locked and stored when not in use. The entire system is controlled via a Crestron touch panel within the roll-top. While the system itself is high in quality, it’s extremely simple to use and the process of getting it connected and running for an event was intentionally designed to be both straightforward and intuitive to operate.

Additionally, there are Samsung displays throughout the facility including the classroom, the lobby, the coach’s office, the staff lounge and more.

This impressive facility paired with this technology allows the city of Norfolk to offer a unique boxing program for local residents that introduces both life skills and scholastic support. The city is very proud of the boxing center and Vicom was honored to be included in the process and to provide a technology solution that’s up to par with the high standard of excellence displayed throughout the entire facility.
