Allen Fieldhouse, the home of the University of Kansas Jayhawks basketball team, is getting a couple of big technological upgrades in preparation for the 2012 season. The biggest improvement will be a high definition video board in the arena, while they will also be getting a new Rock Chalk Video control room which will be upgraded to HD capability to match the board.

The control room will be more like what can be found at Memorial Stadium, with tons of new equipment compared to the old room:

The new control room will feature five HD studio cameras, a production switcher, an audio and video routing switcher with integrated multi-image viewers, an 8-channel slow-motion system, a dual channel clip server, a character generator and playback/recording equipment.

The new video board is currently being installed and is expected to be completed by Oct. 8, giving plenty of time to spare before the NCAA Basketball season begins later in the year.
