Back of House

The entertainment may reside in the bowl, but each guest will spend a large amount of time in the back of house. Concessions, restrooms, and souvenir shops make the back of house experience an active part of the show – it's much more than an entrance and exit. Appropriately designed back of house audio, including paging and background music, can be difficult to achieve given the architectural acoustics of the building, which is why HARMAN has an incredible range of loudspeaker options and accompanying audio processing to allow for seamless – but not lifeless – transition from the bowl to the back of house. Visitors who wait in line for concessions and souvenirs expect to stay on top of the action on the field, which is why HARMAN digital signage and video distribution solutions are ideal for streaming the action or spreading the message. HARMAN can help make the entire building part of the experience.
