Esports Arena Las Vegas is a 30,000-square-foot multi-level arena with a competition stage, telescopic seating, daily gaming stations, VIP room, two bars, and state-of-the-art streaming and production studios. The facility also features an interactive area known as the “History of Gaming Dome” that includes retro games, a gaming chandelier and a front lobby equipped with gaming stations, a streaming booth, and a retail/merchandise area.
In order to provide a world-class audiovisual experience at the new arena, Allied Esports formed a partnership with HARMAN Professional Solutions to provide a custom audio, lighting, and control solution made up of JBL Professional loudspeakers, Crown amplifiers, BSS audio processors, AMX control systems and Martin lighting fixtures.
