Adelaide Entertainment Centre transforms into new home for NBL’s 36ers

Adelaide Entertainment Centre transforms into new home for NBL’s 36ers
September 17, 2019

With the Adelaide 36ers set to play their first NBL home game at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Saturday 19th October, the venue is currently being adapted as a new home for basketball in the South Australian capital.

Key to the transformation is the installation of a giant LED Video Cube ahead of the 2019/20 NBL season, with the centrepiece of the Adelaide Entertainment Centre’s new game day experience, ‘The Cube’ featuring the highest resolution screens of any NBL venue in Australia.

Custom designed and built in South Australia by Aurora Signage and ProAV Solutions, The Cube combines four giant 4K high‐definition LED video replay screens with an interactive, state‐of‐the‐art scoreboard system to provide fans with a spectacular visual experience.

Phil King, General Manager of the Adelaide Entertainment Centre explains “since the announcement in March that the Adelaide 36ers shall be calling the Adelaide Entertainment Centre home, we’ve been working closely with the Sixers to ensure that we not only deliver premium facilities for players, but also a market‐leading game day experience for their fans.

“The Cube … will play a central role in helping us take the basketball experience in Adelaide to a whole new level.

“Sixers’ fans are going to be blown away when they walk into their new home and see how The Cube fills the venue.”

Measuring 28 metres around its perimeter and weighing eight tonnes, The Cube’s four primary screens stretch 5 metres x 4 metre each, while another four 2 metre x 4 metre screens (positioned as corner displays) will feature player stats.

It took more than four months to engineer, design and install The Cube.

The Adelaide 36ers’ first game at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre will be a pre‐season clash against Melbourne United on Friday 27th September, followed by their first home game of the official NBL season on Saturday 19th October against the Brisbane Bullets.
