Pinnacle Bank Arena is packed with state of the art technology that includes 100 surveillance cameras and 2 million feet of cable equal to 378 miles. The cables are for the cameras, internet, phones, and televisions.
Director of Operations IJ Rosenblum says these cables also help run the four beer coolers that are at a constant 36 degrees. One of the cables runs CO2.
“Centralizing it [beer cooler], we use less kegs and less CO2,” said Rosenblum.
Besides the sheer size of the jumbo tron score board, the technology is impressive. Workers assemble it on site, one 12x12 panel at a time.
“If there are problems with it pixelating, we can take one panel off and put in a replacement,” said Rosenblum.
The public is not allowed in the main kitchen, which has 24 burners and eight ovens and can feed a banquet of 1,500 people.
Another cool fact, the arena makes its own disinfectant and sanitizer. It has a machine that ionizes the water and adds minerals. Rosenblum says it’s supposed to be better for the environment than regular store-bought products.
