Wiring, Wiring And More Wiring
Cable wiring (video, audio, fiber optic, coaxial, triax) is critical for network television broadcast and a wide variety of networks throughout the stadium. A renovated Lambeau Field technology infrastructure has made it dramatically easier for broadcast of big games from the stadium. Before the state-of-the-art cable infrastructure was laid in 2003, network television had to run multiple cables to the network broadcast trucks for each camera. The Packers have more than one million feet of phone and data cabling. "We have literally miles of cable infrastructure in this building," said Wichlacz of the stadium. "Before, it was an arduous task to get everything set up for game day for the networks. Now it is much easier for the networks." The Packers have approximately 15 people to support broadcast television on game day.
