CEI to Retool NASCAR’s HD Garage
NASCAR Media Group gave its keys to Communications Engineering (CEI) to integrate and build a new HD production facility in downtown Charlotte, NC.
The production center—part of the new NASCAR Plaza and NASCAR Hall of Fame, currently under construction—will occupy 100,000 square feet of two adjoining buildings and contains control rooms, a studio, editing suites, an audio-sweetening room, archiving, and a digital MATV system. It will also feature a 24/7 news center to service media and news organizations.
The project is scheduled to be completed in phases between the fourth quarter of 2009 and the first quarter of 2010, just ahead of the official opening of the NASCAR HALL of Fame in May 2010.
