Multimedia Journalism Summer Academy Tours Golden 1 Center
High school students in Sac State’s Multimedia Journalism Summer Academy donned hardhats, safety goggles and vests as they toured the future home of the Sacramento Kings, the Golden 1 Center, billed as the most technologically advanced arena in the NBA.
The Golden 1 Center will house the NBA’s largest scoreboard, a piece of equipment that will extend from one free throw line to the other, says Brian Plumb, who heads the Kings multimedia unit. And when fans are not glued to the game, the scoreboard or one of the 800 TV monitors in and around the arena, they can post 500-thousand photos per minute on Snapchat,” says Scott Monaco, another member of the Kings’ technology team.
