Enhancing the Student Experience at Trine University


Trine University, located in Angola, Indiana, is a private, non-profit, post-secondary university. Tasked with finding a qualified and respected systems integrator, Trine needed a partner that could help design and install equipment for two new integral facilities on campus. The first facility, Thunder Ice Arena, is a NCAA and ADA-compliant ice rink. The arena needed a cost-effective and high-quality sound system and remote streaming capabilities for the newly built space. The second facility, the MTI Center, is a 74,840 square-foot athletic and event center. Home to men’s and women’s basketball, bowling and E-sports, the facility also houses a fitness center, golf pro shop, banquet room, training room, Athletic Hall of Fame, and an alumni suite. Each facility required customized solutions.


To secure a systems integrator partner to help design and install equipment that was both cost-effective and high-quality for two integral, multi-faceted facilities on campus, without compromising initial thought and design.


The college selected New Era Technology to design and implement integrated solutions consisting of an Arena Sound System for Thunder Ice Arena and AV Solutions and live streaming for the MTI Center, two significant facilities on campus, all within a limited timeframe. The systems provided in the facilities help bring to life what has become a student and community-driven space for years to come.
“To have a live streaming system so thoughtfully designed that it becomes intuitive for any user to control it is remarkable. New Era took our vision and designed a system that has created real-world experiences for our students. It’s been a huge success story on campus, and it runs on the backbone of the design and expertise.”
