As part of the contract, VSG will install SMPTE fiber to nine camera areas within the arena that are similar to runs the company has completed at the Fleet Center and Fenway Park in Boston, MA.
VSG will provide full system design and integration. Work is scheduled for completion in August in time for the start of the 2004-05 NHL season.
