video technology in McKenzie Arena is an important step in our efforts to
modernize the facility and enhance the event experience for the participants

administrators, members of the community, and partnerships with innovative
companies such as Daktronics and Sony. We hope that this will be the first of
many improvements as we prepare for the next great era of Chattanooga
Athletics.”
