As home to a vibrant program of commissioned new work, touring productions, and event space for the University of Iowa, the new Hancher Auditorium establishes a high bar for the support of a new generation of performers.

Threshold designed the AV systems in close collaboration with an experienced and discerning owner. Capabilities of these systems align with a distinctive set of requirements that include outstanding audio quality and integrated video systems in the 1,800-seat venue, distribution for HD video recording, and audio and video production systems. Portable systems allow a rehearsal space to serve as an experimental theatre and bring AV into the public spaces as well.
