Tech Stack: Europe’s largest indoor LED cube display fitted at Zurich arena

Samsung Electronics recently completed the installation of an upgraded display solution at the Swiss Life Arena in Zurich, with the project including the largest indoor LED cube in Europe.

The display solution provides revamped hardware and software, as well as technical support for arena tenants, the ZSC Lions ice hockey team. The upgrades have enabled Swiss Life Arena, which opened in October, to meet NHL standards.

Samsung is an official display technology partner of the arena and has fitted a wide range of signage products and technical solutions at the venue to enhance the customer experience and improve operational efficiency.

Samsung has installed 669 square metres of LED signage inside the 12,000-seat arena, totalling over 18 million LEDs. The central LED cube display features 416 square metres of the LED signage.

Monumental Sports and Entertainment has unveiled a series of fan features and amenities for Capital One Arena as the venue celebrates its 25th anniversary.

The 25th anniversary celebration for the arena, which serves as the home of the NBA’s Washington Wizards and the NHL’s Washington Capitals, will include a headline performance by Imagine Dragons tomorrow (Friday). The celebration will also include activations during the Wizards’ game against the LA Lakers on Sunday and the Capitals’ game against the Seattle Kraken on December 9.

Several new culinary creations are being rolled out for the celebration, and these will be supported by the latest concession technology to ensure ease of movement on the concourse.

The Drink MKT brand will use Zippin’s AI-powered technology to offer checkout-free experiences, while more touch-to-order kiosks have been installed and fans can order from their seats with Uber Eats. Other features will include touchless entry, a cashless concourse and a KultureCity sensory room.

Allianz Parque, home of Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A football team Palmeiras, has renewed an agreement with Dahua Technology, which will support the latest stage of the stadium’s technological innovation project.

The second phase of the project, which will include the installation of new monitoring and surveillance cameras, will be completed in the first quarter of 2023. Allianz Parque uses the technology to carry out analysis on the physical attributes and behaviour of guests.
