Sweden: As the first teams in Sweden's major ice hockey league, HV71 of Jönköping and Färjestad from Karlstad have invested in their own arenas, which are completely dedicated to ice hockey.The brand new arenas feature state-of-the-art AV solutions including a Sport Event Display, a Sportsbar and a TV studio.
Both solutions ere designed and installed by dnp's Swedish distributor, SIE Skandinaviska Industrielektronik AB, which has pioneered the sport event market with their large screen Media Cube concept.
The main display in the two ice hockey arenas is a Media Cube, which shows live broadcasting and slow-motion replays during games and breaks. The 5700 kg cube is based around four 160" dnp Giant Wide Angle Screens - each powered by two stacked Barco Graphics 9300 with a total maximum light output of 14,000 ANSI Lumens. The result is bright, high-contrast images,which provide excellent viewing from all locations in the arena. Replay and evaluation in the Sportsbar As a unique service, spectators can also follow the game while buying food and drinks in the Sportsbar, which features a 100" dnp New Wide Angle Screen.
- When the teams play away games, the game can be shown in the Sportsbar where the fans can view it without travelling all around Sweden.The Sportsbar is also used by the team. From the arena's TV studio it is possible to replay the game so that the coach can evaluate the match with the players, says Andreas Bragd of SIE.
