Challenge

The old scoreboard inside the modernized ice arena of the Swiss ice-hockey club EHC Olten shall be pepped up by a state-of-the-art LED video cube. Underneath the media cube a digital advertising banner shall provide a higher marketing potential. However, the required construction and electronic components must be as light as possible due to the low bearing capacity of the arena’s roof.

Solution

At first we mounted the circumferential 23 m long LED banner and a fixed banner onto a precision frame made of aluminum. Subsequently the four sides of the video cube were mounted inclined slightly forwards. To achieve an optimal resolution and according to the current standards for ice-hockey arenas we have chosen S[quadrat] SI [6 SMD] NT Light LED modules and arranged them in a 16:9 ratio. Just before we cladded the entire LED video system, the existing scoreboard and another fixed banner were integrated into the aluminum frame above the video cube. The total weight of the whole construct is now approx. 8 tons.The LED video cube and the LED banner are controlled by our customized content management System SX [SportBox]. This enables our client to present the players visualized, show animations for game events like goals, time-outs or fouls, further game information and in-game media like advertising.
