The stunning new Tottenham Hotspur Football Stadium in London has, quite rightly, drawn a lot of media attention as its state-of-the-art technology leads the way in a new era of ‘super stadia’ – and Datapath are proud to have played our part.
Designed to cater for a multitude of uses beyond football matches – the stadium is also the first NFL Stadium outside of the US, as well as the ultimate venue for concerts and conferences. With a sliding grass pitch, the single longest bar in Europe and the very latest in digital technology the North London club can now boast one of the most advanced stadiums in the world.
AV technology is at the very heart of the design of the new stadium – keeping fans engaged and informed with all the on-pitch action. Four bespoke Daktronics LED video displays – with a total length of over 1,000 square meters and over 10 meters in width – ensure everyone is kept informed of the action.
Powering the huge displays are Datapath solutions that bring power and versatility to content control. Two iolite 600 video wall processors, plus a further 40 Fx4 controllers power the wide selection of displays.
An additional two Daktronics screens were installed in the stadium’s south stand, measuring 325 square meters each. Pitch side are 10 x 12 pixel pitch, enhanced black face SMD digital signage system, totaling 354 meters in length.
There are also around 1,800 LG HDTV’s installed throughout the stadium in varying sizes, from 29-in screens to 98-in ultra-stretch screens, all based on an IP network.
Utilizing Datapath allows for total flexibility and control over content input, as well as giving the stadium further scope for future digital developments.
