A Project Like No Other!
Did you know?
The Edmonton Oilers embarked on the Rogers Place era with the NHL’s largest videowall, and we were proud to have been a part of this project. The state-of-the-art video production facility was designed and installed by Matrix Video Communications, simultaneously with the Digital Signage/IPTV system. Matrix's installation window for over 1250 screens was squeezed from 14 weeks to 10, and our dynamic team completed the job on time, bringing the Rogers Place arena to life with full functionality.
The main and upper concourses have over 200 screens in a 1X3 videowall configuration. These screens offer two separate advertising opportunities or real-time live action of the event. This unique model required significant configuration to ensure seamless synchronization happens over the network throughout the entire arena.
The central equipment room consists of 18 full-height racks; including Sony HD cameras, Pandora’s Box for the extraordinary on-ice projection, and a custom designed Blackcam track-camera that is under-mounted on the huge center-hung scoreboard. The camera is on an 11-meter track and can travel up to 4 meters per second, ensuring the guests don’t miss a moment.
