A Project Like No Other!
Did you know?
Matrix was contacted for the design and integration of both the Video Production Control Room and Digital Signage / IPTV System in Rogers Place arena, home of the Edmonton Oilers. We are extremely proud to have been a part of this project. Matrix’s installation window for over 1250 screens was squeezed from 14 weeks to 10. Despite this unforeseen circumstance, 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 video wall configuration. These screens offer unlimited possibilities ranging from displaying real-time live action to presenting advertisements for sponsors. This unique model required significant configuration to ensure seamless synchronization over the network throughout the entire arena.
The central equipment room consists of 18 full-height racks including Sony HD cameras, a 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 of the action.
