Sydney, Australia, 30th October 2015 – ALLIANZ Stadium is Australia’s most high-tech sporting venue, boasting a cutting edge media server solution that integrates the ground’s 277m2 super-screens with its extensive digital assets, including its LED ribbon board and 1200-screen IPTV networks.
The Sydney Cricket & Sports Ground Trust selected the UK’s 7thSense Design to provide their media server solution as part of a landmark technology upgrade to Allianz Stadium in Moore Park, Sydney.
Systems integrator Techtel was successful in its bid for the Allianz Stadium control room upgrade project and was later selected to supply and install the 7thSense® Delta Infinity II Media Server to feed the high definition LED video boards at the north and south ends of the stadium. 7thSense systems also serve LED displays located at the pitch and along the terrace barriers throughout the stadium, used to offer unrivalled digital fan engagement and match-day experience as well as advertising and sponsorship branding.
The Delta Infinity II solution at Allianz provides 4 SDI in and 4 SDI out channels which deliver content to the stadium LED screens. The single device solution means all video overlays are simultaneous and allows for independent synchronisation of outputs to compensate for any downstream delay.
Delta Infinity II integrates with Cisco’s StadiumVision, the innovative video and digital content distribution solution used at Allianz Stadium to centrally manage and target delivery of customised content to any combination of monitors throughout the venue. Delta Infinity II can trigger the playback of predefined content – such as a goal or try – on the 1200 StadiumVision connected screens in the venue to match the SDI output overlay shown on the large scale stadium screens.
The Delta WebService interface from 7thSense has also played an important role in the newly upgraded control room, providing a fully customisable web-based control to manage the media server. As NSW’s favourite place to watch rugby league, union and football, WebService provides Allianz Stadium with simple, flexible control over the team branding that is displayed when an operator triggers various events during the match.
Allianz Stadium’s self-funded $20 million upgrade was successfully completed in March 2015 and boasts two giant high-definition superscreens, free wi-fi and a 1200-screen IPTV network.
