PGE Arena Gdansk equipped by Trias for Euro 2012

The PGE Arena in Gdansk, Poland is one of Europe’s newest and most modern sports complexes, and is now ready and waiting for the UEFA Euro 2012 Football Championships.

The stadium was equipped by Trias with technical and multimedia solutions. The company was responsible for design and integration of tele-technical systems within the scope of fixed audiovisual, lightening, safety systems and IT installations.

Designed to resemble the colour of Baltic amber, the arena can seat up to 42 000 spectators.

Trias equipped the stadium in Gdansk with 4 four Daktronics LEDscreens, with a surface area of 70 square metres each. They have been hung underneath the structure of the roof in the corners of the pitch.

The digital signage system is intended to make half-time an interesting experience. 281 professional full HD Sharp screens of 42, 47 and 52 inches were installed as a part of the system. They have been located outside and inside the stadium, along the promenades, at the catering locations, in VIP zones, in the press section as well as at the FUN Pub. On these screens fans and spectators will be able to follow not only what happens on the pitch but enjoy current match statistics, team presentations and receive other information, such as advertising and warning messages, if needed.

Content presented on the screens is managed by TriplePlay Services. This allows for the creation of numerous zones - consisting of from 1 to 100 screens, on which different visuals may be displayed. Fans who take up seats on the stands will be able to see images different from those shown to the fans along promenades or next to the catering centres. Additionally within VIP sections and in lounges it is possible to transmit standard TV programmes, from satellite or cable TV, OB Vans or those produced within the stadium’s mini-studio.

Apart from LCD screens, the Digital Signage system also includes a head station which enables reception of satellite channels and their conversion into IP streams, HD encoders to transmit TV, video and computer signals in the form of IP stream, more than 300 final end STB devices along with configuration, management and monitoring software for the whole system.

The stadium in Gdansk has one of the most modern sound systems in Europe. The stadium has been equipped with 308 JBL Professional speakers, with a total power of almost 195 KW.

75 speakers have been installed for the stands. 24 operational groups of three speakers each are hung underneath the roof of the stadium. This ensures even sound distribution across all tiers of seating. 176 speakers were installed on two levels of the promenades surrounding the stands and with 57 around and outside the stadium.

Trias’s other responsibilities included the design and execution of the central clock system, TV signal transmission system, tele-technical objects located all over the stadium (equipment of the roller course as well as special lightening system). Facilities management and parking lot management systems have also been implemented.
