Colosseo technology lights up Bratislava stadium

The new Tehelne Pole national football stadium in the Slovak capital city of Bratislava has been kitted out with a comprehensive technology package from Colosseo.

This ultra-modern multipurpose stadium with a capacity of 22,500 seats is UEFA Category 4 compliant and due to the installation of the latest generation Colosseo Biometric Access Control System, that covers all 78 entry-points, has also become one of the safest venues in Europe.

Colosseo fitted the stadium with a complete, custom-designed LED display inventory, starting with two giant Colosseo Vision LED displays 12 x 5m (39×16 ft) with 10mm line spacing SMD technology, followed by ultra slim LED ribbon boards with 10 mm line spacing and UEFA compliant LED perimeter boards with 12mm line spacing.

All Colosseo Vision LED displays provide not only imagery with great contrast, clarity and colour depth but also extensive digital space for sponsors, game presentation, score, statistics, dynamic or live content thanks to the capability of variable content zoning.

Elevating the fan experience even further, Colosseo supplied its leading stadia Interactive IPTV / Digital signage solution as over 400 TV panels fitted with the Colosseo IPTV app, including 86 for VIP lounges were installed across the venue.

This forms a huge internal stadia TV circuit with dynamic and interactive content including multi-angle highlights.

Content on each TV panel can be controlled independently and provides fans or VIP guests with a multitude of attractive content including highlights, replays, player & club information, statistics or various TV channels.

The brain of the whole stadium and master of all digital content is the traditionally market leading Colosseo Single Media Platform (Colosseo SMP) that processes all live video feeds, creates instant replays/highlights, trigger customised animations, social networks or live social games like Kiss Cam or Dance Cam.

While controlling advanced advertisement management along with audio and dynamic sport LED lights control, Colosseo provides fans with an unrivalled game show experience, engagement and infotainment.

The ticketing system accompanied with 13 self-service POS terminals with visualisation of individual sectors was also added.

All stadia shops and buffets were equipped with Colosseo cashless payment systems and thanks to integration with the ticketing system, the special season tickets can now be used as an electronic wallet with prepaid credit to purchase anything at in-venue outlets.

The new national football stadium has undoubtably became a smart stadium and technologically the most advanced multipurpose venue in the Central Europe region thanks to a complete and fully integrated turnkey solution based on reliable and ultra-speed IP infrastructure.

With maximised game day experience and safety for fans in mind, Colosseo brings pride, satisfaction and fast ROI for venue owners.
