Harlequins upscale video technology at The Stoop

English Premiership rugby club Harlequins has teamed up with Philips Professional Display Solutions to boost video display capabilities at their stadium in South West London.

The three-year partnership sees the installation of a range of state-of-the-art digital signage and professional TV screens throughout The Stoop, in addition to five impressive videowalls and a number of large format screens in the bar and lounge areas.

Each of the club’s corporate boxes will now boast a cutting-edge MediaSuite 4K UHD TV, with displays also being installed into the reception areas and Media Centre, as well as in the changing and treatment spaces.

Harlequins’ commercial director Alex Goldschmidt said:

We are delighted that Philips has come on board as our Official Display Supplier. The delivery of an outstanding match day experience for fans remains at the forefront of our minds and the new range of high-definition screens will integrate state-of-the-art technology into our already iconic Home, enhancing the experience for all who come to The Stoop.

We are excited to be working closely with Philips as we continue to modernise and enhance our Home, through the provision of best-in-class facilities across both our matchday and non-matchday offerings.

Martin Ware, the UK sales director at Philips Professional Display Solutions added:

This is an exciting partnership for us at Philips Professional Display Solutions, allowing us to deliver the power of our solutions to bring a new strength to the Twickenham Stoop.

The stadium offers us the opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of the Philips Signage and Pro TV line up, with a club that has real synergy with our own brand values and the passion we have both had, for well over a century, for innovating in our fields and making a difference that extends into the future.
