|Scotlandís national football stadium Hampden Park has installed 2 giant digiLED video screens www.digiLED.com, supported by BT, ahead of Scotland's crucial Euro 2008 qualifier against Italy. Replacing the old BT sponsored scoreboards in the East and West Stands, the digiLED d12 screens measure 9.6m x 5.4m and have an effective resolution of 768 x 432 pixels.
Key to this project was displayLEDís ability to meet tight deadlines, the digiLED screens needed to be designed, manufactured, delivered and installed in just 7 weeks. In fact, they were up and running less than 3 days after arriving on site; a week ahead of the crucial match.
Executive Director, David Kells, is delighted with the new additions to Hampden Park which will host the Commonwealth Games in 2014 following the announcement of Glasgow's success in Sri Lanka.
The digiLED system is served by graphics from the digiSPORT content engine which is also in use at Hull City's KC Stadium and Carrow Road, home of Norwich City. The digiSPORT delivers video and graphics in customised, predetermined formats, to enhance the match day experience and drive advertising revenue.
The digiSPORT software is developed for the sports environment and can cover all aspects of the dayís events, from team introduction through to final scores and can be supported by sponsorship graphics, video files or real-time RSS feeds.
Hampden Park is the first stadium in the World to use digiLED's new digiPRO HD processor enabling Hi Def TV content to be played at Hampden Park. Hampden is the first stadium in Scotland with this capability.
Both digiSPORT and digiPRO HD will be formally launched at ISE in Amsterdam at the end of January 2008.
