Ross Video has recently published a new case study about project on Nokia Arena, in Finland. To complete this case study, Ross Video collaborated with Broadcast Solutions Group developing a cutting-edge live production technology system for the finnish venue, which whit such a diverse range of events taking place at, it is crucial to have a production solution that can easily adapt to different requirements
Nokia Arena is a world-class sports and live entertainment center located in Tampere, Finland, and is home to both the Tampereen Ilves and Tappara of the Finnish Elite Ice Hockey League. As one of the most modern multi-purpose venues in Northern Europe, the Arena features a state-of-the-art live production technology system that is flexible enough to give in-venue operators the freedom to produce a wide variety of events with ease.
Having first opened its doors in December 2021, the Arena is set to host several high-profile international events in 2022, including the IIHF World Ice Hockey Championship, the NHL Global Series, and several world- renowned concerts. Nokia Arena is a true multi-purpose sport and live entertainment center consisting of an arena that can hold up to 15,000 spectators, a state-of-the-art hotel, an international casino, diverse event venues, and numerous restaurants.
With two major ice hockey teams playing many games during the week, plus concerts and musicals, the venue attracts a range of live events. To support these events, Broadcast Solutions Nordic was tasked with designing and implementing a live broadcast technology solution at the venue that was flexible enough to drive the fan experience for the different types of shows. From the control room and LED display control to the Arena TV system and on-ice projection system, every live production element needed to be tied together to deliver a truly immersive experience for the hockey fan or concertgoer.
When designing the in-venue broadcast technology solution that would unify these live production elements, Broadcast Solutions turned to Ross Video as the company’s wide- ranging suite of products combine to create a flexible, scalable in-venue solution that merges the traditional production control room with LED display control.
“After our initial meeting with Ross Video, it was clear that they had the technology and experience in developing complete venue solutions that would allow us to realize our vision of creating an unforgettable experience for fans attending events at Nokia Arena. I am very proud of what we have achieved with the talented team at Ross and look forward to continuing to attract-global events to Tampere”, Marko Hurme, CEO of Nokia Arena stated.
