ColosseoEAS is a leading international company based in Bratislava, Slovakia that specializes in LED design, multimedia and statistics solutions for sport venues. Our integrated system approach, introduced in 2010, allows stadium and arena owners to input all data from any source into one platform. Moreover the solution automates tasks, reduces redundant operations and distributes native information to a variety of devices like LED screens, IPTVs, advertising fasciae, mobile applications and even wearable devices. Founded in 2005 by four Bratislava entrepreneurs, Colosseo in 2007 entered an exciting field that combines the latest LED lighting technologies with sports, advertising and stadium entertainment. Additionally, Colosseo is the only company in the world to have implemented four, real-time biometric facial recognition systems to enhance stadium security; first at Slovnaft Arena in Bratislava and the other in Spis Arena (Slovakia), Krakow Arena (Poland) and Petrovsky stadium (Russia)
The company landed its first big contract when it agreed with the operational organizations of the Ice Hockey Championship IIHF to install the arena system including audio, scoreboard and security for the 2011 IIHF World Championship in the Ondrej Nepela Arena arena in Bratislava, and the Steel Aréna in Košice Slovakia. In 2012 Colosseo was chosen to supply the game presentation arena system for the Shayba Arena in Sochi, Russia for the 2014 Winter Olympics. Colosseo EAS installed the only 360 degree LED score "cube" in the US when it installed the scoreboard in the San Francisco's Cow Palace in 2012 after the Arena was rebuilt to accommodate the ECHL's San Francisco Bulls. Other major installations include Allianz Park in London, completed in 2013; the Verizon Center in Washington D.C, USA, finished also in 2013 and Krakow Arena in Poland, where Colosseo installed biggest LED media facade in Europe with more than 5000 sqm of LED surface.
With the advancement of the new technologies, FPGA and processing electronics, SMD production mechanisms -Surface-mount technology and mass production of the LED diodes, it has become financially feasible to produce screens based on LED modules placed on Printed circuit boards.
Old LED technologies had a very high maintenance cost. The pixels and LED modules had to be repaired frequently and therefore there was at least one person dedicated for maintenance and repair of the screens. Today's technology is much more reliable and does not suffer from such problems. Moreover the performance parameters have significantly improved.
