New Krakow Arena Opens with latest Colosseo Technology!


May 12, 2014 - Krakow, Poland

Krakow’s mayor Jacek Majchrowski announced at a press conference May 12 that the new Krakow Arena would open to the public with a concert featuring the Polish premiere of all 14 Pixar productions. The hall, which has been under construction since 2011, has two separate sports halls and can accommodate up to 21,000 spectators. ColosseoEAS participated in the project, installing Europe’s largest LED strip fasciae, a 360 degree HD video cube, Colosseo’s third generation 16-channel Director HD, biometric entrance turnstiles and the ticketing system. The hall has been built to accommodate different sports, ice hockey, volleyball and basketball and can also host cultural events. Parking space is available for almost 1350 cars.

Krakow contracted Colosseo to build Europe’s largest LED fasciae on the latticework of the arena as well as the HD video cube in the main hall and second-generation facial recognitions biometric turnstiles that are integrated with the Colosseo’s ticketing system.

Colosseo mounted aluminum stays to the latticework façade and attached 5100 square meters of LED media façade screen. Where the LED screen has the highest resolution, just over the main entrance to the arena, a 54-meter by 10-meter “screen” is located. Complete LED media façade is controlled by Colosseo’s Director HD, the same system that controls Colosseo’s full HD 360 degree video cube inside the stadium.

On June 20 Brazil’s national volleyball team will take on the Polish national side.
