The Challenge

An important goal of the 2015-16 upgrades was ensuring a premier fan experience. The management team at Amalie Arena wanted to make sure that everyone who came to the arena had an exciting and unforgettable time in a one-of-a-kind venue. Part of that vision was an upgrade to the fans' digital experience. The team created conceptual renderings for some mosaic-style video walls--unique artistic layouts they wanted to deploy in key points around the arena. They wanted to turn standard video walls into pieces of art to showcase stunning views of the city and other local content, all of it in 4k UHD resolution.

Unfortunately, all the solutions the team reviewed that enabled mosaic-style video walls were either too expensive or limited in their capabilities, and for a time it looked like there was a risk they wouldn't be able to complete the project.
