The past week the Amsterdam ArenA was the staging ground of the IOT HACKATHON 2018. Data- and technologyspecialist worked on crowdmanagement challenges. Students and companies were also present to create innovative concepts.
Video overview of our 2020 summit:
During the 2020 Innovation Summit in the Amsterdam ArenA on February 8 2018, d&b audio, Philips Lighting and Panasonic showcased Stadium Size Entertainment Technology. Business professionals, amongst others representatives from the cities and stadiums hosting matches during the UEFA European Championships in 2020, were invited to see the latest standard in lighting, sound and projection. It proved to be a spectacular lightshow that showed what we can look forward to the next couple of years in stadiums around the world.
The LED floodlighting system by Philips meets the highest possible standard in football stadia, making it possible to dim as to create a totally different atmosphere. Superb sound by d&b utilizes ArrayProcessing to optimize tonal and level performance over the entire listening area. The laser projection by Panasonic makes it possible to use different types of projection in a venue like the Amsterdam ArenA, that seats 54.000, even in daylight. That way, the stadium can instantly change into a theater.

Data quality remains a point of attention for many organisations. Big data analysis requires data governance. The Amsterdam Innovation Arena has a platform on which a wide range of data is stored. Nick Martijn (KPMG) told how Data Governance is handled.
During this Powering the Future-session, special attention will be given to innovation in three areas: energy transition and storage, playing field and stadium-sized show tooling such as lights. Examples range from using old batteries for energy storage, installing sensors to measure pitch quality, to installing the latest in lighting technology to serve television audiences and local audience alike.
