A spectacular lightshow at the 2020 Innovation Summit in the Amsterdam ArenA

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.
