We have recently had the opportunity to install arena schedule digital signage at the Don Hartman Northeast Sportsplex and Cardel Place in Calgary. For both installations, we chose PADS 3.1 Standalone from Net Display Systems of the Netherlands. The reason for our choice was the flexibility, ease of deployment and professional looking results of PADS.
One of the key features of the arena display solution is the integration with CLASS booking software. Custom front-end databases were developed to read the CLASS information and allow display-specific customizations, such as dressing room assignments and home/visitor team names. This custom data is then accessed by the PADS software and presented on the display screens. Other information, such as sports RSS feeds, custom messages, advertising and a TV tuner box are all incorporated on the high definition display.
The possibilities for custom public display systems are endless and the prices are continually dropping. Contact us for more information about creating your own public area display system.
