The challenges involved in devising IP-based infrastructures to support flexible routing of audio, video and data in modern stadiums will be the subject of a key panel session at SVG Europe’s Sports Venue and Fan Engagement Summit. A co-production with PanStadia & Arena Management, the summit will take place at the Amsterdam RAI during ISE on 8 February.

Ask any integrator or consultant to identify the most important single element of the contemporary stadium and there is a very good chance that they will confirm that ‘it’s all about the network’.

Designing and building networks that can cope with the expectations of today, as well as support expansion for those of tomorrow, is no small challenge, and has been an abiding preoccupation at most landmark venues constructed over the last few years. This closing panel of the day will consider whether there is any such thing as a standard network topology at a modern stadium, and identify the design approaches and techniques that can result in a truly futureproofed venue.

Joining the moderator, RH Consulting Founder/Consultant Roland Hemming, will be: Andreas Hildebrand, ALC NetworX, Senior Product Manager and Evangelist; John Smith, Media Links EMEA, Managing Director; and Will Waters, NewTek, Senior Director IP Workflow Strategy.

The Sports Venue and Fan Engagement Summit is open to all, but delegates must also register for the ISE show itself. For a full programme and registration details please visit https://www.svgeurope.org/sports-venue-fan-engagement-2018/.
