The Harwall Arena in Finland recently went through a modernization program that included 240 new displays located around the facility, all intended to raise the fan experience.

The screens were put in and are now managed by local solutions partner iConnect, using ComQi’s EnGage platform on 60 media players. The displays include several video walls, screens located in the bars, walkways and hospitality suites. The content features promotions for upcoming events, food and beverage offers, and live footage streamed to all screens direct from the arena’s broadcast studios.

“We are proud to deliver one of the single largest 2014 deployments of digital signage in Finland,” says Henri Sarin, CEO of iConnect, in a ComQi press release. “With very little time, we managed to complete the installation before the start of the hockey season through close cooperation with ComQi during the process. The competition to secure this business was tough, but ultimately we were chosen because of our content management services and ComQi’s technical solutions.”
