ADI’s new Live Venue screen management


sport-kit.net KEYWORDS adi tv


Stadium screen and broadcast spe- cialists ADI.tv has launched Live Venue. Billed as the ‘cloud computing’ of stadium screen management, it removes the requirement for a broad- cast studio at football clubs. Instead, ADI manages and delivers content to screens via high-speed fibre optic links from its central European Opera- tions Centre. The development not only saves stadium owners money in many areas but also ensures a club’s equipment never dates.

Charles Lawrence Surfaces installed a temporary track on The Mall in London for a sprint battle between man – British Olympic sprinter Mark Lewis-Francis – and machine, a BMW 320d ED, part of the BMW London 2012 Olympic fleet. Lewis- Francis repeatedly launched from the blocks, with both he and the car being professionally timed and their progress mapped. Acceleration, reaction time and speed were all recorded across three distances. The results saw man beating machine at all distances up to 30m. Beyond that, the car started to outstrip the athlete.
