FC Porto switches to Calibre scalers22 November 2016
Portuguese integrator TAC (The Audiovisual Company) has upgraded the media presentation rooms and main bowl LED displays at FC Porto’s Dragão Stadium with Calibre LEDView720 and LEDView730 4K scalers.
Eduardo Costa, general technical manager at TAC, said: “We use Calibre to adapt input resolution to the main stadium LED Screens during live games or for digital signage at corporate events. The scalers can switch input channels in under a quarter of a second and they have multiple outputs for local monitoring of live output feeds.”
“The project was completed with 100% effectiveness. The displays are enjoyed by the visiting public in general and club fans. Because the scalers are 4K compatible, they are a future proof tool for our client.”
One of a small number of stadiums to have received a 5-star rating from UEFA, soccer’s European governing body, Dragão Stadium has strong environmental credentials.
