The Lusail Sports Arena in Lusail, Qatar, is using the Riedel MediorNet real-time media network and RockNet real-time audio network to simplify the management of numerous signals throughout the venue. Built to host matches in the 2015 World Mens Handball Championship, the 15,300-capacity indoor sports arena leverages Riedel’s fibre networks to reduce the overall volume of cabling required and to make a variety of signals available as needed to support live events.
Our goal in deploying a fibre network at the Lusail Sports Arena was to manage the transport and routing of many signals throughout the building in the most efficient manner, said Moufed Elefrangy, Project Engineer at Techno Q, the Qatar-based systems integrator, responsible for the project. The MediorNet and RockNet systems were integrated into the architecture of the Lusail Sports Arena by Techno Q.
The Lusail Sports Arena is a powerful and iconic visual symbol of Lusail City, which itself represents Qatars vision of a modern sustainable city, said Ahmed Magd El Din, General Manager for the Middle East and Turkey at Riedel Communications.
Though it was built according to the tight timeline dictated by its first event, the World Mens Handball Championship, the facility boasts an array of advanced technologies. Our fibre-based real-time media network solutions are an ideal fit for such an installation, simplifying extensive signal management while providing the reliability and versatility essential to high-profile sports events and productions.
