This series has been chosen by the integrator Polsound and the distributor Expander for the luxury suites of the headquarters of the Polish football club KS Krakow.

Visionary stadium in Krakow

the Mariscal Józef Piłsudski Stadium, better known as Krakow Stadium, is home to one of Poland's oldest football clubs and known for its successes: KS Krakow. Rebuilt in 2010 and with capacity for more than 15.000 people, It has luxury boxes and suites to fully enjoy the matches and events that are held there.

With a focus on improving entertainment and fan experience, stadium managers have invested in new technologies, for which they have resorted to the Polish specialist Expander, as well as Polsound, exclusive distributor of Visionary in this country, to design and integrate new solutions in their most exclusive spaces.

"KS Krakow stadium includes luxury suites, with four gold and three silver zones, for guests to live a unique experience, explains Anna Stachyra, Polsound Key Account Manager-. These areas are the most exclusive of the stadium; have restaurants, bars and unique product offers for VIP members, so the guest experience had to be first class".

Each zone has been designed as a small room, with the possibility of opening it to create wider and more multifunctional spaces in special events and other activities. "The areas of this stadium have been designed to be used for various purposes.. A necessary solution was a flexible, high-quality video array with ultra-low latency.", adds Stachyra.

For this, multiple screens of the manufacturer NEC Display were paired (currently Sharp/NEC Display) with five PacketAV E4100 encoders and six PacketAV D4100 decoders to facilitate audio and video transmission to different zones. An additional PacketAV E4100 encoder was also included in the rack to transmit a live video signal from the football field.”.

Expandability was a critical consideration when designing the AV structure of KS Krakow's stadium.. "It was important for the customer to have a scalable system," Stachyra said.. Visionary's PacketAV Matrix series allows the customer to extend the system at any time without the need to replace any device: if you need more outputs or inputs, it's easy to add the encoders and set-top boxes and set up the system cost-effectively".

One of the priority elements for those responsible for the stadium was the energy efficiency of the AV system and the noise generated from it.. "We selected Visionary's PacketAV Matrix series because the devices are powered by the PoE standard and each consumes less than 10 watts of power. PacketAV encoders and decoders feature passive cooling, that does not generate any noise and allows the product to be installed directly in the areas", adds this responsible.

specifically, Visionary's PacketAV series is designed for a standard network infrastructure, which allowed the integrator to quickly install the AV system at the Krakow Stadium.

"The installation had to be done between the matches and the events that were held in the enclosure, so the customer needed a flexible video solution that was quick and easy to install, Stachyra continues.. Visionary's PacketAV Matrix series is plug and play, so we completed the installation in a short time without interfering in the events that were held in the stadium. The AV system was installed in such a way that the customer did not feel the presence of the integrator and the end result is an easy-to-use and flexible video and audio solution for different events.".

Visionary PacketAV Matrix 4K UHD over IP Series Encoders and Decoders Redefine Traditional Switching Matrix Systems to Create a Flexible Solution, scalable, cinematic quality for IP networks.

PacketAV endpoints offer ultra-low latency, with unlimited distribution capabilities. Using existing network resources, encoders and decoders can be deployed quickly for cost-effective Dante/AES67 over IP multi-channel audio and video distribution.
