Sammy Offer Stadium
The Sammy Ofer stadium is the home venue for both Maccabi Haifa and Hapoel Haifa in the Israeli Premier League, and the venue for international games. Creative Labs won the tender for the design, construction and implementation of 2 new digital score boards with a combined size of 160 sqm. The project included complex planning of the hanging mechanism which was required to hold a structure weighing over 27 tons. Creative Labs designed and manufactured all of the technical aspects of the screens including the bundle connectors, screen covers, bridges leading to the screens, lifting mechanisms, integration management systems, and more.
Creative Labs also developed the content management system for screening results, instant replays, match moves, statistics and image videos. In addition, these screens are used for screening presentations, videos, welcome messages for the guests invited at every event held in the stadium. Alongside the content management systems we implemented transmission cards capable of capturing an HDSDI interface from the mobile broadcast vehicle, in order to facilitate live broadcasts, replays and advertising media.
The game management system was designed and developed by Creative Labs together with a local software partner allowing for the management of the game through the use of a simple and highly intuitive Hebrew interface – the first of its kind in the country. The Creative Labs studio also produced multiple video effects that were integrated as part of the game management system.
