The Kraken wakes with digital signage rollout at Climate Pledge Arena

Seattle Kraken has moved into its newly redeveloped 17,100 capacity, $1.15b home on the site of the Seattle Centre, home to the World’s Fair in 1962. Operated by the Oak View Group (OVG), Climate Pledge Arena is a modern home for the city’s NHL team, boasting some of the most progressive, innovative, and modern technology and sustainable architecture.

Climate Pledge Arena boasts 28,175 square feet of digital signage, a record in the world for a sports or entertainment venue; with content delivered to display real-estate in suites, concessions, hospitality areas, kiosks, LED boards and concourses via the Tripleplay IPTV and Digital Signage CMS.

Deployed by Diversified, Tripleplay’s platform is used to broadcast digital media, live game footage and important messaging across the facility to more than 650 displays; giving the venue operator the ability to individually address each screen or control as groups or instantly rebrand the arena for any event.

Dave Curry, Vice President of Technology at Climate Pledge Arena comments, “When building a facility of this nature and scale we needed to work with tried, tested and trusted partners. The experience of Diversified and Tripleplay in sports stadium and arena deployments gave us peace of mind and confidence that our record-breaking venue would have a world-class technology solution.

“The solution delivered has given us a communications and branding tool that allows us to better engage our visitors, fans and guests and enhances their experience in a hugely positive way. Climate Pledge Arena is a unique venue, and Tripleplay allows us to continue creating unique experiences for every event we host.”

EVP for Tripleplay North America, Paul Harris adds, “For a multi-purpose and forward-thinking venue like Climate Pledge Arena it was essential they had a way to instantly rebrand the facility for every event that takes place; Tripleplay has enabled that. This is an iconic venue, in an iconic location and we are looking forward to supporting the Kraken and the operations team as they deliver world-class experiences.”

Tripleplay digital signage and IPTV has been deployed to more than 650 displays utilizing a mix of Tripleplay’s PLAY3R SP1, BrightSign XT and Bluefin all-in-one displays.
