Monumental Sports worked closely with Quince Imaging’s creative team to develop the pre-game show concept, that became a hit both live in the arena and online.
Washington, D.C. saw the rink lit up in red, opening night at Capital One Arena, for the Washington Caps’ post-season debut. The show, featuring projections and snapshots of team members and mascot, Slapshot, from some of the season’s most victorious moments, was an instant hit – bringing fans to their feet as red glow sticks illuminated the entire arena.
"The No-Brainer Choice For These Complex Installations…"
Designed and installed by Quince Imaging, also deployed the Washington Wizard’s April 20th opening night show, is a first-of-its-kind build, that featured the latest in projection, media server, signal transmission and integration technology.
Coined by Quince as the “trifecta” of sports imaging technology, the product lineup consists of Christie’s Pandoras Box V6 media servers, the brand-new Christie Terra 4K signal transmitter, and the Christie Mystique, which provides an integrative solution to calibrating complex multi-projector display systems.
A DUAL-SPORT PROJECTION SYSTEM
These systems enhance the playoff fan-engagement experience, by amplifying the effects of 3D video-mapped content and interactive special effects during player introductions and halftime shows on the court and rink.
The special-event projection system will remain installed in Capital One Arena throughout the duration of both teams’ playoff runs and will feature exclusive 3D animated content, designed and produced by Quince Imaging’s very own creative team.
The state-of-the-art system, which by all known accounts, is the most sophisticated installation in professional sports to date, will include what the Quince team has coined the “trifecta” of modern sports display and systems integration.
Quince Imaging’s special-event rentals remain a popular choice for high-profile sporting events, such as playoffs, milestone celebrations, team anniversaries and player retirement ceremonies for some teams. Quince Imaging takes great pride in assisting clients and providing an immersive, enthralling experience to their devoted fans.
The product line-up includes Christie’s Pandoras Box media servers, the brand-new Christie Terra 4K signal transmitter, and the Christie Mystique, which provides an integrative solution to calibrating complex, multi-projector display systems.
Asked about the product selection used to catapult the efficiency of Capital One’s special-event installation, Quince Imaging Co-Founder and COO, Scott Williams replied with confidence, “As the markets evolve, the push for automating the time-consuming methods of alignment have led us to adopt and implement these powerful tools from Christie Digital.”
Other teams, such as the Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils, and Chicago’s Bulls and Blackhawks have found value in permanently installing arena projection systems, to utilize for increased home-game fanfare, in their resident arenas.
