One of the larger sports hall complexes in the Bern agglomeration is the Weissenstein sports halls. This was built to reduce the shortage of sports halls in and around Bern. The project was initiated by the city of Bern and the municipality of Köniz. The hall was built in 2014 according to plans by Penzel Valier.
The Weissenstein sports halls serve as a training and playing venue for national championships (Floorbal Köniz Bern, Futsal Minerva, Volley Köniz). SpoHaWe AG had the goal to modernize the infrastructure and to adapt it to today's needs. Kilchenmann received the order to renew the analog sports displays and to expand the multimedia system with an LED wall.
An LED wall measuring 3.84 x 2.16 meters was installed at a height of around three meters and is now used to display individual sports information. This video wall consists of several modules from which a large screen of the desired size can be assembled and is not susceptible to ball bounces, for example.
Both analog scoreboards have been replaced by two digital ones. These are controlled by special software from Bodet Sport. These sports scoreboards are able to withstand demanding environments and ball impacts. The entire system is controlled simply and intuitively via a scorepad. This is a control panel with a touch screen that can be used to control the displays on the scoreboards. This innovative control panel makes it possible to manage more than 40 sports at all competition levels. As a result, the score display complies with sporting regulations.
The scorepad, which is connected via radio, is located in a mobile rack in the hall. An HDMI connection has also been installed so that other sources, such as a laptop, can be easily connected and the content output via the system.
Another rack for control and signal management has been installed in the technical room. The system can be used as a whole or in individual components.
