C&K upgraded Hampden Park’s digital TV for the digital switchover
Hampden Park, Scotland’s National Stadium in Glasgow, appointed Campbell & Kennedy (C&K) to carryout a digital TV upgrade due to the digital switchover.
“ When the digital switch-over started, I thought it might have been a bit of an upheaval. But once we engaged Campbell & Kennedy to carry out the digital transition, it was carried out with minimal fuss and total professionalism, henceforth why Campbell & Kennedy will now be my first port of call for any future projects. “
George Cameron, Maintenance & Facilities Manager
C&K’s team supplied and fitted digital terrestrial processors and amplifiers within the headend to allow digital terrestrial signals to be fed through the existing TV network.
The team also upgraded the distribution amplifiers and splitters throughout the stadium to digital standards for future Freeview TV’s.
12 way AV inputs and digital output units were fitted which allowed up to 12 AV sources to be converted to 4 digital Mux’s for distribution through the TV network and to ensure compatibility with Freeview TV’s.
In addition, a digital signage unit to allow corporate advertising was installed. All systems were fully tested and commissioned and full training was provided to the client.
C&Ks team successfully completed the upgrade to the client’s requirements. This enabled the client to control everything from a central location. This meant that different channels could be streamed to different areas.
Since the initial installation, C&K were also contracted to provide reactive maintenance for the system as well as provide a feed for the Olympics so that a dedicated channel could be shown throughout the stadium and dedicated feeds could be sent to the press bench.
