Built alongside the existing Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) and Clyde Auditorium, The SSE Hydro is a music and live events venue to match any around the world. Designed by Foster + Partners, this unique venue is a welcome addition to the Glasgow skyline and is helping attract some of the world’s leading performers, events and shows to Scotland.
Completed in September 2013, The SSE Hydro was purpose built to provide audiences with the best possible live experience throughout their visit, whilst also creating the opportunity for the SECC to generate extra revenue through advertising, corporate sponsorship and strategic partnerships.
As such the SECC team investigated current options for a complete digital signage and IPTV solution, with a focus on allowing them to leverage existing investment in the IP network backbone that had been implemented around site. The SECC team decided that, for The SSE Hydro, they would work with Sony and Tripleplay.
“We looked at several options for our arena, with the Sony and Tripleplay solution proving both the most cost effective and the closest match in terms of our technical requirements,” commented Tony Edwards, Technical Manager for the SECC.
