Playing surface projection mapping

Pump up the crowd.

Now more than ever, sport franchises and facilities are looking for new ways to enhance the fan experience and pump up the crowd during live sporting events. Playing surface mapping (PSM) is a big, bold, exciting way to energize audiences by presenting amazing visuals projected right on the playing surface.

It doesn’t matter if it’s an ice rink, basketball court, or baseball, football or soccer field, PSM is a great way to engage and entertain your fans and give them one more reason to get off the couch and into the seats! What’s more, teams are discovering innovative ways to employ PSM as an integral training and analytical tool to augment practice and player development.

The Toronto Maple Leafs PSM system at the Air Canada Centre, developed in partnership with Solotech and Pixel Magic Design, comprises a fleet of Christie Roadster WU20K-J projectors, Christie Mystique auto-alignment, Christie Pandoras Box and Widget Designer.

Minnesota Vikings’ home game playing surface mapping at the U.S. Bank Stadium uses 12 Christie Boxer 4K30 projectors, Christie Pandoras Box and Widget Designer.
