The 12 x 8m, 15t Sony video walls were lifted into place at a height of 41m using two VT4 machinery hoists, with a special three-fall reeving to guarantee safety, Verlinde said.


The video walls each feature a large front screen and a smaller back screen, which can be lowered out of the main screen. This process is carried out by two VL25 chain hoists with 35m lift heights and simultaneous control.

Amsterdam Arena was opened in 1996 and is home to Dutch football team Ajax. The arena is also used to stage American football matches, concerts and other events. As a sports stadium, it can hold 51,628 spectators, rising to 68,000 for concerts using a stage erected in the centre of the pitch.
