The hoists, from French firm Verlinde, have been installed alongside an FL4PRMLV controller, also from Verlinde, to elevate the cube, which primarily consists of Italian firm Tecnovision’s LED screens and displays game scores, adverts and personal messages.

Yugoslavia’s Light and Sound Design was chosen to work on the media cube, and said it opted to use Verlinde’s Stagemaker SM10 hoists “for their quality/price ratio, support and our good working history with their equipment”.

Arena Zagreb has a 22,400 concert capacity, with 15,200 seats. It has already been used to stage games of the 2009 World Men’s Handball Championship, and will be used to host other sporting events, such as athletics, basketball and volleyball, as well as concerts exhibitions, fairs, conventions and congresses.
