Debuting at Volkswagen Arena with new EuroLeague Kstats system integrated with Colosseo SMP
Colosseo Single Media Platform (SMP) flexibility proved its value with fast and flexible integration of the new EuroLeague statistical system Kstats at Volswagen Arena in Istanbul.
The opening match of the new Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season between the home club Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul and visiting EA7 Emporio Armani Milan demonstrated that the integration requested by the new EuroLeague rules was completed successfully.
The integration itself includes importing of statistical data like score, period, team fouls, personal fouls, players’ points, 2 or 3 point shots, etc., and exporting of Colosseo TIMER data like game time and shot clock times. Selected statistical data is subsequently processed by the Colosseo Single Media Platform and can be automatically shown on the LED videoboard or centre-hung videoboard in various graphic designs, e.g., during intermissions.
Colosseo became the first technology and multimedia supplier within the EuroLeague that fully and completely integrated such a system and proved its functionality, while significantly improving fan game experience and infotainment by having all necessary player and team statistical data visually available on the venue’s videoboards.

About Volkswagen Arena
Volkswagen Arena in Istanbul became a new multipurpose modern venue of the next generation. Formerly intended to only be a concert venue, the arena underwent a huge technology transformation to become the new home for Darüşşafaka Doğuş Istanbul, one of the best professional teams of the premium Turkish basketball super league and also a member of the Turkish Airlines Euroleague.
The opening match with CSKA Moscow produced exciting action and revealed recently installed new elements in the arena. The absolute main attraction for fans was the brand new unique centre-hung video board with a timeless design, stylish ultra-thin side screens and main screens with 6mm LED technology for the brightest and most crisp image possible. In addition, ribbon boards and two big LED screens were installed on both sides of the Arena for better monetising and marketing capability.
The LED inventory weren’t the only upgrades. The Arena was also equipped with a fully integrated control system – Single Media Platform together with timing, scoring and statistics. In order to provide players, fans and referees with maximum information and comfort during the match, the Arena was also equipped with the latest basketball accessories, like double-sided transparent shot clocks and possession arrow indicators.
