Bayern Munich has announced that the Allianz Arena will be home to the largest video wall in Europe. The existing video walls, after twelve years of use, will be replaced by two new 200 square meter screens. That’s twice the size of the old screens. “We are moving into the ultra HD era,” said Allianz Arena chairman Jürgen Muth. Smaller screens will be installed on the back of the video walls so that those behind them will be able to see.

In addition to the new video screens, new LED floodlights will be suspended from the roof of the stadium. These lights will be more efficient in terms of power consumption and will ensure brighter lighting than before. As part of the package, these lights will also have the ability to change color for special effects.

Bayern also announced several innovations in medical technology stemming from their new partnership with technology conglomerate Siemens. In particular, Bayern is working with Siemens Healthineers, the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens.

Siemens Healthineers will equip the Allianz Arena with state-of-the-art ultrasound and X-rays that will help in the process of recovery of injured players. "The good health of our players is one of the cornerstones of our success," said Andreas Jung, board member of FC Bayern Munich. He continued,

This is why we are happy with this partnership with Siemens Healthineers, the world leader in medical imaging. With its innovative technology, it will provide strong support for the work of our medical department when it comes to examining and treating our players.

By using the most current technology Bayern Munich continues to push the envelope in terms of improving player health and the fan experience.
