The desire to improve the quality and efficiency of the technologies for post-match press conferences has seen an increasing number of sporting arenas investing in their press facilities. The recently completed new stadium in the city of Tizi Ouzou, Algeria, is a venue that has made this a priority right from the start, with the installation of a CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System and an Integrus Wireless Language Distribution System from Bosch Building Technologies.

The 50,000-seat stadium is the new home of Algeria’s most successful football club, JS Kabylie, and has been built to exacting UEFA standards. This includes all the press and broadcast infrastructure and meant that a high-quality press conference solution was demanded from the outset.

New Stadium of Tizi Ouzou called on Turkish Bosch partner Atempo to design the solution for the press conference room, along with the rest of the audio systems for the venue. The company has worked on a variety of stadium projects and understands exactly what is required to meet the intricacies of UEFA standards, while also allowing a venue the flexibility to host non-sporting events.

The stadium required a press conference solution that would offer high-quality sound and the flexibility to meet changing needs -- all with a modern and stylish design. The CCS 1000 D Digital Discussion System met these needs thanks to its compact size, easy set-up and user-friendly operation, together with advanced features and versatility. Designed especially for quick, plug-and-play installation, it is a dedicated solution for small to medium-sized meeting areas, making it a perfect fit for the press conference room. The Integrus Wireless Language Distribution System completes the installation, featuring 50 pocket receivers for the press representatives for simultaneous translation into eight languages.

The solution met all requirements of the stadium officials for a portable solution that could be used in different configurations according to the needs of stadium officials.

“The Bosch conference system presents a solution that fits exactly the requirements in the press areas of stadiums,” states Erhan Yılmaz, technical manager at Atempo. “Bosch's high-quality microphone technology ensures a clear and intelligible audio experience. The Bosch conference system can adapt quickly to different events and needs. With its stylish and modern design, it adds prestige to the press area. Bosch's quality products ensure trouble-free and flawless press conferences.”
