San Jose Sharks Opening Night - 2021



San Jose, California


SAP Center



The San Jose Sharks turn seats into an arena-wide video screen

In the middle of the pandemic, the San Jose Sharks jumped together with PixMob on a new innovation project. PixMob wanted to disrupt itself from light up wearables and to reinvent the in-arena experience. On October 16, the Sharks fans witnessed stunning visuals never seen before.

The energy was electric at the SAP Center, and NOVA Pro—a permanent in-seat LED installation—amplified the Sharks opening game against the Winnipeg Jets, further cementing the trust in a long-standing partnership between the Sharks and PixMob. 

Equipped with a 1.5W LED, the NOVA Pro shone ten times brighter than a traditional PixMob wristband, amplifying the game-opening, goals, and other key moments during the game. This latest innovation runs on PixMob Video, a patented technology that enables us to control all embedded pixels individually, creating a live video image as seen during the game with the Sharks!

Rugged and durable, the NOVA Pro is designed to withstand enthusiastic fans. Over the summer, 16,000 devices were installed by the arena staff, followed by intensive programming sessions by the PixMob team, who paired each device individually to an advanced monitoring system.

The NOVA Pro paves the way for sustainable and improved in-arena experiences for fans and event producers alike.
