3D Laser Scanning SoFi Stadium For 2022 Super Bowl Mixed Reality
Location: SoFi Stadium -- Inglewood, California
Task: TruePoint 3D laser scanned SoFi Stadium for our client, The Famous Group, to create a mixed-reality experience for the Super Bowl. Using the RTC360 laser scanner, TruePoint's project manager 3D laser scanned the stadium and our in-house team of CAD technicians delivered an LOD 200 Revit 3D model for augmented reality use.
The stadium has 70,240 seats — which can be expanded to 100,240 for major events like the Super Bowl — 260 executive suites and a unique design to protect from potential seismic activity. Additionally, a 2.2 million-pound Infinity Screen by Samsung video board is suspended from the roof over the field.
SoFi Stadium by the numbers
- 298 acres.
- 3.1 million square feet.
- 70,000 seats, expandable to 100,000 for major events and concerts.
- 100,000 tons of steel and cable installed.
- 260 luxury suites.
- 13,000 premium seats.
- 23 elevators, 40 escalators and 2,638 doors.
Solution: In 2 days on site, TruePoint's project manager documented the as-built conditions of the stadium. Using the RTC360 laser scanner, TruePoint 3D laser scanned SoFi stadium, including the field, goal posts, sidelines, end zone, walls, tunnel entrances, scoreboards, concourse, stairs, stands, and suites. An intensity map point cloud and LOD 200 Revit 3D model was delivered for augmented reality use.
Deliverables: All deliverables are created in our corporate office by experienced engineers and CAD technicians. TruePoint delivered the following to the client:
- Colorized Point Cloud in .rcs file format
- Revit 2021 LOD 200 3D Model of Stadium
Added Value: For more than 20 years, The Famous Group has created mixed reality and augmented reality for Fortune 500 brands, professional sports events, esports, concerts, festivals and retail environments. Super Bowl Sunday is an opportunity to showcase this cutting-edge technology before a global audience.
