ATLANTA - Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on Mercedes-Benz Stadium before it opens on Aug. 26.

Last week, Channel 2’s Craig Lucie told you about solar power at the stadium, how the stadium will conserve water and today, it was all about technology as he toured the new stadium.

Steve Cannon, the CEO of the Arthur Blank Group, spoke about the screens and the beauty of the new stadium during the tour.

The tour started off in the technology loge suites where you can wirelessly charge all of your devices. From there, Lucie went to the technology operations center on the field level.

“They are looking at every aspect in the building to make sure wireless is working and TVs are working,” Cannon said.

With this technology, 71,000 fans can live stream whatever they want at the same time to sites like Facebook live. There are 1,800 Wi-Fi hot spots and the amount of fiber they laid inside is incredible.

“We have over 4,000 miles of fiber in stadium,” Cannon said. “We deliver all content and keep up with demands of the future.”
