ADX Stock Exchange modernizes its displays with Wavetec’s state-of-the-art information display solutions




Project requirements


The developers wanted to afford the investor a seamless and simple visitor journey. The investor would visit the trading hall, guided, informed, and engaged by Wavetec screens that display real-time financial market data. Also, the ADX switched locations and designed the new space according to modern standards.

ADX required that the facilities available to investors and traders be industry-leading, optimized, and integrate-able for additional convenience.                                                                                                                     






In response to the requirements, Wavetec deployed the following information display systems:


‘Curved’-shaped screen (21 meters)


Resolution of 12672 x 864 pixels, with a pixel pitch of 1.5mm

Dimensions of 21 meters (length) x 1.35 meters (height), wide landscape screens

Resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels each, with a pixel pitch of 1.8mm

Dimensions of 3 meters (length) x 1.35 meters (height), HD landscape screens

Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX.) is a leading stock exchange situated in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). This exchange serves many industries including but not limited to banking, insurance, services, hotels, etc., with global reach and impact!


The growth of this exchange has helped economic diversification and the proliferation of sustainable finance. And in light of this, a new trading floor was planned, built, and opened at the exchange in September 2021. This new floor offers modern infrastructure and technological facilities to support all stakeholders.


To make the above possible, Wavetec was brought on board in February 2021 to provide real-time information display systems, capable of digital signage, and management solutions for the trading hall.
