There is nothing like being at a game, especially when your team is winning. The goal for sports teams and venues is to create a truly memorable experience that fans cannot get sitting in their living rooms watching on TV. Such an experience comes not only from great game play but also from great game presentation. Game presentation is the art of creating a unique visual and auditory experience that supports and enhances the game play. Effective game presentation uses all the resources at the venue’s disposal to deliver a one-of-a-kind fan experience and drive revenue opportunities.
To maximize fan experience and revenues, teams are extending the game presentation beyond the bowl, engaging fans with service and technology throughout the venue. One of the most effective ways to accomplish this is to use one of a venues’ greatest assets — their TVs. The television viewing experience within sports and entertainment venues needs to go beyond what fans can get at home. IPTV with digital signage creates new opportunities to do exactly that. It enhances the fan experience and substantially increases revenues by turning every display into a digital asset that people will connect with and dwell on. IPTV with digital signage offers superior picture quality, low latency in the game feed, and synchronized playback that creates a dynamic visual that commands immediate attention. It also takes into consideration the environmental, administration, and content management needs, and provides additional features that support convention, meeting, and hospitality services outside of game days.
Deploying 200 to more than 3,000 displays/players in one building on one local area network, all while meeting the above requirements, is a major undertaking, and that’s where VITEC comes in.
