Cisco announced yesterday, in lieu of a Monday Night Football game at Land Shark Stadium in Miami, that the Miami Dolphins NFL franchise has launched Cisco StadiumVision and Telepresence at the facility.
The solutions were unveiled prior to the first Monday Night Football home opener by Dolphins owner and managing general partner, Stephen Ross and Cisco CEO and Chairman, John Chambers. The demonstration included a tour of the new fan-facing technology capabilities in the stadium and the first Cisco TelePresence connection from the stadium to the ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn.
StadiumVision is an end-to-end video and digital content-distribution solution, designed to deliver live game video, targeted advertising and promotions, personal video and customized content per event via digital signage in luxury boxes and public areas of the stadium.
Land Shark Stadium will feature more than 1,500 HD displays functioning with StadiumVision. Content can be designed so that fans will be able to view sports news and scores, weather and traffic without missing any of the game. All concession stands will also be outfitted with digital menu boards tied to the StadiumVision network.
“The sports industry is in a market transition, and the network is the platform upon which this industry can redefine the sporting entertainment experience for fans and future-proof their networks to be able to evolve as fans needs grow,” said John T. Chambers, Cisco chairman and chief executive officer. “The Miami Dolphins are a leader in using technology to redefine the fan experience, demonstrate the value of video to harness the passion of sports, and enable fans to create new experiences in the stadium.”
