On Monday, the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League (NFL) announced the deployment of Cisco TelePresenceTM and Cisco StadiumVisionTM to help fans “Live the Game” at state-of-the-art Land Shark Stadium.
The leading technology solutions deployed at Land Shark Stadium, which is playing host to this season’s Super Bowl and Pro Bowl, were unveiled before Monday night’s home opener for the Dolphins by team 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, the first Cisco TelePresence connection from the stadium to ESPN studios in Bristol, Conn. and an announcement that future Dolphin fans will experience and participate in all the action in ways never before seen with the use of Flip VideoTM, Cisco’s bestselling fan-friendly pocket camcorders.
“First and foremost, fans attend a game to see their team win. But I also understand the importance of creating the best possible game-day experience to attract fans to the stadium, ” Ross said. “Teaming with Cisco, we will use technology as our home-field advantage to offer fans a unique, immersive game-day experience.”
Some features of the “Live the Game!” experience include:
– Land Shark Stadium will feature more than 1, 500 high-definition displays to immerse fans in the HD experience with Cisco StadiumVision. Fans will be able to view sports news and scores, weather and traffic while also watching live game action.
– All concession stands will have digital menus for food and beverage ordering.
