Cisco today announced the general release of StadiumVision Mobile, a cutting-edge solution that delivers live streaming video to mobile devices within sports and entertainment venues over Wi-Fi. The full Cisco announcement is available here.
Sporting Innovations has worked closely with Cisco on the development of StadiumVision Mobile through field trials at Sporting Park since the stadium opened in 2011. This includes an initial beta test for Sporting Kansas City fans last fall.
Sporting Innovations and Sporting Kansas City will announce further details about the availability of StadiumVision Mobile during the 2013 Major League Soccer season in the coming weeks.
The following quotes are from the Cisco announcement:
David Holland, general manager and senior vice president, Cisco Sports & Entertainment Solutions Group
"The introduction of Cisco StadiumVision Mobile marks a significant milestone for Cisco and the Sports and Entertainment industry. As prominent teams and customers around the world, such as the Brooklyn Nets, Real Madrid and Sporting Kansas City, begin to use this solution, fans will be able to use their mobile devices to transport themselves to the center of the action – no matter where they are in the venue. We are empowering our customers to meet the demands of a new generation of fans with media-rich, personalized experiences that translate into significant business opportunities."
Bringing this solution to market required not only significant research and development investment from Cisco, but the expertise of organizations like Sporting Innovations, who tested, refined and advanced the solution over the past year. The dedication and focus of the Cisco Sports & Entertainment Solutions Group, along with collaboration from our customers over the last 18 months, have made StadiumVision Mobile an exciting reality."
