SVG Sports Venue Technology Summit Goes to College; Reserve Your Chance to Tour UW’s Husky Stadium Today!
From record-breaking videoboards and IPTV deployments to mobile apps and in-venue connectivity that rivals the pros, college football stadiums are certainly having their moment. Leading the charge is University of Washington’s newly renovated Husky Stadium, located in tech-savvy Seattle. Now in its second season, Husky Stadium epitomizes today’s “connected stadium.”
SVG’s annual Sports Venue Technology Summit travels to the Pacific Northwest for its first-ever tour of a college football stadium. Join us on Wednesday Oct. 15 for an in-depth look at UW’s massive $280 million renovation of its athletic facilities, which includes a revamped video-control room in Alaska Airlines Arena and plenty of new videoboards in Husky Stadium, Alaska Airlines Arena, and Husky Ballpark.
Following the tour, stick around for an afternoon of informative panel discussions. Local teams — the Seattle Mariners, Seattle Seahawks, Portland Trailblazers, and Vancouver Canucks — will share their game-day workflows and offer tips on how to present the best show possible.
The day continues with a panel devoted to the mobile experience. With so much content and capabilities at fans’ fingertips, find out what role live video plays and what fans are really looking for on game day.
Then it’s the systems integrators’ turn, sharing what trends they see in control-room technology and design and what tools you need to keep your in-venue videoboard looking spectacular.
The day winds down with two forward-looking panels, exploring the transition to IP-based networks and 4K video. Not there yet? No problem. Listen in and get a sense of where venues are headed from leading technology vendors, including Panasonic, Sony, and Imagine Communications.
And, to wrap things up, a networking reception will give attendees the chance to mingle with panelists, local team representatives, and technology vendors.
