SVG SportsTech On Demand: PRG's Eileen Valois on Responding to the Current Pandemic With Agile At-Home Solutions
In an effort to keep the broadcast-technology community informed this spring, throughout April, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors discussing their latest product releases and company news. Our Ken Kerschbauer sat down with Eileen Valois, SVP, sports & fan entertainment, PRG, about the company’s efforts.
Like all companies, PRG has been working through ways they can pivot across the business in their response to the coronavirus. For sports, they’ve put together a few concepts and services to help teams drive engagement with their fans. In this interview, Valois talks through the empty stadium and arena environment as teams return to the field of play, gamification to assist professional athletes and their esports pop-up leagues, and experiential activations in dark stadium spaces as a way to safely connect the communities and put some of their people back to work.
