Quince Imaging’s Eric Gazzillo, Ryan Andrus on Supplementing Washington Capitals Games With the Zelus Projection System
On-ice projection within the National Hockey League has turned from hot commodity to a more commonplace scene at all 30 venues. To buck this trend, Quince Imaging has developed a new activation through a partnership with the NHL and the league’s real-time player statistics. Dubbed the Zelus Projection System, the technology is capable of displaying both team-based and player-based numbers like shots on goals, blocked shots, missed shots, and other information on the playing surface during intermissions. Aiming to implement this product league wide, the company worked with the Washington Capitals for use during every home game at Capital One Arena.
In this video interview, Quince Imaging’s VP, Innovation, Eric Gazzillo and Senior Real-Time Creative Technologist Ryan Andrus detail the behind-the-scenes that went into developing these graphics, how their reputation around the league helped them achieve this partnership with 2018 Stanley Cup Champions, the challenges that were resolved along the way, and how this solution can improve as the 2023-24 NHL regular season continues.
