In BayArena, video and mobility offerings will be core to delivering one the most connected and interactive fan experiences in international football, and all of sports. StadiumVision will centrally manage high definition video and digital content delivery to approximately 500 high-definition video displays, Connected Stadium Wi-Fi will give thousands of fans reliable and fast access to the Internet, and StadiumVision Mobile will deliver live video to those connected fans’ mobile devices, through the planned Bayer 04 app.
Wolfgang Holzhaeuser, Bayer 04’s managing director, stated, “The project heralds a new dimension in communication between the club and its fans – one that will boost fan loyalty and offer more information and entertainment. We’re blazing a trail for the Bundesliga.”
StadiumVision Mobile is the perfect example of what the new fan experience will look like. This video from Fast Company showcases how the solution allows fans to connect to the action through their personal mobile device at Barclays Center during Brooklyn Nets games.
At Cisco we are committed to delivering for leagues, venues, teams, and ultimately the fans. Because we are fans; and we want this experience at the games we attend. Bayer Leverkusen and Deutsche Telekom are helping make this a reality in Germany.
