Daktronics partners VITEC to drive stadium technology

Venue display and control systems specialist Daktronics has joined forces with technology company VITEC on a venture to deliver a new, integrated solution to stadia and arenas around the world.

Daktronics’ Show Control System and VITEC’s EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform will both feature in the solution, which the two companies said will serve as a “unique and powerful” tool.

The integrated solution claims to streamline game-day operations by combining centralised, one-button control over all viewing screens.

Daktronics and VITEC said this will make it easier to provide a unified visual experience across all visual campaigns, including IPTV and digital signage.

Bill Hadsell, product management for Daktronics, said: “At Daktronics, we empower our customers to create memorable fan experiences and to produce live events that truly come to life through eye-catching displays and purpose-built control technology.

“Integrating our award-winning Show Control System with VITEC’s cutting-edge IPTV and Digital Signage Platform enables venues to engage with fans across all their screens in the most efficient, streamlined way in the industry.”

Eli Garten, vice-president enterprise video solutions at VITEC, which specialises in IPTV, digital signage and video streaming solutions, added: “Our IPTV and Digital Signage Platform is the first choice for any venue.

“From collegiate facilities to professional sports arenas, the integrated solution from VITEC and Daktronics delivers the perfect combination of a sophisticated, unique fan experience with an easy-to-operate control system — all powered by world-class hardware that’s designed to work 24/7.”
