As more fans expect, and demand, an in-venue experience that exceeds, or is at least different from, what they can get on TV, arenas and stadiums are seeing an urgent need to upgrade and integrate technology across all fan touch-points and activities. Suites, concourse, and concession areas at stadiums and arenas are vital extensions of the live action on the field, court or stage. They welcome fans into a facility, help to establish the tone of the event, and are a major source of profit for the venue, team, and others.
Unfortunately, fan engagement has become a difficult task as of late with the continual advancements in DVRs and home theater systems. Facilities are increasingly competing with a fan’s choice of home viewing over attending an event live, which is resulting in an overall decrease in ticket sales. In addition, many facilities are challenged by the installation and operational costs associated with upgrades and cannot always finance the supporting infrastructure. Panasonic understands these challenges and takes an end-to-end view of suites, concourses and concessions to provide customized solutions featuring products from Panasonic’s vast portfolio including professional/commercial 2D and 3D displays, point of sale workstations, outdoor LCDs, video surveillance and ToughPad tablets along with supporting software and services.
