Sports stadiums have become more than just forums for watching live sports. Gone are the days where fans were spectators – they now appreciate a much more immersive experience, making them feel like a part of the event. To stay competitive with the big flat-screen TV’s in the home or sports bar, thriving stadiums are adding a complete digital experience to bring out the fans and keep them engaged. From Dallas’ AT&T Stadium to the upcoming launch of what some are calling the world’s most advanced sporting venue, the $1.4 Billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium under construction in Atlanta, we’re seeing an evolution in connectivity, signage, and digital audio-visual solutions to ‘up the game’.
Rich Pierro, CEO of Premier Mounts, has been working with venues like Mercedes-Benz Stadium to design, manufacture, and install the next generation of display solutions. “To maintain and grow attendance, the demand for fan-based technology is a no brainer,” he said, emphasizing three main points why:
The philosophy driving these modern venues is simple: engage the fans with attractive, entertaining, and informative content from the moment they approach the venue and keep them engaged the entire time they are present.
Premier Mounts supports sports venues, like the American Airlines Arena in Miami, in their mission to connect with fans through innovative mounting solutions for a broad range of digital display products. Combining fixed video display with wireless connectivity innovations like ‘stadium exclusive replays’ brings younger generations of fans back to the stadium who may have been staying home for a more digitally connected experience.
