Elemental Technologies and Stanford Athletics to Offer Instant Replays on Mobile Devices
Elemental Technologies recently announced that the Wi-Fi Instant Replay system used by the Department of Athletics at Stanford University will be powered by Elemental Live. The company is a supplier of video solutions for multi-screen content delivery.
Stanford Athletics is one of the first intercollegiate athletic programs that brought on board instant replay over Wi-Fi at every one of its sports venues. With this system, fans will instantly be able to gain access to video/audio replay on their Wi-Fi powered mobiles. Diversified Systems is a partner with Elemental and functions as a systems integrator. The company comes with several years of experience in building video infrastructure specifically for sports venues.
In a release, Keith Wymbs, Vice President of Marketing at Elemental Technologies, said, “Demand for real-time, high-quality content on mobile devices is growing and sports fans are no exception. Stanford Athletics offers a unique opportunity to connect fans to an interactive experience that’s already proving to be a huge value-add in major league sports venues.”
The Wi-Fi Instant Replay system is able to provide fans with Wi-Fi enabled devices, clippings of an event within 15 seconds of it having taken place. This is done with Elemental Live providing adaptive bit rate video. All of the replays can be accessed for free from the Stanford GameDay Live website. Fans that are present at any of the sports events at Stanford Stadium and Maples Pavilion will also have access to these clippings. FanConneX were behind the creation of the website as well as the backend programming that allows video display and other interactive features on mobile devices.
