DENVER, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Denver based Ping HD, a leading provider of digital communications solutions for the sports, convention and entertainment industries, and Centerplate, the largest hospitality partner to North America's premier sports stadiums, convention centers and entertainment venues, joined to announce installation of Ping HD's newest digital menu board service at Sports Authority Field at Mile High—home of the NFL's Denver Broncos. The installation will be completed in time for the upcoming NFL season.
"We are honored and excited for the opportunity to enhance the in-stadium experience for fans," said Greg Lewis of Ping HD. "Our technology and implementation has proved to be an asset in guest services and as a Colorado based company, we're delighted to demonstrate it at scale here in Denver."
223 Digital Menu Boards will be mounted in a 3-screen array in concession stands throughout the main concourse, United Club and suite levels of the stadium, allowing for dynamic content and clear visual display along with the ability to be easily updated. For fans, that means streaming video during waits at concessions, clarity of content, and menus that are themed to events, whether it's a Broncos game, Denver Outlaws Lacrosse, concerts or any other stadium events.
"We have found the service standard and approach taken by Ping HD to be a worthwhile investment for Centerplate, our clients, and fans," said Bob Pascal, Chief Marketing Officer at Centerplate. "Previous projects with Ping HD at Candlestick Park and AT&T Park (both in San Francisco) demonstrated the technology's ability to improve the fan experience—through improved ordering speed, engaging content during wait times, and better sales through increased visibility."
The boards can be remotely updated by Centerplate with a few mouse clicks from anywhere.
The Ping HD installation at Sports Authority Field at Mile High follows recent projects by Ping HD at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies; AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants; Candlestick Park, home of the San Francisco Giants; and The Palace of Auburn Hills, home of the Detroit Pistons.
