“Colleges are not only wrestling with how to modernize their existing sports facilities and improve the fan experience by affordably delivering high-quality, entertaining video feeds to their displays, but also how to meet the requirements of future facilities today,” said Joe Walsh, VITEC’s sales director for sports and entertainment venues. “VITEC’s EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage platform leverages the organization’s common IP backbone to deliver broadcast-grade, customizable, and eye-catching video streams and revenue-building digital signage campaigns. As new facilities are added and created, they can affordably be incorporated into the display network leveraging the powerful scalability of the EZ TV platform.”
