The University of Washington keeps its Husky fans engaged with one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in college football. Prior to the 2013 season, the University called in Imagine Communications (known formerly as Harris Broadcast) to install a Nexio InfoCaster IPTV solution as part of a $280 million renovation of Husky Stadium, Alaska Airlines Arena and Husky Ballpark.
Imagine, working with subcontractor Diversified Systems, installed approximately 1,000 InfoCaster Players on LG displays throughout the three venues. The project, spearheaded by Van Wagner Sports & Entertainment senior vice president Bob Jordan, represents the largest IPTV deployment in the collegiate market to date.
The Nexio InfoCaster system enables the university’s in-house production staff to create and send zone-specific content to any number of screens throughout the campus. Controlling the hundreds of InfoCaster Players is the InfoCaster Manager head-end, located in Alaska Airlines Arena’s video control room, which serves all three newly renovated athletic facilities.
