Samsung has announced the installation of their displays at Vivint Smart Home Arena, home of the Utah Jazz. The Utah Jazz teamed up with software integrator RevelTV and Samsung to create a fan experience unlike any other.

More than 600 Samsung screens and videowalls are installed throughout the arena, from the concourse to concession stands to club seating areas. The displays and videowalls helped the arena reopen with a reimagined, fan-focused venue that excites guests and enhances the amenities. Specifically, the 82-inch flat HD displays are equipped with content management tools that make it easy to change the content, messaging and overall look as often as needed. If a client asks for specific advertising, based on time and location, venue management can accomplish that very easily, using the hardware and software installed on the display. Here is a video case study on the integration to provide visuals and additional information.

Rick talks with all three and found out how this all came about and what it means for the future of fan engagement at sporting events. Have a listen.
