Also available during the event was the Eyemagnet-powered Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) solution. Digital screens around the entirety of the stadium are controlled by Eyemagnet media players – phase one of the project has seen us install 200 media players, with the total increasing to 500 during phase two which is currently underway. Our IPTV supports multicast channel streaming to give staff greater control over what is to be displayed around the stadium. Current channel selections include the stadium broadcast feed, Sky Sports, Freeview, TAB, marketing playlists and more.
The Eyemagnet team was on-site during the game to monitor network usage over the night. We also set up a corporate box with an Eyemagnet 'Mission Control' area to demonstrate our technology offerings at the stadium. Visitors could view our WiFi landing page and IPTV solutions in action, as well as download our prototype Westpac Stadium mobile application.
Our prototype Westpac Stadium mobile application provides recent stadium news and upcoming events, live social media integration, match day TV live-streaming, highlight replays and live match statistics - all of these offerings combine to enhance the fan experience and keep users connected to the game.
