Green Bay Packers select VITEC’s IPTV HD video solution at Lambeau Field

VITEC – a global leader in the provision of powerful digital video solutions – has been chosen by the Green Bay Packers for High Definition (HD) content delivery to over 600 large LCD TV’s throughout Lambeau Field, providing ultra-low latency IP streaming throughout the stadium concourses, premium club areas and VIP suites, so fans can enjoy the ultimate game-day experience.

The Green Bay Packers chose VITEC’s IPTV Solution for the cost-effective combination of providing low latency streaming video and a flexible, customisable design giving them the ability, freedom and support to further develop, enhance and optimise the EZ TV system. VITEC provided an end-to-end streaming video system that displays pristine High Definition H.264 video, with ultra-low latency, over IP networks to over 600 large LCD TVs around the main concourse at Lambeau Field.

VITEC’s IPTV solution has modules to control the television end points via Set Top boxes, which provide central channel management, volume and power controls enabling the delivery of game, event, informative and advertorial video content. VITEC’s EZ TV gives Lambeau Field administrators complete control of the user experience by selecting which channel to view on any TV, anywhere in the stadium. VITEC helped the Green Bay Packers to turn Lambeau Field into a fully optimised venue using cutting-edge IPTV technology to deliver broadcast-grade HD video.

Eli Garten, Vice President of Product Management at VITEC, said:

VITEC is quickly becoming a solution leader for professional and college stadiums and arenas and the Green Bay Packers are a perfect example of how sports arena A/V groups can adapt VITEC’s open-architecture IPTV and signage system to their specific workflows. Video quality, ultra-low latency IP streaming and the customization are the driving factors behind choosing VITEC.
