Look for a stream of reports soon, perhaps this week, on the Nets technology plans for Barclays Center.
Quietly last week, the Nets, the arena and a Toronto-based company named Ortsbo announced a partnership that will permit the translation of arena-driven social media content into 53 languages. That way, fans can view an international chat thread in their native languages, Crain's reports.
This week, expect more on the technology side from from Brett Yormark who hinted Monday of an imminent "roll-out" for Barclays Center TV, the internal video feed at the arena and plans for a "high density Wi-Fi solution coupled with the distributed antenna system" at the Brooklyn arena. The arena is also expected to have a Twitter feed that will direct fans to what's going on at games or concerts.
