Cisco is providing new technology to Barclays Center and the Nets that will permit fans inside the arena to view exclusive video feeds via mobile devices at games and live events, according to Sports Business Journal.
SBJ's Don Muret reports Cisco's StadiumVision Mobile, integrated into the Barclays Center app, allows fans to get exclusive feeds from Cisco cameras placed throughout the building as well as the YES Network. That YES feed will not carry commercials. In addition, small wireless cameras have been placed in select locations — the scorer’s table, the players’ bench and a basket stanchion — to give an insider’s view.
Over the next few weeks, SBJ reports cameras also could be set up in premium spaces for behind-the-ropes feeds from the Calvin Klein Courtside Club or the Nets’ practice court. The app’s "watch" icon opens the various camera views.
Meanwhile, the Post is the latest to feature the arena's bus elevator which has become the talk of the NBA. As Joakim Noah says, it's "trippy."
Bob Sanna, who managed the construction of the arena for Forest City Ratner, it's practical.
“You might have this in big warehouses, [but] it’s one-of-a-kind certainly in sports facilities,” Sanna said. “It’s the type of equipment you need in a tight urban site to get vehicles in and out of a building without backing up traffic.”
