Cwin Technology

Cwin Technology | Booth 44

 
JUMBOCAM: A cloud based platform that allows fans to stream video directly from their mobile devices to jumbotrons at stadiums and arenas. The platform enhances the fan experience and creates new sponsorship activation opportunities, including contests and giveaways.

The platform can be used not only by fans at the event, but also by fans watching at home on their televisions and computers!

The action is controlled by via Jumbo Cam’s control panel that allows the stadium’s production staff to pick and choose the people who appear on camera and, just as importantly, the people who don’t.

JUMBO LIVE: As many as a dozen fans can stream on the Jumbotron at one time singing, dancing, chanting, waving and kissing in real time at the event. Fans love to be on the scoreboard, now they don’t have to wait for a cameraman to wander into the their section. All a fan needs to do is press a button on their phones (typically through the team’s or league’s app) to be beamed to the big board.

JUMBO GAMES: Contests and giveaways don’t be have to boring announcements anymore, “The person in section 21, row C, seat 4 come on down you’re the winner”. With Jumbo Cam the once staid giveaway becomes a mini-game show--fans are shown live as they vie for the big prize.

Not only do fans love it, but sponsors can take this high value user generated content and post it across the Internet on social media and their own media outlets.

JUMBO HOME: All the fun isn’t just limited to people at the ballpark—the platform can include people who are watching at home as well. Half-court shot, batter to hit a home-run is no longer limited to the thousands of people attending the event—now the millions who are watching from home can be part of the activation. Fans are streamed live from their homes to the giant screens at the event multiplying the number of eyeballs watching and the revenue generated.

ZIPWHIP | Sponsor Village 13
 
Zipwhip enables businesses to send and receive text messages from their existing landline, VoIP and toll free phone numbers. Zipwhip allows team’s sales and service departments to communicate with fans over the medium most people prefer: texting.
 
Sports sales and service departments are always looking for new ways to engage their fans. Too often we hear about the difficulties these representatives have trying to reach clients who ignore their phone calls and emails. Furthermore, there is a growing number of people that want to text questions and comments, but most teams don’t offer a texting solution.
 
Sales and service members all have landline phone numbers and now Zipwhip is giving those reps another touch point for season ticket renewal and relationship building efforts. By having reps use their existing business phone number for texting, Zipwhip allows for text conversations to live with the team, rather than on the individual’s personal cell phone number.
