With over half a million fans visiting Ralph Wilson Stadium each year, the video quality on game day is absolutely critical. The major challenge for the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium was the need to manage and stream the appropriate low latency broadcast quality HD video content at the right time to the right monitor, cost effectively. In addition, it was imperative to provide private suites with an enriched television experience that can be controlled individually. The Bills broadcast staff needed to be able to manage the displays from a centralized location by changing channels, controlling volume and powering on and off.
The $130 million renovation included overhauling the entire stadium, from aesthetics to a voltage wiring revamp and technology refresh. The Buffalo Bills and Ralph Wilson Stadium were looking for a system that would take them into tomorrow with upgradable components as well as providing fans with an enhanced game day experience. Making sure the audience stays informed about stadium information and promotional activities on hundreds of monitors without missing a moment of the game is essential to giving the fans the unforgettable experience that will keep them coming back.
