Wireless Ronin Completes Digital Signage Installation at Home of NHL’s Minnesota Wild

Wireless Ronin Technologies, Inc, a Minneapolis-based digital signage provider, announced today that it has completed the installation of a RoninCast digital menu board network at St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center.

“We are very pleased with the final installation at Xcel Energy Center,” said James (Jim) Granger, president and CEO of Wireless Ronin Technologies. “The system brings the concessions areas to a new level by incorporating dynamic technology that reflects the exciting stadium experience through vivid visuals and imagery.”

89 RoninCast digital menu board displays are installed throughout the facility’s concession areas including the main concourse, Treasure Island Resort and Casino Club Level and the upper concourse for the 2009-10 event season. Wireless Ronin’s Minneapolis Network Operations Center hosts the RoninCast network. Xcel Energy Center’s food service partner, Levy Restaurants, manages updates depending on the time of day or event taking place.

“Wireless Ronin delivered on our goal to bring a new cutting-edge look to our food service areas,” said Jack Larson, vice president and general manager for Xcel Energy Center. “We are already enjoying the flexibility the system provides by remotely managing content updates and customizing the messaging for specific sports or entertainment events.”

Xcel Energy Center’s objective in implementing the system was not only to maintain their reputation of being one of the best arenas in the country by creating a high-tech environment for sports fans, but to also provide greater efficiency and flexibility for Levy to manage content from an off-site location.
