Txtstation Mobile Marketing today announced an agreement with ANC Sports Enterprises to provide real-time mobile phone texting to ribbon boards and video screens in collegiate and professional sports venues.
The new relationship provides teams and stadium owners using ANC’s light emitting diode (LED) and DLP® signage systems with the option of using Txtstation Mobile Marketing’s real-time texting for voting and other text to screen applications. The Txtstation Mobile solution feeds real-time data through ANC’s patent-pending VisionSOFT operating system to display the voting results and text messages instantaneously on video screens, ribbon boards, or the DLP® Courtside Digital Signage System.
“ANC has developed a reputation as a leader in the sports venue signage market through innovative software applications and state-of-the-art digital displays,” said Michael Falato, the Vice President of Sales and Business Development, Txtstation. “We are looking forward to engaging fans for both of our partners with Txtstation’s dynamic, real-time in-venue texting application.”
The Txtstation Mobile solution will allow fans to directly interact with each other and corporate partners through various mobile text to screen applications such as polling the game’s Most Valuable Player, best defensive play, or even sending personal messages to be displayed on the screen.
“We are excited to be able to offer our venues the option of using the Txtstation mobile texting service as we continue to explore and develop the newest technologies that enhance the live event experience,” said Mark Stross, Executive Vice President of Technology Development, ANC Sports Enterprises.
The Txtstation Mobile Marketing platform will be immediately available to all ANC partner venues.
