MX-400ST Stadium Edition

Stadium Display Controls

The MX-400ST software package complements existing in-house cable TV networks by merging HTML graphics with stadium video to create dynamic multimedia HDTV channels which can be tuned by one or all stadium TVs. With this system stadium TVs can be used for concession stand menu boards, crowd routing, welcome messages, game information, score boards, emergency and informational alerts, and digital signage without the added costs of a set top box, cat 5 wiring, or changes to the house cable TV coax network. The advertising features of the MX-400ST, combined with the low cost installation and quick start HTML presentation templates, provide a turnkey revenue generating solution. Stadiums TVs are quickly transformed from simple linear video monitors to dynamic multimedia displays containing game video, advertisements, game stats, time, temperature, weather, traffic, social media photos, stadium alerts, and of course the game score and other score board information. There's no need to learn a new content management and editing tool, our system is based upon standard web HTML. No special skills are required. Use our built in templates to get working quickly then modify the HTML to create the perfect presentation for any one or all TVs in your stadium. Add the West Pond RX units to the stadium TVs and the MX-400ST will manage each TVs display state, enable display specific alerts, choose the channel, and control the TV power.
