VIZIONefx Enhances Syracuse University Football Wing thru Digital Signage

For Immediate Release:  January 23, 2013

BALDWINSVILLE, NY -- VIZIONefx, a Digital Network integrator based in Baldwinsville, NY, today announced it has expanded its relationship with Syracuse University Athletics. It recently installed its CAMPUSefx Broadcast Channel and VZN Touch, an interactive touch screen solution, in Syracuse University’s Iocolano-Petty Football Wing at Manley Field House. The Iocolano-Petty Football Wing is the home of Syracuse Football and houses a Hall of Fame lobby, team auditorium, locker rooms, a student-athlete lounge and cafeteria. 

As part of the project, VIZIONefx installed 10 unique flat-panel displays, as part of its CAMPUSefx platform, to be used as video footage stations. In addition, two individual VZN Touch kiosks were installed - one for a historical tribute to the #44, Syracuse Football’s iconic jersey number, and a second to highlight the myriad players who have gone on to compete in the National Football League (NFL).  

CAMPUSefx is a broadcast channel designed to distribute media content to television displays. In utilizing CAMPUSefx, televisions and displays become information-delivery vehicles for content and messaging. VZN Touch creates a dynamic engagement kiosk to interact with student-athletes, alumni, fans and visitors. Utilizing a beautiful HD touch screen display, VZN Touch allows users to easily navigate a direct portal to video clips, schedules, events, highlights, seating charts, wayfinding and historical information.
