LOS ANGELES -- When the Los Angeles Kings face off against the St. Louis Blues tonight at STAPLES Center for their home opener, fans will experience the action in an entirely new and interactive way. Leading-edge custom digital video technology solutions deployed by Verizon and Cisco will more closely connect fans to what’s happening on the ice while providing a wide array of information about onsite amenities and services available to them.

Owned and operated by AEG, STAPLES Center is one of the premier sports and entertainment venues in the world and hosts four major sports franchises, more than 250 events and four million visitors annually. A leader in innovation, AEG recognized a need to upgrade STAPLES Center’s electronic capabilities to better service its increasingly tech-savvy fan base while creating new streams of revenue for the venue, sponsors and partners. By collaborating with Cisco to create a Connected Sports and Entertainment environment, and with Verizon to design and build the essential technology foundation, AEG has given the venue a technology makeover that keeps it in a class of the best and most innovative facilities in the world.
