Cisco and NHL expand technology partnership - Check Techvibes tomorrow to win a NHL Flip Camera

Posted by Rob Lewis

The NHL and Cisco announced today a multiyear renewal of their strategic partnership to feature Cisco technology solutions in key video-dependent areas such as hockey operations, business operations, marquee events and direct-to-consumer applications.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement at a press conference today in Palm Beach, Florida, and to media in New York City, Toronto and San Jose, through a Cisco TelePresence connection. The NHL's press conference marked the first time that a professional sports commissioner has utilized Cisco TelePresence technology to host a multi-city press conference.

The agreement is far-reaching and includes using Cisco's wireless and fixed networks optimized to power the NHL's communications and content delivery as well using Cisco TelePresence technology to drive collaboration, efficiencies at League sites.

From a consumer and fan perspective, the most exciting part of the announcement is the launch of new NHL Flip Video cameras. Beginning today, fans can choose their own official NHL Flip video camera with the NHL logo or a custom design from any one of the 30 NHL teams.

If you're a hockey fan, be sure to check back on Techvibes tomorrow as we'll be giving away a NHL Flip video camera as part of our Advent Calendar promotion. And if you win, you're be able to pick your favorite team.
