Netco Sports launches debut second screen European Hippodrome app
Hippodrome Paris Vincennes with its capacity of 40,000 and free WiFi is primarily used for horse races. Now Netco Sports has developed an app dedicated to horseracing fans that gives all Hippodrome’s visitors a unique experience by providing them with an interactive tool to track an ongoing race in real-time.
This new app will serve visitors as a complete guide and works in two formats. In the first one, it doesn’t matter where you are right now; you can always access all statistics and history about the horse, its jockey, his career, last results and more.
The second format is accessible only from the racecourse and provides users with additional features. With its video section and using state-of-the-art multi-cam technology, this app will enable users to watch races video replays from different cameras and unique angles circling around the race, as well as review all past races and enjoy shots from the new WireCam cable camera.
Also there will be Beacons Solution deployed in the Hippodrome in order to interact with visitors, analyse spectators flows and assess their behaviour.
The goal of this app is to enhance the user experience, to make them travel and discover Paris Vincennes – thereby increasing the fan base.
Fans can enjoy interactive features and ‘Like’ their preferred horse; the results of the vote will be displayed on the giant screen in real-time. A complete stats centre with graphical data will help newcomers and more experienced visitors better understand the race in a more interactive way, says Netco.
