International Speedway Corporation has introduced FanVision, a platform it hopes will “redefine the live event experience for its legion of motorsports fans.”
The FanVision controller will provide exclusive at-track handheld access to live broadcast feeds, eight onboard cameras, official timing, data, statistics, as well as the ability to follow specific drivers, instant replays and digital radio scanner. The high-quality, 4.3-inch screen on the FanVision controller operates off a dedicated trackside network, eliminating downloading, buffering and no waiting. All the action arrives the moment it happens.
“ISC’s major motorsports facilities are dedicated to providing its guests the best experience in the industry,” stated ISC Chief Executive Officer Lesa France Kennedy. “FanVision rivals the technology you get at home with the benefit of experiencing the sport in person. It is only fitting that FanVision and its state-of-the art broadcast technology is introduced at the ‘World Center of Racing;’’ Daytona International Speedway.
In its debut at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series “Budweiser Shootout at Daytona” Saturday night, track officials saw a 40 percent rental increase over the FanView device that was available last year.
The new FanVision controller will be available for purchase or rent at FanVision and Racing Electronics haulers and kiosks, or online at www.fanvision.com. This new technology will be available at all ISC NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event weekends beginning at Daytona this week and ending with the season finale “Ford 400” at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 18.
