“We’re using this information to understand the impact of various points of interest, and this information will allow us to not only think about long-term revenue strategies but also understand how to better engage with fans and what is most impactful to them.”
“WaitTime’s crowd management solution, fueled by Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel SSDs in combination with the Cisco Meraki smart camera video solution, offers the Dodgers real-time insights about crowd dynamics to better understand how fans are spending their time at the game, resulting in decisions based on business intelligence rather than assumptions,”
WaitTime uses the Cisco Meraki network with machine vision cameras, Intel Xeon Scalable processors and its own patented A.I. algorithms to assess and analyze crowd location and elements of the fan experience. The Dodgers can combine this information with its own datasets to make objective determinations about which activations are working or not.
