Omnivex Manages Tournament’s DOOH

Gail Chiasson, North American Editor

Concord, Ontario-based Omnivex Corporation’s Moxie software was used at the Canadian Show Jumping Tournament last week to manage a network of informational display boards for the second consecutive year.

The Omnivex software managed digital content on LCD screens at the Caledon Equestrian Park in Palgrave, ON. to provide riders and spectators with real-time scoring and competition results.

Caledon Equestrian Park is the future equestrian venue for the 2015 Pan American Games/Para Pan American Games.

For the CSJT, with total prize money of $200,000 ($100,000 for the Canada Cup sector), screens were positioned in the VIP area, Champions Club lounge and in the public pavilion to present live video streaming from the rings and real time results as the competition took place. They also displayed schedule information and other important messages to the many spectators and visitors at the venue.

Omnivex, in conjunction with Ram Equestrian, was the presenting sponsor of Phase 3 of the Caledon Cup. Phase 3 awarded $50,000 in prize money to the top ten horse and rider combinations. Among those competing were Canadian Olympic silver medal team members Ian Millar, Mac Cone and Jill Henselwood, as well as Yann Candele and Jonathon Millar, both members of the Canadian Show Jumping Team for the upcoming 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky.

Omnivex software is used to manage display networks in numerous and varied sporting venues. Notable recent deployments include Portland’s Rose Garden Arena, Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment’s Air Canada Centre and at the FIVB Volleyball World Championships in Norway.

“Omnivex software is ideal for managing digital signage networks in sporting venues due to the fact that the software functions in real time and makes managing a large scale network of any type much more simplified,” says Jeff Collard, president of Omnivex. The software provides customers with the tools to display dynamic, eye-catching content to their audiences, when and where it is desired.

The tournament helped raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Over the past years of the CSJT, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised and numerous children have been awarded special equestrian wishes.

The 2010 CSJT, which ended Sept. 26, had more than 800 horses competing for prize money.

Since 1986, the Caledon Equestrian Park has been operated by Equestrian Management Group in partnership with the Town of Caledon and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority. Set against the backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment, numerous Olympic, World Championship and Pan American Games selection trials for Canada’s show jumping and dressage teams have been held there.

Omnivex is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and provider of enterprise-level software for digital signage networks. It made DailyDOOH’s Top !0 List in 2010 for the first time.
