Robot cameras will capture Clippers, Kings fan reaction in Staples Center
The robots are coming … to take your picture at Staples Center.
During Clippers and Kings games next season, 12 robotic cameras installed throughout Staples Center will capture photos of fan reactions to major moments within the arena.
Fanpics, a San Diego-based company, has already installed their technology for San Diego State University basketball games and Los Angeles Galaxy soccer matches.
"We are always seeking methods to enhance the entertainment value of our overall in-venue, game day experience and Fanpics provides us with a very innovative way to do just that," said Staples Center president Lee Zeidman told the LA Business Journal. "At the same time, the system offers significant value for ongoing communication and marketing to our guests through data from fans using the platform and sharing their Fanpics photos."
The Lakers, however, have not yet signed up with Fanpics.
