MONTREAL, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - At this week's TOUR Championships presented by Coca-Cola, Kangaroo Media will be offering attendees the ultimate personalized handheld multimedia fan experience. Spectators will have the opportunity to use the Kangaroo TV handheld devices to access, in real time, a comprehensive suite of video content, tournament statistics and player data from anywhere on the course. This will be the first event of the 50-event, 4-year partnership announced between Kangaroo Media and the PGA TOUR earlier this year.
Users of the Kangaroo devices will have the best of both worlds: they will be able to experience the live play and excitement of the tournament from the East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, while tapping into the rich live video coverage, high-quality video clips and comprehensive data feeds that are typically characteristic of TV viewing. The video handheld enables fans to personalize their viewing, bringing them even closer to the action and their favorite players from anywhere on the course. In all, more than 2500 devices will be used daily throughout the 4-day tournament as part of a sponsorship agreement negotiated with MasterCard(R).
"Teaming up with MasterCard and being part of the PGA TOUR Playoffs is certainly one of our business highpoints in 2009. More than anything, it confirms our position as a leader in fan experience for golf and our recognized ability to provide sponsors with proven business value and fans with a unique and enjoyable on-course experience," says Robert Mimeault, President and CEO of Kangaroo Media.
