Walt Disney World and HP recently unveiled the 165,000-square-foot newly named HP Field House at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. In addition to top Disney and HP executives, the unveiling ceremony featured NFL star Jason Witten and soccer player Mia Hamm, as well as ESPN Radio’s Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg. HP was also announced as the official imaging, printing, and PC partner of the complex.
The HP Field House, formerly known as the Milk House, has been a cornerstone of Wide World of Sports since its opening in 1997, and is a multi-purpose facility that can accommodate nearly any indoor sport. It has been upgraded with numerous HP enhancements, including touch-screen kiosks and a unique retail imaging area.
HP technology will allow fans and athletes to have a “hands on” sports experience throughout the 230-acre complex, including an internet-cafe experience at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill and the HP Photo Creation Center, where guests can download, design, and enhance photos and images from events, and can also print them out at an onsite retail location.
An upcoming feature that is currently in development at the sports complex is the use of handheld computers, which will allow guests and athletes the opportunity to collect on-field stats, as well as provide hospitality services and interactive park experiences. In addition, HP signage will also be added to the concession area throughout the venue.
