Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 21, 2017
Fantag, a pioneer in mobile video technology, announced today that it will formally unveil its groundbreaking mobile video platform with Sacramento Republic FC -- the region’s premier professional soccer club -- at its game on September 23 versus Oklahoma City Energy FC. The Republic FC game will be the first opportunity for fans to download the Fantag app (available in the Apple App Store) and integrate it into their match day experience.
“This is a unique milestone in the industry and a big day for Republic FC fans,” said Ben Gumpert, COO of Sac Soccer & Entertainment Holdings. “The Fantag platform allows our fans to view replays in real-time and at their control, while also giving them the opportunity to share these moments with their friends instantaneously and in a seamless manner. From our inception, Republic FC has been focused on delivering great fan experiences, and the Fantag platform is another step in that effort.”

Fantag, which launched earlier this year, enables producers and spectators at live events to capture, relive, and share their favorite moments with the simple touch of the screen and without having to record the video themselves. With a patented platform that synchronizes mobile phones with in-stadium camera feeds, Fantag is engaging a number of markets where producers can augment the ROI on their existing video while allowing fans to relive and share the moments that matter most to them.
Platform serves both fans and their teams
Throughout the summer of 2017, Fantag has been testing its platform at a number of youth and high school sports venues to ready itself for its fall debut.
“The feedback we have received throughout the summer has been inspiring,” said Fantag founder and CEO Brian Dombrowski. “We’ve identified a need that many fans have to capture and share the moments that matter most to them. At the same time, we discovered the need that so many teams have -- whether they are youth, high school, college, professional -- for providing the special content their fans are demanding. We are proud to formally unveil the platform with the Sacramento Republic, which will help us signal our entry into the large and diverse sports video market.”
Monetizing the “unmonetizable”
News of the debut comes at the heels of two announcements regarding Fantag’s momentum in high-school and professional sports. In April, the company announced that it is partnering with Telestream, a leader in video streaming technology, to deliver the Fantag experience at pro and high school games. In the same announcement, Fantag disclosed that it would pilot the Fantag-Telestream solution later this year with the Republic FC and other teams. More recently, Fantag announced the launch of the Fantag Videographer Academy (FVA), a series of workshops on the art and science of modern sports videography for Northern California high school students. The Academy will help Fantag partners to expand their video coverage with videographers trained to capture moments from multiple angles at games.
“We’re in a strong position to help teams provide amazing experiences for their fans -- not just with technology but with people power as well,” said Dombrowski. “The FVA will help teams provide fans with highlights of plays that are treasured but might never get broadcast. We can help teams monetize the unmonetizable, and make more moments matter than ever before.”
Fantag, a pioneer in mobile video technology, enables producers and spectators of live events to capture, replay, and share their favorite moments with a simple tap of the finger on their mobile devices, and without having to record the video themselves. With a patented platform that synchronizes those devices with cameras in the arena, Fantag is poised to engage a number of large markets – beginning with youth, high school, collegiate, and professional sports – where people everywhere are looking to relive the moments that matter most to them.
With offices in Silicon Valley and Sacramento, Fantag's advisers and investors comprise leaders at sports and events organizations such as StubHub; former executives from Apple, NBC and Telestream; members of the ownership group of the NBA's Sacramento Kings; and Moneta Ventures, a fund focused on early-stage companies.
