To Bring Sport History To Life
|September 24, 2009 – Richmond, British Columbia, Canada
– Empower Technologies
and The BC Sports Hall of Fame
are pleased to announce the addition of a new interactive feature designed to celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of BC's athletes and teams.
Visitors to the Hall of Fame will use the INSPIRATION KIOSK to relive exceptional moments in BC Sport history. Some of the moments highlighted in the INSPIRATION KIOSK include: the 1954 Miracle Mile, the 1979 Vancouver Whitecaps, the 1994 Vancouver Canucks and much more. The INSPIRATION KIOSK is located at the front entrance of the BC Sports Hall of Fame and is one more way in which we Honour the Past and Inspire the Future. The BC Sports Hall of Fame is grateful to Empower Technologies, a high tech company based in Richmond , BC , for taking this idea and making it a reality.
“Empower is very pleased to have been selected by the BC Sports Hall of Fame when they were looking for a new generation of interactive kiosks to showcase their stories of sport through their extensive collection of artifacts and archival images of sport in BC. The INSPIRATION KIOSK is a state of the art interactive system using RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) technology and Empower's iSign S1000 digital media player. The S1000 is fanless (no noise pollution), low power and generates little heat, making the system the greenest unit you can find. The BC Sports Hall of Fame has taken initiative to be the first museum of its kind to implement this display technology. The project is a true partnership and illustrates how technology can assist in bringing sport history to life.” said Paul Leung, CEO of Empower Technologies.
