Why the NHL needs to add more digital scanners
Digital scanners are the latest innovation to emerge from the NHL.
While they have become more prevalent with the advent of digital video, they have remained largely limited to the league’s official websites and have not been used in all but a handful of games.
That changed with the introduction of the NHL Digital Video System, a system that uses an HD video camera to capture all of the action from a single screen.
NHL Digital Videos are also available for purchase through the NHL Store.
Now the league has partnered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to launch a new digital scanning system that allows players to scan their own faces and hands with a single click.
The new system uses an Intel Pentium D3100 processor, a 16GB SD card, and two 32GB Samsung Galaxy S4s with Intel HD Graphics 615 graphics chips.
It is set to launch later this year and will be priced at $399.
The league’s digital scanning technology will also be used by the NHL’s video-on-demand service, NHL.com, as well as the NHL App, which will allow users to watch live game replays and highlights.
