Devils Bring in 15 Seconds of Fame This Season

Trying to excite the fans this season, the New Jersey Devils will be the first NHL team to use 15 Seconds of Fame, a personal video sharing experience.  If you were at the 2015-16 season finale last year, you might have been able to test it out during the pilot launch.

15 Seconds of Fame, allows video that was taken on jumbotrons and video boards to be shared with the person via an app that they can intern share on social media platforms. While the Devils’ are the first to adapt this new interactive technology, it will not be available at every game, but instead select games throughout the season.

The Devils have a long tradition of using new technology to gain fans with the most recent being the hologram projections on the ice, used in 2014.  While there has been criticism from hockey fans that using new technology is just a gimmick and are desperate attempts to build an ailing fan-base that suffered with a move to Newark, the Prudential Center was built to be cutting edge and use new technologies that fans will enjoy.

Really though, who wouldn’t want a video of themselves or their families on the big screen to cherish and share on their Facebook page?
