James Madison University boosts online sports site with XOS Network
James Madison University Athletics and XOS Technologies partnered to produce a significant upgrade to JMUSports.com, the Dukes’ official Web site. The upgraded site launched July 1.
Officials of the university, located in Harrisonburg, VA, said the Web site’s most interactive addition was MadiZone, a branded broadband video channel featuring live and archived games, events, press conferences and other content. MadiZone includes exclusive access to special reports, coach and student-athlete profiles and a monthly “Dukes Insider” variety show spotlighting the entire athletic department. Beyond multimedia, MadiZone subscribers gain access to expanded game analysis, editorials and print content not available to all JMUSports.com users.
Additional elements of the new Web site include a revamped online bookstore, an online ticket marketplace featuring real-time seating, stadium views and ordering functionality, and Pictopia, where fans can view and order Dukes’ action photography from current games, classic JMU images, stadium views and other archived favorites.
XOS Technologies specializes in coaching solutions, facilities design and integration, XOS Network Interactive Fan Services and XOS Total Ticketing & Donor Management, which help teams and leagues integrate video, data and fan management technologies. The company serves more than 480 clients representing more than 900 teams in the NFL, AFL, CFL, NBA, WNBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, NAIA, NCAA and NASCAR.
