Screach makes digital signage at Wembley Stadium interactive

Screach at Wembley

UPDATED! We were very pleased with how the The Rugby Football League Screach experience went at Wembley, as were the RFL. Here’s Screach on the day during its Wembley debut.

RFL Marketing Manager, Phil William said : “The fans really engaged with Screach and by integrating video into the quiz it really brought the experience to life. We were very happy with the way Screach worked and will consider utilising the technology at some of our other events.” 

Screach is making its Wembley debut this weekend as the Rugby Football League use our interactive app to enhance the half time experience for fans at the Carnegie Cup Final.

Fans of Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors will be able to download the Screach app and take part in a half time quiz testing their rugby knowledge. The half time quiz will be displayed on the 13x8m screen in Wembley Stadium for all to see. Fans will then be able to watch famous rugby clips on the big screen and then answer a question relating to the clip by choosing from the multiple choice answers that appear within the Screach app on their smart device, creating a two way interaction.

Two winners will be automatically selected, based on how quickly they answered and how many questions they answered correctly, and will then see their Facebook profile image appear on the digital screen for the whole crowd to see.

The RFL is also using Screach as a way to deliver a reward to fans for interacting. Everyone that takes part in the Screach half time quiz will be entered into a prize draw for two VIP Hospitality packages for the Gillette Four Nations double header in Wembley this November.

We’re very excited to have Screach at one of the world’s most famous sporting venues. It’s a fantastic example of how interactive technology is changing the digital-out-of-home arena and really bringing something innovative and engaging to users.

Screach is perfect for his kind of environment and is bringing a new level of entertainment to a traditional sporting event.

The RFL Carnegie Cup will take place on Saturday 27 August at Wembley Stadium.

New to Screach: Instant Chat Experience

Our Experience Wizard, Michael Crosby, has been busy building a brand new experience for clients to take advantage of. Read about the features that your consumers could enjoy with ‘Screach Me’…

Tell us about the new Screach experience that you have created?

It’s called ‘Screach Me’ and it’s allows users to chat instantly. It’s evolved a lot from its initial concept because as we began building it, we started to realise that it had a lot more capabilities that we’d initially thought.

It lets you connect with people around you, be it in a social, leisure, or business capacity. All you have to do is enter the relevant code into your Screach app and then connect with Screach through Facebook when prompted. After that you’ll be given options as to who you’d like to pair up with, so if the experience was being used to assist with speed dating you’d select either male or female, or if it was being used at a conference perhaps you’d select ‘venture capitalist’ or someone relevant to that event.

Once you’ve tapped in who you would like to meet, Screach will begin to ‘pairing’ whereby it selects relevant people to connect you with. During this process, if you’re displaying the experience on a digital screen you’ll be able to watch everyone being paired up. Next you’ll be able to see the Facebook profile image of the person you’ve been paired with and you’ll be asked to select whether you would like to chat to this person. If you tap ‘yes’ then you’ll open a chat client within the app which allows you to chat in real time to the person you’ve connected with.

We’ll also be adding features so that you can save the other person’s details if you wish, such as a business card for example. You’ll also have the control to decide how long people get to chat before they are paired with a new person too.

What features does this experience have that we haven’t seen before?

The main thing is the chat client. There was a similar chat feature used in a past experience but it was a public chat whereby all chat comments made were shown publicly in a feed. The new chat however,  allows private conversations and the chance to chat with different people one after another. All discussions will also be shown in a similar way to how iPhone messages are displayed.

The chat all takes place in real time and it works really well. I’ve been testing it and chatting to some of our team in Romania and it worked perfectly. It’s a very exciting feature because it shows off more of Screach’s capabilities. All of our previous experiences have included interactions that were phone to screen, screen to phone but ‘Screach Me’ allows phone to phone interactions too.

Who is going to love this experience?

It’s perfect for big conferences as it is a really powerful tool for assisting with networking. It could also work really well as a speed dating tool, basically it’s great for any occasion where you want to want to help people connect.

We’ve already been chatting to some organisations that love it so it’s great that there is a buzz around it and people can see its huge potential.

You can take a look at the below images of ‘Screach Me’ to see how it all works…
