FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apple® technology is literally changing the game for the National Football League and the Denver Broncos. The new iPad® allows for digital distribution of video highlights, play formations, game statistics, competitor review, coach and player note exchange and more. Premium protective case manufacturer OtterBox®, headquartered in Fort Collins, Colo., has partnered with their hometown team for the 2012 season as the “Official Protector of the Denver Broncos’ Digital Playbook.”
As early adopters of the modern methodology, the Broncos are among the first in the league to deploy devices to all players and coaches. The team will use the PlayerLync application, supported by Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network. But the real advantage is what they use to protect their delicate digital playbooks. Each team iPad will be outfitted with an OtterBox Defender Series® case – known globally as the premium protective solution for technology.
“The Denver Broncos are proud to partner with OtterBox on this project,” said Denver Broncos Senior Vice President of Business Development Mac Freeman. “The adoption of the digital playbook represents a positive step into modern technology for the Broncos. OtterBox is the perfect protector for this new team asset.”
The switch from 500-page printouts to 64-gigabyte iPads will greatly decrease printer and paper costs each season. Simply keeping the devices protected with OtterBox brings a cost savings to the team as well.
“I have confidence our team won’t fumble on the field but if it happens to these tablets in the locker room or on the way to the airport, OtterBox will protect the game,” said OtterBox Director of Marketing Brian Ewing. “The idea is for OtterBox to become known in the world of football as another piece of essential, protective gear. Players come to training camp at the beginning of the season and pick up their helmet, pads, playbook and OtterBox.”
Built upon fundamentals of hard work, innovation and perseverance, OtterBox is a leader in the production of premier protective solutions for global handheld manufacturers, wireless carriers and distributors.
Incorporating creativity and cutting-edge design into every product, OtterBox creates sleek and durable cases that offer reliable device protection to complement any lifestyle.
