Ralph Engelstad Kiosk

1 min read

A kiosk application designed for fans at the Ralph Engelstad Arena to view the roster, profiles, highlights, interviews, championships and awards of the 2013-2014 men and women's University of North Dakota Hockey teams.

Created as Software Engineer at Intouch Interactive.

About this project

This project was requested by the customer to provide information for the upcoming 2013-2014 season of the University of North Dakota Hockey. Kiosks were distributed throughout the Ralph Engelstad Arena for fans to utilize.

The primary user experience was a single page application (SPA) coupled with JavaScript routing to facilitate navigation. A custom keyboard was implemented in HTML and JavaScript versus utilizing SiteKiosk's keyboard functionality. This made for better integration with data-entry sections. HTML5's video enhancements made creating an integrated video playback a breeze. Pages were relatively straightforward and Intouch's in-house framework made creating an experience that adhered to the overall design.

A lightweight custom CMS was utilized to allow the customer to manipulate roster data and other player information sections. Uploading sections allowed for pushing image and video slideshow files to their respective directories.
