In this CIO Sessions interview, SF Giants CIO Bill Schlough outlines his multiple roles, managing back-end operations for the business of Giants baseball and AT&T Park and applying technology to improve profits and player performance and development with sophisticated digital video systems. He also talks about the free wireless access provided throughout the one million square-foot baseball park and contactless, RF-based concession payment terminals that will pave the way for a wallet-less experience.

He also shows off the new $3 million, high-definition scoreboard that stands 103 feet long and about 21 feet wide, and delivers what he called "eye popping content" to give fans a visual experience similar to what they can get with a high-end home theater system--just in time for the 2007 All Star game.
