PHOENIX, Ariz. (July 9, 2019) – The Howard Hughes Corporation®, developer of the Summerlin® master planned community, the Las Vegas Ballpark®, and owner of the Las Vegas Aviators®, announced today a multi-year contract with Skyview Networks, a specialist in audio play-by-play solutions, for its inventory management and live read capture software, AdView. The Aviators, the city’s professional Triple-A baseball team of the Pacific Coast League and affiliate of the Oakland Athletics, is the third Las Vegas sports organization to upgrade to Skyview Networks’ inventory system, which is tailored specifically for the complexity of play-by-play sports broadcasts.
According to Don Logan, President and Chief Operations Officer of the Las Vegas Aviators, the new system is a game changer and an exciting addition to Las Vegas Ballpark. “We are pleased to partner with Skyview Networks and bring a new level of technology to the stadium while we better serve our advertisers and various partners.”
The AdView Inventory Management system is uniquely tailored to fit the needs of the franchise, designed to consolidate and streamline processes from broadcast and billing to scheduling and affidavit generation. With its advertising inventory now fully managed in-house, the Aviators front office now has real-time online accessibility to their broadcast schedules, sellout reports and revenue.

With Skyview’s live read capture, the Aviators can now manage their on-air advertiser mentions as a standard commercial unit, allowing their traffic department to oversee live read scheduling for the entire season, as well as catalogue them by time, date and advertiser in a customized online database. The live reads can be quickly downloaded and built into the affidavit billing, serving as proof of performance system for advertising clients.
