Fans connect with Cincinnati Reds heroes via kiosks |

Cincinnati Reds fans can look forward to a more interactive experience with their favorite players this baseball season. Three kiosks will allow them to conduct "virtual" interviews with their favorite players starting on opening day, March 31, at the Great American Ballpark.

Although Kiosk Information Systems manufactured the kiosks, nSixty developed the technology behind them, said Jason Blair of nSixty.

The kiosks allow fans to choose to interview a variety of Reds players, including Joey Votto, Scott Rolen, Jay Bruce, Jonny Gomes, Drew Stubbs and Bronson Arroyo and then share their videos via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter.

According to the nSixty website, the kiosks are equipped with a fullly automated video recording station, an easy-to-use touch-screen display and an instant upload and e-mail notification system ideal for providing on-the-spot video recording functions and lasting branding impressions.

Every user will also receive a coupon for discounted admission to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, and random winners will receive a free admission, Blair said.
