USA’s Major League Baseball arrived to the UK for the first time with a two-game series on June 29 and 30 at the London Stadium. The New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox offered two games whose in-stadium production was handled by Van Wagner Productions.
Ross Video’s XPression graphics platform and XPression Tessera rendering solution were implemented into the LED system of the venue. XPression and Xpression Tessera powered the mid-tier ribbon bords, while the latter, along with the Carbonite Mosaic solution, were responsible for the main screen graphics. Rocket Surgery, Ross Video’s in-house creative services division, programmed and fabricated the graphic templates for the boards.
Ryan Kehn, Creative Director with VWSE, talks about the production: “We were excited to have the Ross team join us in London. The Ross team has been a critical component to ensure a successful video board presentation, from technical integration to creative support to in-show execution. Using a combination of XPression, Tessera and Carbonite Mosaic gave us the flexibility we needed to pre-build our show and roll-in to a new venue with a minimum integration footprint. Their efforts contributed to an authentic, first-class game day experience.”
