Ross Video implements its solutions to enhance the graphics capabilities of NBC Sports Regional Networks
Ross Video announces that NBC Sports Regional Networks selected its XPression real-time motion graphics system and PIERO sports graphics analysis platform.
This division of NBCUniversal Local has implemented these solutions to enhance the networks’ operations and production. This combination enables the five regional sports networks (RSNs) to use one tool to manage all on-screen and studio-wall graphics.
As mentioned, several of the NBC Sports Regional Networks will also be adopting the PIERO sports graphics analysis platform. The system combines video-based effects with 3D replays and virtual graphics.
The NBC Sports Regional Networks, which are NBC Sports Bay Area, NBC Sports Boston, NBC Sports California, NBC Sports Chicago and NBC Sports Philadelphia, provide live coverage of 12 NBA, NHL and MLB teams, totalling more than 1,500 games annually. In addition, the RSNs produce live gameday shows covering the NFL franchises in their markets.
When speaking about the partnership, Kevin Cottam, VP of Sports & Live Events at Ross Video, said, “We’re thrilled that NBC Sports Regional Networks is working with our team to boost their workflow operations and to help engage with their audiences through our powerful and flexible graphics and sports-analysis tools. Modern sports broadcasters expect these tools to work together seamlessly, and the modern sports fan expects more from their coverage. With the combination of XPression and PIERO, the RSNs now have a best-in-class solution that will present real-time data and cutting-edge graphic analysis to break down the biggest moments of a game.”
