Rough Rider Stadium Video Production Upgrade - Saginaw, TX

As the football season approaches, schools around the country are gearing up for the upcoming season.  Everyone knows Texas is serious about its football, and they carry over that same mentality into the technology that supports its football programs.  MSG had the pleasure of helping Saginaw High School upgrade their video production system in time for the upcoming football season. 

 

The upgrade included cleaning up the video production space and housing all equipment in a floor standing equipment rack.  Having all the gear located in one place helps with wiring, troubleshooting equipment, and allows the school to utilize all countertop and desk space.  The rack is completely wired and outfitted with casters, so that it can be rolled out for easy access. 

JVC cameras were added to replace their analog cameras, as well as a new MSG wireless video solution to capture all the action around the stadium.  

The system is supported by Blackmagic Design equipment which includes a 2Me switcher, a router and various converters. 

Their replay system was also replaced with a NewTek 3Play system that has the ability to record four angles of playback; two of which can be recorded simultaneously. 

 

A big addition to the upgrade was a second clips server to playback video clips and graphics to the video board.  A NewTek TriCaster was added to achieve this goal. The TriCaster has two powerful clip engines and endless graphic playback solutions built right in.  Not only will the TriCaster handle clips and graphics, but will also give Saginaw the ability to stream and record their production.  Demand for web content is constantly increasing, so this is a great solution to meet that demand. 

Saginaw High School will also be upgrading their video board / scoreboard in time for the upcoming football season, further improving the fan experience for next season!
