The Jacks are well into the 2017 - 2018 schedule and new upgrades provide added entertainment to fans in the arena as well as to those watching online.
The Odessa Jackalopes recently completed renovations in their home arena in Odessa, Texas. Ector Coliseum now sports a new video board and upgraded video production system. The new system features a NewTek production solution that is able to switch cameras, playback audio and video clips as well as queue up graphics for lower thirds, animations or full screen content. Numerous crowd prompts can be played from the system, engaging fans throughout their games. In addition to upgrading the video control room components, the cameras were also upgraded to High Definition Sony cameras. One of the cameras is outfitted with an MSG wireless video solution to capture fan shots and unique angles of game play. The second camera, which is the main camera, follows the action and is connected to the control room via SDI cabling.
The league's streaming service, HockeyTV, also benefited from the upgrades as now the Jackalopes are able to stream their games live to viewers around the country in High Definition!
