Ross Video Helps Deliver Landmark Baseball Event In London

News Image
A groundbreaking baseball event has been held in London with the help of sports production specialists Van Wagner Productions and production solution experts Ross Video.

The event saw Major League Baseball come to the UK for the first time, with two league titans, the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, facing off against each other at London Stadium.

The in-stadium production for the event, over 29-30 June, was handled by Van Wagner Productions. As part of the production, Ross Video's XPression graphics platform and XPression Tessera rendering solution – first seen running the enormous halo screen in the ceiling of Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz stadium – were integrated into London Stadium's LED system; XPression and XPression Tessera powered the mid-tier ribbon boards and both XPression Tessera and the Carbonite Mosaic solution powered the main screen graphics during the game. Stats driven graphic templates for the boards were programmed and fabricated by Rocket Surgery – Ross Video's in-house creative services division.

Commenting on the experience, Ryan Kehn, Creative Director with VWSE, is quick to acknowledge the support received from the Ross Video team. "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."

Ross Video and Van Wagner Productions helped create a thrilling experience for a packed stadium, with the Yankees overcoming their Boston rivals by 17-13 and 12-8.
