New York Mets Run With Ross For New HD Control Room

Ross Video has announced that the New York Mets have invested in Ross live production technologies for the new Citi Field HD control room.
Tim Gunkel, Senior Director, Marketing Production, New York Mets, said: "We did an industry wide search for HD switchers and servers as part of our new control room design, and Ross offered the best feature set and value. Ross understands the unique requirements of stadium productions and provides outstanding after sale support.
"The Vision QMD/X Digital Production Switcher with MultiPanel control capabilities along with the SoftMetal Video Server (SMS) will play a key role in delivering Mets fans the ultimate game day experience at the Mets' new world class home."
Citi Field will make its official debut with the regular season home opener on April 13, 2009, however, the new control room will be completed and ready for the full production of two pre-season exhibition games against the Boston Red Sox on April 3 and 4.
David Ross, Chief Executive Officer, Ross Video, said: "We have had a long term relationship with the New York Mets and we're honoured to be a part of the new Citi Field stadium control room.
"Vision's architecture lends itself well to managing multi-screen productions and has proved to be very popular in the sports stadium market. SoftMetal video server technology is fast becoming the stadium standard for clip and graphic playout."
The new ball park will feature natural grass and capacity for approximately 42,000 fans. A contoured seating configuration will bring spectators closer to the field on all levels to provide optimal sightlines for a more intimate and entertaining experience throughout the park.
