Winning Rugby World Cup and Gaelic Football All-Ireland final weekend for Ross Video
The weekend of September 18-20 saw the kick off of Rugby World Cup at Twickenham Stadium in London, while in Dublin 82,500 fans packed into Croke Park to enjoy the GAA Football All-Ireland Championship Finals. The common thread connecting these two showcase events? Live video production powered by Ross Video.
At Twickenham the stadium’s video screens were being driven by Ross Video’s Carbonite production switcher. Croke Park also uses the Carbonite switcher in its Ross Production Suite and partners it with the Xpression graphics platform and Inception social media management software.
Commenting on the Croke Park system, Kevin Moore from Eurotek (Ross Video’s principal partner in the Republic of Ireland) noted how it improves the match day experience: “At the All-Ireland Final the live OB feeds were being sent to the displays in the stadium’s public areas and suites. The scoreboard content was run from Xpression using custom DashBoard panels and the fans really got the best of both worlds – they could enjoy the game live on the pitch but also get the benefit of the replays, close-up shots and social media content that viewers at home enjoy.”
David Dowling, Ross Video’s Director of Sales for EMEA, said “Ross Video is rapidly becoming synonymous with solutions that help simplify live production and drive down the cost of live content. We’re very proud to be associated with both Croke Park and Twickenham and it’s great to see fans from all over the world enjoying the content we’ve helped to produce.”
