Esports Stadium turns to TSL Products for broadcast control
Esports Stadium Arlington in Texas needed to establish a broadcast workflow suitable for its modern, 100,000-square-foot event space. The stadium’s integrator suggested adding TSL Products’ control system into the facility’s workflow to achieve a universal broadcast control surface.
“We needed an advanced and user-friendly system to transition between live hosts and various player cameras to help organise who should be live at each point of the event,” said Corey Dunn, VP of broadcast for the stadium. “Operating with TSL’s advanced control system benefits both the production crew and on-camera talent. From the hosts at the desk transitioning from camera-to-camera to our production crew knowing who is live and when – the integration of TSL into our workflow doesn’t just impact camera operators, but the entire production.”
The stadium uses TSL Products’ advanced control to significantly improve its workflow, especially with the multitude of camera angles required in esports productions. In addition to the sheer volume of inputs and potential places that the technical director needs to locate and select for preview/program, the fast-paced and ever-changing ‘action movie’ nature of the environment also lends itself to a dedicated advanced control system.
Additionally, many eSports workflows require interfacing a considerable amount of both traditional broadcast as well as IT and COTS equipment to run properly. Using Virtual Panel Interfaces, the stadium can create an easily configurable process to customise these operations with intuitive, drag-and-drop controls.
