Ross Video’s XPression + PIERO enhance NBC Sports workflows
NBC Regional Sports Networks, part of NBCUniversal Local, has selected Ross Video’s XPression real-time motion graphics system and PIERO sports graphics analysis platform to enhance the networks’ operations and production.
According to NBC, the combination of Ross Video products enables the five regional sports networks (RSNs) to deliver compelling, visually rich productions while improving workflows.
With XPression, the RSNs can use one tool to manage all on-screen and studio-wall graphics. Ross Video’s Rocket Surgery Creative Services will convert the RSNs’ existing graphics packages and rebuild eye-catching graphics within XPression.
Kevin Cottam, VP of Sports & Live Events at Ross Video, said, “We are thrilled that NBC Sports Regional Networks is working with our team to boost their workflow operations and to help engage with their audiences through our powerful and flexible graphics and sports-analysis tools.
“Modern sports broadcasters expect these tools to work together seamlessly, and the modern sports fan expects more from their coverage. With the combination of XPression and PIERO, the RSNs now have a best-in-class solution that will present real-time data and cutting-edge graphic analysis to break down the biggest moments of a game.”
Several of the NBC Sports Regional Networks are also adopting the PIERO sports graphics analysis platform for state-of-the-art analysis and telestration. The platform breaks down key moments with graphical analysis, real-time data-driven graphics, unique shots and perspectives, and allows talent to use large touchscreen displays on studio sets to add telestration to the telecast on-air.
