SVG Year in Review: August
August was highlighted by the opening kickoff at New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey. The new home of the New York Giants and New York Jets features a new approach in scoreboard displays with four massive displays in the corners of the stadium, IP content delivery and display control systems, and much more. Later that season Verizon produced the Giants-Patriots game in 3D for its New York- and Boston-based customers. In addition, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, NBC Sports’ Sunday Night Football, and ESPN’s Monday Night Football each entered the 2010 NFL regular season with a host of new production tools, while NFL Films offered up its third season of Hard Knocks on HBO. The NFL’s repositioning of umpires also required networks to rethink their audio techniques and microphone placements during game coverage.
And in 3D news Turner Sports successfully produced 3D coverage from the PGA Championship in Whistling Straits, WI, while also delivering top-quality HDTV coverage (along with CBS Sports) and online coverage.
