Manitoba Moose scores with DNF
True North Sports & Entertainment, owner of the Manitoba Moose hockey team, purchased and installed two ST300-DSR1K-T slow-motion controllers for the MTS Centre, located in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, in Canada. The team is using DNF’s controllers in its digital video production room for instant replays and slow-motion playback capability. The controllers provide quick and precise control of the facility’s four Sony DSR-DR1000 digital hard-disk recorders during Moose home games.
Four Sony DXC-D50 cameras capture all of the action on the ice, recording footage onto the four DSR-DR1000 stream-based hard-disk recorders. The ST300-DSR1K-T controllers allow operators to mark cue points on the fly and play back video instantly without disrupting the recording process. They also provide fast, easy, and reliable VTR-like control so operators can bring Moose fans instant replays and slow-motion playback of key plays via the arena’s main video screen, a full-color Daktronics ProStar LED display. Also included in the new system is a Ross Synergy 1-MLE video production switcher.
