RDS Canada chooses Orad's TrackVision to enhance viewing experience
Orad Hi-Tec Systems will be providing RDS Canada with its HD/SD First Down Line (FDL) football enhancement solution, TrackVision. The solution will be used for the entire 2008 Canadian Football League (CFL) season.
RDS, Canada's French language sports broadcaster, chose Orad's FDL solution because of its new enhancements and features, including automatic calculation and display of tied-to-the-field down numbers as well as yards to go, scores, teams and sponsor logos.
Orad's FDL system is HD/SD switchable and can be used from the OB van as well as from the studio.
RDS will also benefit from FDL's automatic detection of the camera setup, enabling faster operation in the studio environment, quick adjustment for line width and opacity, specific game folders to save different venues' settings and field crown adjustment capabilities for accurate first-down line display.
