Buffalo Bills choose solid-state storage with P2

The NFL’s Buffalo Bills recently purchased Panasonic P2 HD production equipment to shoot game-day features that will be shown on the team’s 82ft by 35ft in-stadium HD video display. The same programming that airs in the facility’s suites and club areas will be carried on the team’s closed-circuit cable network.

Bills Television Network (BTN) purchased a Panasonic P2 HD production package that includes the AG-HPX500 2/3in shoulder-mount P2 HD camcorder, the AJ-HPM110 P2 Mobile recorder/player, AG-HPG10 P2 Gear recorder, and the AJ-PCD20 five-slot P2 drive.

BTN will also use the tapeless HPX500 HD camcorder to shoot widescreen content for the team’s Web site, www.buffalobills.com. Ultimately, BTN will produce HD programming for its in-season TV shows.

The HPX500 will also be used to shoot halftime features during the pre-season. The P2 HD material will be edited on Avid Media Composers and then transferred via FTP to a central Ross Video SMS server, which will feed the HD display and in-stadium TV service.
