Ross CG units help the Atlanta Braves make the right XPression
The Atlanta Braves have installed Ross Video’s new XPression, a real-time 2D/3D character generator, in the control room of the newly constructed Gwinnett Stadium — home of the Gwinnett Braves (Triple A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves) in Lawrenceville, GA.
The team chose XPression for its 3D features and real-time data (stats) integration. The Braves also plan to install XPression this summer at Turner Field (the major league team’s park).
The Ross XPression is a 3D CG that offers real-time layering and animation of 3D models, 2D and 3D text, rendered animations, live video and Web content. Designed for the graphic designer, programmer, and on-air operator, XPression makes it easy to create, manage and get content to air qucikly. In addition, the XPression can convert real-time data into 3D graphics and animations with live connections to spreadsheets, databases, RSS feeds, newsroom editorial systems and other live data sources.
