MONTREAL—The Scotttrade Center in St. Louis, home to the St. Louis Blues, went through some offseason adjustments leading up to the 2016-2017 NHL season, installing video equipment from Grass Valley into its video control room.

Among the new gear that was added to the arena’s system was the 3M/E Karrera K-Frame S-series production switcher; three LDX 86 WorldCam cameras for HD/3G acquisition; an LDX 86 XtremeSpeed camera for 6X HD and 1X/3X 3G acquisition; an LDX C80 compact WorldCam for remote applications; XCU Universe XF base stations; six Densité 3 Frames for housing audio and video signal processing modules; eight Kaleido-Modular-X multiviewers; two K2 Dyno Replay systems with ShareFlex capability; an NVision 8500 Hybrid Series router with 144x144 matrix; and an NV9000 controller.

The St. Louis Blues are also anticipating upgrading its video and LED boards, for which it expects to utilize the Karrera K-Frame switcher to sync their video boards, ice projection systems, lighting systems and more.

According to Grass Valley, the installation process took three months.
