(Cambridge, Canada--August 19, 2013) Bannister Lake and NextComputing team up to provide Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) Ltd. with portable broadcast graphics workstations running BL Score Bug, a powerful real-time scoring and game status display system for live sports broadcasts.

MLSE is using BL Score Bugs for home game coverage at the Air Canada Centre as well as away games for the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and the NBA’s Toronto Raptors, throughout the season.

Together, Bannister Lake and NextComputing deliver simultaneous SD and HDTV graphics, extensive broadcast-quality layouts, support for 3D animations and transitions, game titling elements, statistics, standings, scores, and clocks, all bundled into a convenient grab-and-go mobile workstation package.

“The Radius mobile graphics system is a broadcast graphics powerhouse. It offers all the power of a large rack mount system in a convenient, compact chassis. Easy to set up, easy to break down, and easy to move quickly to the next game without compromising on graphic power or quality,” stated Danny Ljubisic, Director of Business Development at Bannister Lake.

NextComputing Radius workstations deliver portable power. These lightweight systems are field tested for broadcast reliability by some of the largest sports broadcasters. Their modular design makes upgrading easy and affordable, and their small form-factor chassis is easier and less expensive to transport than traditional tower or rack servers.

“It’s no longer necessary to sacrifice performance and functionality for computer portability. Radius’ flexible, open-standards design means customers can run multiple software solutions on a single hardware platform anywhere, at any time,” stated Aaron Sherman, Director of Marketing at NextComputing.
