(Cambridge, Canada--October 24, 2013) Sportsnet is capitalizing on the tight integration between Bannister Lake’s Super Ticker solution and Ross Video’s XPression platform for its broadcast channels including Sportsnet 360, Ontario, ONE, Pacific, West, East, and World.
XPression is Ross Video’s next-generation real-time motion graphics platform for 2D and 3D workflows. Together, XPression and Super Ticker provide Sportsnet with a robust, multi-channel, multi-user, and multi-platform content management and broadcast solution that delivers diverse sports coverage. Sportsnet’s eye-catching graphics include breaking news, highlights, scores, statistics, analysis, and more in a fast-paced format 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
BL Super Ticker offers Sportsnet the ultimate centralized workflow experience: simultaneous collaboration coupled with a clean, intuitive interface, limitless output and independent content zones.
Sportsnet’s stunning graphics highlight in-game statistics, total and favorite game odds, and news stories with media and video for each sport through GPI commands and Super Ticker automation triggering,” said Georg Hentsch, President of Banister Lake. “Our ‘design once and repurpose often model’ empowers graphics teams to design in a flexible environment and populate entire shows for reuse across regions.”
XPression’s intuitive template-based workflows and Super Ticker’s content reuse model completely separates graphics creation from content management for dynamic graphics updates. Sportsnet is free to blend automated and manually entered content together for custom editorial without restrictions, and distribute content easily to multiple output devices, including broadcast players, web, and mobile.
