Live Broadcast Studio for Rock Hill H.S.

We have worked with our system integrator partners at Digital Resources, Inc., on the brand-new cutting-edge television broadcast studio inside Rock Hill High School.  The Studio, located in Frisco, Texas, features as a student-run daily live television show broadcast to over 1800 students, teachers, and administrators of Rock Hill High School.

The Control Room, Studio, Rack Room, and Audio Control Room were designed and built out with student success, budget, and functionality in mind. The design was a collaborative effort between Digital Resources, Prosper ISD, Crux Solutions, and TBC. The solution engineered was a complete IP/4k end to end broadcast system.  The design allows for flexibility and future expansion to accommodate the school’s changing needs and resources. The technology that was incorporated in the systems allows students to utilize all mediums to deliver content, including through social media outlets.  The experience and training the students will experience allows for advanced knowledge in future careers.

TBC Provides Technical Furniture for Colorado Rockies Renovation

TBC Provides Technical Furniture for Colorado Rockies Production Control Room Renovation

Colorado RockiesWorking with Diversified Systems, TBC has provided the technical furniture for the Colorado Rockies renovation of their Production Control Room.  In celebration of the team’s 25th anniversary, the Colorado Rockies set out to renovate Coors Field from the club level all the way to the clubhouse.

Included in these renovations is the first 1080p60 HDR LED videoboard and HDR-capable upgraded production control room installed in a sports venue.  The PCR is the culmination of an 18-month engagement with Diversified which considered consoles, ADA access, raised flooring, acoustics, and electrical.  Coors Field’s revamped control room is built around a Ross Video Acuity switcher and Evertz EQX10-FR video router (180×180). Diversified also upgraded the room’s two existing Evertz DreamCatcher replay systems to 10-bit for incorporation into the HDR workflow.  In addition to the upgraded production control room equipment, TBC worked with Diversified and the Rockies to support full acquisition, editorial and archival management with upgraded HDR Evertz DreamCatcher replay systems and AVID Nexis/Interplay with NL Tech AutoIngest to manage all graphical content, control protocol and KVM for associated systems in the broadcast production control room.

Before any technology integration began, TBC worked with Diversified to determine control room orientation, console and ADA ramp locations, raised flooring, cooling, power and electrical conveyance requirements; ASHRAE class recommendations for cooling systems, fire and life safety recommendations for the space and interconnections to other stadium systems; as well as acoustic NC ratings, NRC ratings, and STC ratings with wall construction, ceiling, and partition recommendations.

The Rockies game-day production team also transitioned the graphics operation to Ross Xpression character generators, resulting in not only HDR-capable content but also a streamlined workflow.

“The workflow has changed dramatically,” notes Kent Krosbakken, senior director, in-game entertainment and broadcasting, Coors Field.  “The biggest change came in the way that we deliver our content to each of our boards in the ballpark. We are now using Ross Xpression to drive content to the boards. With this technology, our prep time has decreased immensely.”

Production Control Room - Coors Field

Sports Master Control Room Revamp

TBC Consoles has completed our largest consolidated Master Control Room to date with Rogers Sportsnet of Toronto, ON.  Featuring state-of-the art IntelliTrac and TracWall products.  The broadcast facility was revamped to replace custom wood consoles with modular and adaptable TBC technical furniture.

The project consisted of several buildings that were brought into one central MCR area and featured an open concept, semi-circle design.

Sportsnet is a Canadian English-language sports specialty service. It was established in 1998 as CTV Sportsnet, a joint venture between CTVLiberty Media, and Rogers Media. CTV parent Bell Globemedia then was required to divest its stake in the network following its 2001 acquisition of competing network TSN. Rogers then became the sole owner of Sportsnet in 2004 after it bought the remaining minority stake that was held by 21st Century Fox .

PBS network moves toward large screen displays in their facilities

PBS network moves toward large screen displays in their facilities

PBSKeeping up with the industry trend toward large screen displays, consoles and monitor walls are increasingly being outfit with large screen displays and multiviewers rather than individuals.

Utilizing TBC’s TracWall system, along with our versatile SmartTrac Consoles, these large displays at PBS are mounted on monitor frames and articulating arms.  Each display has the capability of monitoring 14 broadcast feeds at a time.  Similar to a multiviewer, the use of TBC’s technical furniture in any broadcast facility provides the best “mousetrap” for displaying your content on these big displays while keeping ergonomics and space constraints in mind.
