US sports broadcast uses Lighthouse’s R4 LED screen15 October 2007
The Sunday Night Football set-up includes an XClyps video playback system from Chyron, which supplies the video feed from NBC’s mobile production studio. The system is composed of an HD background loop with a live feed of scores and HD-SDI input. The data is then fed through a Lighthouse LIP-KX Interface Processor to the screen.
“We decided on the Lighthouse R4 screen because of its very fine resolution,” commented AG Light and Sound production manager James Watral. “It’s ideal for this type of ‘close up’ televised application. We also have full support from Lighthouse Technologies on every project we work on, which has been invaluable.”
Joe Lapchick, Lighthouse sales manager for Eastern US region, added: “We are finding an increasing amount of interest in 4mm LED screens within the US broadcast industry. The fine pixel pitch and quiet operation of the fanless design make it ideal for these environments. AG Light and Sound has full confidence in this product and is now using it on very exciting high-profile projects, not least of which is the NFL, and we are proud to be associated with it.”
