An Engaging Discussion
Our own Jeff Volk participated in a panel discussion on the change in control room technologies as a part of SVG's Venue Technology Summit at Sports Authority Field. A summary of that presentation can be found below in a great article by SVG.
Excerpt for SVG article
Once upon a time, a venue control room was a fairly straightforward facility with a fairly straightforward function: serving video to a big board and audio to a big PA system. Today’s control room, however, is responsible for much more, said Alpha Video VP Jeff Volk, during a panel discussion at the SVG Sports Venue Technology Summit at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver on June 23.
“It’s more of a fan engagement center than a control room. Not only are in-venue displays part of their purview, but handheld and forward-facing mobile devices as well. - Jeff Volk, Director of Alpha Video Sports & Entertainment
