Upon opening in 2016, the US Bank Stadium production control room initially featured a range of Ross products, including the 8ME Acuity Production Switcher, XPression graphics, and the Mira+ Replay System. This setup provided a solid foundation for their operations.
In 2019, they further improved their capabilities by integrating the PIERO sports analysis system into the production control room. The addition of PIERO allowed the SkolVision team to enhance their in-game highlight packages with visually appealing graphics that showcased player speed, distance travelled, and player separation from multiple camera angles, all in real-time. This integration significantly elevated the quality of the Vikings’ broadcasts.
However, the SkolVision team still lacked a crucial component: an LED display solution that could feed all displays throughout the stadium pixel accurately and render graphics in real-time. In 2022, they introduced XPression Tessera, a robust LED Content Management system developed by Ross Video. This addition proved to be a game-changer as it revolutionized the Vikings’ workflow and greatly enhanced the fan experience.
