Ole Miss Productions Integrates with Ross Video's Sports Workflow


Ole Miss Productions adopts Ross Video’s Vision  Switcher and XPression Real-Time Motion Graphics Systems, simultaneously producing in-game scoreboard production and streaming broadcast for a leading sports network.

The compact but powerful Vision 2.5 MLE  Switcher with integrated MultiViewers allows for one Technical Director to automate the difficult task of switching two complex shows simultaneously.

“Not only does the Ross Vision  Switcher deliver, but it delivers with even more power and flexibility than we were first aware of. Truthfully, ‘amazing’ doesn’t even come close,” said Shane Sanford, Manager of Creative Services, Ole Miss Sports Productions. 

On one channel of XPression, Ole Miss automates the Score Bug, introductions, animated Transitions, full Screens, lower thirds and replay burn bugs for their streaming broadcast production. The second channel of XPression runs an alternate graphics look for the in house scoreboard display. Ole Miss Productions leverage the XPression Datalinq server to connect Daktronics for clock and score, as well as Stats Crew for statistics.


“For anyone who has ever worked with an .xml file from StatCrew, they know that the individual player information bounces all over the file and is never in the same place – with XPression the ability to search query a StatCrew is time saving,” continued Shane. “With pretty much a click of the a mouse, the sky is the limit to what we can produce out of our control room.”

“Ole Miss Productions’ technology upgrade has allowed for them to pick up a contract to produce University of Mississippi games for a major sports network,” said Jared Schatz, Director of Sales for Central/Southeast USA, Ross Video. “The productions are amazing!  This is a big win for the network, the fans, the school and Ross Video.”
