TSN, a division of CTV Globemedia/Bell Media, is Canada’s leader in sports broadcasting and continues to be the overwhelming television destination for sports enthusiasts and fans across the country. Results from the 2007/08 Canadian Roper Reports national survey revealed TSN is the top-ranked network among sports viewers in English Canada for the “Channel Most Enjoy Watching”, “Best Channel for Watching Sports”, “Best Sports News” and “Best Overall Quality of Sports Coverage”. TSN has consistently been voted the top top source for sports from sports viewers across English Canada since the inception of the Roper surveys in 1998.
TSN2 was undergoing a set re-design and required a unique and leading-edge audiovisual solution. The displays needed to be vibrant, functional and provide a look that was visually appealing enough to captivate audiences, both at home and in the studio.
THE ADVANCED SOLUTION
Working with TSN2 and CTV, Advanced installed a large 1 x 4 Orion videowall that served as the backdrop to the set. The videowall was configured to display and scroll content and imagery across the screen to provide a visual aid relevant to the discussion taking place by the onscreen announcers.
In addition to the main videowall, Advanced attached 2 smaller screens to the front of the host’s desk to provide increased display options. The smaller screens also displayed content, images and game playbacks. The combination of the large videowall and the desktop displays made the new TSN2 set literally come to life during sports commentary and created a visually collaborative environment for sports fans. To ensure ongoing functionality and performance, Advanced also provided complete installation services for TSN2 and CTV.
