The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Black Box as a corporate sponsor. Headquartered in Lawrence, PA, the company provides broadcast and postproduction clients with mission-critical monitoring and control solutions, video-processing and -distribution infrastructure, and high-performance networking systems to improve collaboration and productivity, lower operating costs, and simplify backend support systems.
Broadcast Strategic Account Manager Bill Frazier notes that KVM systems are getting larger and more sophisticated: “In sports-production environments, digital KVM matrix systems give operators the flexibility to sit down at a single workstation and gain access to various video sources, including graphic engines, replay servers, video editors, and social-media servers.”
