Adelaide Oval with XPression Tessera

The Adelaide Oval plays host to cricket matches, two Australian Rules football teams, soccer games and live concerts and events. Now KOJO, the company responsible for all game day production, was asked by the Adelaide Oval to further develop the stadium control room by adding XPression Tessera from Ross Video’s line of real-time graphics products and workflow tools.

Perfect for sports scoreboards, ribbon boards and studio video walls, Tessera enables users to link together multiple XPression engines to create seamless output of scenes across large or irregularly assembled display panels. Frame-accurate, non-tearing recall of graphics and clips across any section of the display is possible with XPression’s new Multi-Engine Sync technology, enabling dynamic animations and transitions. Tessera was first seen in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atalanta, Georgia – which features a ‘halo’ screen running around the perimeter of the retractable roof.

Commenting on the Adelaide install, Stephen Lord from KOJO highlights control as being a key factor for the production team. “Andrew Daniels, CEO of Adelaide Oval, gives us a simple brief, to deliver a world class fan experience. As existing Ross customers we were aware of the Mercedes-Benz stadium project and after a thorough review of platforms we identified Tessera as a powerful way for us to run ribbon boards and integrated experiences at Adelaide Oval.”

“Fortunately, we received a great deal of support from the Ross team who worked with us to create custom control panels in DashBoard, Ross Video’s open platform facility control solution. As a result, we’re now using DashBoard to control a number of different devices in addition to Tessera and we’re very pleased at how easy the system has been to setup and configure. Sports is a competitive market and we’re always looking for innovative ways to improve the game day experience.” (2/18)
