Big Screen Network Chooses Vizrt GraphicsVizrt?s Viz|Trio will also be used for 2006 UCLA Football Games at the Rose Bowl (March 29, 2006)
During the Rose Bowl National Championship Game between the University of Texas and USC at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA earlier this year, a crowd of 94,000 spectators watched a display of 3D animated graphics on the stadium video board designed and created by Big Screen Network Productions, Inc. using a Vizrt Viz|Trio 3D graphics system.
Big Screen Network Productions, which has produced video board and stadium entertainment for the last 21 Super Bowls and 3 Olympic Games, purchased the Vizrt Viz|Trio on behalf of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, hosts of the popular annual New Years parade and game. The Viz|Trio purchase was part of an initial capital investment in new equipment ? including a Thomson Grass Valley Kayak switcher, and a Sound and Video Creations Video Click Effects system ? to help upgrade the look and efficiency of the show. As a specialist in producing video board and stadium entertainment since 1983, Big Screen Network Productions has worked for the Tournament of Roses since 1997.
Using Vizrts Viz|Artist, the companion 3D animation product for graphics design, as well as Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop software, T.J. Nuckolls, director of creative design for BSN, created all of the 3D elements for the Viz|Trio graphics templates.
