There Are Spyders In the Broadcast Booth at the Home of the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals

Vista Systems has supplied three Spyders to the broadcast booth for video and scoreboard operation at The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona where the NFL‘s Arizona Cardinals make their home.

“The three Spyders, which comprise one system, give us all the inputs, outputs and layering we need to accomplish production design that maximizes the fan experience,” says Michael C. Conner, Video and Scoreboard Operations Manager for the Arizona Cardinals Football Club.

“The beauty of Spyder is that it‘s very flexible and agile,” he continues. “We really like that it‘s resolution and aspect-ratio independent, too. That matters to us because our LED South Board is a 33×9 aspect ratio (96 x 27 feet) and our LED North Board is 16×9 (40 x 22.5 feet) with a strip taken out for scoring information. And we have a CCTV network that‘s 16×9.” Additionally, Spyder‘s GUI lends itself to a “very intuitive artistic design process,” he reports.

Spyder‘s ability to deal with myriad sources is also key for the Cardinals‘ applications. Inputs include seven server channels, routed videotape and computer outputs, and clients‘ own DVR and DVD player output.

“The nice thing about Spyder is that it accommodates our production requirements which are very dynamic,” Conner explains. “And it adapts to all different types of events. We may do a football game one week, a kids‘ fair the next and soccer after that.” The University of Phoenix Stadium hosts the Fiesta Bowl annually and recently played host to the college football BCS Championship in January. Fans enjoyed a sold out US/Mexico soccer game and the stadium is an ideal venue for monster-truck events.
