Designed primarily for NHL pregame, game, and post-game shows and NHL highlights programming, the set features 21 Panasonic 42-inch plasma screens, four Sharp 15-inch LCDs, two Christie DW3K projectors in a custom projector rig, and ten Pioneer industrial DVD players, all from Electrosonic.
The displays are fed by an array of sources, including the DVD players, digital Betacam decks, SDI routers and DDRs. Eight of the plasmas are incorporated into the research/screening area of the set, behind the host and talent, where viewers can see staffers logging and previewing incoming game footage.
Electrosonic also provided a Sunrise Systems EXL 6000 LED ticker measuring six inches high and 36 feet long, which was customized by set designer, Jack Morton Productions, to curve and run along the top of the set. The ticker interfaces with OLN's Sports Media product for instant updates of game stats.
