I had every intention of writing yesterday or today letting everyone know that we were amping up for our first HD event. But, I'm sure most of you knew that was coming.
So, now it's over :) If you were at the game, I hope you enjoyed what you saw. I know there were a few glitches and unsightlies, but hey, it's pre-season! If you weren't at the game, everything went perfect and we're up for an award ;)
This was the first real stress test for the control room and we've got some issues to work out, certainly. There are several issues just with the Megatron computers getting things synced up. Other issues circle around our graphics computers. And then there's our cameras... There are plenty of things to keep us busy. It's funny, though... it seems like we have quite a bit of work just to get us back to the point we thought we should be at at the beginning of this night ;)
Such is the nature of the beast.
I did ask one of our interns to take some pictures of the production... here's some of the better ones I got...
Maybe some day I'll get some pics in-game. Until then, keep imagining ;)
Now, it's time to shake it all off and focus on a football game tomorrow. After that, the Caniac Carnival and back to the long hours next week.
