Hong Kong Cable Television is now using Ross Video’s XPression 2D/3D CG and motion graphics systems for its Sports Studio.

The pay-TV and internet services provider offers a range of channels including news, finance, sports, and entertainment.

Patrick Lee, controller of broadcasting and engineering operations at Hong Kong Cable Television, said: “We are using XPression in most of our Sports Studio and use it as scoreboard and banner displays for soccer programmes.

“XPression’s real-time animation is a true benefit, and XPression provides us with a very cost-effective yet powerful performance. Also with the various models offered, we can pick and choose only the functions we need for specific areas of our facilities, while still improving the on-air look.”

Brian Olson, marketing product manager for XPression, added: “Scalability is a strong feature of XPression. With 8 hardware and software editions, customers can choose from our basic rendering engine, called BlueBox, which offers no GUI but can be controlled via automation, all the way up to our high-end Studio editions, which offer full design and playback capabilities.”
