BaylorVision named top university video board display for 2009
If you’ve been to a Baylor football, basketball, baseball, softball or volleyball game since 2002, you’ve seen the work of BaylorVision — Baylor’s in-house video production group — on the video boards at Floyd Casey Stadium, the Ferrell Center, Baylor Ballpark and Getterman Stadium.
It’s impressive stuff. The team intros and starting lineups might be the most memorable, but BaylorVision is also responsible for creating all the other material you see on the video boards during a game, ranging from instant replays to promotions. The video below provides some examples of their work from the past year; click here for a higher-resolution sample.
In late January, a group of BaylorVision’s peers from other universities honored the crew as the nation’s top video display at the university level. The award was given at a conference put on by the leading professional organization in the game operations industry; to put the honor in context, at the same conference, video groups from the Houston Astros, Miami Heat and Miami Dolphins were recognized as the best in Major League Baseball, the NBA and NFL, respectively.
For BaylorVision to be honored by its university peers in front of fellow crews from every major level of sports is quite an honor indeed. Baylor is the first private school to win the award; past honorees include Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado and Florida State.
Sic ’em, BaylorVision!
