Indeed. I think they should add scoreboards in the 4 corners of the Stu. Just saying, Banks hit a shot and I was wondering why he wasn't listed as a player in the line-up at that time, then noticed that we were stuck in time for the rest of the night.
To be fair, more scoreboards would not have fixed last night's issue. It would just mean there would've been more wrong scoreboards.

We tested the boards this morning and they are operating properly again.

Yep, i was just think of future placement of the scoreboards. Aren't we updating/replacing these?

That is the plan, yes. The operations that send data to the boards will probably remain the same or similar. They'll just look nicer.

We need end zone video boards like Clemson's new football video board! ;);):lol:

The in-house feed was better last night. Wish there were more replays but better overall. I'm sure it's a lot easier though to focus on just one production instead of trying to do two.

That was not an in-house feed. That was network.

I know you all have things under control but I do have a question in this regard. The center court overhang boards (can't think of the word for it 🤣) is four square SD monitors and I know it is not HD. Are there also plans to replace those screens or the board with HD monitors?

So why all the equipment outside to produce and transmit the game?

A simplistic answer is that production trucks include a satellite transmitter and satellite dish. They save space, time and cost of broadcast productions. That is off the top of my head. TV productions const quite a bit of money to set up an in-house system. I think that I have this about right.

I know Minnesota and NC State are replacing their video scoreboards in their football stadiums this off season. I read an article regarding the Minnesota video scoreboard that said the life expectancy of those video scoreboards is about 10 years. Pretty sure Daktronics also confirmed this in the article.

Interesting that all ACC schools had to set up in-house systems, including a studio, before the ACC Network ever launched. NC State spent over $1 million on construction.
