2018 Venue Production Summit

Since the first renderings of the 360-degree Halo videoboard were released nearly three years ago, Mercedes-Benz Stadium promised to blaze a trail in in-venue video production and technology. More than 230 attendees – including representatives from 12 NFL teams – traveled to Atlanta for SVG’s annual Sports Venue Production Summit to see the Halo in person, and learn more about the gear and personnel responsible for powering it.

The two-day event kicked off on Tuesday with a behind-the-scenes tour of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Attendees were invited inside the 1080p60 video control room that powers the Halo videoboard.
