SilverVision is the system that runs the four-sided LED screen centre-hung clock at the heart of Halifax Metro Centre arena.
It broadcasts all the in-game action, instant replays, spontaneous fan reactions, and 15 or 30 second commercials during live events.
The SilverVision control room and editing suite are located in the Halifax Metro Centre.
Why use Silvervision?
The clock's central position means that your product or service gets front row attention by up to 10,000 spectators at a single event. The clock is the go-to source for information on scores, time remaining, replays, contests, and rally cries to cheer on the team.
Your existing TV commercial--once converted into AVI format--can be quickly and easily inserted into broadcast rotation. Even raw footage, still photographs, and text can be masterfully blended by our in-house editing team to produce an informative and exciting new ad.
Clear broadcast quality on 10' by 12' LED screens; an arena-wide audio system; and the ability to broadcast live in HMC and around the world via webcast or fibre-optic link make SilverVision a natural forerunner in the event coverage industry. Our capabilities include a full service, on-site editing suite and our hardware and software programs are upgraded on an annual basis.
Our production team operates with a combined 40 years of industry experience. Production, graphic design, editing, and directing are staples of our team's successful history.
You will know exactly when, how often, and during which event your ad broadcasts.
