VISION3D Helps Kick Off the CFL Grey Cup | 3D Printing | 3D Fabrication

Earlier this fall the Canadian Football League asked Media Resources if we’d like to run a play at the 106th Grey Cup festivities. As an integrated sign services provider we put our entire team at their disposal: digital LED scoreboards, sign service & installation, grand format printing and 3D fabrication.

For this game our 3D (VISION3D) and installation divisions were selected to play. Our part of the game plan included 3D props ranging from a 6’ long football, giant CFL logo’d helmet, size 186 shoe, goal post, essentially everything in the picture but the players!

Object not as heavy as they appear

The process started with CNC carving out of EPS foam (3D printing not used for this project). Next came hard coating for durability (so the players could sit on the football). Hand airbrushing and vinyl graphics got the pieces ready for kick off. Then we lateraled to our installation and service team in Edmonton to build the walls and mount all the pieces — a Media Resources team effort!

While Media Resources scored big at the Grey Cup the final victory went to the Calgary Stampeders winning 27 to 16 over the Ottawa Redblacks. Congratulations Stampeders!!

If your company is interested in discussing 3D props for your next big game, give the VISION3D team at Media Resources a call!

Media Resources Builds New Oshawa Generals Scoreboard

State of the Art digital sports scoreboard designed, built and installed by Media Resources for the Oshawa Generals OHL hockey team in the GM Centre in Oshawa Ontario.

 

 

 

 

Back in April 2016 the Oshawa Generals and the City of Oshawa announced that they will be releasing a Request for Quotations for a new state of the art sports scoreboard system for the GM Centre and the Oshawa Generals OHL team.

The announcement states:

“This is an exciting time for the Oshawa Generals organization and our fans. We have been working with the City of Oshawa over the last few months to come to an agreement to have a new video scoreclock in place for the 2016/2017 season. We have the best fans in Canadian Hockey League who have continued to support us through this journey; this gives us the opportunity to provide them with the best game day experience possible,” said Rocco Tullio, President and Governor, Oshawa General Hockey Club. “This puts us one step closer to being able to submit a bid, to be a host city for a Memorial Cup. It took an incredible partnership between the Oshawa Generals, City of Oshawa and General Motors Centre to make this a reality.”

Media Resources quickly got to work on our quotation and in July of 2016 we got the news that we had won the bid to build and install this incredible state of the art digital sports scoreboard using our VisioniQ Sports Scoreboard System.

This particular installation includes a 4-sided centre hung scoreboard features four 11’x16′ 5.2mm video screens, an upper illuminated advertising ring and four corner identification/sponsor ad units, a beautiful 5.2mm lower ring, 360 degree cameras, GOBO lighting, and a completely redesigned front end control room with state of the art software.

“The City of Oshawa, Oshawa Generals, and Spectra Venue Management selected Media Resources to design, manufacture, install, configure, and service a state of the art video scopeboard system for the General Motors Centre.  We selected Media Resources based on their experience across a board range of projects, the obvious high quality of their product and attention to detail, competitive pricing, and their ability to offer a complete turnkey solution utilizing their in-house team of professionals. 

Once they were selected, Media Resources was excellent to work with providing ideas, sound recommendations and solutions over and above our initial expectations. They completed the entire project on time and have been available every step of the way.  Once installed, they helped to train us on the custom software, on the use of the video display system, and have been present at our initial games to ensure everything went smoothly.  The 5.2mm 4-sided display with matching lower video ring is simply stunning; and the City, Team and fans love it!  We could not be more pleased with the results”

 – Vincent Vella, General Manager GM Centre

This amazing, high resolution sports scoreboard made its debut on Friday September 30th at the 2016 Oshawa Generals Home opener against the Peterborough Petes.
