any idea what the staffing and the skill sets are required to operate these boards? I believe there is at least one control room somewhere.
I would expect that their is a select situational playlist developed for each game. There is a control room for basketball that is next to the team shop in the lobby. It has a window facing the court with video feeds. For the Rink, I would surmise it is either at mid Rink on the booth above, or in the booth next to the Bud Ryan Room. Rodney who announces, provides commentary in a booth between the two team benches, near the sin bin.
The skill set would be that of a videographer and video producer to integrate the packages from Daktronics and HC captured customized material.
