POSTED: OCT 26, 2005
The Musketeers Staff, along with a few very supportive sponsors, have been hard at work helping make the off ice production for all Musketeer home games better with each game. On Saturday night (10/22/05), they put a microphone on a game night referee, Mike Elder was the first referee to use the microphone, and did an outstanding job in it’s use. “The USHL officiating staff was very supportive of our desire to help bring the fans closer the game.”
The Musketeers also have a 360 degree overhead PTZ camera above the center face off circle. Thanks to Tyler Solma at Midwest Alarm, we can literally see every seat and every portion of the ice with this fantastic camera. Currently it’s being used to support some of our promotions and to pan the rink during intermissions. The fans absolutely love it! During the game it brings a live overhead shot of each face-off, shots of the penalty boxes, team benches, and various other activities throughout the game. As we work to improve the use of this camera into our games, we’ll bring you live shots of the action during the game as well.
