The athletic department has spent $10 million to prepare for the launch of the ACC Network, adding equipment and converting facilities so that its games can air on the new TV channel. Production of Tech sporting events will now originate from two new control rooms in the south end zone portion of Lane Stadium. The south end zone complex is now home to two control rooms, an engineering room and offices. Virginia Tech began work last November to convert rooms that had previously been used for other purposes, such as for the Tech football team’s postgame press conferences. But most of the $10 million has been spent on TV equipment, not for construction. Tech has bought everything from walls of TV monitors to replay machines to fiber technology. The new engineering room is connected to all of the Tech athletic venues and is also linked to ACC Network headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. Tech will now be able to broadcast two home events that are being held at the same time, which it could not do before. – Mark Berman, The Roanoke Times, Read More
