Two Z-HD5000's are in a studio confguration on tripods, while one is used as a shouldermount handheld within EMU's Convocation Center — an 8,000-seat arena. "For live event entertainment, EMU has invested in broadcast-quality, HD cameras, and the picture quality is outstanding," says Marty Masewicz, an A/V systems integrator with TSE Services, which specializes in the design and installation of big-board displays and A/V installations for sports, education, and other applications nationwide. "As the public becomes more media-savvy, picture quality is a key consideration, especially when the image will be displayed on a huge video screen." Another important consideration was user-friendliness, since EMU students often operate the video equipment in the Convocation Center. According to Masewicz, the HD control room was designed to serve the production needs of other athletic facilities on the EMU campus, including Rynearson Stadium, the 30,200-seat football stadium next door to the Convocation Center.
