About the Event
Events like the PanAm Games provide exciting and high-stakes opportunities to showcase new technology, and this summer’s Toronto 2015 event was no exception. While the story of the Games was told in numerous venues across the region, the bookends for event were two enormous shows at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
Presented by Michael Nunan and Anthony Montano, please join us for a behind-the-scenes look at Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and a close look at how the Broadcast Audio Team for these events tackled the intricate chore of creating a memorable television experience for a massive Americas-wide audience.
