Baylor University Adds Second Mira Instant Replay at the New McLane Stadium

Baylor McLane

The McLane Stadium, home of the Baylor Bears, now boasts a Mira Instant Replay Server to drive the scoreboard.

Long- time customer, Baylor University, has added a second, eight-channel, dual-user Mira Instant Replay server to cover the action at the newly-built McLane stadium. Located on the Brazos River and directly adjacent to the I-35 Corridor, McLane Stadium serves not only as the front door to Baylor University but also as the East anchor of downtown Waco. The $266 million stadium is a once-in-a- lifetime opportunity for Baylor University to bring football back to campus and contribute to the growth of downtown Waco and development along the Brazos Riverfront.

BaylorVision, the university’s 14-year-old athletic video production department, produces over one hundred events per year at six venues across the Baylor campus. To engage fans on the digital scoreboard at the Ferrell Center, home of the Baylor men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball teams, BaylorVision staff researched several multi-channel instant replay servers. The selection of the Mira system followed extensive testing and testimonials from existing Mira customers.

“You cannot beat the price-performance of Mira,” said Jeromy Otter, Baylor’s Director of Athletic Video Production. “We were able to save tens of thousands of dollars by selecting Mira over competitive products. Not only is Mira affordable, the operation is so intuitive that anyone can pick it up in a couple of hours.”
