Studio46 Assists with Kentucky Head Coach Mark Pope’s Introductory Press Conference

Mark Pope was introduced as the 23rd head coach of the University of Kentucky basketball team on Sunday, April 14th at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY. Pope, the captain of the Wildcat’s 1996 NCAA National Champion team, was greeted by a packed crowd of over 20,000 Big Blue Nation fans excited to meet their new coach. To capitalize on the excitement, Studio46 Media’s Event and Video Teams worked alongside UK Athletics to provide production support for the event. Our team’s expertise helped lend to the incredible environment and played a key role in broadcasting the event to the masses.

Studio46 set up a 20’ x 11.5’ ground-supported video wall to act as the step-and-repeat for the press conference. The video wall was used to display the school’s and sponsors’ logos and graphics sporting a “Welcome Home” message for Mark Pope. Studio46 also operated a six-camera system with image magnification for the Jumbotron. In addition to operating in-arena video, Studio46 helped live stream the event to over 100,000 fans and ESPN’s SEC Network.

During his press conference, Head Coach Mark Pope stated, “Entitlement leads to sorrow and depression. And gratitude leads to joy,” a quote that resonated with our team. Studio46 appreciates the opportunity to assist UK Athletics with this great event and wishes Mark Pope the best as he begins his coaching career at the University of Kentucky.
