The Washington Capitals are attempting to defend their Stanley Cup Championship. If they defeat the Carolina Hurricanes then they will host the New York Islanders. On the last Saturday of the season, Tony Winthrop supplied video production for MSG. Winthrop was the locker room Cameraman for MSG on their pre game skate as well as the postgame coverage in the Islanders room.
Winthrop used a Sony XDCam 800 with camera light and wireless microphone. MTI has worked for MSG for the past 12 years with video services in the Washington DC region. We have worked on the MSG telecasts of the New York Rangers and New Jersey Devils
Normally MTI arrives at the truck in time for the pre game skate which is between 930 and 1030 am est. The interviews are recorded and then edited in the truck for use in the pre game show which is produced in the truck one half hour before the start of the game.
When the game is completed as soon as the Islanders open the locker room, Winthrop accompanies Shannon Hogan to begin the post game process.
MTI is currently in its 30 year of operation providing video production in the Washington DC region.
We work with a variety of gear from Sony XDCAM to Canon C300 Mark II, Sony FS 7’s as well as the Panasonic AGDVX 200.
With the Islanders already in the 2nd round via their sweep of Pittsburgh, they will be well rested to take on the Caps. Games One and Two will be at the Capital One arena, with an off day in between. Games 3 and 4 will be in Brooklyn at the Barclays arena. Game 5 will be back at the Verizon Center, Game 6 returns to Barclays if needed and the final game of the series will be hosted by the Caps
