Dome Productions is a relatively unknown company. Anyone who has walked by Gate 13 at Rogers Centre while attending a Toronto Blue Jays game has likely missed the small Dome Productions office sign, which looks more like a cornerstone time-capsule on the building’s facade. However, there’s a good reason you’ve never heard of Dome. They don’t need to advertise or even brag about their accomplishments because they are one of the world’s most renowned broadcast technology companies.
Why should they? After all their leader, Mary Ellen Carlyle, has been driving broadcast innovation at a rate that rivals Silicon Valley for more than three decades. Furthermore, Mary Ellen and her team have reached the pinnacle of their profession while reporting to a board of directors that includes some of the most well-known names in sports, including ESPN, TSN/RDS, and Rogers Sportsnet, as you’ll learn in this episode.
