HD Production: FIS Alpine Ski World Championships 2011

The Opening - The Competitions - The Medals - The Broadcasting

For the second time since 1978 Garmisch-Partenkirchen was the “heart of alpine skiing” for two weeks. The host broadcasting operation for this year’s most spectacular winter event was in the hands of GAP TV2011, a joint venture of ARD and ZDF. Under the leadership of ZDF the host broadcaster took care of the production of the international signals of all the competitions (Super-G, Downhill, Super Combined, Nations Team Event, Giant Slalom, Slalom), and the services to unilateral broadcasters from 8th to 20th February.

The opening ceremony on 7th February was produced by the Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) on behalf of the host broadcaster in 1080i/50Hz and 5.1 surround sound: Alpine skiing was presented as a sport defined by a sense of family and friendship between competitors from past and present, but also as a dynamic sport driven by continuous innovation. The complete opening ceremony was produced with projection technology including the largest available video projectors (Barco) using the landing area of the ski-jump as a gigantic snow-screen.
