FIBA delivers ambitious FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 production with Gearhouse
In what FIBA Media describes as its biggest and most ambitious TV, digital and social media coverage global production plan ever, this World Cup marks a momentous change in the production, coverage, presentation and multi-platform availability of the event. It’s featuring a host of innovations, including augmented reality, referee-audio, and a broadcast SuperFeed.
Gearhouse Broadcast is also providing host commentary services for FIBA Media at six of the eight venues. This enables rights owners to deliver bespoke broadcasts to their audiences – either on site at the arena or remotely using real-time audio-over-IP networking technology.
Ed Tischler, Managing Director at Gearhouse Broadcast (UK) said: “With viewer expectations so high these days, the pressure is on to make productions stand out by delivering a large amount of quality coverage across a multitude of formats. Rights owners like FIBA that are looking to further enhance the quality of their coverage are turning to Gearhouse Broadcast because of its reputation for innovation and its track record of working with host broadcasters at the biggest events.”
