quattro media Gets Creative With Drone and Cineflex Cams at FISA WRCH 2017

quattro media host-broadcasts the World Rowing Championships with the support of NEP, AVS and Measure in Sarasota/Bradenton, Florida using Cineflex Gyro tracking systems and – for the first time – Live-Drone integration

When hurricane “Irma” hit the Florida west-coast just 10 days before the opening of the WRCH event, nobody really believed that the 2017 rowing world championships would really see the light of days. Luckily the damage in the Sarasota/Bradenton area kept within bounds and the green light could be given to finally invite more than 950 athletes, officials and media over to the Suncoast to witness medal competitions in 26 different rowing events. Local organizers together with hundreds of volunteers did an unbelievable job to organize and setup the Benderson Park into a high-class sport event arena that provided best conditions and especially calm and fair wind conditions, staging outstanding competitions that will be remembered for a long time. It was not an easy decision for FISA and their broadcast production partner quattro media to go with a new approach to update their rowing live coverage with the integration of production tools like a live drone camera that lately received a lot of critical feedback especially out of the sports event perspective.
