The Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
Moving to a new, modernized stadium is not a straightforward undertaking, as anyone who’s ever made this move will tell you. The only thing that’s more complicated may just be staying in an old one. Ever since the Olympique Lyonnais club was officially established in 1950, its home was the playing field of Stade de Gerland, which is now more than 100 years old. Rich in historic architecture, the stadium had to undergo multiple incarnations to accommodate various seating formations and FIFA regulations. Through periods of construction and renovation, it ultimately reached a maximum capacity of 43,000.
Riot Games’ multiplayer online battle arena title has moved to the core of the world’s leading professional video game contests since its release in late 2009. National and regional competitions feed into one of the most eye-catching and prestigious tournaments around: the League of Legends World Championships.
Australian sports venues are spread across a vast geographic territory that is larger than the continental US or Europe. Because much of the country’s interior is sparsely populated, covering events has until now required extensive crew travel hours and expense. Historically it was common for production team members to spend up to two days travelling to cover a one-day project. Meanwhile, the logistics of moving crew between locations meant people and infrastructure were used inefficiently. The fact that Australia’s robust market for live, local television production relies heavily on a small pool of skilled freelancers compounds the issue.
Having transformed itself culturally and economically in less than three decades, China now stands as an example to follow when it comes to the adoption of new technology – including within its enormous broadcasting sector. Despite having only emerged in the last 30 years, the Chinese television landscape nonetheless accounts for a third of the world’s viewers. Now those increasingly affluent households will have the opportunity of experiencing new immersive content courtesy of the first Dolby ATMOS capable outside broadcast vehicle in the country, with Genelec monitoring at the centre of the set-up.
No yacht race comes more extreme than the Volvo Ocean Race – encircling the globe over a course of 45,000 nautical miles, facing waves of over 40m and extremes temperature ranges from -5 to 40°C. The 22m length yachts cross 4 oceans in an event stopping at 12 ports as teams battle it out on racing legs lasting more than 20 days across a global course lasting 9 months. And for the crew, all of this with only a single change of clothing! It is perhaps no surprise that this extreme challenge should become a sporting event made for TV viewing.

Abstract – Tasked with producing more live coverage with squeezed resources, broadcasters are turning to at-home/REMI (remote-integration model) production. Correctly implemented, at-home production can reduce the movement of people and equipment; increase the utilization of equipment; reduce on-site set-up times; and maximize the efficiency of production teams. Historically there have been three major challenges with at-home production; Latency and how to mitigate it; Control and how to extend workflows to the venue; Infrastructure and how raw signals are transported back to base. This paper will clearly explain how these issues are now solved by interconnecting and orchestrating distributed production resources over Wide Area Networks. Solutions partners Net Insight, Calrec and Grass Valley will explain in this paper how a shared technology approach is already providing broadcasters with a complete, proven and easy way to generate significantly more live content.
Say you’ve built up a name for yourself producing international live events. You’ve conquered new locations, traversed time zones in both directions, and dragged cables across the international date line on New Year’s Eve to party like it’s 1999. You’ve spent years traveling the globe with literal boatloads of cumbersome production gear. There’s still a world of live events and content out there to produce. How do you choose where on earth to go next?

If you’re a football fan who never misses your team’s matches on television, it’s a safe bet that you’ve enjoyed some of the benefits of a digital sports tracking system. Driven by technologies that can track and collect data on the movement of players, officials, and the ball, these systems have been enriching sports broadcasts and team analysis for several years.
Methods of capture, transportation, protocols, control and even delivery are changing. Disparate hardware elements are becoming no more than nodes on multi-lingual networks, with audio and video equipment sending control, audio and video signals across lightweight fibre cabling.
A decade ago, Slomo.tv, a leading international supplier of cost-effective, high performance server-based video recording and replay systems introduced its first 4-channel sports video judging system, videoReferee®, at the 2007 World Hockey Championship in Moscow. Working closely with Vladimir Mironov, the chief engineer of Moscow Krylatskoye Ice Arenas, slomo.tv developed the concept of a modern video judging system for ice hockey. Since then, several generations of slomo.tv videoReferee systems have been installed in more than fifty arenas throughout the world.
The move to 4K is the biggest challenge faced by the live production industry since the advent of HD over a decade ago. And even though the majority of viewing is still in HD or even SD, demand for UHD – driven in part by a consumer market already hooked on 4K, HDR content from IP-based VOD providers such as Amazon and Netflix – is only increasing. This brings an unavoidable necessity for outside broadcast companies to be able to call upon the latest UHD technology – from cameras and lenses to production servers and monitors. In striving to support 4K live production by stocking a large and diverse 4K hire fleet, ES Broadcast Hire is helping to pioneer the UHD upgrade – and positioning itself as one of the UK and Europe’s leading 4K hire companies.
Mediacorp pioneered the development of Singapore’s broadcasting industry, beginning with radio broadcast in 1936 followed by television broadcast in 1963.
