The Broadcasting of the Vancouver Olympics

Every four years the world’s greatest athletes get together at the Winter Olympics to accomplish competitive first and break records and the games in Vancouver, Canada in February this year were not different. But the athletes weren’t the only ones doing things better and faster: OBS, the Olympic Broadcast Services, created by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in May 2001, also stepped to the technology podium with a winning effort that included a number of Olympic broadcasting firsts. It was the first time OBS was fully in charge of operations as there was no longer a host broadcaster from the host nation organizing committee and it was the first time the Winter Games were fully HD and in Surround Sound.

The Eurovision Song Contest 2011

During a meeting in Monaco in 1955, EBU Director Marcel Bezençon (1907-1981) launched the idea of bringing Europe together in a televised, pan-European music competition in the style of the Italian San Remo Festival.

After Austria’s first and only previous Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) victory in 1966, Conchita Wurst succeeded in bringing the ESC 2015 from Copenhagen to Vienna.

The Pinnacle of 4K Lens Quality

Fujifilm is at the forefront in the development of 4K UHD optical technology. Since the emergence of two-third inch (2/3”) broadcast cameras and subsequent technology transformation which was initiated by the launch of Sony’s 4K 2/3” HDC camera series, other camera manufactures soon followed this trend (Grass Valley, Panasonic, Ikegami and Hitachi etc.). We believe that it is safe to state that this is not just a trend, as was witnessed a few years back with the introduction of 3D broadcast technologies. The demand for 4K Ultra High Definition production acquisition, workflow and transmission technology has thus increased since the first live trail productions back in 2014 (FIFA World Cup). Since then we have seen a substantial surge in 4K UHD live productions, especially in the past twelve months, which to some extent can also be contributed to the increased proliferation of 4K UHD TV sets in private households and resulting demand for more 4K UHD content.

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.
