World-class equipment Innovative technologies for the football world cup

Weltmeisterliche Ausstattung

For the live broadcasting of the 2014 Football World Cup, we equipped the German public broadcasters ARD and ZDF with tapeless HD production and broadcasting solutions. Most of the needed equipment was delivered directly to the International Broadcast Center (IBC) in Rio de Janeiro.

The technology was adjusted for the special production requirements of the Football World Cup and integrated in the relative operation fields such as studio, direction, central control room, production and post-production.

Additionally the Südwestrundfunk (SWR) rented supplementary equipment for their reporting from „Campo Bahia“, the quarter of the German National Football Team.
